Have you been dreaming of a more attractive smile? Do you wish that your teeth were straighter, whiter, and more uniform looking? Those who suffer with multiple types of smile imperfections may benefit from porcelain veneers—a permanent cosmetic enhancement that conceals flawed teeth and produces a total smile makeover. Veneers are incredibly durable and can last for decades with proper attention and care. Our cosmetic dentist offers porcelain veneer placement to patients in our area.
Who should receive porcelain veneers?
Adult patients who have relatively healthy teeth and gums are great candidates for veneers. Patients who would not benefit from orthodontic treatment and have misaligned teeth also benefit from this procedure. The best way to be sure if veneers are right for you is to schedule a consultation with our team.
Will porcelain veneers appear natural?
Yes, since veneers are crafted from high quality pieces of porcelain, they closely resemble the appearance of biological teeth. Porcelain is available in different shades of white and reflects light like teeth do because it is slightly translucent. In addition to porcelain’s natural looking appearance, our dentist will take special care to ensure that each veneer is the proper shape and size for each tooth. While veneers can completely transform a patient’s appearance, they will look and feel like natural teeth.
Is receiving veneers an invasive procedure?
The process to place porcelain veneers is not an invasive procedure. Most patients are comfortable throughout the process and only a mild, local anesthetic is used. Placing veneers involves gently removing some of the tooth’s enamel to create a bonding surface for the teeth. Veneers are then cemented using a bonding compound and while the compound dries, our team will make final adjustments of their placement to ensure patient satisfaction.
After the procedure, patients will leave our office with a new, beautiful smile. To learn more about our cosmetic services, call our office, East Hills Dental Associates, to set up an appointment with our team.
