How often do you try to hide your smile? If hiding your smile is a priority at all, you deserve better. Embarrassment about your smile can manifest itself in the emotions you feel and the enjoyment you take from life. So if your teeth are a source of embarrassment, the time has come to do something about it. If you’re in the market for a new smile, porcelain veneers offer a quick and effective transformation that can give you a stunning and radiant new smile.
To help you learn more about them, Dr. Deborha Staten is responding to the most frequently asked questions about porcelain veneers.
What problems can veneers fix?
Saying that veneers fix problems may not be the right terminology. Rather than fixing problems, veneers mask them with the application of thin shells of porcelain. These shells attach to the front surfaces of teeth, where they can cover cosmetic blights like gaps, stained teeth, crooked teeth, damaged teeth, and pitted teeth. Once in position, veneers stay firmly in place, leaving you with a smile that looks flawless.
How long does it take to receive porcelain veneers?
Dr. Staten can apply porcelain veneers to your teeth in a few dental visits. Following a consultation, Dr. Staten will create a mold of your teeth that she will send to a lab so that your veneers can be custom made to fit your teeth precisely. Once the veneers have been created, you will attend a fitting to check that the veneers are the proper size and fit. Following your fitting, you will attend a final dental visit so that your veneers can be applied to your teeth.
How strong are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are very durable and stain-resistant. Following the application of veneers, your new, radiant smile will last for many years to come.
