Veneers are porcelain laminates made of tooth-colored materials that are custom made to cover the front side of your teeth and enhance your natural smile. Each veneer is custom-fitted to your individual tooth, Dr. Hamdan bonds them to your existing teeth. Veneers hide defects like stains, cracks, holes, or misshapen teeth. They also help strengthen frail teeth.
Porcelain remains the most stain-resistant material for making veneers, though veneers may also be created out of resin composite materials. Porcelain tends to do a better job replicating the look of your natural teeth enamel, too. Dr. Hamdan presents your options and recommends the best type of veneers for your specific needs.
After a meeting to talk through your veneer options and the results you’d like to see, you come back for another appointment. Then, Dr. Hamdan shapes your existing teeth to prepare them for the veneers by removing a tiny amount of enamel from the surface. Once your teeth are prepped, he makes an impression of your teeth so the dental lab can create custom veneers that are an exact fit for your mouth.
When your veneers are ready, you come back to have the veneers fitted to each tooth. After cleaning and etching the surface of your teeth to prepare them for the bonding process, Dr. Hamdan applies a special cement and light source that causes the adhesive to bond securely to the porcelain. In a relatively short amount of time, your veneers are permanently in place, and you have a new and improved smile.
