Veneers are a great way to update your smile without expensive surgery. You can whiten and straighten your teeth all at the same time with composite porcelain tooth veneers. You can even fill in gaps and correct chips and cracks in your teeth.
Reasons to Get Veneers
There are a variety of reasons why people decide to get porcelain veneers. Some of the most common include stained teeth, gaps between teeth, crooked teeth and chips and cracks in teeth. In fact, many dental issues can be solved with veneers.
Benefits of Veneers
The best part about veneers is that they look and feel just like your natural teeth—only better. In fact, you keep your own teeth; your dentist will simply upgrade the exteriors. The process is painless and simple. You can have a consultation one day and walk out with your new veneers after your next visit.
Talk to Your Dentist
It’s important to be honest with your dentist when it comes to veneers. Try to communicate as openly as possible about what you want and the outcome you expect from the veneers. Some people don’t communicate that they’d like a very dramatic change (or that they want a very subtle change) and don’t end up getting what they want. Total honesty will help your dentist understand the result you want.
Porcelain Tooth Veneer Process
Overview of Tooth Veneers After your consultation, you’ll schedule your veneer appointment. Your dentist will begin the process by numbing your gums and teeth with a local anesthetic. Your dentist will then begin to file down the enamel on your teeth. Don’t worry, your enamel will be replaced by a porcelain veneer. After the enamel has been removed, your tooth will be rough enough for a strong veneer bond. Your dentist will affix the veneer to your tooth with cement before solidifying the cement with a UV light.
You’ll be able to then take a look at your new smile and decide if you’d like any changes. Getting veneers is quick and virtually painless. It’s an outpatient procedure that’s also extremely affordable. It’s one of the few dental services that offers such big results in such a small amount of time.
