Give yourself the beautiful smile that you deserve. If you are sick and tired of discoloration, crooked teeth or gaps ruining your smile’s full potential, we may have the answer for you: porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain coverings that are attached to your teeth to fix a host of cosmetic dental issues, such as:
- Masking unsightly surface stains
- Getting rid of gaps
- Fixing minor chips
- Improving the appearance of oddly shaped teeth
- Enhancing your smile’s appearance
Besides its cosmetic benefits, porcelain veneers are also ideal for replacing damaged or worn down enamel. For this reason, veneers offer cosmetic and restorative benefits for your teeth.
To ensure an optimal fit and look, the dentist will have to remove a small amount of the teeth's surface that will have the veneers placed on them. Impressions are made which will be used to create the porcelain shells. While your veneers are being made, sealants will be placed over your exposed teeth. Once the porcelain veneers are ready, the sealants are removed and the shells are attached. Once the shells have been attached to your teeth, they provide great strength, durability, and aesthetics for your smile.
The porcelain material is tough and natural looking since the material is tooth-colored. It is also stain-resistant so it helps to keep your teeth whiter for longer. To ensure your veneers last for a long time, be sure to brush, floss, and take care of your teeth.
