Porcelain Veneers Can Change Your Smile in Two Visits
Uneven, chipped or discolored teeth are the easiest dental flaws to spot. The application of porcelain veneers, however, can turn those flaws into assets.
A porcelain veneer (also called a laminate) is a thin glass-like shell of porcelain that fits over any problem teeth.
Case Study: Poorly Shaped Teeth– our patient (above) had poorly shaped teeth, which slanted in different directions. We restored her upper teeth with all porcelain restorations. After the completion of this case, our patient said,
“[T]hank you for my movie star smile. Your expert creativity in Dentistry exceeds perfection. You are truly a gem and a visionary.”
The advantages of porcelain veneers include:
- Natural color, translucence, and texture
- Extremely durable
- Resist stains and won’t decay
- Close gaps between your teeth
- Lengthen and reshape teeth
- Nearly as strong as normal teeth
Veneers can be applied in just two visits, require little or no anesthesia and are well suited to repairing front teeth. To read more about the veneer procedure, click here. Maintenance is a simple matter of routine oral care, based on regular brushing, flossing and rinsing.
For very minor chipping or unevenness, a Lumineer may do. However, for most cases we recommend da Vinci Extreme Makeover veneers.
