Porcelain Dental Veneers and Lumineers

Porcelain Dental Veneers

Porcelain veneers have been changing peoples’ smiles for over 25 years. Dr Schwedfeger was one of the first dentists in Rochester, Pittsford, Fairport & Brighton to change peoples’ smiles with porcelain veneers and now his son Dr. Matt Schwedfeger continues his work. He has perfected the treatment since 1984. This restoration has very high success and offers beautiful aesthetics. Veneers can greatly enhance the appearance of teeth that are stained, chipped, worn or even badly positioned. This is the process that started the revolution in cosmetic dentistry.

Who should have their teeth bonded with dental veneers?

The application of dental veneers may be chosen as the teeth restoration technique for basically the same people who may need cosmetic bonding. However, dental veneers are more resistant to stains and discoloration than bonding. So, patients whose teeth no longer respond well to regular teeth whitening techniques may go for dental veneers instead. Porcelain veneers are also a lot more durable. They can also correct worn-out or misshapen teeth by changing their shape.

What are porcelain dental veneers?

Dental veneers are porcelain laminates that may be bonded on teeth. These laminates are fingernail-thin and can act as new outer coating for teeth. They are thin enough and similar enough to teeth that they can easily blend in with the remaining tooth structure. Porcelain dental veneers are often used for the same reasons as bonding; to lighten stains, close gaps and even alter crooked or malformed teeth. They are considerably more durable and stain resistant than bonding. Also once in place they look, feel and function just like regular teeth.

Porcelain veneers can also be used to correct teeth that have been worn from clenching and grinding.

Dr. Schwed did such a terrific job matching my veneers to the rest of my teeth, no one can even tell that I had any work done! I’m much more proud of my smile these days.
