How Porcelain Veneers Could Be the Perfect Treatment for Your Imperfect Teeth
Perhaps you’re unafraid to try new things. Often the choice is less about fear and more about what you desperately want to change. Porcelain veneers (in some ways) are to your smile what a makeover is to your wardrobe. The cosmetic dentistry treatment is an outstanding way to perfect your imperfect teeth.
Your tooth imperfections can vary. Discolored or stained teeth are among the common reasons to consider porcelain veneers.
Surface appeal and more
The appearance of your teeth can cause you to feel confident or self-conscious. Veneers boost your confidence but there’s more to them than what you see.
Tooth damage causes you to hide your smile. It also increases your risk for other oral health issues.
Chipped teeth, gaps between your teeth, and discoloring build-up on the surface of your teeth can impact the health of your teeth and gums.
Porcelain veneers bond to the surface of your teeth. The thin porcelain shell is durable and creates a natural looking cover for your tooth imperfections.
Veneers resist stains and remain strong on the surface of your teeth for many years. The treatment is not invasive and doesn’t require a significant amount of preparation.
Speaking of treatment preparation…
The time involved in your procedure will depend on your tooth imperfections. Your initial dental examination will provide the necessary information about your teeth and how veneers can help you accomplish your health and appearance goals.
During your appointment we prep the surfaces of your teeth that are being treated. If necessary, each tooth surface will be individually shaped.
The shaping process helps remove small, uneven portions of tooth enamel. This preparation allows you to receive the best results when each veneer is bonded to your teeth.
We will take an impression (mold) of your teeth. Your mold will be sent to our chosen dental laboratory where your porcelain veneers are custom-made.
Your new set of porcelain veneers will be available in approximately one week. Adjustments will be made for proper fit and your veneers will be attached (bonded) to each tooth with a curing light.
