Veneers are custom made, custom fitted very thin pieces of porcelain which are bonded to your natural teeth. Veneers are an excellent way to correct tooth anomalies and to alter shape, color, and size of teeth in a very conservative way with minimum risk to natural tooth structure.
The procedure is usually completed in a few appointments. At the first appointment, dental records, photographs and dental molds of the existing teeth are obtained. These are needed to accurately make wax mockups of the teeth with the desired esthetic outcome. At the second appointment, the teeth are prepared which is a matter of reshaping and taking away small amounts of tooth structure to provide the space for the porcelain veneers and impressions of the teeth are made. At this appointment, Dr. Seleem will also fabricate temporary veneers that are cemented in place until the permanent veneers are fabricated. The impressions along with new photographs are then sent to a specialized dental laboratory where the veneers are handcrafted by very skilled master technicians. At the final appointment, your beautifully crafted veneers are bonded in place and your new smile is completed.
