Some of the intricate details that Dr. Lobato performs to design veneers include:
Dental diagnostic wax up with a dental laboratory.
A series of diagnostic photos showing design angles.
Diagnostic casts (molds) that are used for measurements and the evaluation of your occlusion (bite).
A custom shade appointment with our laboratory technician.
Placement or bonding with a complementary color of material for natural look.
The preliminary information allows Dr. Lobato to design veneers that are custom-made for your desired size, shape, and recommend look. A custom shade appointment with our laboratory technician allows the technician to see the shade of the tooth underneath the luminous veneers to be placed. When the veneer is ready to be bonded into place we can select bonding material shades that are complementary to the main shade of the veneer itself. This step is important because the veneer will transmit light, that we want to be certain to block any discoloration of the natural tooth underneath.
Dr. Robin Lobato and his staff are committed to assisting you with veneers as a treatment option that is right for you. In the appropriate situation veneers are ideal because they conserve your own natural tooth structure and are lifelike.
