Most people who visit a dentist will improve their smile. Cosmetic dentistry is a growing field, and more and more people are interested in looking good and making their smiles more aesthetic.
A dental veneer is an ultra-thin shell of tooth-colored porcelain or composite that is cemented over the facial surfaces of your teeth to correct dental issues including worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment or spacing, tooth discoloration, and chips or cracks.
There are several procedures that can help in this regard, and porcelain veneers seem to be one of the most popular. Porcelain veneers are a type of treatment that can correct a number of things, including:
- Misaligned teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Yellow teeth
- Chipped teeth
During your consultation, you will actively participate in the smile design process. By sharing your preferences for the shape, length, width and color of the veneers and the change in the appearance of your smile that you want them to create, you help ensure that your treatment will meet your expectations. It is important that we understands your objectives during your veneer consultation.
The dental veneer procedure can often be completed in two visits over the course of six weeks. The visits are comprehensive and may require several hours of examination and tooth preparation.
The diagnostic and examination phase of the treatment is essential and identifies any oral health problems that need to be addressed before the veneer is placed. We will also work with you to select the best tooth color for you in a special color chart. Imaging technologies can provide you with a preview of the expected results, and the before and after images can allow you to see other successful cases. The treatment begins when the exam is completed and the personalized plan is designed.
