Loretto Family Dentistry is offering Veneers as part of our wide range of teeth restoration solutions. Veneers are thin, custom made shells that are usually bonded on the front surface of teeth to enhance their appearance. Veneers also help in the preservation of the tooth structure. Dental veneers are usually made using either resin composite or porcelain and usually match the natural color of teeth. They are an ideal way to either transform a smile or restore damaged teeth.
Veneers have also demonstrated remarkable clinical performance. They are highly biocompatible, meaning that they bond quite well with your natural teeth. They are also among the less invasive cosmetic dental treatments currently available around the globe. Not only are they effective functionally, but veneers can also help to restore your self-confidence
Veneers Placement Process
Preparations are necessary before the veneers are placed by our team. For porcelain veneers, the process begins with the removal of a small section of the enamel from the front and the sides of teeth. This is usually done to create room for the placement of veneers.
What then follows is the creation of a mold matching the tooth to be worked on. The mold is then delivered to our dental labs for the custom making of the veneers. Here, an appropriate shade is selected. The veneer has to fit the tooth surface perfectly well for optimum performance.
The veneers are installed during your next visit to our office. We may need to double check the shape and fit. If adjustments are needed, they will be done before bonding. For composite resin veneers, the process is similar. However, in this case, we use a composite material which is hardened using a special kind of light. We finish by smoothening and polishing the veneers to give them a natural look.
Who Can Have Veneers?
Veneers are one of the simplest of aesthetic dentistry procedures. They are completely harmless, and the procedure itself is painless. All that is required is a reasonably healthy tooth and the procedure can be performed. It gets even better, because veneers are also among the most affordable of aesthetic dentistry procedures.

Love everyone I've encountered here! I was told about Dr. Mackie a few months ago and just wish I'd known about her sooner! She is very thorough and kind. It's a bit of a drive for me, but I don't mind and actually look forward to my visits!
