With most of the things we use in our everyday life, many people are involved in making the final product. One person makes the parts, another assembles them and yet another does the final quality check. You might be surprised to hear it, but dental work is no different! Although you primarily interact with your dentist, there are a lot of people “behind-the-scenes” that have a big impact on how your final result will look.
As a cosmetic dentist in State College, we’ve used porcelain veneers to give many of our patients the smile of their dreams. But where do we have our veneers made and do the materials used to make them matter? Keep reading to learn more!
Where Are Your Porcelain Veneers Made?
When we use veneers to do a smile makeover in State College, the entire procedure is done here in our office, but we don’t actually make the veneers ourselves.
Instead, we take impressions of your teeth and send them to our trusted dental lab. Once there, the lab custom-makes each veneer according to our exact specifications.
About 1-2 weeks later you return for the final step of the procedure, which is having your new veneers permanently adhered to your teeth.
We’re happy to say that we’ve established a strong working relationship with our local lab over the years. Since we’ve worked together for so long, they know exactly how to follow the treatment plan and instructions so that you get the result you want.
How Do the Materials Used Affect Your Results?
In addition to being closely involved in where and how your veneers are made, we also make sure that only the best materials are used. When the materials have been done well, your veneers will be strong, durable and beautiful for many years to come.
While there are multiple choices for materials, we insist on porcelain because it offers several advantages:
- It’s not only incredibly strong, but is also the thinnest option available, so it conserves the largest amount of your existing tooth structure.
- Porcelain veneers won’t pick up stain as easily from coffee, tea, berries or red wine, so they’ll continue to look great for longer.
- When choosing a material for your veneers, we want an option that will look as natural as possible. Porcelain reflects the light in a way that’s more like your own teeth, so no one will guess that you’ve had dental work done.
Once you’ve decided to invest in yourself with porcelain veneers in State College, it’s worth it to make sure it’s done right – every step of the way!
