In this post from Alaska Premier Dental Group we are focusing on porcelain veneers, which are used extensively in cosmetic dentistry.
Porcelain veneers (also called laminates) are custom made to permanently cover the front part of one or more teeth. Wafer-thin, super-strong veneers can fix a host of tooth problems including:
- Teeth that are misshapen
- Teeth that are too short
- Teeth that are misaligned
- Gaps between teeth
To create perfect-fitting veneers, we first create a model of your teeth. Next an experienced dental technician uses the model to make the veneers. In some veneer procedures, a small amount of the enamel from the face of the tooth has to be removed. Today’s veneer process leaves most of your healthy tooth structure.
