Dazzling beautiful smile desired? With porcelain veneers, Golden Triangle Dentistry cosmetic dentists can help you achieve your ideal smile with natural looking teeth. What are porcelain veneers? They are particularly thin substances of porcelain which are permanently affixed to the front side one’s teeth and have a long lifespan. The added benefits of the procedure being uncomplicated and straightforward can help you achieve that dazzling smile in a fairly short timeframe.
Porcelain veneers can aesthetically correct a discolored tooth, mildly crooked teeth, slight gaps between teeth, and small chips in teeth. In order to be a possible candidate, your dental health is a primary concern. If tooth decay, gingivitis, or severely misaligned teeth are existent, these must be addressed first, then the smile transformation can be considered. Since porcelain veneers are generally considered cosmetic, most dental insurance plans do not cover this procedure.
According to Golden Triangle Dentistry cosmetic dentist Dr. Neff, “porcelain veneers provide natural looking, successful smile makeovers in a relatively simple and painless process.” What is the process of applying a porcelain veneer? Especially for a sensitive patient, a local anesthetic is first applied. This is recommended, but an optional procedure. Next, the tooth enamel is shaved off in very small amounts. Afterwards, an impression mold of your teeth is built up and sent to a laboratory where the veneer is custom-made to one’s individual mouth. Once the porcelain veneer is completed, the color, the fit, the shape and the shading, if mutually satisfactory, is bonded with professional cement to the tooth.
Dental care for your porcelain veneers requires the recommended brushing and regular oral checkups to keep them looking healthy and beautiful. The durability can last from 10 to 15 years and in some cases up to 30 years long. A wonderful characteristic is that they are very resistant to wine, coffee, and tea stains. However, since they are not as strong as natural teeth, they can be subject to chips or fractures or even become loose.
Consider porcelain veneers for a beautiful, dazzling smile makeover. “With the aesthetically pleasing benefits of whitening, brightening and straightening your smile, in a relatively pain free and quick manner, it is a rather simple decision,” commented Dr. Neff.
