Enjoy a smile transformation with porcelain veneers
Imperfections in the smile can make a difference when it comes to the overall appearance. Chips, cracks, and spaces can negatively impact the appearance and make patients self-conscious about how they look when sharing their smiles. Thanks to solutions such as porcelain veneers, dental providers such as Dr. Yvonne Caton-Hospedales of Your Smile Dental Wellness Center in McDonough, Georgia, can enhance the smile quickly and easily!
Understanding how dental veneers work
Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.
Dental veneers are one of the most popular aesthetic dentistry solutions available today. Veneers are made from thin yet durable porcelain material and are designed to cover the front surfaces of teeth. They can be used to address several different aesthetic concerns, including:
- Gaps or spaces between teeth
- Teeth that are chipped or cracked
- Teeth that are misshapen or oddly-sized
- Teeth that are discolored or stained
- A gummy smile
Veneers are an excellent solution for our patients who want to improve the overall appearance of their smiles without undergoing extensive dental work. In most cases, these veneers can be placed in as little as two dental visits unless considering composite veneers, which can be completed in a single appointment.
The veneers process and procedure
Before placing veneers, Dr. Caton-Hospedales will work with patients to ensure they are the right solution for their needs and goals. Once it is determined that veneers are the best option, the next step is to prepare the teeth. This involves taking off a small quantity of enamel from the front surfaces of the teeth to make room for the veneers. Impressions or molds will then be taken of the teeth so custom veneers can be created in a dental lab.
In some cases, temporary veneers might be placed on the teeth while waiting for the permanent ones to be ready. Once they return from the lab, patients will return to the office so that Dr. Caton-Hospedales can check them for fit and bond them in place.
