You can consider porcelain veneers an opportunity to play dress-up with your teeth. During this procedure, your teeth are fitted with a thin layer of porcelain so that you can obtain a smile that you find more attractive.
There are many reasons that you may want to discuss this option with our North Palm Beach professionals:
You want to change the shape or size of your teeth.
You want to make slight placement adjustments to some of your teeth.
You want whiter, prettier teeth without ongoing whitening treatments.
If you have healthy teeth and gums, you may be a good candidate to make these changes to the appearance of your smile with porcelain veneers. Professional dental staff can help you consider this option as well as others available when you go for a consultation. Most modern dental offices will also be able to show you images of what your mouth may look like with veneers before you make your final decision to go ahead with the treatment.
What to Expect
The procedure starts with the removal of the outer coat of enamel on your teeth. This is essential because you need to make room for the porcelain layer, which will soon become the new surface layer of your teeth. Light-sensitive resin is then applied to your tooth and hardened so that a tight bond can be established between the porcelain veneer layer and your natural tooth.
Veneers are created uniquely for your teeth. Their specific shape and color will be determined on-site by your dentist, and they will be installed in the correct position to create the beautiful smile you want to achieve.
Once your porcelain veneers are in place, they will look like natural, beautiful teeth. As long as you take care of them properly and continue to visit your North Palm Beach dental office for maintenance, they should give you a long-term solution to the imperfections you currently see in your smile.
