Veneers are thin, wafer-like shells of porcelain that affix to the surface of the teeth. Rizkalla Dental Associates offer exquisitely crafted and carefully placed dental veneers. Veneers can drastically change the smile in significantly less time than orthodontic treatment alternatives. Porcelain veneers by Dr. Rizkalla are a beautiful and timesaving option for patients unsatisfied with the appearance of their smile.
Proficiency in Application and Placement
To accommodate the addition of material, the teeth must be sized down slightly. Although the veneers themselves are extremely thin (often less than one millimeter), teeth can appear bulky if not properly prepared. Dentists must tread the line between proper sizing and tooth preservation because ensuring minimal loss of enamel prevents sensitivity to temperature.
Our dentists and their team are experienced in applying veneers and educated in state-of-the-art methods.
Ideal candidates for veneers have small to average sized teeth and mild to moderate malocclusion. These patients must have a healthy mouth, with no existing cavities or periodontal disease. In the case of complications, prior treatment is necessary before the veneers process can begin.
What to Expect
Our experienced team utilizes modern technologies to ensure the desired outcome.
First, we create a 3D model of your teeth. We prepare teeth to ensure they accommodate the veneers well. These enhancements are color-matched to flatter the face and match any crowns or teeth left uncovered.
Once the veneers are completed, the attachment process can begin. Veneers are placed using local anesthesia and will not take too long. The surface of the teeth is sanitized before the application of the bonding cement. This gel-like substance ensures the veneers stay affixed to the teeth.
Once placed, a light activates the bonding cement and the new smile is completed. After the procedure, we go over care and maintenance with our patients to ensure their veneers last as long as possible.
