How Porcelain Veneers Improve your Smile
Veneers are used to close gaps or cover teeth that are stained, poorly shaped, or slightly crooked. To provide form and help strengthen a veneer, a small amount of enamel may be removed from the front and edge of the tooth. Using resin cements, the veneers are set in place. Placing a veneer may be an irreversible process because a small amount of enamel is removed to accommodate the thickness of the veneer shell. Some veneers, known as “no-prep veneers” are placed over intact enamel.
By applying these thin sheaths of porcelain to the front surface of your teeth, Dr. Green can create a whiter and more uniform smile. The translucent quality of the porcelain allows the veneers to reflect light as your actual tooth would. This quality combined with the artistic eye of our cosmetic dentists during the placement of the veneers will create a beautiful, natural-looking smile. If you have crooked teeth, but are not interested in braces, you might be interested in the “instant orthodontics” feature of porcelain veneers.
Even the subtlest change in your smile can make a dramatic difference in the way you look and feel. Are you interested in learning whether porcelain veneers are the right dental solution for you? Call our office and speak to a team member at 561-622-2815 to schedule an appointment.
