Lipman, D.M.D. offers just that. Everyone from our acclaimed dentist to our patient coordinator will try to make each of your visits an enjoyable one. Our hope is to provide you with the benefit of getting the smile of your dreams in a close-knit practice.
How do Porcelain Veneers Work?
Porcelain veneers work beautifully for our Windsor patients. Essentially, they are thin ceramic shells that are affixed to the surface the teeth.
Consultation: During your consultation, our dentist will evaluate your smile and considerations to determine whether this treatment is right for you. If so, he will then calculate the ideal size and shape of veneers for your individual smile.
Preparation: Preparing your teeth for the veneers to come involves cleaning and resurfacing. A strip of enamel will need to be removed from the assigned teeth, after which a mold of the teeth will be made. This impression will need to be sent to the lab in order to customize your ceramic shells. Because this crafting of your actual veneers may take about a week, it may be necessary for Dr. Lipman to provide you with protective temporary restorations that will look and function quite naturally.
Placement: Once your porcelain veneers are ready, a member of our staff will ask you back to our practice. Our dentist will use a bonding material to meticulously adhere each veneer to the appropriate tooth, and then utilize a light for the hardening effect. Soon enough, your smile will be remarkably made over!
