What are porcelain veneers?
a new innovation in the treatment of stained or unattractive teeth that
is now being recognized as the most successful technique in the history
of dentistry for treating these types of tooth problems. Although this
treatment was developed over ten years ago by a doctor in Oswego, British
Columbia, and has been safely used to treat over 11,000 patients in the
United States and Canada, it is only now starting to become well known
by the general public and dental practitioners in the USA. I am proud
to have been part of this pioneering effort during the last 4 years. I
want to share with you what this exciting procedure is and tell you how
we apply veneers in our offices in San Carlos, California.
The procedure itself is both elegant and simple. First, we perform a thorough dental examination to check the soundness and health of existing teeth. Next, we make a mold of the teeth to be veneered. From the mold, thin veneers of porcelain custom fit for the patients teeth are made. Finally, the veneers are permanently applied to the teeth with a special bonding adhesive. The whole procedure takes only a few days.
I have found this to be a safe, economical, painless, and permanent solution to discolored or unsightly teeth, without the drawbacks of more traditional bonding and tooth capping.
technology that makes porcelain veneers possible has literally changed
the lives of many of our patients. Many who thought that they could not
afford to ever do anything about their unsightlky teeth have found that
this simple and effective procedure has given them new levels of confidence,
self esteem, and comfort. See what
it can do!
