The procedure for porcelain dental veneers in Naples

Having a beautiful, healthy, natural looking smile can boost your confidence and self-esteem. Unfortunately, many people are denied this great feeling due to flaws in their teeth. Dr. Bradley Engle’s team of dental professionals at Engle Dentistry in Naples offers a versatile cosmetic treatment that can address many cosmetic concerns quickly and easily.
Rather than a lengthy process involving multiple treatments to correct various aesthetic issues, porcelain dental veneers are able to create a brand new smile in just a couple of weeks. They can be used to change the size, color, shape, and spacing of your teeth. The thin, lustrous, porcelain shells are bonded to the front surface of teeth with beautiful results. The treatment can be completed in as little as two visits after the initial consultation.
Consultation Appointment
The doctor will conduct a comprehensive dental examination to determine that you are a good candidate for this option. If oral conditions such as gum disease or decay are found, they may need to be treated before cosmetic treatment can commence. The doctor will explain the treatment plan in detail and answer any questions you may have. It is important that you understand what the treatment can and cannot do so that you have realistic expectations. It is recommended that you have your teeth professionally cleaned and whitened before veneer placement.
Preparation Appointment
During the preparation appointment, you and the doctor will collaborate on selecting the perfect shade of porcelain. The teeth are prepared by removing a minimal amount of enamel to make room for the veneers. If mild misalignment is an issue, the teeth may be slightly recontoured and brought into better alignment. Impressions of the prepared teeth are taken and sent to the dental lab along with shade selection and other pertinent information. Attractive temporary restorations may be placed on the prepared teeth to protect them until the permanent ones are ready.
Placement Appointment
When your permanent restorations arrive from the lab (which takes approximately two to three weeks), you will return for delivery. The doctor will remove the temporary shells and place the final ones to ensure fit and color. If any adjustments are needed, they will be adjusted by hand for precise fit. If needed, the final color can be adjusted with the shade of the cement. The veneers are permanently bonded to your teeth and polished to a lustrous glow. You will leave the office with a beautiful new smile!
