Porcelain veneers can really transform your smile! They are very durable and look great – just like natural teeth, only better. Our patients love the way veneers improve their appearance. Porcelain veneers do not require a lot of preparation, and they can be placed in just two or three visits to the dentist. If you’re looking for a smile makeover, porcelain veneers may be just the solution you’re looking for.
What Makes Porcelain Veneers Special?
Porcelain is a very strong, translucent material that closely resembles the appearance of your natural tooth enamel. Veneers look so natural, in fact, that people won’t notice you’ve had any work done – they will just notice your beautiful smile! Since veneers have a very smooth, glass-like finish, they are also resistant to staining and attracting bacteria that can harm your teeth.
What Problems Can Porcelain Veneers Fix?
One of the great things about porcelain veneers is that they are so versatile. They are an excellent choice for correcting cosmetic dental flaws. Veneers look completely natural and can fix a number of problems, including:
- Changing the shape of uneven teeth
- Covering chips and cracks in teeth
- Concealing gaps between your teeth
- Correcting the appearance of slightly misaligned teeth
How Are Porcelain Veneers Applied?
Before we proceed with any treatment, it’s important for you to have a dental exam. We need to make sure your teeth are healthy so we can decide if porcelain veneers are the best choice for you. We will discuss your expectations so that we can make sure that you get exactly the results you desire.
Once we decide that porcelain veneers are right for you, we start by removing a very small bit of tooth enamel so the veneers will fit your teeth perfectly. Then we take x-rays and impressions and help you choose the right shade for your finished veneers. The impressions are sent to a dental lab where your veneers are custom made according to our exact specifications.
When your veneers are finished, you can return to our office and we will bond the veneers securely to the front surface of your teeth. Once they are in place, we polish and shape them to perfection. With regular dental visits and proper care, your veneers will keep your smile beautiful for many years.
