Lumineers, Empress Veneers and Elite Veneers

In dentistry, a veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth, modify the shade, size and anatomy or to protect a damaged or weak tooth surface before it breaks. The main type of material used to fabricate a veneer, is porcelain. The beauty result of a porcelain veneer can only be created by a detailed and non invasive tooth preparation by a Cosmetic Dentist.

Here at MHD * Before the teeth preparation for porcelain veneers is set, a mock up in wax is created for the patient in order to visualize the size, shape,shade and contour of the veneers. Then at the preparation appointment a Face Bow registration with a bite registration is taken in order to determine the exact relation of tooth size with respect to the jaw of the patient. A series of intraoral and extraoral digital image photography is recorded and transfer to our Smile Analysis chart.. Drs. Celis have received extensive training in Cosmetic and Aesthetic Dentistry.
