A Total Smile Makeover with Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that can change the shape, size, length, and complete appearance of one or more teeth. Each veneer is designed to mimic a specific healthy tooth, and is securely bonded to the tooth’s front surface. Porcelain veneers are durable enough to withstand your bite’s pressure for up to 15 years or more, and are stain resistant to prolong your smile’s youthful, vibrant confidence.
What Veneers Could Do for Your Smile
Porcelain veneers are often referred to as an “instant smile makeover” because they can address a variety of cosmetic issues at the same time. When other cosmetic treatments can only address one of your smile’s concerns, veneers can offer a solution that dramatically improves your entire smile. With a single procedure, Dr. Patel can help you improve:
- Severe teeth stains (when teeth-whitening or tooth bonding are not sufficient)
- Slight tooth misalignment (in minor cases, veneers can help you avoid braces)
- Tooth damage, such as cracks, fractures, and mild to moderate breaks
- Excessively-worn tooth surfaces that can throw your bite off-balance
- One or several noticeable gaps between teeth.
To place your veneers, your dentist will first prepare your teeth by sculpting a small amount of enamel from their front surfaces (less than 0.5mm, or about the width of the ultra-thin veneers). Then, he will take precise digital measurements of your teeth, which will be used to expertly craft your custom porcelain veneers. Once the veneers are bonded in place, you can once again take joy in smiling, especially knowing that you’ve retained most of your remaining healthy tooth structure.
