Porcelain veneers, made popular by many Hollywood actors and TV makeover shows, are an effective way to achieve your own ideal smile. Veneers are very thin facings that are permanently bonded onto your teeth. Porcelain veneers can be used to change the shape, color, size and even spacing of your teeth.
At Beachside Dental, Dr. Savidan will go through a meticulous process to make sure your veneers are successful in giving you the smile you desire. This process involves a series of photographs of your teeth and smile. Next, your teeth will be lightly prepared or shaved down in order to create enough space for the veneer. Sometimes, there is no preparation necessary in order to make the veneers. A detailed impression is then taken of your teeth and send to a dental laboratory, along with all of the other data Dr. Savidan has collected. Once fabricated by the dental lab, the veneers are carefully bonded onto your teeth, giving you your own Hollywood smile.
Porcelain veneers are very durable and resistant to most stains and usually last a very long time. With good hygiene and frequent periodic exams and cleanings by your dentist, porcelain veneers can give you a lasting and glowing smile.
