Forget about other people looking at your smile for a moment, and instead, think about how many times you look at it in a day. Oral hygiene practices, beauty routines, and many other customs involve individuals staring at their reflection in the mirror. Folks primp and pamper themselves, in one way or another, to look and feel perfect about the image. Hair that becomes too shabby is merely cut and styled to improve self-confidence. Colored contacts offer wearers the ability, not only to see better, but they also provide a completely different look in a matter of seconds. However, the same can not be said for a blemished smile.
Of course, most patients know the importance of practicing proper brushing and flossing methods, but genetics, accidents, and numerous other elements can cause smiles to become less than stellar. Dental implants, bridges, and porcelain veneers are common remedies for the issues. Each technique offers its unique benefits, but the latter is versatile and can become utilized for single or multiple tooth applications. Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin, yet durable and unyielding, to withstand chewing various foods without breaking.
Our dentists pay meticulous attention to detail, which results in the shape, size, and color of porcelain veneers matching existing natural teeth. After all, patients do not want somewhat better-looking tooth surfaces, so our team goes above and beyond to give them the smile of their dreams. A layer of tooth enamel is removed from the affected tooth, which allows impressions to be made of the area. Once the porcelain veneers have been constructed, they become attached to the surface with a specialized adhesive. The bond is strong and provides a long-lasting, beautiful smile, which in many cases last the patient a lifetime.
Aside from eliminating chips and fixing minor gaps, porcelain veneers align the patient’s bite pattern. These actions allow you to eat what you want, whenever the need arises, pain-free and comfortable. They stay in place, and without having to remove an apparatus for cleaning. Just stick to, or improve, your regular oral hygiene routine. Floss and bristles will be able to get between teeth, and into crevices that were previously impossible to access. Not everyone is a candidate for porcelain veneers, but don’t fear because our team will work diligently to find the perfect cosmetic dentistry solution for your situation.
