What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are customized, thin shells made of porcelain that are bonded to the surface of your teeth. Each shell covers the front of a tooth, changing the shape and color of your smile. Your new veneers will be designed after your consultation with Dr. Carey, when you discuss your smile goals. A second appointment will allow Dr. Carey to prepare your teeth to accommodate the veneers without changing your bite. In your final visit, veneers are placed on your tooth surfaces and bonded with cement that dries when light is applied, allowing Dr. Carey to ensure proper positioning before the bond sets. You then leave our office with a new, beautiful smile, thanks to a few short visits with our cosmetic dentist.
