Summerlin, Las Vegas, and Henderson Nevada
Porcelain veneers are a common way for an experienced cosmetic dentist to change many of the things you do not like about your teeth and smile into things that you do like. At Inspire Dental of Summerlin, your Las Vegas cosmetic dentist Dr. Matthew Wilson makes transforming your smile through porcelain veneers an easy and convenient process.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin ceramic shells that are created to your specific dental needs. The porcelain veneers are bonded to the surface of your teeth to give you a smile that not only looks natural but also feels and works like your natural teeth. At our Las Vegas cosmetic dentist office, porcelain veneers are often used in Smile Design cases to transform multiple teeth and create a whole new smile. They can also fix simple problems like a misshapen tooth or a gap between teeth. With regular care, they can give you that confident smile that you’ve always wanted.
Problems Solved by Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are an important part of transforming more complex Smile Design cases. They can also be a remedy for many of the most common dental problems that contribute to unattractive smiles.
Some of the common dental problems porcelain veneers can resolve are:
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Broken teeth
- Worn teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Gaps between teeth
What to Expect
Porcelain veneers usually require two visits to our cosmetic dental office in Las Vegas. First, Dr. Wilson will give you a comprehensive evaluation and consultation. Next, Dr. Wilson will prepare your teeth for your porcelain veneers by removing a small amount of tooth structure.
Then, Impressions of your teeth are taken and sent to a master ceramist at a highly specialized dental lab to custom design your porcelain veneers. Each veneer is handcrafted with top-quality dental porcelain that mimics the same light reflecting qualities and shade of a natural tooth.
If you are receiving multiple veneers, we can choose a lighter shade of porcelain to provide you with a whiter smile. There is also the option of matching a single veneer to your existing natural teeth if only one tooth is being treated.
While your porcelain veneers are being fabricated, comfortable temporaries will be placed on your teeth.
At your second visit, we remove your temporary veneers and then bond your new custom designed porcelain veneers to your natural teeth. Dr. Wilson will make any necessary adjustments. The final result will be a beautiful smile that makes you proud!
At Inspire Dental of Summerlin, we also provide the option of composite veneers, which are handcrafted by Dr. Wilson. The difference between composite and porcelain veneers is that composite veneers can be placed in a single day, and do not require the use of a dental lab.
Tooth preparation is still required when Dr. Wilson expertly shapes and designs your veneers, bonding the material directly to the front surface of your teeth. Once complete, you will leave our Las Vegas office with a transformed smile!
