We are always seeking to provide the best possible cosmetic solutions for our patients because we know what it’s like to not enjoy your own smile. It’s terrible to have to second-guess every smile and every snap of a camera in your direction.
The good news is that you don’t have to live that way. With our help, you can have the smile of your dreams in a matter of a couple of dental appointments!
Let’s take a closer look at veneers and see if they are right for your smile!
What Are Veneers?
Dental Veneers have been around for a long time. They are thin strips of porcelain that are shaped to fit your teeth perfectly. Whether you want to restore one tooth or all of your teeth, porcelain veneers can take care of it!
Veneers are more popular than you might think, by the way. You know your favorite Hollywood star’s perfect smile? Nine times out of ten, it had a little bit of help from veneers!
Which Problems can be Solved?
Veneers can take care of a number of problems! Basically any situation that is affecting the color or shape of your smile can be fixed with veneers. Below are a few examples:
Chipped or cracked tooth: As long as the tooth is still functional (meaning that we don’t need to cover it with a crown to prevent infection), we can cover it with a veneer to regain the natural shape of your tooth.
Short or Misshapen teeth: Some teeth are short and stubby or a weird shape that doesn’t flow with the rest of the smile. We can correct that with veneers!
Severe Discoloration: If your teeth are terribly discolored, we can cover the damage with veneers. The veneers will transform your smile into something completely stunning!
What is the Procedure Like?
Have you considered cosmetic dentistry but been afraid of the procedures? Veneers make it really easy to get the look you want without spending hours upon hours in the chair! The veneer procedure spans over two appointments that are a few weeks apart.
At the first appointment, we will prepare your teeth for the veneers by removing some of the enamel from the fronts of your teeth (or tooth). We will take impressions of the prepared tooth and place temporary veneers for you to wear while your impressions are being turned into porcelain veneers.
In a few weeks, we will call you back in for your veneer placement. We will remove the temporaries and bond your permanent veneers into place. We will trim any excess from the edges and ensure that your veneers fit exactly as they should!
How Long Will My Veneers Last?
Once the procedure is complete, you are looking at many years of enjoying your smile! Accidents happen, just like they do with natural teeth, but your veneers are sturdy and secure. With good oral hygiene, we would expect your veneers to last 15-20 years or more!
You might need one replaced due to an accident, but otherwise, you should be set to enjoy those restorations for a long time to come!
