Veneers - Tel Aviv Dentist - Dr. Meytal Salman
Veneers are thin custom-made thin shells of porcelain that cover the front surface of your tooth to improve the appearance. Veneers are a wonderful option for patients which are unhappy with the color, shape, size or even the orthodontic position of their teeth. The procedure is very conservative by nature, and enamel is removed only from the front surface of the tooth. Usually less than 1mm and the entire back side of the tooth remains untouched by the preparation. This makes veneers a more conservative approach to crowns for smile improvement. Veneers can be used to treat a single discoloured, misshapen or even fractured tooth; Or widely placed on multiple teeth to create your very own “Hollywood Smile”.
Porcelain Veneers treatment includes about three visits to complete the process:
The first one will be a consultation where we will discuss with you the issues you are having and the result you are trying to achieve.
The second visit will be to prepare your tooth or teeth for the veneers. We will need to remove about 1/2mm of enamel from the tooth’s surface to compensate for the thickness of the veneer. Once the preparations are complete, we take a final impression/scan to send them to our lab to fabricate your veneers by hand. We will prepare great looking and functional temporary veneers and bond them in place; while we wait for the final product from the lab.
The third visit is when we apply your new veneers to your teeth. We take care to make sure you and the Doctor are pleased with the result before they are cemented. We take pride in our work and we use the best labs to create your beautiful smile.
It should be noted that there is a more economic option to “cover” up your teeth using composite resin. Composite veneers can be built up directly in your mouth, with the veneers able to be bonded and moulded to the front of your teeth often in a single dentist visit. Although veneers of composite material tend to be more economical than porcelain but they are less durable and may be in need of replacement more often. Composite Veneers/Bondings are a great immediate affordable option to consider.
