During this patient's consultation with Dr. Goodman, the main goals discussed were treating discoloration, size difference, combating the uneven gum lines of the front teeth, as well as masking minor flaws. Dr. Goodman was able to do all of this through Porcelain Veneers. A Porcelain Veneer is a dental prosthetic that is placed on the surface of a tooth, like a shield with endless customization options to size, appearance, and shade. Through a short second visit for impressions, customization, and a light preparation, the Porcelain Veneers are then ready to be created by the lab. The laboratory then takes two weeks to build the Porcelain Veneers or Crowns to fit perfect into your smile. On a third and final treatment visit, the patient's Porcelain masterpieces were seated and any last adjustments were made, giving the patient the smile they had dreamed of. Though Porcelain Veneers are simple to place and delicate in appearance, the role a thin ceramic shell can have in producing a beautiful smile is quite remarkable.
