Designing Your Porcelain Veneers
Your porcelain veneers will be custom-made to blend seamlessly with your surrounding teeth. We offer veneers made of IPS e.max® ceramic, which is renowned for its strength, durability, and ability to mimic the look of natural enamel. When planning treatment, Dr. Astles will take notes on the size, shape, and color of veneers that will best achieve your goals and complement your smile. He will then create a custom wax-up so you can view the intended results and discuss any changes.
Applying Your Veneers
Once you have approved your wax-up, Dr. Astles will order a set of temporary veneers. Before placing the temporaries, he will resurface the front surface of your teeth to create sufficient space and an ideal bonding surface for each veneer. Next, your temporary veneers will be attached, and you will wear them for a few weeks while your permanent veneers are crafted. This is an important part of your treatment, as it allows you to tell Dr. Astles about any complications with your bite or changes you would like to make.
After ensuring the proper adjustments are made to your permanent veneers, you will return to our office for a final procedure. During this appointment, Dr. Astles will remove your temporary veneers and bond your permanent IPS e.max® veneers in place, instantly enhancing the appearance of your smile. You will care for your veneers just like normal teeth, and you can return to everyday activities with a beautiful new smile.
In addition to traditional porcelain veneers, we also offer LUMINEERS®. LUMINEERS® feature very thin shells, so they can be placed over the front of teeth with minimal preparation. LUMINEERS® are a good option for patients with very small or worn-down teeth. Ultimately, Dr. Astles will help you determine the type of veneer that is right for you.
It would be extremely difficult to imagine a dental practice more pleasant to use. Dr Astles is one in a million. Im fortunate to have found him and his staff.
