Little changes to your smile can make a big difference. Just as a small blemish or inconsistency on one tooth can strongly affect your self-esteem, a little care can give you a dramatic boost in your confidence and leave you smiling proudly. At Eagle Dental, we provide porcelain veneers as part of our cosmetic dentistry services with the expertise and care you need.
What are Porcelain Veeneers
Porcelain veneers are dental-grade coverings that are placed over the front of a tooth. They’re permanently fixed in place and can greatly enhance the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored, or misshapen. If you have a tooth that stands out from the rest, a veneer could be the perfect option to give you a balanced smile.
Veneers have many benefits compared to other cosmetic treatments. First, they’re minimally invasive compared to crowns and orthodontic procedures used to enhance appearance. They’re long lasting, and you can expect them to last up to 15 years. They can make a dramatic difference to your visual appearance to alleviate a self-conscious smile and strongly mimic your natural teeth. Veneers are also amazingly stain-resistant, even more so than the natural enamel of your teeth to resist discoloration. At Eagle Dental, we’re here to answer any questions before or after application to ensure you have the proper care for long-lasting benefits you can be proud of.
How do Veneers Work?
Veneer placement is typically done in two visits. During your first visit, we’ll examine the target tooth and shape it to best fit the veneer. The examination will measure the size and shade of the tooth to prepare the veneer covering. We’ll also take an impression of the tooth to provide the best, customized, and lasting fit. A temporary covering might be applied at the end of this visit until a technician has completed your permanent veneer.
In your following visit, your permanent veneer will be ready to apply to the tooth. We’ll clean and prepare the front surface, carefully adjusting and checking the fit of the veneer before cementing it into place. We take your long-term comfort and oral health to heart as the dentist will examine your bite and the fit, sculpting as necessary to ensure a comfortable, flawless fit.
