What is a Dental Veneer

A veneer is one of the most beautiful procedures in dentistry. Veneers can greatly improve the aesthetics of a person’s smile with a minimum of tooth preparation. With expert technique, these corrections can last for a long time. A tooth veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is bonded to the tooth after minor preparation. They provide a harmonized esthetic look and the results will last for a long time.

There are different types of teeth veneers. The choice will depend on the clinical findings such as existing tooth color, spacing, and quality of enamel. In general they fall into two categories: porcelain, which is hand built with powder and liquid or E-max veneers, which are made by layers of porcelain.

It is important that thoroughly detailed and esthetic evaluation be made at the start of the veneers process. Diagnostic tools can help you decision. At Obeid Dental we utilize a ‘mock up’, better known as a try-in, of how your future smile will look prior to deciding proper treatment, which more effective than a computer drawing or stone model. In some situations, dental veneers cannot deliver the desired esthetic look, especially if the color of the original teeth are very dark.

The good news is that there are always options. All teeth veneers are handcrafted in our in-house dental laboratory. At Obeid Dental we will make sure that you receive the best treatment to fit your dental needs, esthetic desire and work within your budget.
