A flawless smile free of stains and damaged teeth is something many achieve through various cosmetic dental procedures. In fact, most people whose smiles appear white and straight have benefited from one form of cosmetic dentistry or another. One popular method for achieving a total smile makeover is receiving porcelain veneers. Dr. Amer understands that an attractive looking smile is an important social asset and for this reason, our team is proud to offer veneers that produce flawless, beautiful smiles.
How Veneers Transform Smiles
Crooked and gapped teeth, stained teeth, or misshapen teeth can be transformed by this cosmetic dental procedure. Porcelain veneers are super thin pieces of handcrafted porcelain that are permanently cemented over teeth. Veneers can conceal almost any flaw without compromising a natural looking appearance. Since porcelain is reflective and comes in various shades of white, this material closely resembles biological teeth. When teeth whitening or restorations are not enough to produce a flawless smile, veneers are often used because they create a uniform look.
When a patient decides to receive veneers, Dr. Amer will take impressions of the patient’s teeth. These molds will be used to create the specifications needed to make veneers. Made in dental laboratories by trained technicians, each veneer is created for a particular tooth so that patients enjoy the most natural enhancements possible. When determining the size and shape of veneers, Dr. Amer will also take into account facial structures such as the size of the mouth and the lips so that the result is complementary to each patient.
Types of Porcelain Veneers
There exist two types of veneer placement options: Veneers that require some preparation for the bonding process and veneers that can be bonded to the teeth without preparation. Preparing a tooth for veneers involves the dentist removing a very small portion of enamel from the surface of the tooth. No-prep veneers, however, can be placed over the teeth without removing tooth structure.
When choosing the type of veneers to improve your smile, it is best to schedule a detailed consultation. Call our office today to reserve an appointment.
