Your teeth might be in perfect health. They might have no cavities and function just as they should, but you just don’t like their appearance. Teeth, though healthy, might still be crooked, misaligned, have gaps, appear too big, or even too small. In these instances, cosmetic dentistry has just the fix! With porcelain veneers, you can achieve the perfect smile you’ve always wanted.
Indeed porcelain veneers address a wide variety of problems, including discoloration, minor chips, even alignment. With these thin facings of tooth-colored porcelain, we can completely makeover your smile.
Can I Get Porcelain Veneers?
Only a consultation with a dentist can determine if you are a good candidate for veneers. It’s important to understand that your teeth should be in good overall health before undergoing a cosmetic procedure. So, if we find any major problems like tooth decay, periodontal disease, or other issues, we’ll recommend addressing those first.
When you’re ready for veneers, we’ll discuss what goals you have for your smile and what specific changes you’re looking to achieve.
The Veneers Procedure
Porcelain veneers will typically take a couple of appointments. First, we remove a thin layer of your enamel to create room for the application. Then we take a mold, or impression, of your mouth.
We will have your veneers created by your next appointment, and they are then ready to be bonded into place. We typically place the veneers over the most visible teeth, the six frontmost teeth on the top.
Although it can be a big decision, few cosmetic options can provide such dramatic results. If you’re interested in porcelain veneers or other cosmetic dentistry options, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us for a consultation.
