Did you watch the Golden Globes red carpet this month and wonder, “how do all these celebrities have such perfect teeth!?”. For many, the answer may be porcelain veneers! Thin, porcelain sheaths that are bonded to the front of teeth, porcelain veneers can dramatically improve the appearance of a person’s smile.
The good news is that you don’t have to be a movie star to get the beautiful smile of your dreams! Talk to a cosmetic dentist in Medina and keep reading below to learn more about whether porcelain veneers are the best solution to rejuvenate your smile.
How Porcelain Veneers in Medina Work
First, let’s take a look at how veneer treatment works. Porcelain veneers in Medina can typically be placed in just two easy trips to the dentist.
During the initial visit, your dentist will prepare your teeth for veneers by removing a tiny amount of enamel – usually less than a millimeter. He or she will also make bite impressions of your teeth and send them off to the dental laboratory. Finally, temporary veneers will be placed on your teeth to protect them from damage while your permanent veneers are crafted in the lab.
After a few short weeks, you will return to your dentist to have your temporary veneers exchanged for your new custom veneers. Once your veneers are bonded to your teeth using resin and special curing light, you can leave and immediately return to your normal daily routine – now with a rejuvenated smile!
What Dental Flaws Do Veneers Fix?
Whether you want to address a few flawed teeth or transform your entire smile, porcelain veneers can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. Men and women in Medina every year opt for porcelain veneers to correct the following dental imperfections:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Misshapen teeth or worn down teeth
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Teeth with gaps between them
Am I a Good Candidate?
Are you unhappy with your smile? Even a small chip or crack can have a negative impact on your self-esteem and keep you from thriving in social and professional settings. If you have any of the dental imperfections listed in the section above and are ready to do something about it, you are likely a good candidate for porcelain veneers. Good candidates must also:
- Practice good oral hygiene on a daily basis
- Have healthy teeth and gums
- Have sufficient healthy tooth enamel
- Do not grind or clench their teeth (this can damage veneers)
If you are ready to make 2020 the year that you achieve the beautiful smile you have always wanted, talk to a cosmetic dentist in Medina today about whether porcelain veneer treatment is right for you.
