How many imperfections does your smile exhibit? Noticeably stained, oddly spaced, slightly crooked, or otherwise unsightly teeth are common concerns, and sometimes, your teeth may suffer from more than one of these imperfections at once. When your smile’s confidence is under siege by severe or multiple cosmetic flaws, your dentist may recommend porcelain veneers, an instant smile makeover that can transform your smile with expert craftsmanship and minimal preparation.
Crafting Lifelike Porcelain Veneers
The secret to veneers’ success is their ability to closely resemble your natural teeth. After all, obvious dental work wouldn’t accomplish the goal of improving your smile’s confidence. The durable dental porcelain used to craft your veneers will be expertly tinted to match your teeth’s natural color, and specially layered to mimic your enamel’s light-reflecting properties. After a thorough examination and comprehensive measurements, your porcelain veneers will be hand-crafted specifically to your smile’s specifications. Because porcelain veneers are placed on the front surfaces of your teeth, they can cover a wide variety of issues at once, often creating an instant smile makeover.
Preparing a Tooth for a Wafer-Thin Veneer
During any dental treatment, your dentist will preserve as much healthy tooth structure as possible. To prepare your teeth for veneers, he will remove a minimal amount of tooth enamel so your teeth can comfortably accommodate the wafer-thin porcelain shells. Once your veneers have been crafted, they can be permanently bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth to completely transform your smile’s appearance.
