Oregon City Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells made of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of teeth to improve smile aesthetics.

Dental Veneers In A Comprehensive Cosmetic Plan for Your Smile

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells made of porcelain or composite resin that are bonded to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers are commonly used to dramatically improve smile aesthetics, especially with teeth that have substantial cosmetic concerns such as discoloration, stains, chips, cracks, gaps or misaligned, irregularly shaped or unevenly sized teeth.

Dental veneers are an excellent choice as they mimic the appearance of natural teeth because they are custom made to match the color, shape and size of surrounding teeth. Porcelain veneers possess a translucent quality that reflects light similarly to natural tooth enamel.

Durability is a major strength of dental veneers because they are made from materials such as porcelain that can withstand normal biting and chewing forces. With proper care and maintenance. dental veneers can last for many years, providing patients with a long term solution for smile enhancement.

The Pioneer Dental Vision for Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are custom-made to ensure a precise fit and natural appearance. The process of creating dental veneers typically involves the following steps:

  1. Consultation and treatment planning: During an initial consultation, your dentist will assess whether your dental needs and aspirations are a good fit for dental veneers.

  2. Tooth preparation: A small amount of enamel is usually removed from the front surface of the teeth to create space for the veneer.

  3. Impression-taking: An impression or mold of your teeth is taken that serves as a model from which our in-house dental lab can create your custom veneers.

  4. Shade selection: During the impression-taking process, you will also have an opportunity work with your dentist to choose the desired shade or color of your veneers.

  5. In-house lab fabrication: The impressions and other relevant information are sent to our in-house dental lab, where skilled technicians will create your custom veneers.

  6. Veneer placement and bonding: Once the custom veneers are ready, your dentist will test fit them and etch the surface of your teeth, following by applying a dental adhesive to make the bond.

Dental Veneers - Artistry At Work At Pioneer Dental

Pioneer Dental prides itself on its capabilities to custom make porcelain veneers in its in-house dental lab. Each veneer is made to address the specific cosmetic concern of the patient.

Pioneer Dental veneers are highly resistant to stains compared to natural tooth enamel. This means that veneers can maintain their color and brightness over time, even when exposed to staining agents like coffee, tea, or tobacco. This can be particularly advantageous for individuals with persistent tooth discoloration that is not effectively treated by teeth whitening methods.

Additionally, dental veneers require conservative tooth preparation. To place veneers, a minimal amount of enamel is typically removed from the front surface of the teeth, ensuring a precise fit and natural appearance. Compared to other cosmetic dental treatments like dental crowns, which require more significant tooth reduction, veneers are a more conservative option that preserves the maximum amount of healthy tooth structure

Our dentists are happy to talk about how dental veneers can be applied to enhancing your smile.
