Most individuals don't realize how different porcelain veneers and conventional crowns are, and believe they are the same. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are custom-made to fit the patient's mouth and are very thin. In a minimally invasive way, veneers are a great tool for rebuilding and resurfacing teeth, and we utilize them extensively. Veneers require adhesive bonding to chemically attach or "glue" them to the underlying tooth structure and prevent them from shifting. The preservation of as much natural tooth structure as possible, particularly enamel, allows for the creation of the greatest possible bond surface for extremely thin veneers.

Having their teeth "carved down" is a common source of anxiety for many patients, who are astonished to hear that porcelain veneers are fundamentally different from conventional crowns.

For the most predictable outcomes, veneers operate best when the maximum amount of natural tooth structure is kept. This is because veneers must be bonded to enamel to be effective. Traditional crowns need the removal of more tooth structure to be strong, and they are kept in place by friction produced by dental cement rather than bonding.

Porcelain veneers may help you get the look you've always wanted. When it comes to resurfacing, creating, and remodeling smiles, one of the most effective tools we have is porcelain veneers. Ceramic veneers may be an ideal alternative for you if you have defects in your smile such as chipped or cracked teeth, gaps between teeth, or aging dentistry. They may help you recapture a smile you've lost or finally experience what it's like to love your smile.

Answers to the Most Frequently Asked Questions regarding Veneers

Q: Will my porcelain veneers appear to be the same color as my natural teeth?

A: If you get them designed by Summerlin Dental Solutions, then absolutely yes! Creating a beautiful smile is what Dr. Cohan does with the final result in mind. She pays attention to what you want to modify or enhance and then incorporates her skills to produce a one-of-a-kind smile for each and every patient with whom she works. She makes wearable pieces of art that are inspired by her facial design method, which you may enjoy every day. Patients frequently tell us at Summerlin Dental Solutions that it truly does change their life. They feel happier because they are actually smiling more. Their self-confidence soars with their newfound comfort level socially.

In most cases, it is so easy to distinguish between mediocre dentistry and the work of an artist who can replicate the natural form and contour found in actual teeth. However, we recognize that everyone adds a unique personality to our practice, so if you are outgoing and want the world to know you have had your smile improved, we can also develop one that is tailored to your specific needs and personality. Always a unique piece of art, each case is designed to meet your specific smiling objectives. We are proud to be able to do that for all our patients!

Q: How long do you think my veneers will last?

A: When planned and created properly, porcelain veneers have the same strength as real teeth. As a result, they are highly durable! You should expect a decent service life of 10 to 20 years if you provide good home care and get regular check-ups to keep your health in peak condition. Because your natural teeth are still prone to decay, it is vital to practice great oral hygiene at home, including regular brushing and flossing. Dr. Cohan will examine each tooth during your maintenance visits, and they will be able to monitor your health between sessions.

We can monitor and identify changes like tooth movement, wear from grinding, tooth surface damage, and other changes that may occur between visits thanks to our ultra-modern digital equipment. This enables possible concerns to be discovered immediately and brought to your attention before they have a chance to worsen or spread. Our Summerlin Dental office sees many local patients who return to see Dr. Cohan at least once a year so that she can assess the health of their cosmetic investment in our Summerlin Dental office.

Q: Is it painful or uncomfortable to have veneers placed?

A: The procedure of customizing your smile for veneers should be as painless as possible. It is common for teeth to require just a small amount of dental structure removed; in rare situations, the procedure can even be performed without the use of anesthesia. Aside from providing spa-like facilities such as noise-canceling BOSE headphones, soft blankets, memory foam pillows, and massage chairs, our Summerlin Dental office also strives to create a quiet and soothing environment for our clients.

Dr. Cohan creates each smile from scratch, making each one a one-of-a-kind work of art. Dr. Cohan has earned the trust of her patients due to her many years of experience in producing amazing outcomes for some of the most difficult patients.
