Instant Smile Makeovers with Porcelain Veneers
A smile makeover means different things to different people. For some, it can mean a simple teeth whitening procedure, and for others it can entail a list of cosmetic services, like tooth bonding, gum contouring, cosmetic braces, and more.
In some cases, Dr. Schmidt can perform a comprehensive smile makeover with only a single procedure. Porcelain veneers, which are ultra-thin shells of dental porcelain, can be bonded to the front surfaces of multiple teeth, concealing and correcting a variety of blemishes.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
- Every porcelain veneer is hand-crafted to match the size, shape, and color of a specific tooth. Even if you have multiple teeth that need correction, your veneers will be placed individually for a highly-realistic finish.
- The porcelain used for veneers is not only tinted to your tooth’s specific color, but is also semi-translucent, just like a tooth’s enamel. When layered, dental porcelain can reflect light in the same manner as your unique tooth enamel, making your veneers almost indistinguishable from your healthy, natural teeth.
- Placing porcelain veneers often requires lightly sculpting the front surfaces of your teeth to make room for the shells. The preparation is minimal and still allows you to preserve the majority of your healthy tooth structure. For many patients, though, Dr. Schmidt can recommend no-prep veneers, which do not require permanent tooth preparation.
