How Porcelain Veneers Provide Simple Smile Transformation
It’s possible to completely change your smile! How to do it and the time involved are common questions asked about cosmetic dentistry.
Cosmetic dental procedures provide you a variety of solutions for transforming the health and appearance of your smile. Among your choices are porcelain veneers. The treatment is a fast and effective choice if you’re wanting to make immediate, noticeable changes to your teeth.
Why porcelain dental veneers are superior
Your confidence takes a “hit” when you have teeth that are stained, discolored, uneven, or gapped. Teeth that are chipped or gapped can cause you to avoid smiling. Worse, tooth damage is risky for your teeth, gums, and general dental health.
Dental veneers enhance your smile. And their additional benefits can improve the health of your damaged teeth.
Each veneer is custom-made from porcelain. An individual dental veneer is thin, and wafer-like for easy bonding to the surface of your tooth.
How porcelain veneers are applied to your teeth
The veneer covers the front (smile-zone) portion of your tooth. They are a natural-looking solution for covering certain tooth imperfections.
Your cosmetic dental procedure with veneers is…
- Non-invasive and requires minimal tooth preparation
- Time saving depending on your tooth imperfections
- Completed in two appointments
At your first appointment your teeth are prepped and shaped. This step helps assure that your veneers will form a lasting bond on your treated teeth. Next, a mold (impression) of your teeth is taken to assure a proper and natural-looking fit.
Your veneers will be applied (bonded) to each tooth at your second appointment.
The best part…
You’ll leave with a noticeably whiter and attractive smile.
