Porcelain Veneers at The Bellport Village Dentist
Are you looking for a way to create a brighter, whiter, and straighter smile? We’ve got the solution for you! Porcelain veneers continue to gain popularity due to their ability to create perfectly aligned teeth with translucent qualities of natural teeth using ceramic and porcelain materials. With porcelain veneers, you can smile with confidence once again. Let’s take a closer look at dental veneers.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are custom-designed shells that are applied to the surface of teeth. You can utilize veneers to cover worn enamel and uneven tooth alignment or spacing. Veneers can even be used to correct other appearance deformities including:
- Worn Enamel
- Wear and Tear
- Uneven Teeth
- Accidental Damage
How Long Does it Take?
In as little as three dental visits you can leave with an improved smile with veneers. These visits include diagnosis and treatment planning, preparation, and bonding.
To prepare your teeth for porcelain veneers, your dentist will lightly buff your teeth to allow for the small added thickness of the veneer. In order to do so, about half a millimeter of your tooth will be removed. Don’t worry, though, the small amount removed will be replaced with the actual veneer for your comfort.
It is important to remember that veneers are not for everyone. After a proper consultation with your dentist, a treatment plan can be created. So, say goodbye to discolored or misaligned teeth, and hello to an improved smile!
