Stunning & Natural Looking Smile!
If you’ve ever seen someone with perfectly straight teeth, you might wonder how they got that way. It’s possible they may have been professionally straightened with braces. But, more likely, their teeth have been improved through the use of dental veneers.
Dental veneers – also known as laminates – are used to cosmetically enhance the appearance of one or more teeth. Veneers are very thin, porcelain or resin shells that are customized for a desirable color and shape. They are bonded to the surface of the teeth to reshape broken, misshapen or irregular teeth, as well as provide a solution for discolored teeth that do not respond to traditional whitening treatments. Patients with veneers typically achieve a natural tooth appearance that is well-tolerated by the gums and also resistant to future stains.
Porcelain Veneers vs. Full Crown - What is the Best Option?
Porcelain veneers and full crowns each have a purpose when it comes to reconstructing a smile. Mainly, it depends on what you need to achieve on your dental visit. Depending on your needs, your dentist will recommend whichever option they feel best suits your situation. When the tooth is decayed, a dental crown may be considered to restore the surface to a like new appearance. Dental Veneers are often the best choice for those looking to change tooth, color, shape and contour. When it comes to reconstructing or cosmetically enhancing your smile , there are plenty of options to ensure that your results are comfortable, aesthetically pleasing and last for the long term.
Does the Dental Veneer Procedure Hurt?
The biggest fear of many is the pain, but while the veneers are being placed it should be pain free. Our Top Notch dental office now offers pain free, needle free Anesthesia. The patient will be anesthetized with a nasal spray and feel absolutely no pain whatsoever. While the teeth are being prepared for the veneers there should be no discomfort at all.
Do veneers stain like natural tooth?
Unlike natural teeth, custom-made veneers resist coffee and tea stains, and cigarette smoke because they are made of high-tech materials. For teeth that resist whitening, veneers can make even the darkest teeth appear bright white.
How Long Do Dental Veneers Last?
For those concerned about durability, most dental veneers have plenty. Veneers usually have a lifespan of around five to ten years, depending on the material out of which they are made. After their prospective lifespan the given veneers will need to be replaced to maintain a beautiful smile.
How Long Does it Take to Get Dental Veneers?
Porcelain veneers should be treated as a long-term investment on your smile. We recommend taking the time to do it right. How long it takes to get your dental veneers depends mainly on your dentists (and your own) schedule. That aside, a typical dental veneer procedure requires two visits. The first treatment visit is to prepare the teeth and take proper measurements for a state-of-the-art lab and master ceramist, who will create your custom veneers. Then temporaries are placed while your veneers are being created. The second appointment involves securely bonding your new veneer giving you a revitalized, glowing smile.
How Much Do Dental Veneers Cost?
The cost of veneers depends on how much work you will be having done and most importantly which material you choose for your veneers to be crafted from. We offer free initial consultation including FREE EXAM & X-RAY.
Do Porcelain Veneers Look as Natural as Original Teeth?
Veneers are individually sculpted for each patient, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. Porcelain Veneers restore natural tooth function while, the luster, shine, and translucency of porcelain creates an even better appearance than the original tooth.
