This blog post from Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper WY focuses on an effective and versatile cosmetic dental procedure, porcelain veneers.
Veneers are individual covers for the front part of teeth. They are an extraordinary way to repair a myriad of tooth imperfections such as chips, stains, yellowing, unattractive shape or minimal misalignment.
Have you ever wished for a minimally-invasive facelift for a tooth without getting an entire crown? Porcelain veneers are your answer! Strong, tooth-colored porcelain laminate is shaped into thin shells and custom-fitted for each patient’s unique set of teeth.
How many veneers should you get? This depends on how many teeth you want to brighten and the overall condition of your teeth. We can counsel you on the most effective strategy.
The thickness, enamel color, alignment, and shape of your teeth affect the final result as well as whether you have any gum recession. Veneers are matched to your existing teeth so they will blend seamlessly, but if you are planning to treat several teeth, you definitely want to have them fabricated in the same “batch” at the lab.
The first step in the veneer process is to make a model of your teeth to work from. After that, a dental technician will use the model to create the veneers to the perfect size, shape, color, and level of translucency. Experienced cosmetic dentists and dental technicians elevate the level of artistry in this It’s a painstaking process.
Many patients wonder if veneers are as durable as their natural teeth. Though the veneer tooth-prep process weakens the tooth slightly, with proper care, veneers can last up to 15 years. We’ll advise you in detail on proper care of porcelain veneers.
