While not everyone is born with a perfect smile, the number is actually much larger than you’d think. In fact, just about every person on TV and in the movies has used veneers to enhance their smile to make it red-carpet ready. The difference is you don’t need to be a movie star or model to have the smile of one. Get in touch with our dentists at Legacy Dentistry to learn how we create beautiful smiles that are built to last. We look forward to joining you on your smile journey at your next consultation!
A porcelain veneer is minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that’s designed to cover a wide array of imperfections in teeth all at the same time. This is done through personalized ceramic sheaths that are customized to your exact specifications. That means problems like gaps, chips, stains, cracks, and other imperfections can be hidden instantly with a single treatment.
Veneers are particularly useful for those that have dark discolorations in teeth that don’t respond to traditional whitening solutions. And, thanks to the structural makeup of porcelain, veneers can be specifically crafted to be incredibly thin. That means less of your natural tooth needs to be removed to ensure they sit flush against your enamel.
When you arrive for your initial consultation, we’ll perform a thorough exam of your smile to make sure veneers are the best cosmetic option for you (as well as confirm no dental disease is present). Any gum disease or tooth decay will need to be handled before cosmetic dentistry can be performed.
Before receiving veneers, you’ll have your teeth cleaned and a small amount of enamel etched away to make room for the eventual restoration. We’ll capture digital impressions of your teeth, which will be used to design your permanent veneers. In the meantime, you’ll be given a set of temporary veneers to protect your teeth and help you get acquainted to your new smile.
After about two weeks, you’ll come back to our office to have the permanent veneers bonded to your teeth. You’ll have an opportunity to address any concerns you have about your new restorations before you leave.
