The Complete Smile Makeover
In just one procedure – two visits – you could enjoy a total smile transformation. Porcelain veneers are a lab-made restoration, custom crafted from a thin layer of porcelain. Veneers cover the entire front surface of teeth, concealing imperfections while adding strength. Unlike a crown, veneers require minimal tooth preparation. Unlike bonding, veneers are durable and can endure for years.
Designing a Smile Makeover
Dr. Sohl completed his mastership with the Larry Rosenthal Esthetic Advantage. He uses advanced technology and expertise to design custom veneers that truly look natural, and also convey the personality a patient wants to project. For example, veneers for an executive whose smile needs to convey power would need a different design than those of a therapist who wants to look gentle and inviting. Dr. Sohl’s consultation with you will help him understand your goals so that he can design the perfect smile for your personality and lifestyle.
Fabricating and Placing Veneers
Before your veneers are fabricated, Dr. Sohl will create a 3-D blueprint of the expected final result. In some cases, he may recommend laser gum contouring to achieve optimal esthetics.
The next step is preparing teeth for temporary veneers. Dr. Sohl will place, then adjust your temporary veneers until he achieves a perfect fit. The temporary restorations will stay in place so that you can test drive your new smile. If you feel that modifications are needed, Dr. Sohl will alter the temporaries and make parallel adjustments to the design plans for your final veneers.
Your permanent restorations will be handcrafted to Dr. Sohl’s exact specifications. A dental ceramist in our highly acclaimed lab will build your veneers using light-reflecting porcelain that looks like beautiful, natural tooth enamel. The final step will be the application of the permanent veneers. Your new smile will last for years, and you’ll enjoy renewed self-confidence knowing that you look fabulous!
