DaVinciTM Porcelain Veneers - Getting a Hollywood Smile
Today, a wonderful, pearly-white smile is important for a wide variety of reasons. Beautiful teeth can boost self-confidence, and a stunning smile is often the most recognized feature of a person. DaVinci™ dental veneers have been renowned for excellence in natural appearance and durability in the field of cosmetic dentistry for the past 25 years. Featured on the TV Show Extreme Makeover, these are the veneers used to make real Hollywood smiles. DaVinci porcelain veneers can cover even the most unsightly blemishes on the teeth, and treatment can be completed in two visits two-three weeks apart.

Who is a good candidate for DaVinci™ porcelain veneers?
DaVinci™ porcelain veneers are ideal for the patient looking for the most natural yet stunning smile. They’re also highly resistant to staining agents like tobacco, coffee, and red wine. DaVinci™ veneers look completely natural, feel fantastic, and can instantly cover the most severe cosmetic defects.
DaVinci™ veneers are wafer-thin, which means that eating, speaking, and biting functions are seldom affected by their placement. DaVinci™ veneers are created to match your current tooth color, which is why most patients do laser whitening first and then match the veneers to their new, whiter smile. However, veneers can only be applied to healthy underlying teeth and gums. If you have tooth decay or gum disease, these issues need to be addressed before the placement of dental veneers.
Patients often ask "how many dental veneers do I need to get?" If you are only doing veneers on the top teeth (which is typically the minimum starting point), look in the mirror and smile. The upper teeth that show will all need to have veneers so that they look natural - usually 6-8 teeth.
Here are some of the main advantages associated with DaVinci™ veneers:
High resistance to staining agents.
Incredibly strong bond that actually strengthens the underlying tooth.
Highest quality - the original Hollywood smile still used to create the smiles of your favorite stars.
Quick, natural looking results.
Transforms even the most disfiguring defects.
Unsurpassed matching with your other teeth.
What is the procedure for placing DaVinci™ veneers?
Dr. Swift or Dr. Myers will plan on three visits, though treatment is completed in two. The first visit involves a thorough investigation of the teeth and the planning of forthcoming treatments. The planning stage is an ideal opportunity to ask questions. Objectives and potential end results will be discussed, and the doctor will ensure that teeth are healthy enough for dental veneer placement.
The second visit may last several hours, depending upon the number of porcelain veneers being placed. The teeth need to be prepared before the DaVinci™ veneers are placed. Preparation generally involves light buffing of the teeth to create space equal to the thickness of the veneer for veneer placement. Since DaVinci™ veneers are wafer-thin, little of the tooth needs to be altered.
When the teeth are fully prepared, impressions are created. We are one of the few offices to utilize laser digital 3-D scanning, rather than putting "goop" in your mouth to produce molds. These digital impressions and photographs of your current teeth are then sent to the DaVinci™ laboratory. It generally takes around two weeks for the custom-made DaVinci™ veneers to be fabricated and shipped. In the meantime, a temporary veneer is fabricated by us and is placed to ensure the teeth look pleasant and are fully functional.
During the final visit, the DaVinci™ veneers are permanently bonded to the teeth, and your new smile is complete. Regular visits for checkups and cleanings are recommended with veneers to preserve their appearance.
DaVinci™ veneers produce a stunning result that transforms the smile into a smile that is contagious!
