Do you suffer from a lack of self-confidence when you smile? Are your teeth damaged by decay and wear? Perhaps your teeth overlap one another or are permanently stained by years of exposure to coffee. Fortunately, you can achieve a healthy-looking, gorgeous smile with porcelain veneers—a cosmetic procedure that addresses almost every imaginable smile imperfection.
How can porcelain veneers improve my smile?
For patients looking to substantially improve the aesthetics of their smiles, porcelain veneers are a popular and viable option. Producing a flawless, celebrity-worthy smile, veneers offer a complete smile makeover that conceals a variety of smile flaws including chipped, crooked, and damaged teeth along with yellowing and stains.
What are porcelain veneers?
Using high-grade porcelain which mimics the appearance of teeth by its color and ability to reflect light, veneers provide a complete smile transformation without looking unnatural or conspicuous. Individually crafted by trained dental technicians in a laboratory, each veneer is custom made just for you. The shape and size of veneers along with their shade of white is determined by carefully prepared specifications made by your cosmetic dentist.
With precision, our skilled dental team considers a variety of factors when designing the shape and size of your veneers such as the size of your teeth in relation to your gums, your face shape, and size of your mouth. After your veneers are crafted, they will be bonded to the front surface of your teeth with durable, tooth-colored cement. As these thin, shell-like pieces of porcelain are placed over your teeth, final adjustments will be made to ensure proper placement before the dental cement hardens. Patients will then leave our office wearing the smile of their dreams.
Like natural teeth, veneers are brushed and flossed regularly. Patients can still enjoy their favorite foods and most importantly, smile with confidence.
