Porcelain Veneers

Dentist Des Moines, Iowa

Porcelain veneers are beautiful coverings that are produced in a lab and then placed over chipped or broken teeth. These thin porcelain shells make the tooth look natural and blend in with the other teeth.

Veneers make the affected teeth the same size and shape that a natural tooth would be. Sometimes a patient might need one veneer, while another patient may need 24 veneers. And the results make for natural looking and beautiful smiles; our patients love their smiles after they have had veneers placed on their teeth.

The procedure of applying porcelain veneers involves preparing the teeth to make sure the veneer will fit perfectly in place. Since the veneers are as thin as fingernails, they have to be placed precisely so the tooth will look natural and fit with the rest of the teeth.

In order to do this, we take impressions and images of the affected teeth and send the information to a laboratory to have the veneers made. Once the lab sends them back, usually after a few days, we bond them onto the teeth. Patients are given temporary veneers to wear for the time being. In the second appointment, the veneers are placed onto the teeth using a special bonding agent, which holds the veneers in place. Once placed, the veneer covered teeth will look like the rest of your natural teeth.

Caring for your veneer covered teeth involves being careful in terms of not biting or chewing hard substances, which can chip or break the veneer. You can also brush your teeth as you would normally. Keeping them clean is important. While porcelain veneers are resistant to stains, they can still become discolored if not properly cleaned.

Porcelain veneers, as their name applies, are made of porcelain, which is a substance that the mouth accepts. It is also a material that matches with natural teeth. The shade can be changed to match the patient’s surrounding natural teeth and no one will be able to tell that you have had any work done.

Types Of Porcelain Veneers At Plaza Dental Group

There are two types of porcelain veneers offered at Plaza Dental Group in Des Moines: traditional porcelain veneers and no-prep veneers, often known as “Lumineers.” Both are used to correct problems such as chips, permanently stained or discolored teeth, misaligned teeth, or teeth that need to be changed in shape, size, length, or color.

Traditional porcelain veneers require some of a natural tooth’s structure to be removed in order to bond the veneer over the top. This means that some of the outside enamel is taken off to ensure the veneer can be bonded to the front of the tooth without looking over-sized. If you choose the traditional veneers you must take into consideration that this procedure is typically irreversible because of the enamel removal.

No-prep veneers, such as “Lumineers,” are a type of porcelain veneer that is made even thinner than standard veneers. They are created this way in order to require little, if any, removal of the tooth’s structure to bond into place and cover the natural tooth. These are thin and have less “bulk” than traditional porcelain veneers, allowing them to go over the top of the teeth without requiring lengthy preparation that involves shots and drilling to shave down the natural teeth. Lumineers are reversible because the natural tooth has not been altered.

When you call Plaza Dental Group in Des Moines, Iowa and schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Mohan, you will be able to find out which type of porcelain veneer is best for your situation, budget, and smile. Together with your dentist, you can make a decision on an investment in yourself and your appearance!

I moved to Iowa at the end Of February, and have been looking for a dentist that cared about their patients. When I found Plaza Dental Group, they were able to get me right in, and my experience from the when I walked in to the office, to the time I walked out after my first visit was beyond what I could have hoped for. Dr.Odland and his staff are incredible and made me feel comfortable from start to finish. They explained the next steps regarding my next appointments, and everything that was going to take place. I feel at ease knowing that I am being taken care of. All of my appointments have been great. The front staff is great as well! I can not say enough great things about this office!read more

This place is the BEST. I cannot say enough about how great Lacey is and the job she does! I was so impressed by Plaza Dental Group compared to previous dentists I've visited that I won't be going anywhere else. Highly recommend Lacey, Dr. Odland, and Dr. Dietrich - they are highly educated and knowledgeable, very thorough with their care and listening to your needs, inform/explain things every step of the way, and are so enjoyable and fun to be around. Wish I could give more than 5 stars!read more

I just switched to Plaza because it’s closer to my work/home and I’d give them 100 stars if I could! My hygienist Talia had amazing attention to detail (and I’m known to be very particular) and Dr. Odland’s chairside manner was amazing. I don’t know why I didn’t come here sooner!
