Porcelain veneers are one of our most versatile cosmetic treatments at Bristol Dental Clinic. Bonded directly to the front of your teeth to form a more perfect smile, veneers are thin shells made of porcelain. Veneers are generally suggested by our dentists to repair breaks, chips, and fractures in teeth. They can also be used to change the size and shape of a tooth that is irregular or unusually short. Drs. Laban and Monica Bontrager will help you determine whether dental veneers are the right option for helping you achieve your smile goals.
Designing, creating, and applying veneers generally takes two visits to our dental office. During the first visit, we will prepare your tooth by removing a small layer of tooth enamel. This helps prevent your veneer from looking too bulky as we accommodate its thickness. Molds and impressions are then made and sent to a dental laboratory. Your veneers are created in a few short weeks and sent right back to our dental office. When this occurs, we will invite you back into our office and temporarily place your veneers on your smile to make sure they fit properly. After any final adjustments have been made, our team permanently cements the porcelain veneers into place.
