Veneers

Dental Veneers

Veneers are routinely used to cover teeth which are discolored, worn, chipped, or misaligned. Veneers are used for many of the same reasons as bonding, but they involve a different procedure.

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or resin that measure less than 1.5mm thickness. First, Dr. Foksa will prepare your teeth and then take an impression of the prepared teeth. Next, he will place a temporary filling material in the space, and send the impression to a dental laboratory to have the veneers fabricated. At following visit, the veneers are tried in and then cemented into place.

Although porcelain veneers are more expensive and time-consuming than bonding, they are esthetically more appealing. Typically porcelain veneers are difficult to stain, making veneers a very popular solution for many people seeking that beautiful smile.
