Porcelain Veneers in Loomis
Conceal Cracks in Your Teeth with Porcelain Veneers!
A porcelain veneer is a thin shell of ceramic that is created to conceal a damaged, misshapen, or cosmetically flawed tooth from view. Veneers are made to look like your natural teeth, which make them the ideal form of dental camouflage for a lackluster smile. Each veneer is affixed to the front of a tooth permanently, allowing you to regain confidence in your appearance. Using this technique, it’s also possible to diminish unwanted gaps between teeth, conceal severe dental staining, and seamlessly correct other cosmetic concerns.
Porcelain veneers are crafted from a durable material by a licensed ceramist. They reflect light as natural teeth do, so the presence of a porcelain veneer shouldn’t be noticed by others. A porcelain veneer is actually constructed to be stronger than ordinary enamel is, so patients will be able to eat and drink normally. The best part of porcelain veneers is that they’re permanent, so you won’t have to worry about anything other than showing off your beautiful smile.
The materials that are used to construct a porcelain veneer are stain-resistant, which means that you won’t have to worry about your smile darkening over the years. If you have wanted to see Dr. Mercer for teeth whitening, you should schedule that appointment before you begin porcelain veneer treatment. This way, we’ll be able to match your veneer to the brighter shade of your teeth.
Once we determine porcelain veneers are the right cosmetic solution for your smile, you should plan to visit our office at least two times for treatment. At the first appointment, we numb the area to be treated and remove a small amount surface tooth enamel. This allows the veneer to lay flat within the smile line. We capture impressions of the prepared teeth and create a design for our dental lab. Finally, we place a temporary to protect the prepared teeth. When we receive the custom veneers from our lab, you’ll return to exchange the two for a flawless, natural looking smile.
