"Life-changing," "stunning," and "flawless," are comments that we often hear about the porcelain veneers that Dr. Polly Reese creates.
But far too many people have found out the hard way that not just any dentist does this kind of esthetic work well. Most dentists focus on functionality and are driven by solving a specific dental problem. Cosmetic dentistry demands so much more than that. Beautiful porcelain veneers are a work of art. There are many variables to take into account including the shape of the teeth, the shading, translucency, and texture. If one of these isn’t just right, the veneers could be left looking dull or unnatural.
Dr. Reese strives for perfection with every smile makeover. She has honed her talents with hundreds of hours of continuing education in cosmetic dentistry courses, including postgraduate training at the Spear Education, as well as the Las Vegas Institute. This knowledge coupled with her passion for excellence in cosmetic dentistry means that you will absolutely love your new smile.
The Application Process for Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are very thin shells of porcelain that are attached to the teeth with dental bonding. The veneer itself is 0.5 millimeter thick which is about the same thickness as your fingernail. Porcelain is a phenomenal restoration material that mimics the natural appearance of the tooth because it absorbs and reflects light just like your natural teeth do. It is stronger than your tooth and is highly resistant to future staining.
In order to get a seamless fit, your teeth will need to be prepared for the porcelain veneer by slightly shaving down the enamel. This process is painless and sometimes we can apply the veneers without any tooth preparation. The ceramist Dr. Reese works with will create your new veneers to the exact shade, shape, and color that is prescribed. Veneers can improve the appearance of your teeth for a variety of problems including chips, cracks, misshapen, crooked, or gapped teeth.
