If you have ever wanted to transform the overall look of your smile with cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers can do that for you. Porcelain veneers are natural-colored shells that cover the front surface of your teeth.
These thin shells are bonded right onto the teeth to recreate the look of natural teeth. Porcelain veneers can make your teeth look totally different. They can change the length, size and shape of your natural teeth.
If you think getting porcelain veneers is something you would like to investigate, just call Atlantic Dentistry, and we will be happy to set you up for a consultation. The dentist will discuss how the procedure is completed and what you can expect your new smile to look like. The veneer will replace a very small amount of your own tooth enamel. This is done so there is room for the veneer to fit in your mouth properly.
Porcelain veneers are made unique for each patient, and no one will know they are not your natural teeth. The veneers are great for resisting staining of the teeth. If you are a coffee drinker, wine drinker or smoke, the porcelain veneers will not stain.
Some patients get porcelain veneers to fix small gaps or minor issues with their teeth.
Maintaining porcelain veneers is a very simple process. Once you have them placed on your teeth, a regular dental routine is fine. Continue to brush and floss as you would your natural teeth. As with regular teeth, you will want to come back on a regular basis to maintain that polished look. If you have been wanting a different smile or just want to have a few flaws fixed, porcelain veneers may be just the solution you seek.
