Porcelain Veneers: A Beautiful Smile Transformation
For anyone considering smile enhancement, veneers are an excellent option. Porcelain veneers can fix issues such as, teeth spacing, coloration, and size. Veneers give dramatic results with minimal tooth reduction and are a great choice for those looking to restore their smile.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a permanent form of cosmetic treatment in which a porcelain laminate veneer is placed over a tooth. The veneer has been specifically shaped to aid in the correction of specific tooth issues. These veneers can address issues such as too much space between the teeth, tooth discoloration, and teeth that are too small or misaligned.
What is the application process of porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are placed on teeth in two visits, the first is a preparation visit, the second is the insertion visit. In the first visit, a small amount of tooth reduction is performed, approximately .5mm. For people who are very sensitive, a local anesthetic may be used, but it is often not necessary. The veneers are placed onto the teeth using a light sensitive resin that is hardened with a white light at your second visit.
Dramatically Beautiful Results
Porcelain veneers are quite strong and once in place they will stand up to most pressure applied to them in a normal diet. As with natural teeth, biting down on excessively hard objects or food, or using your teeth as tools can create issues, but with common sense the veneers once placed are very resilient.
Porcelain Veneers: A Great Choice for Smile Restoration
While veneers are not the only choice for all dental issues that involve tooth position, color, shape, or size, they are a remarkable restoration when they are the chosen treatment. Unlike crowns, veneers only require minimal tooth reduction so they are a more conservative choice when it comes to restoration. Speak with a qualified cosmetic dentist to learn more about if dental veneers are the right choice for you!
