Not everyone has perfect teeth, but most people desire dazzling pearly whites that look absolutely perfect with a smile. Porcelain veneers make this attractive smile possible for everyone. Ultra thin, porcelain shells can be bonded onto your teeth, to cover and improve the way your teeth look. The result is perfect, great looking teeth that create a major difference when you smile. If you want problem teeth solved, porcelain veneers are a great solution.
What Cosmetic Flaws Can Porcelain Veneers Address?
Porcelain veneers are often referred to as your most versatile cosmetic dentistry treatment because they address not just one, but many kinds of tooth imperfections.
- Chips and cracks on your teeth
- Teeth that are badly misshapen
- Misaligned or oddly spaced teeth
- Gaps or spaces between teeth
- Discolored teeth brought about by stains caused by smoking, coffee drinking, and old age among others.
- Worn down or aged teeth
What are the Steps Involved in Porcelain Veneer Bonding?
The process begins by discussing with your dentist your goals for the treatment. The dentist will then examine your teeth, perform routine procedures like teeth cleaning, take an x-ray of your teeth, and then plan your treatment. You will discuss with him the size and shape of veneers that you would want placed on your teeth. He will then present you with a treatment plan that will transform the look of your teeth.
At your next appointment, the dentist prepares your teeth for the veneers. This is done by removing a few millimeters of your tooth’s enamel. The amount of enamel removed is very minimal, just enough to give space for the thin veneers. Once your tooth is prepared, dental impressions will be taken so your veneers can be fabricated. This model of your teeth will be sent to a dental lab, to start fabricating your veneers.
You will wait 1 to 2 weeks for the crafting of your veneers. During this short wait, you will wear temporaries, so you can eat, smile, and speak naturally while waiting for your veneers to be crafted.
On your third and final visit, the doctor bonds your porcelain veneers into place. He will first see to the proper fit and positioning of the veneers, making adjustments to achieve perfection. Once he is satisfied with the fit, the dentist bonds the veneers permanently onto your prepared teeth. He polishes the newly bonded veneers and makes final touches. The result is a beautiful smile transformation that looks absolutely stunning.
What are the Benefits of Having Porcelain Veneers?
Making beautiful smiles happen is what porcelain veneers do. Porcelain veneers have the same translucence as real teeth; thereby, look very natural even if they’re artificial teeth. They’re even better than real teeth, because veneers can resist stains. Who says your days of drinking coffee are over just so you can maintain beautiful teeth? With porcelain veneers, you get to keep having beautiful, picture perfect teeth without having to sacrifice coffee or tea drinking and many other habits that you enjoy doing.
