How are dental veneers used to improve the smile?
Smile enhancement is an excellent way for patients to boost their smiles’ brilliance and beauty. Smile makeovers are a popular solution when patients have many imperfections impacting their appearance. At Tooth Acres Dentistry of Fort Wayne, Indiana, Drs. Alyssa Fisher and L. Gary Painter can assist with dental veneers, a natural-looking cosmetic solution popular with patients.
What are dental veneers?
Our dentists at Tooth Acres Dentistry describe dental veneers as porcelain teeth veneers that offer coverage of imperfections. This cosmetic treatment is highly reliable and natural-looking when an experienced dental ceramist fabricates the restorations according to the models and specifications sent by our doctors. Porcelain veneers are like thin shells of porcelain bonded onto the front of a tooth with an imperfection to offer a disguise.
What can porcelain veneers hide?
Porcelain veneers are great for hiding issues such as:
- Misaligned teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Unusually shaped or short teeth
- Permanently stained teeth
How are veneers made?
Each dental veneer is custom-made for the patient to ensure they look completely natural when bonded over the tooth, blending in with the smile. Veneers take a few weeks to complete as part of the process, as a dental ceramist is responsible for creating the veneer to match the patient’s smile. They pay close attention to the color, size, and shape of the patient’s existing teeth and make the veneer to match accordingly. Two appointments are necessary for getting veneers. The first appointment is for preparing the natural tooth by filing down a portion of the enamel. The second appointment is for bonding the veneer in place once it is complete and sent to the dental office.
