Porcelain Veneers

Bonding veneers are composed of a resin which is not as durable as the lab processed porcelain veneers and because they are a resin, they do tend to stain/ darken over time. Porcelain veneers are lab processed and are custom made to fit perfectly over the existing tooth. Both procedures require some reduction of the enamel to make room for the veneer or bonding. The porcelain veneers require two visits since lab work is involved; whereas the resin veneers may be performed in one visit.

Dental Veneers can be a less expensive and less invasive alternative to crowns. They are an ideal choice for people with severe staining and discoloration caused by coffee, soda or cigarettes. They can also be used to correct crooked, chipped, misshapen and oddly shaped teeth. Unlike tooth crowns, Veneers do not require the dentist to remove much of the tooth itself, although in certain circumstances removing a part of the tooth might be necessary. Be sure to discuss these requirements with Dr. Garita before the procedure. Veneers will not stain and they are very durable, lasting anywhere from ten to fifteen years. They are perfect for people looking to acquire a pleasant smile.

The first step in getting dental porcelain veneers is to have Dr. Garita cast moldings of your teeth. Once these moldings are cast, the veneers themselves are created. Veneers are essentially thin slices of porcelain or plastic molded to the shape of your teeth. Dr. Garita will then lightly buff the outer layer of your teeth to allow for the added thickness of the veneer. In certain cases, he may also have to remove a part of your tooth. Dr. Garita will then use cement to bond the veneer to your tooth with light beam to achieve a durable bond.
