Porcelain Veneers: A Dramatic Smile Enhancer
One of the most popular options in cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers can correct a number of aesthetic problems in the teeth that show when you smile. They’re ultra-thin coverings made of porcelain that are bonded securely to the front surface of teeth, instantly enhancing or restoring their size, shape and overall beauty.
Put simply, porcelain veneers offer a quick redo for teeth with many cosmetic flaws.
The following issues can be corrected with porcelain veneers:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Stained teeth that haven’t improved with teeth whitening
- MIshapen or misaligned teeth
- Slightly gapped teeth
- And many more cosmetic dental issues!
Patients with healthy teeth and gums who are interested in making big time smile improvements are typically candidates for the procedure.
Procedure for Porcelain Veneers
When you decide that porcelain veneers are the best choice for you and your smile, you can expect the procedure to be carried out over two appointments.
In the first visit, you’ll get the chance to thoroughly discuss your smile goals with your dentist. It can help to bring in photos of what you do and don’t want to achieve for this portion — after all, we know that not everyone desires a celebrity smile. Once your doctor has a clear idea of what it is you’re looking to achieve, your teeth will be prepared for the veneers and temporaries will be placed until your devices have been expertly crafted.
Once your permanent veneers are ready, you’ll come back to the office for the final placement. Your doctor will examine them to make sure they look, fit and feel just like you want — and you get the last word before they’re bonded on. Once the final step is complete, we’d like to say congratulations! You’re the proud new owner of your very best smile.
