Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are an excellent cosmetic dentistry solution for a wide range of aesthetic problems you may have with your teeth. Whether you are unsatisfied with the color of your teeth, have chips, cracks, crookedness, or gaps in your teeth, porcelain veneers are an excellent option.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic material that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are a wonderful cosmetic dentistry option because they are custom made and colored to create the smile you want. When placed by an experienced cosmetic dentist, like Dr. Dwivedi, porcelain veneers look just like beautiful, natural, bright teeth.

If traditional orthodontics is not an option for you, then porcelain veneers can create a beautiful, straight smile in just a few visits, rather than having to undergo years of braces.

Unlike dental crowns or dental bonding, that are usually used on one or two teeth, porcelain veneers can be added to multiple upper and lower teeth. Porcelain veneers are not false teeth; they are bonded to the front of your teeth, providing a bright, new, straight surface that can cover any chips, stains, breaks, or gaps you may have.

It is important to select a cosmetic dentist who is specially trained and experienced when receiving your porcelain veneers. Dr.Dwivedi will make sure your porcelain veneers will both improve your smile to your exact specifications, and make sure your new smile looks natural. With the right porcelain veneers, the color, shape, and even translucency of the veneers will look just like naturally beautiful teeth.

If porcelain veneers are the option for you, it usually takes only three visits to Dr. Dwivedi's office.

During your first visit, you will consult with Dr. Dwivedi about the porcelain veneer procedure and you will discuss the results you would like to see and the problems you would like to correct. Dr. Dwivedi will help you decide if porcelain veneers are right for you, and help you to schedule your next appointment.

In the second appointment, your teeth will be prepared for the porcelain veneers. This involves removing a very small amount of enamel from the front sides of the teeth in order to receive the porcelain veneers. This is done to make sure the porcelain veneers fit seamlessly on your teeth and that they look completely natural. You can be asleep for this part if you prefer.

After your teeth have been prepared, a mold of your teeth is taken and sent to a dental lab with specific instructions on how to create your custom porcelain veneers. You will also be fitted with temporary veneers for you to wear while your custom-made veneers are being created.

On your final appointment, Dr. Dwivedi will have your custom-made porcelain veneers back from the lab. Placing porcelain veneers correctly takes both an artistic eye and scientific knowledge. Dr. Dwivedi possesses both of these criteria through years of experience and education. With his master techniques, Dr. Dwivedi will permanently bond your veneers to the front sides of your teeth.

After your porcelain veneers have been placed, you will be proud of your new smile (which no longer includes chips, breaks, cracks, stains, or gaps). Your new porcelain veneers can improve your self-confidence tremendously, and you will find yourself smiling more than ever before.
