Porcelain Dental Veneers: One Quick Solution For The Smile You Want
Your smile is one of the most important features of your face, so it’s normal that you want to make sure it looks its best. You may be looking to improve your smile, but might be running into issues such as not having the time to have multiple cosmetic dental issues treated. If you’re looking for one quick solution to improve your smile, then look no further. At Legacy Dental, Moses Lake cosmetic dentist, Dr. Briel Loiseau can quickly and effectively improve your smile with porcelain veneers.
What Are Porcelain Dental Veneers?
Porcelain dental veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that your cosmetic dentist, Dr. Loiseau can adhere to the front of your teeth. Once installed, porcelain veneers instantly improve the look of your smile by concealing cosmetic flaws and making your smile appear whiter, more even, and more appealing. All it takes for your cosmetic dentist to install your veneers is the painless removal of a minimal amount of enamel (less than the width of a fingernail) before they’re bonded to your natural teeth.
Benefits of Porcelain Dental Veneers
Improves Your Smile – Porcelain veneers improve the look of your smile by concealing cosmetic flaws such as:
- Discoloration and staining
Replaces Lost Enamel – Porcelain veneers can help replace missing enamel, helping to combat issues such as staining and dental sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.
Immediate Improvement – As soon as your porcelain veneers are placed, they instantly improve the look of your smile by providing them with a natural-looking appearance.
One Solution for Multiple Issues – Porcelain veneers offer a singular solution for completely transforming your smile.
Improves Teeth That Don’t Respond To Whitening – If you have teeth that won’t respond to whitening, porcelain veneers can conceal them, providing the appearance of a whiter smile.
Stain Resistance – Porcelain veneers are resistant to staining and discoloration, helping your smile look whiter for longer.
Minimally-Invasive Treatment – Porcelain veneers are a minimally invasive way to improve your smile, requiring no surgery or incisions.
The Porcelain Dental Veneers Process
To discover if you qualify for porcelain veneers, Dr. Loiseau will have you attend an initial consultation. During your consultation, he’ll thoroughly examine your mouth, review your medical history, and ask you about your smile goals. While the process for getting porcelain veneers is painless, Dr. Loiseau can offer sedation dentistry options to help you feel relaxed.
Designing Your Porcelain Veneers
Once Dr. Loiseau has approved you for porcelain veneers, we’ll help you pick the shade of porcelain you like. You can choose a shade that matches your natural smile, or choose a lighter shade for a brighter, whiter smile. Then, we’ll take images and impressions of your smile that will serve as the blueprints for your custom-made porcelain veneers. You’ll return to Legacy Dental to have your porcelain veneers installed once they’re ready.
Your Moses Lake cosmetic dentist will show you your porcelain veneers, to make sure they’re to your liking. If you approve of your new porcelain veneers, Dr. Loiseau will clean your teeth and remove a small amount of enamel from their front surfaces. This will provide a flat, even surface, that will help your porcelain veneers look natural once they’ve been applied.
Installing Your Porcelain Veneers
Once your teeth are ready, your cosmetic dentist will check the fit of your porcelain veneers to make sure they’ll sit right and feel comfortable. Then, he’ll apply the veneers with a small amount of dental-grade adhesive. Once the adhesive has been set, you’ll be free to enjoy your new smile.
