A stained, chipped or misshapen smile can harm your personal confidence and professional image tremendously. Anyone with severely damaged teeth is familiar with the self-consciousness that can prevent you from reaching your full potential, making it more difficult to live the life you really want. That damage can, however, be reversed! Porcelain dental veneers are an excellent way to improve the look and feel of stained, chipped, or uneven teeth. Cosmetic dentistry has finally offered a way to provide patients with the unwavering confidence that comes with a bright, straight, and natural looking smile, with the help of beautiful, glass-like porcelain veneers.
Why Should I Get Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers provide patients with the uniform, bright, and beautiful teeth they need to smile confidently as they take the world by storm. Veneers are capable of correcting a wide range of cosmetic dental problems; crooked or misshapen teeth can be restored to an attractive and uniform shape with the help of a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure, while the same porcelain veneers can help severely discolored or stained teeth be made bright and white again. Teeth that are too small or too large can be shaped to size, worn or chipped teeth can be brought back to their former glory, even missing teeth or unwanted spaces can be filled with beautiful porcelain veneers!
What Happens During the Procedure?
The process of getting veneers is fairly simple. The procedure can be completed in just two visits, generally with little or no help from anesthesia of any kind.
First, the teeth need to be prepared. Teeth will be lightly buffed and shaped to allow room for the thickness of the veneers themselves, and a mold or impression of the teeth will then be taken. Next, your cosmetic dentistry professional will work with you to choose a color or shade for your veneers that looks great on your new smile.
On your second visit, the natural teeth will be cleansed with a series of special liquids and cleansers that allow the veneers to achieve a strong, durable bond with your existing prepared teeth. Bonding cement will then be placed between your natural tooth and the new veneer. A specialized beam of light will finally be directed at the bonding cement to harden it and set the veneers permanently onto the surface of your teeth.
The result will be a beautiful, bright smile that brings you lasting confidence!
