Are you 100% satisfied with the appearance of your smile? If the answer is no, there are interventions available in cosmetic dentistry -- and porcelain veneers are one of the best ways to transform imperfect teeth in the smile zone. These are the six teeth that show when you speak and grin, and they’re the ones that can make or break your entire look. Keep reading to learn how veneers work and whether or not they’re right for you from the team at Dental Dental Center.
Veneers are thin restorations that can be placed onto the front side of the teeth that show when you smile. These coverings are customized to match the size, shape, color, and overall appearance that will suit your unique facial structure best. Veneers are made out of porcelain, which looks and feels just like the tooth enamel you were born with -- for the most natural-looking beauty possible. Unlike tooth enamel, though, porcelain is non-porous, which means it will not absorb the colors of what you eat and drink. That keeps a smile transformed with veneers dazzling white for years and years to come.
Porcelain veneers are completed over the course of two visits to our office. In the first one, we will do the prep work -- including removing a small portion of tooth enamel from each tooth and placing a temporary veneer to cover it up. Using molds we take of your teeth and details from your treatment plan, our partner lab will create your new veneers specifically for your smile. Once they are sent back to our office, you return to have them securely bonded onto each tooth. And we know you will love the result!
With proper care and maintenance, veneers can last for up to 20 years before they will need to be replaced due to natural changes that occur with age. To take excellent care of your veneers, make sure you:
Many adults who have healthy but cosmetically imperfect front teeth are eligible for transformation with veneers. The only way to know for sure is to schedule a cosmetic consultation with our office. Even if veneers aren’t quite right for your smile, we can help you to identify the perfect solution with other cosmetic or restorative options.
