Porcelain Veneers What to Expect
Porcelain veneers are made from an ultra thin, high quality ceramic that is custom made to fit precisely over your teeth per Dr. Lotardo’s specifications. The material reflects light much like a natural tooth and is also both durable and stain resistant.
Dr. Lotardo will begin the process by removing a small amount of tooth structure to ensure a snug fit for the veneers. Dental impressions will be taken and your custom matched veneers will be fabricated in a dental lab.
Once complete, Dr. Lotardo will permanently secure the veneers to your teeth, making adjustments as needed for fit and polishing the surface for a beautiful, natural appearance. Your new smile will last for many years with good oral hygiene and regular dental visits where we can monitor your veneers and look for any signs of wear or damage over time.
