Veneers Bismarck, Garrison – North Dakota
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made porcelain shells which get bonded to the front surface of your teeth, creating a beautiful new smile. Due to the versatility of the treatment and durability of dental porcelain, Deeter Dental often recommends porcelain veneers as a component of your smile makeover procedure.
The dental porcelain material used in the construction of your veneers offers several advantages over other restorative materials:
- It is harder than your natural tooth enamel, resulting in a long-lasting restoration
- Veneers mimic the translucency properties of tooth enamel, providing you with very natural looking results that are nearly indistinguishable from adjacent teeth
- It is highly resistant to stains and should not show signs of discoloration
Dental Problems Fixed by Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are an ideal treatment to correct:
- Discolored teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Crooked, uneven, or misaligned teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Worn teeth
The varied applications for this procedure make it an excellent option to help you correct just about any cosmetic dentistry problem you may have.
Porcelain Veneer Procedure
Dr. Terry Deeter will need to remove a small amount of your tooth surface before applying your porcelain veneers. First, we take an impression of your tooth and send it to our dental lab for use in the creation of your veneers. Once we receive the finished product from the lab, your porcelain veneers will get bonded to the surface of your teeth.
Before your new porcelain veneers are permanently bonded to your teeth, Dr. Deeter will also make sure they fit properly and match your natural tooth color. Your teeth will then be cleaned, polished, and etched to facilitate the bonding process. Dr. Deeter will apply bonding cement and place the veneers on your teeth. We use a special light to activate the bonding agent in the cement. Before you leave, Dr. Deeter will clean up the surrounding teeth, removing any excess bonding cement from your tooth’s surface.
Porcelain Veneer Options
Deeter Dental works with two kinds of porcelain veneers:
- Direct (prepless) veneers
- Indirect veneers
Dr. Deeter will make the direct veneers chair-side by hand from composite, bondable material. They are an excellent option for young people with undersized teeth producing large spaces. Since Dr. Deeter creates your direct veneers in-office, we can complete the entire procedure in one office visit.
We send indirect veneers out to a dental lab. We use Minot Dental Lab and Aurem Labs for the creation of all of our porcelain veneers. Both labs have received training from the Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies, the premier cosmetic dentistry institution in the United States, and produce the finest dental restorations available. Indirect veneers are better suited for guests who have worn or rotated teeth, or who want to change the size, shape, color, or position of their teeth.
