What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth like materials specifically created to cover the front surface of the tooth. Once these shells are bound to the tooth, they change the color, shape, size and length of the tooth.  There are two types of dental veneers: porcelain and resin. Porcelain, however, are preferred because of the stain resistant qualities of the material and the gums tolerate it better than resin.

How do porcelain veneers work?
In order to create porcelain veneers, Dr. Trinh will have to remove some enamel off the tooth before bonding the porcelain shells. We do this so that the overall thickness of your tooth remains the same once the veneers are in the place. During the process, the patient may feel sensitivity and Dr. Trinh may opt to use some numbing agents to address this sensation. One of our high-tech dentistry tools is the Magic Wand, which is a painless computerized dental shot.  In recent years, a new kind of porcelain veneer called Lumineers offers the benefits of veneers without initially removing the enamel. These specific types of shells are thin enough that no special preparation is needed. Only certain patients with small teeth or gaps between the teeth will candidates for Lumineers.
