Your smile may seem like it only comprises a small part of your appearance. While this is true, the impact can be far reaching. Your smile has the ability to make a good impression, set the tone for a meeting, and even put a smile on others’ faces. In fact, research has shown that people with pleasant smiles are often more remembered than others. Your smile can also give you confidence and self-esteem. If you feel proud of your smile, you are more likely to show it and engage with others in personal and professional settings.
In today’s society, image is valued. If you have cosmetic issues with the teeth, it is a good idea to have them evaluated. Teeth that are stained, cracked, crooked, or unevenly spaced can really affect the way the smile looks. Luckily, an accessible and versatile procedure can address a wide range of cosmetic imperfections and improve the appearance of your smile: porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are widely revered as the most multipurpose cosmetic dental treatment available. The reason is that they are able to hide a number of problems with the teeth. They are also highly customizable, which means that you can help craft the smile of your dreams.
So what are porcelain veneers?
They are thin, wafer-like shells of cermic porcelain that are bonded permanently to the front of the teeth. They can be created in any shape and color to enhance the smile and fit proportionately. Veneers can be used for one tooth or to completely makeover the smile. The possibilities are nearly endless!
The process for porcelain veneers involves two separate appointments. During the initial visit, we will examine the teeth, discuss your concerns, and make decisions about the type of veneers you want for your ideal smile. The teeth are then prepared for the veneers. This can be done with local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort. The next step is impressions, which are taken and then sent to the laboratory for fabrication.
The second appointment is for the placement of the veneers. We will first temporarily place the veneers to confirm size, shape, and color. Once they are satisfactory to both patient and doctor, they can be permanently bonded to the teeth.
