Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells that are bonded over the front of your teeth. A cosmetic dentist uses these aesthetic restorations to transform the appearance of smiles that are otherwise healthy. They are such a popular cosmetic dental treatment that many of the celebrity smiles you see in Hollywood were those created with a set of porcelain dental veneers.
Dental veneers can cover up a wide range of dental imperfections and help you achieve the beautiful and confident smile you’ve always wanted. If our cosmetic dentist at Modern Dental & Implants has decided you are a candidate for a smile makeover with veneers, here are a few things you can expect:
A Brighter Smile
Veneers are made of hand-selected porcelain shades that look natural, yet brighter than your original teeth. You can keep them clean through daily brushing and routine dental cleanings. However, porcelain is stain-resistant, so your new smile will stay consistent in color for years to come.
Straighter Looking Teeth
Some people refer to veneers as “instant orthodontics.” Why? Because they can conceal
areas of minor tooth misalignment, crowding or small gaps. Veneers can be a substitute for braces only when there are no concerns within your back teeth or overall bite.
A Boost in Confidence
Imagine how you would feel if you didn’t have to worry about the embarrassment that
your teeth cause you? Nearly every patient who gets veneers will experience enhanced confidence to smile, laugh and talk in public. If you’re hiding your smile in selfies — or refraining from taking them at all — then veneers can be a game-changing decision.
Did you know that getting cosmetic veneers only takes 2-3 short office visits? After your initial consultation, we can explain the specific stages of your veneer procedure. This might involve a diagnostic pre-view on a model, or even trying in a temporary “wax up” of the proposed veneers. Once you are ready to move forward with your new smile, we can prep your existing teeth and fabricate the final restorations that will be bonded in place about two weeks later. It’s a painless and quick process with instant results!
