We offer porcelain veneers, which most people associate with cosmetic dentistry. Porcelain veneers are a permanent cosmetic dentistry solution for patients wanting to aesthetically enhance their smiles. A porcelain veneer is a thin, semi-translucent laminate that Dr. Rogge designs specifically for your goals. These veneers are then bonded permanently to your teeth. Porcelain veneers are the most aesthetic alternative for a variety of dental conditions, including: gaps or spaces between the front teeth, broken teeth, permanently stained or discolored teeth, cracked teeth. Generally, when someone thinks of cosmetic dentistry, they usually have porcelain veneers in mind.
Many restorations are fabricated using a metal lining covered with porcelain. These types of restorations are not natural in appearance because they are opaque or flat looking as they do not let light pass through, like a natural tooth does. There is often a dark or gray line next to the gum-line. We provide exclusively all porcelain-bonded restorations. With our restorations you will notice the appearance of natural teeth again. Metal-free dentistry can restore your full dentition back to natural form and beauty.
On a first appointment, we prepare your teeth for the porcelain veneers and an impression is taken. This dental impression is sent to a dental lab where each porcelain veneer is custom made to our specifications. On the first visit, we create attractive temporaries for you to simulate your new smile. You can expect to leave the first appointment with a beautiful new smile! At the second appointment, we permanently adhere your porcelain veneers to your natural teeth. Adjustments may be required as you get used to your new teeth, but normally these are minor, easy adjustments made in minutes.
