Porcelain Veneers & Laminates
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Dental Veneers are a thin, translucent layer of porcelain that fits over an existing tooth to improve shape, color or size.Veneers can make your teeth as white as you want, and give you the smile specific to preference. Treatment with porcelain dental veneers begins with an impression made from your teeth. This impression will allow porcelain veneers to be custom-made for the affected teeth, ensuring a comfortable fit. After the veneer is designed, it is color-tinted to match the surrounding teeth, or to your aesthetic preference, and attached to the tooth with a durable cement. Depending upon the type of veneer you choose, you may be given temporary veneers while you wait approximately 7-10 days for the permanent veneers to be returned from the ceramist. The damaged tooth can then be concealed with a healthy-looking porcelain veneer and a rejuvenated appearance.
Dr. Bassoumi’s experience and aesthetic expertise allows her to design veneers that look both beautiful and natural. The color of porcelain veneers will not change over time, so your teeth can remain bright and vibrant. When properly cared for, porcelain veneers often last for decades and keep your smile looking vibrant and youthful. Veneers are renown to be one of the most drastic procedure to shave years off ones appearance. Practicing good daily oral hygiene and scheduling routine oral exams is the best way to maintain your results. Patients who frequently clench their jaw or grind their teeth at night may consider a small oral appliance to protect the veneers during sleep.

Since each porcelain veneers procedure is customized to meet the unique needs of the patient, the price will be specific to each case.
