Porcelain Veneers
Nampa, ID


Dental veneers are extremely thin, tooth-shaped shells, fabricated to cover the surface of your teeth and help improve esthetics. They are typically made of porcelain, a durable material that mimics the appearance of natural teeth. These shells can help change the size, shape, and color of your teeth. The procedure is minimally invasive and often seen as a conservative alternative to dental crowns for your anterior (front) teeth.

Why Dental Veneers?


Dental Veneers are used to fix a variety of aesthetically displeasing problems, including:
•  Worn down teeth
•  Chipped or broken teeth
•  Teeth with gaps between them (We can use larger veneers to close the gaps)
•  Misaligned teeth that are uneven or misshaped.
•  Teeth that are discolored for a variety of reasons

You will find many advantages in choosing dental veneers over other restorations. Porcelain is a stain resistant material that can be shaded to match existing teeth, or even brighter to whiten your smile. Porcelain does not only provide a natural appearance, but it is also well accepted by your gum tissue, the minimizing risk of infection. Like most restorations, veneers eventually need to be replaced, but they last between 10 and 15 years.

Unlike dental crowns, veneers do not require a significant reshaping of your teeth, reducing procedure time and discomfort. Veneers are fabricated to match each smile, making it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between your natural tooth and the veneer.

Veneers should be treated like your natural teeth. Make sure to practice routine brushing and flossing to ensure a long life for your veneers. You will not need specialized equipment to clean your new teeth!


The Procedure for Dental Veneers


To receive veneers, you will need to complete two office visits. During the first visit, you will need to explain to us you desired results. Dr. Shaun Christensen will examine your teeth and make sure that veneers are a viable option. Once we have determined that veneers be right for you, we will prepare the teeth. This requires a lightly buffing and reshaping of the surface, to allow space for the veneer. We will take an impression of each tooth, and determine a shade with you, to best suit your needs. Afterward, we send the impressions to the lab, where they will fabricate your new veneers. This usually takes about 2 to 4 weeks.

During the second visit, we will treat each tooth with a special liquid to help ensure proper bonding. We will then make sure each veneer fits securely before we apply the cementing agent. Once the veneers and cement are in place, we will use a specialized light to activate the chemicals in the cement. This will help harden the cement and bond the veneer quickly.

After the process is complete, you will receive care instructions, and be asked to return for a follow-up visit to make sure that your gum tissue has accepted the veneers.
