Find out how these porcelain restorations can improve the appearance of your smile.
Do you feel self-conscious about your smile because of discolorations, gaps between your teeth, or other common imperfections? If you said “yes,” then our Mount Pleasant, SC, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Cynthia Garner, has a simple solution that could give you a whole new smile in just two visits.
What are dental veneers?
A veneer is a very thin shell often made from porcelain that is bonded to the front surface of a tooth to alter and enhance its shape, size, or color. Veneers are often placed when someone is dealing with widespread cosmetic flaws that affect multiple teeth. In this case, veneers can even be placed on all teeth that are visible when you smile.
You may want to consider getting dental veneers if you are dealing with,
- Discolorations and stains
- Chips and cracks
- Gaps between teeth
- Worn teeth
- Misshapen or malformed teeth
- Slightly crooked or misaligned smiles
Pretty much any flaw that solely impacts the appearance of your teeth (as opposed to the integrity) can be hidden with the help of dental veneers. Want to get a straighter smile but your minor alignment issues don’t seem significant enough to warrant wearing braces for months? Getting veneers can easily provide you with a straighter smile without ever needing braces.
What should I know about getting dental veneers?
In order to get dental veneers, our Mount Pleasant, SC, dentist will need to first examine your smile and make sure that your teeth are healthy and strong enough to support veneers. After you have been approved for treatment, our dentist will remove a very small amount of enamel from the front of each tooth to make room for the veneers.
Once the teeth have been prepped, we will also need to take impressions of your teeth. These impressions will then be given a dental lab so that they can create veneers that are perfectly fitted to your smile. In the meantime, temporary veneers will be applied to the front of your teeth to protect them until your permanent veneers are ready to be bonded to your smile.
After your veneers have been sent back to our Mount Pleasant office, we can install bond them to your smile in a single procedure, giving you a completely rejuvenated look!
