da Vinci Veneers™ are ultra-thin shells of ceramic material that are bonded to the front of your teeth. This procedure requires little or no anesthesia and can be the ideal choice for improving the appearance of your smile. da Vinci Veneers are placed to mask discolorations, brighten your teeth, and to improve your smile. da Vinci Veneers are highly resistant to permanent staining from coffee, tea, or even cigarette smoking. The wafer-thin da Vinci Veneer can achieve a tenacious bond to the tooth, resulting in an aesthetically pleasing naturalness that is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
In most cases, only two appointments are needed for the entire procedure, which includes: diagnosis and treatment planning, preparation, and bonding.
da Vinci Dental Studios has been the leader in the cosmetic dental veneer industry since 1976. da Vinci introduced the first porcelain veneer on the West Coast. Helping to change the perception of dentistry with its involvement on national primetime television makeover shows: the Swan and Extreme Makeover; da Vinci continues to remain on the forefront of the cosmetic dental veneer industry. With da Vinci veneers, they don’t just help change a smile, they help change lives.
Diagnosis and treatment planning: It's critical that you take an active role in the smile design process. Spend time in the decision-making and planning of your smile. Ask questions and understand the corrective limitations of the procedure.
Preparation of teeth: This appointment will take from one to two hours. To prepare the teeth for your da Vinci Veneers™, your teeth are lightly buffed to allow proper room for the minimal added thickness of the veneers. Usually, about a half a millimeter of the tooth is removed, which may sometimes require a local anesthetic. At this appointment, a mold is taken of the teeth. The mold is then sent to a da Vinci certified dental lab for the fabrication of the veneers. It usually takes no longer than two weeks for your new smile to be created by da Vinci's certified dental lab. In most cases Dr. Elyassi will fit you with a temporary smile during the fabrication of your new da Vinci Veneers.
Bonding of your da Vinci Veneers: This appointment will take about one to two hours. First, Dr. Elyassi places the veneers, with the use of water or glycerin, on the teeth to check their fit and get a true sense of their shade and color. While the veneers are resting on your teeth, make sure you view the aesthetic results and pay particular attention to the color. At this point, the color of the da Vinci Veneers can still be adjusted with the shade of the cement to be used.
The color cannot be altered after veneers are cemented. To apply your da Vinci Veneers, your teeth are cleaned with specific dental cleansers to achieve a firm and permanent bond. Then special cements are sandwiched between the veneer and tooth. A visible light beam initiates the release of a catalyst to harden the cement and your new smile is in place.
Today a great smile is the accepted norm. The shape, color and quality
of your smile can create the perception of youth, health and confidence.
A great smile can positively influence your professional career and even
your personal relationships. When you look in the mirror, do you like what
you see? If not, you can enhance your smile in as little as two appointments
with a Dr. Elyassi.
