What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells crafted from dental-grade porcelain that are placed on the front of teeth to conceal imperfections, such as:
Dr. Han works with talented dental ceramist Nelson Rego to create highly realistic veneers that fit your smile for the most natural-looking results.
Are Veneers Right for You?
- Lengthen short teeth
- Close gaps between teeth
- Achieve more consistent tooth shape
- Correct crooked teeth
- Brighten their smile
- Cover chipped teeth
Since a veneer covers the entire front surface of your tooth, any imperfections can be completely concealed in one treatment. During your consultation, Dr. Han can evaluate your smile and discuss your goals to determine if porcelain veneers are the best solution for you.
Creating Personalized Results
Dr. Han's interactive smile design process is an essential part of your customized treatment. With cosmetic dentistry, patient input is invaluable to ensuring that we achieve your goals. We encourage you to bring photos of yourself, especially if you were satisfied with your smile at a younger age, or images of a smile you admire.
From there, Dr. Han can design your custom veneers to reflect the qualities you like and to address any of your concerns. He will create a wax mock-up of your veneers to help you visualize the outcome of your procedure. This allows you the opportunity to provide feedback and make any adjustments for the best fit and aesthetics.
Receiving Your Veneers
Typically, patients will need to attend two appointments to receive veneers. During your first visit, the doctor will need to prepare the teeth. He will gently etch the front of each tooth receiving a veneer to remove some of the enamel and create a textured bonding surface. Your veneers will then be sent out to our trusted dental ceramist to be hand-crafted.
For the most natural-looking results, we also work with one of the best dental ceramists in the area to craft your veneers.
Once they have been fabricated, you can return to our office for placement. The doctor will first ensure that the veneers fit properly and meet your satisfaction. Dr. Han will then securely bond your veneers to each tooth using dental cement.
We also offer prepless veneers for patients who require little to no alteration to the existing tooth structure. Prepless veneers require only a single appointment and provide exceptional results for the right patient. Dr. Han can evaluate your smile and recommend the best type of veneer for you.
