Porcelain Veneers – Harris County, GA
Get Your Perfect Smile with Porcelain Veneers
When your teeth have noticeable flaws, it can make you want to hide them. Your smile doesn’t show the confidence you want to portray, and maybe it even interferes with your interactions with others. But you don’t have to live with imperfect teeth. Instead of undergoing several different cosmetic dental procedures, you can choose the one that will address it all. Porcelain veneers not only can give you the smile you’ve always wanted but can also restore your confidence.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are custom-made, thin, tooth-colored ceramic shells that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth to change their color, shape, length, or size. They can dramatically transform your smile’s appearance by addressing several kinds of flaws:
- Chipped teeth.
- Discolored teeth.
- Misshaped teeth.
- Worn-down teeth.
- Small gaps between teeth.
Basically, if you want to cover an imperfection in your smile, getting a porcelain veneer is a great option.
What are the types of porcelain veneers?
There are two types of porcelain veneers: traditional and minimal prep. To determine the type that fits your needs, you’ll want to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists to evaluate your oral health, aesthetic concerns, and treatment goals.
Traditional porcelain veneers
Traditional veneers are custom-made at a dental laboratory by a skilled technician. To make room in your mouth for a traditional veneer, your dentist will need to remove a small amount of enamel.
Much thinner than their traditional counterpart, minimal-prep veneers do not require removing tooth enamel to place. They are a good option for patients who want porcelain veneers but want more conservative treatment.
What is the process of getting porcelain veneers?
After you and your dentist decide that traditional porcelain veneers are right for you, the dentist will remove about one millimeter of enamel on the treated tooth. Then they will take impressions and measurements of your teeth and send this information to the dental lab for fabrication. While you wait, the dentist will place a temporary veneer.
When the final product is finished, you will return to the dental office, and the dentist will permanently bond the veneer to the front of your teeth. In as little as two appointments, you could have the smile you’ve always dreamed of!
What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?
In addition to covering up the imperfections in your teeth, porcelain veneers have several advantages:
- Gum tissues respond well to porcelain, so you don’t have to worry about irritated gums.
- They are stronger and more durable than natural teeth, so they will be able to withstand normal wear and tear.
- They resist stains better than tooth enamel and will keep shining bright.
- They reflect light much like teeth, so they look natural.
