Suffering from crooked, stained, cracked, or broken teeth can have a negative impact on the way you feel and act around others. If you are embarrassed by your smile then porcelain veneers could be the ideal solution for you!
What are veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells placed over the front of your teeth and bonded directly on the surface. These shells are stain-resistant and cover any cosmetic imperfections you might have, leaving you with a beautiful and long-lasting smile.
How are they placed?
This procedure usually requires up to three appointments: one for a consultation and two to make and place the veneers. But don’t worry, many teeth can undergo this process at the same time.
The first step in this treatment is to trim some enamel off of your natural teeth. Then, using his expertise, Dr. Lim will make a model of the teeth and send it to the lab that will manufacture your veneers.
Once the veneer is back, Dr. Lim will temporarily place it on your tooth to examine its fit and color. He will remove and trim the veneer as needed to achieve the right fit for the smile you want. When the look is just right, the veneers bonded to your teeth with special cement and dried with a special light. We will schedule a follow-up visit to make sure the veneers are working for you and looking great.
It may sound tricky, but Dr. Lim has learned the art of smile design, functional aesthetics, and occlusion. With a real eye for detail, he is the best dentist to help you achieve the smile that will bring back your confidence!
