Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. So, if you’re not happy with your smile, it can affect your self-confidence. But thanks to porcelain veneers, we can immediately transform your smile and improve your quality of life.
Achieve The Perfect Hollywood Smile
Have you ever noticed how most Hollywood stars have perfect, uniform, and white teeth? You may think they simply have superior genes, but that’s not exactly true. Thanks to advanced cosmetic dentistry, the perfect smile is more attainable than you might think. With porcelain veneers, we can transform the external appearance of your teeth and conceal all your cosmetic dental problems. Advanced Dentistry & Implant Center takes an artistic approach to veneers, helping you achieve a perfect smile that looks completely natural.
What are Veneers?
Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells of porcelain or resin bonded to the front of your teeth. Since dental veneers cover the front face of your teeth, they instantly conceal all of your cosmetic dental concerns. They can improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, chipped, worn down, misaligned, or have gaps between them. Dental veneers are usually made from porcelain because it more closely resembles the natural color of teeth. However, composite resin veneers are also available and are usually less expensive.
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Slightly misaligned teeth
- Extremely small teeth
The Porcelain Veneers Process
The first step is to schedule a consultation with your dentist. During the consultation, your dentist will examine your mouth and decide if veneers are the best option. If you decide to move forward with veneers, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth and send them to a dental laboratory to create your custom veneers. The dentist will also customize the treatment plan to ensure the optimal shape, size, and shade for a natural look.
Once your veneers are ready, you will return to the dentist’s office for a second appointment. The dentist will clean your teeth during this appointment and roughen up their surfaces. This is done so that the veneers will have something to bond to. Next, the dentist will place the veneers on your teeth and check to ensure they fit properly. Once the veneers are in place, the dentist will use a special light to harden the bonding agent.
You will likely have some sensitivity after getting dental veneers, but this should go away after a few days. It is also important to take care of your veneers by brushing and flossing regularly and avoiding hard or sticky foods. With proper care, veneers can last over a decade.
