Have you ever noticed how beautiful those celebrities’ smiles are? Nearly all of them have amazing, pearly-white teeth that are perfectly shaped. They nearly blind you with the brilliance of their smiles. Most people think every single one of those movie stars was able to get their smiles naturally from the day they were born. However, for nearly all of them, that was not the case. Instead, movie stars, rock gods and goddesses, and wealthy people got those amazing teeth because of veneers. Have you ever heard of veneers? They can make your teeth look amazing. Give Brush & Floss Dental Center a minute to tell you about the use of veneers.
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable tooth shaped porcelain that are custom-made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many cosmetic dental conditions for the front teeth.
As with most dental restorations, veneers may someday need replacement; however, they are still very durable and will last many years, giving you a long-lasting, beautiful smile.
Reasons for Porcelain Veneers
What Does Porcelain Veneers Involve?
Receiving veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process. The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of each tooth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and our doctors.
On the second visit the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement is then placed between each tooth and veneer and a special light is used to harden and set the bond.
After your visit you will receive care instructions for your veneers. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your beautiful veneers.
