What is a porcelain veneer?
Porcelain veneers are very thin porcelain laminates (as thin as 0.3 mm), which are securely attached via special dental adhesives to the front part of your teeth only. This eliminates any heavy cutting of the front teeth, which is more desirable as stated in the commandment “Respect the tooth”. Veneers can change an entire smile by masking the original tooth underneath.
Porcelain laminate veneers are highly aesthetic and can mask any imperfections of your natural teeth such as dental gaps, staining, chips, and even slanted or rotated teeth. They require a minimal amount of tooth reduction (approximately 0.3 to 0.8 mm) and are therefore a more conservative restoration than crowns (caps). Porcelain veneers allow us to alter tooth position, shape, size, and color of your teeth. They are truly a remarkable tool to restore your smile.
Therefore, veneers are often referred to as “instant orthodontics”. This enables the cosmetic dentist to straighten and even out your teeth within two weeks instead of waiting two years with conventional braces! Porcelain veneers are a revolution in modern dentistry!
Lumineers™ and no prep Veneers
“Respect the tooth” is one of Dr. Goodman’s 10 commandments to cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Goodman started using Lumineers™ in 1990’s, long before marketing efforts made them very popular. These veneers are made from a special porcelain material, which allows the cosmetic dentist to place these veneers with little or no preparation. The tooth is virtually untouched in some cases.
It does not necessitate the use of a local anesthetic either. The laboratory time required for the fabrication of a porcelain laminate veneer is approximately 10 days or less.
It is typically not necessary to fabricate any type of temporary restoration because the teeth are left untouched or in some cases only minimally prepared.
No preparation veneers are very popular but can only be done in certain cases, where existing conditions allow for such treatment.
What kinds of porcelain veneers are available?
- No-preparation type veneers, also known as Lumineers™
Teeth are not cut at all and veneers are placed on top of your existing teeth. The “no preparation” (no cutting) veneers such as Lumineers™ are not suitable for everyone. Only an expert in dental veneers knows the limitations and indications to guarantee the most beautiful and aesthetic outcome. Generally speaking, teeth that are already too large and protruded to begin with are not good candidates for no prep veneers due to the fact that the teeth will appear as “too much” (i.e. a toothy smile). Smaller teeth, and in particular inclined teeth are a much better indication. Please contact us to discuss your case.
- Full preparation veneers
The traditional preparation veneers usually require 0.7 -1 mm of reduction of the front tooth surface. It is done when teeth are too big and large and a smaller smile is desired.
- Minimal preparation veneers
Minimal preparation veneers were perfected by Dr. Goodman and require minimal preparation of your teeth. They are ideal when a patient has smaller teeth, inclined teeth, or short teeth and desires a fuller a smile. This conservative approach using a very minimal preparation technique can achieve absolutely beautiful results. These veneers are also referred to as “contact lens veneers” because of their extremely thin nature. A perfect harmony between the dentist and his master laboratory technician is mandatory.
