About Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are bonded directly to the surfaces of refined teeth. Veneers are crafted from the safest and highest-quality materials to ensure the natural appearance of the enhancement and patient satisfaction. Porcelain veneers can be customized to alter a tooth's:
Porcelain veneers give you the ability to address multiple aspects of your smile that you find to be problematic and transform the overall appearance of your teeth. Sometimes used in conjunction with gum reshaping treatments, porcelain veneers are a great option to achieve the beautiful smile of your dreams. Before your treatment begins, Dr. Emmi will determine what cost you can expect for your veneers.
Placing porcelain veneers within your smile takes time, precision, and skill. Dr. Emmi is a true artist when it comes to crafting one-of-a-kind smile makeovers. When installing porcelain veneers, our Wilmington, Delaware cosmetic dentists remove as little of the tooth’s structure as possible. They begin by removing about half of a millimeter of enamel from the tooth’s surface. Once each tooth has been prepared, an impression will be made of your smile. It is from that impression that your veneers will be milled at an outside laboratory. While waiting for your custom set of veneers, temporaries will be installed within your smile. The final product will be sent to our Wilmington, Delaware practice, located next to Dickinson High school in New Castle County.
Your porcelain veneers will then be placed on your teeth for a final fitting and minor adjustment, if necessary, and then bonded securely in place. Within a matter of two visits, you will be able to see your smile’s dramatic transformation from ordinary to extraordinary.
What to Expect During Your Consultation
Our dentists will determine whether you are a candidate for porcelain veneers during your free cosmetic consultation. During your initial appointment, you will meet with our team of smile specialists, your oral health will be evaluated, and you will discuss with our doctors your short-term and long-term goals for treatment. By communicating with our team what you hope to achieve through cosmetic dentistry, we can gain a clearer understanding of how best to help you. We can help determine what you will pay for your porcelain veneers before treatment begins.
By performing a thorough analysis of your teeth, gums, bite, and jawbone, we can determine whether veneers are the most ideal treatment option for you. We will present you with several treatment options that will work well for your budget and smile and educate you about each. We want you to be able to make an informed decision regarding your dental care, and by communicating to you what to expect before, during, and after treatment, you will be able to do so.
