If you’ve ever considered improving the appearance of your smile, you will want to learn about porcelain veneers!
This is the dental treatment that is responsible for so many of the “Hollywood” smiles we admire. Veneers allow you to change the shape, shade, and size of your teeth so you can truly customize the smile you’ve always wanted.
What Is a Dental Veneer?
A veneer is actually a thin shell of porcelain that is designed to fit over your tooth structure.
Veneers are bonded directly to your teeth, providing durability and strength. They are translucent and reflect light similar to the way your natural tooth does, so they give your smile a natural and appealing look. They are also stain resistant, meaning that they won’t discolor at the rate that a natural tooth would, and they won’t require any whitening treatment.
Porcelain veneers can repair one or a few teeth, but they are best utilized to restore an entire smile.
Which Dental Issues Can Porcelain Veneers Restore?
Porcelain veneers are very versatile and can restore a number of dental problems including:
- Spaces or gaps between teeth
- Worn teeth
- Misalignment issues
- Discoloration or staining
- Size discrepancies
- Misshapen teeth
What Is the Process for Getting Veneers?
The first step in deciding if porcelain veneers are right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Call. If you decide to move forward, we will work together to design your new smile.
After your design consultation, your smile will be completed in two visits to our office. During your first appointment, Dr. Call will prepare your teeth for your new veneers and create temporary veneers for you to wear as you wait for your final restorations. Your temporary veneers will help you get used to the look and feel of your new smile.
Your final veneers are hand crafted at a local dental laboratory, and this process takes one to two weeks. When they are ready, you will return to RGC Dentistry to have them permanently placed. Dr. Call will make any necessary adjustments and you will be off to share your new smile with the world!
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
With excellent home care, porcelain veneers can last for 10 to 15 years. They are durable yet easy to take care of since brushing and flossing remain the same. They will brighten your smile with no maintenance or teeth whitening needed.
The confidence that a beautiful smile provides is truly priceless. Confidence can help you achieve both your personal and professional goals. You owe it to yourself to learn more about what’s possible for your smile, and you may be surprised to learn that it’s not out of reach.
