Are you tired of feeling blue because of imperfections with your smile? It’s not uncommon for flaws in the teeth to cause embarrassment. Noticeable flaws may even make it difficult to smile proudly. But insecurities about your teeth don’t have to keep you frowning. Cosmetic dentistry can help improve your smile’s appearance, and porcelain veneers are one of the most popular forms of cosmetic treatment for good reason. Veneers can address a number of cosmetic problems, quickly, allowing you to smile proudly at last.
What Veneers Can Do For You
Veneers can help to improve smiles in a number of ways. For instance, they can be used to cover minor cracks, discoloration or staining, jagged edges, and abnormally small or misshapen teeth. They can even be used to cover minor gaps between teeth, helping to create a more well-aligned looking smile.
And, because veneers are made of durable porcelain, they also create long-lasting smile enhancement. In fact, porcelain is the same material used to create many modern dental crowns, because of its longevity and adaptability. Porcelain can be carefully crafted to match your natural teeth in size, shape and even the contouring, helping to create seamless restoration, in the case of dental crowns, or enhancement in the case of veneers. Porcelain is also stain-resistant, much like your teeth’s natural enamel, which is why veneers can last more than a decade with proper preventive care.
After an initial consultation, the cosmetic dentist can gently prepare your teeth to be fitted with veneers. Then, thanks to modern technology, your veneers can often be completed in a single office visit. E4D technology allows the dentist to measure your teeth using digital equipment, which then helps to create custom veneers on-site. Once your custom veneers have been milled, the dentist will carefully affix them to your teeth, as needed. In many cases, a few veneers are all that is needed to greatly improve a smile!
