Do you have teeth that have chipped or cracked? You may notice one tooth larger or smaller than the others. Perhaps you see some discoloration that has proven resistant to other whitening methods. If any of these issues make you unhappy about your smile, then LakeView Dental Arts can transform the appearance of your teeth with porcelain veneers.
How veneers can transform your smile
Veneers consist of a thin shell of dental porcelain that our cosmetic dentist bonds to the front surface of the tooth or teeth being treated. This cosmetic dental treatment is permanent and provides astonishing results that give you the most perfect-looking teeth imaginable.
Veneers address the following aesthetic complaints:
- Improving minor crookedness across several teeth
- Concealing the appearance of a twisted tooth
- Concealing an unwanted gap between teeth
- Adding length to teeth that appear too short
- Repairing chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
How many veneers will I need?
The number of veneers you need depends on the cosmetic issue you want to have treated. A single problematic tooth requires just one veneer. However, if you seek whiter teeth or to correct the appearance of crooked teeth, we may recommend placing veneers on all of the visible surfaces on your teeth. We often recommend other treatments as part of a smile makeover for patients who want multiple issues addressed.
Why do patients choose veneers?
Reason 1: The materials
LakeView Dental Arts uses beautiful, long-lasting dental porcelain to make your veneers. Our dental porcelain resists stains, making it ideal for patients who want a more permanent solution to whitening their smile. Dental porcelain also reflects light in a similar manner to real tooth enamel. Therefore, the results are completely natural.
Reason 2: Minimally invasive
Our cosmetic dentist removes a small amount of existing tooth structure to make room for the porcelain restoration and to help bond the veneer to your tooth surface.
We take impressions of your teeth and bite that are used to fabricate your restorations.
Before you leave, we place temporary veneers on your teeth that are worn for approximately two weeks while your final restorations are crafted.
Reason 3: Durability
When installed by a well-trained cosmetic dentist and by taking excellent care of your teeth, veneers can last as long as 10-15 years. Your veneers have a better chance of remaining effective if you keep up a diligent regimen of oral hygiene that includes daily brushing and flossing, in combination with regularly scheduled visits to LakeView Dental Arts for a cleaning and check-up. Avoid biting your fingernails or chewing on pens or pencils, which may damage your veneers.
