If you have chips, discolorations or other teeth imperfections, porcelain veneers are a great solution to transform your smile. Made of hard, durable ceramic materials, veneers are ultra-thin coverings that are affixed to the front surfaces of the teeth, and your experienced dentist at AAdvanced Dental can perform the procedure in just two appointments at our Oregon City, OR office.
An important ingredient for having an impressive personality is to have a charming and beautiful smile. If you feel shy smiling in front of other people, just because you are afraid that you will expose your crooked and stained teeth while doing so, then you don’t have to worry anymore! At AAdvanced Dental in Oregon City, we will restore your teeth with the help of porcelain veneers and give you a smile that you have always dreamed of.
How are veneers placed?
- Patient Evaluation– not every patient may be a candidate for getting veneers. Dr. Shimanovsky will perform a detailed examination of your teeth, so as to make sure that you are a suitable candidate.
- Tooth Preparation– Dr. Shimanovsky will prepare your teeth for the placement of veneers. This is done by removing a very thin layer of the natural tooth structure, thereby creating space for the veneers. At this stage, the shade and color of the adjacent natural teeth will be recorded and sent to the laboratory.
- Impression Making– after the teeth have been prepared, an impression of the prepared teeth will be recorded, which will then be sent to the dental laboratory for the fabrication of veneers.
- Veneer Cementation– once the veneers are received back from the laboratory, they will be first fitted onto your teeth without permanently cementing them. If the aesthetics and fit are found to be satisfactory, Dr. Shimanovsky will permanently attach them to your teeth with the help of an adhesive cement. However, if any minor modifications are required before permanent cementation, they are usually made at the dental chairside.

Caring For Your Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are prosthetic appliances and need to be looked after same as your natural teeth if you want them to last for a long time. At AAdvanced Dental, Oregon City, OR we provide the following instructions to our patients regarding the care of their veneers.
- Take Care of Oral Hygiene – Veneers are immune to decay, however they are bonded to your existing teeth. Therefore you must still take good care of your teeth otherwise new decay may develop that could cause veneers to fail.
- Avoid biting into hard or sticky objects -- Veneers can break just like natural teeth, so biting hard objects, like unpopped popcorn kernels or cherry pits, can damage them. And biting into hard or sticky candy can dislodge them
- Visit your Dentist Regularly – at each dental visit, we will have a look at your veneers to see if they need any repairs or re-attachment.
