The holidays are the best times of the year where you get to create wonderful memories with your friends and family. But are you dreading all the socializing and photos because you’re embarrassed about your smile? You can benefit from porcelain veneers! In just two appointments, our cosmetic dentist can give you a picture-perfect smile and a boost in your confidence—just in time for the holiday season.
Understanding Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain material that are bonded to the front portion of your teeth. But unlike your natural teeth, which may be gapped, crooked, worn down, chipped, or uneven, porcelain veneers are hand-crafted to be the ideal tooth size, color, and shape for your smile. Like a new facade covers an older, less attractive building, so do porcelain veneers hide your tooth imperfections to instead reveal a straight, white smile!
The Veneers Treatment Process
Most of the time, the veneers treatment process takes two appointments that span the course of a few weeks. Once we have determined that you are in good oral health and veneers are right for you, we’ll prepare each tooth by removing a portion of enamel. This ensures a precise fit of your veneers, so they look natural. Next, we’ll take impressions of your teeth that a skilled ceramist will use to handcraft each veneer.
We may also provide wax try-ins so you can “test drive” your smile before we finalize any designs. Once your final veneers have been created, you’ll return to our office to have them securely bonded to your teeth. In just two simple appointments, you can have your smile transformed into one of natural beauty and function!
Choose a Skilled, Artistic Dentist
The porcelain veneers process requires a high level of detail and artistry. Many dentists who offer this treatment aren’t skilled enough to offer a natural-looking result. Experienced cosmetic dentists and ceramists design must your veneers to not only be the proper size for each tooth but provide a symmetrical smile and are colored to a natural shade for your skin tone.
