The appearance of your smile plays a crucial role in how you feel about yourself and how others view you. If you are like one-third of adults, you probably do not like how your teeth look. If cosmetic flaws leave you feeling insecure about your appearance, you do not have to live with the imperfections. At Parker Dental & Orthodontics, we have the solution you need to get the smile of your dreams. No matter if you have gapped, crooked, or discolored teeth, porcelain veneers can help!
Transform Your Smile
Porcelain veneers have quickly become one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments because they are versatile and minimally invasive. By attaching the thin shells to the front surfaces of your teeth, you will instantly improve your smile. They offer the perfect solution for closing gaps or making your teeth appear straighter without having to spend months wearing braces.
In addition to alignment concerns, they can give you the bright smile that you have always wanted. By covering dark tooth discoloration, your teeth will be whiter with results that will last because porcelain is stain-resistant.
Overall, you will improve the size, shape, color and proportion of your teeth. This provides the perfect solution if you suffer from chips, cracks, or a gummy smile. In as little as two appointments, you will have the drastic, natural-looking results you want.
Choose a Minimally Invasive Solution
When compared to traditional veneers, porcelain has become the preferred material. Not only does it provide more natural-looking results, but the veneers are also thinner. As a result, less of the tooth’s structure is removed during the bonding process. This allows more of the tooth to remain in tact to provide a minimally invasive treatment.
To begin the transformation process, your teeth will be cleaned and prepared for bonding. This involves lightly etching their surfaces to ensure that the veneers sit flush. Then, scans are taken to create your veneers to match your exact specifications. While the dental lab makes them, temporary ones are attached. In about two weeks, you will return to have your final ones bonded in place.
With the right aftercare, your new smile can last for an average of 10 years before needing to be replaced. Although veneers are strong, they can chip or crack. To prevent damage, it is best to avoid using your teeth as tool to open packages or chewing on overly hard foods, like ice.
While the veneers are not subject to tooth decay, your underlying teeth can still become compromised. To prevent cavities, use a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste to clean your teeth twice a day. Do not forget to floss each night and maintain your semi-annual dental appointments.
