How Do You Select A Hue That Works For Porcelain Veneers?


An Inside Look at the Process of Creating CEREC Dental Veneers

Also readily identified as dental veneers, porcelain veneers are simply crowns that are fitted upon the teeth. Normally, they are not used for a specific dental issue other than aesthetic purposes. For example, if the enamel on the teeth is dilapidated, chipped, discolored or if teeth have moved due to the aging process, veneers can help.

Many people opt for a porcelain veneers procedure because they are unhappy with the results of other treatments, like bleaching. They want their smile to look bright, white and youthful, and veneers can do just that! If you’re interested in dental veneers, contact the professionals at Lakefront Family Dentistry. Dr. Derek B.

Porcelain Veneers are Colored to Match Your Teeth

Since dental or porcelain veneers must blend in with your existing dental infrastructure, the color of the actual product is extremely important. Sometimes, patients decide to work with a color that is slightly lighter than their natural teeth, which can be easily done with Dr. Hauser’s CEREC system. Dr. Hauser possesses more than twenty years of proficiency not only with porcelain veneers but also with many other cosmetic dentistry treatments.

 Veneers Can Match Your Tooth Color, Shape and Size

In dentistry, there are generally 16 colors that are employed for cosmetic purposes. When you decide you want dental veneers, you probably will want yours to be as white as possible without looking like they are unnatural. As technology has progressed, so has the construction of veneers. They used to only be available in one color, but now, most people have veneers built on their upper teeth in what is known as a bleaching shade. The most popular among these shades are BL 1 and BL 2.

A Good Dentist Adjusts the Transparency of Your Veneers

Obviously, shade is one of the paramount things to consider when obtaining dental veneers, but another decision centers around how much natural light will be able to penetrate the porcelain. The transparency of veneers must be adjusted so they match your existing teeth. There are certain types of porcelains that do not have this capability, and when this substance is laid over a gold crown, it often looks false. Therefore, the type of porcelain and the placement is extremely integral to any veneer procedure. At Lakefront Family Dentistry, we use only the latest technology for all of our cosmetic procedures to produce a natural-looking, beautiful smile!

If you decide that a dental veneers treatment is right for you, it’s important to consider which future dental procedures, if any, you plan to get. If you plan on whitening your teeth regularly, the shade of your veneer must be lighter to match your future smile. Color selection for something that can last for nearly two decades is not something to be taken lightly.
