What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are custom crafted from high-grade ceramics. Made into thin shells that fit directly over the front-facing teeth and into the smile line, each veneer is designed to match the color, shape and size of the surrounding teeth. As a result, gaps, slight crowding, misalignment, stains and chips can be overcome to leave a natural looking appearance.
Ultimately, receiving a set of porcelain veneers provides a convenient alternative for people who would, otherwise, have to consider more lengthy procedures like braces or Invisalign aligners to improve their teeth.
Who is a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Before moving forward with receiving a set of porcelain veneers, the first step is to visit Dr. Hamlett for an oral health evaluation. He’ll be looking for signs of cavities, gum disease and any other problems that could jeopardize the effectiveness and overall success of the porcelain veneers procedure.
If any issues are found, they’ll first need to be addressed. Once this is taken care of, the smile-upgrade process can officially begin. An additional benefit of your cosmetic dentist taking this more conservative approach is that patients are able to enjoy the new smile longer – in some cases more than 15 years!
What is the Procedure Like?
Typically, the porcelain veneers procedure can be completed in two-to-three visits to our office. Here are the steps we’ll usually take:
- Numbing Medication – to ensure a painless experience
- Enamel Preparation – a thin layer of enamel removed to make room for the veneers to fit naturally into the smile line
- Fabrication – bite impressions captured and sent to an in-network lab for fabrication
- Temporary Veneers Placed – to protect any exposed teeth during the fabrication process
- Final Placement – the finished veneers permanently bonded into position, and any final adjustments are made
With the expert care of Dr. Hamlett and our highly-skilled team, you’ll have a brand-new smile in just a few weeks’ time.
What are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
The advantages of porcelain veneers are numerous. As previously mentioned, a primary perk of having them placed is that they don’t require a lengthy treatment protocol like other processes. Instead, in just a few weeks, patients are left with a smile that looks like they were born with it.
Naturally, such an “about-face” in one’s appearance is accompanied with a boost in self-esteem, which can make for more favorable encounters with other people. And in some cases, the added confidence that comes along with having a gorgeous smile can translate into career advancement.
All of these benefits hinge on one thing: your action. So contact us today to schedule an initial visit with Dr. Hamlett. A beautiful new smile is just around the corner!
