Look Like A Celebrity With Porcelain Veneers

Celebrities are known for showing off their porcelain veneers. Dental Veneers may be the best way to replicate picture-perfect teeth, but each mouth is different. The material of choice is typically porcelain  for those looking to make slight position alterations, or to change tooth shape, size, and/or color.We will need to discuss all the options of improvement together.

Most likely your first appointment will begin with a smile analysis. This will help determine what steps are necessary to achieve the smile you desire. Communication is crucial for  successful results. Spend time clearly identifying what cosmetic improvements you want to accomplish so that we understand how to help.

Deciding that porcelain veneers will create the look you want is only one step in the process. There is much more to learn Dental Veneers before proceeding further. Our team can help every step of the way.

Dental Veneers are a successful option when an original tooth has developed poor color, shape, or contour.  It is also a good choice for fractured teeth, gaps between teeth, and in some situations where the tooth position is compromised and there are minor bite-related problems. In addition, Dental Veneers are suggested for teeth in a situation superficial stains do not respond well to tooth whitening or bleaching. In these situations, we can discuss your treatment options.

Porcelain veneers consist of a compilation of several thin ceramic layers. This  will replace original tooth enamel, and an adhesive layer. To apply a veneer, a very small amount of the original tooth enamel must be removed, this is usually less than one millimeter of the enamel. This is step is essential as it creates room for the porcelain veneer to fit within the mouth. The process is designed to preserve the natural tooth function while creating a better appearance.

The bond between original tooth and porcelain veneer is critical.  It not only provides the esthetic perfection desired, but it also  creates a strong bond for the tooth itself. A light-sensitive resin is placed between the original tooth and the Dental veneer and then hardened using a technology advanced curing light.

Enjoy That Dental Veneers Appeal : Hilton Head Island and Bluffton, SC

Since veneers are individually sculpted for each patient, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. Unlike natural teeth, custom-made veneers resist coffee and tea stains, and cigarette smoke because they are made of high-tech materials. The dentist may also recommend veneers to quickly fix minor twists, overlaps, and small gaps.

With dental veneers—as opposed to crowns—your natural teeth remain largely intact. Only a minimal amount of your altered tooth is removed to fit the veneer.

After the porcelain veneers are attached you will probably have some sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures due to the removal of that thin layer of enamel. This typically disappears within a few days. You should avoid the same excessive stresses you would avoid with natural teeth.

Please  don’t bite your fingernails, chew ice, or open a beer bottle with your veneers! Treat them as you would your original teeth, with routine brushing, tongue scraping, and flossing. Remember, this is about enhancing your life with the brightness of your smile!
