Will my porcelain veneers look fake?
- Posted on: Jan 30 2020

At Galleria Dental Aesthetics, our team of professionals want to ease patient concerns regarding the final appearance of their restorations. Most patients are relieved to learn that their doctor is a true artist when it comes to fabricating natural-looking restorations such as porcelain veneers. With today’s modern dental materials and the use of a quality laboratory, patients can achieve beautiful smiles with porcelain veneers and more!
How does a dentist create aesthetic restorations?
When considering restorations such as porcelain veneers, patients are educated by their dentist on the ways in which these repairs are made. Imperfections such as stained teeth, unusually shaped teeth, and teeth that are damaged will benefit from placing porcelain veneers over the top. These restorations are made with great care.
First, the teeth are prepared with the removal of a thin portion of enamel off the front. Then, molds are made and sent off to a dental laboratory with specific information from our dentists regarding the desired size, shape, and color of the repair. The veneers are made to exact specifications to ensure a natural appearance once bonded in place. Within a few weeks, patients can make subtle or dramatic improvements to their smile, depending on their unique needs. Patients will find that the porcelain veneers made by our team are created with great care and attention to ensure they look as natural as possible when placed. By matching the color, shape, and size of the existing teeth, these veneers will blend in beautifully with one’s appearance and allow individuals to feel confident in the appearance of their cosmetic dental work.
