It’s easy to see why smile makeover patients at Providence Dental in North Las Vegas love porcelain veneers. They correct a multitude of cosmetic flaws and deliver dazzling results for my Las Vegas area patients.
A porcelain veneer is an extremely thin shell (about .5mm or 1/64 inch) that is permanently attached to the front of a tooth. They are custom made for each patient. Veneers cover chips, cracks, and stains. They can also improve the shape, size or length of a tooth.
While preparing a tooth for a veneer is less invasive than preparing a tooth for a crown, it is not a reversible procedure. A microscopically small amount of enamel must be removed to make room for the veneer. Thus, the tooth can never be restored to its original condition.
When performing the multi-step veneer procedure, the dentist must consider the surrounding teeth, the patient’s bite, the gums, the health of the affected teeth, and the patient’s goals and expectations. Most smiles contain varying shades of tooth enamel – sometimes a considerable range – further complicating the color selection process.
The dentist must also work closely with the dental lab technician who fabricates the veneers. The lab technician’s skill level and quality of materials is just as critical as the expertise of the cosmetic dentist.
