Porcelain Veneers For Dazzling New Smile
Porcelain veneers can address many cosmetic concerns with a single treatment. Veneers are thin, tooth-colored porcelain shells that fit over the front of your teeth to conceal imperfections. The team at Westchase Esthetic Family Dentistry can use veneers to create a smile that complements your unique features and gives you renewed self-confidence. To learn more about how you can benefit from porcelain veneers, contact our office and schedule a consultation today.
Veneers can provide tremendous benefits for those who wish to address:
- Discoloration or staining, especially if the teeth are affected by intrinsic stains that do not respond to teeth whitening treatment.
- Chipped or cracked teeth.
- Mild to moderate misalignment.
- Uneven, misshapen, or worn teeth.
Candidates should also have healthy teeth and gums, since the veneers require a healthy foundation. If you suffer with bruxism (teeth grinding), we must address the condition before moving ahead with veneers or other cosmetic treatments.
Minimal-prep Porcelain Veneers
If you want to correct your cosmetic issues in just a few weeks, we can place minimal prep porcelain veneers. During your first appointment, we will determine the coloration and alignment you wish to achieve. Next, your dentist will remove less than one-quarter of a millimeter of enamel from the teeth you wish to treat. This process typically requires local anesthesia, but we can provide other sedation treatments if necessary.
After taking an impression of your prepared teeth, we will place temporary veneers, which provide an excellent appearance and fit. Your temporary veneers will act as templates for your permanent veneers that will allow you to preview your results and provide feedback. Based on the fit and feel of your temporaries, we can make adjustments to your permanent veneers.
Once your permanent veneers are ready, you will return to our office, and we will apply them to your teeth with bonding cement for a secure hold. Finally, you can leave our office with a beautiful new smile.
