If your teeth are chipped, stained, gapped or slightly misaligned, they can be fixed with veneers. Dr. Patel is trained to restore flawed teeth with durable veneers, giving you a more uniform, beautiful smile.
Dental veneers are thin shells that attach directly to the front of your teeth. Infinite Smiles uses traditional porcelain veneers and ultra-thin veneers similar to Lumineers to cover chips, cracks and heavy stains.
Veneers are traditionally made from porcelain, which is a very durable ceramic that closely simulates your natural teeth. They are a long-term solution to cosmetic problems, unlike teeth whitening, which must be touched up every few months.
Both ultra-thin and porcelain veneers are strong and highly durable. Our in-house lab ensures the best match to your teeth, so no veneer appears out-of-place.
To properly place your veneers, we first acquire digital images of your teeth. Dr. Patel uses these to evaluate your smile and discuss any necessary adjustments. He will also create a 3-D model to preview your new smile before the procedure.
Before your veneers can be applied, your teeth must be thoroughly cleaned and buffed. This ensures a secure bond between veneer and tooth.
For traditional veneers, you may need to have a thin layer of enamel removed, as well. This ensures your veneer does not stick out past your gum line. Ultra-thin veneers, similar to Lumineers, require less removal of the enamel than traditional veneers.
The entire process takes only 6 hours. We use dental cement and a special light to harden the cement, securing the veneers to your teeth.
Your new veneers will match the shade and shape of your surrounding teeth, giving you a healthy, natural smile.
For the most part, you will care for your veneers like you would your natural teeth. Simply brush twice a day and floss once a day, and your veneers will last for years.
You may need to take care to not bite into anything hard with your veneers. And remember that veneers can stain like natural teeth, so limit common tooth staining foods and drinks.
We look forward to seeing you!
