Porcelain veneers are an easy way to improve the look of your smile quickly. They may be used on their own to fill gaps, correct an undesirable shape, smooth chips, or cover up teeth that can’t be whitened with bleaching procedures such as office power whitening.
This type of treatment may also be combined with other procedures such as Invisalign for straightening or tooth-colored crowns to rebuild damaged teeth as part of a comprehensive smile makeover. Many of the procedures that may be combined with porcelain veneers as part of a smile makeover are also alternatives to veneers.
If Big Smile Dental finds that porcelain veneers are the best way to improve your smile, you may receive either traditional veneers or Lumineers. Both types of veneers are thin layers of porcelain. These strips are securely bonded to the front of the teeth. Once bonded, the porcelain is highly durable and strong, resistant to forces from chewing and other everyday functions.
Lumineers are one brand of veneers manufactured by DenMat. Veneers typically require a small amount of natural tooth enamel be removed to make way for the width of the porcelain applied to cover up stubborn stains or reshape jagged surfaces and uneven edges. Only a small amount of natural tooth enamel is removed, as the veneers themselves are very thin.
Since our team specializes in porcelain veneers that improve the look of your smile naturally, they don’t look fake. Along these lines, when considering veneers it is important to choose a doctor skilled in applying these dental materials as it is a very technique-specific procedure. Veneers-wearers should not be spotted from a mile away. Veneers should appear seamless and like your natural teeth, only better.
You can read many tips on choosing the best veneer, but only professionals such as those at Big Smile Dental will know what option is best for your smile. A treatment plan may not include veneers at all, or it may include veneers in conjunction with other procedures. Whatever the case may be, there is a solution for every patient to address every type of concern.
