Many adults find themselves critiquing their smiles when they brush their teeth or if they catch their reflection in the mirror. Even with the best dental care habits, teeth can become stained, chipped, broken, or shifted out of place. Often patients believe that they will need expensive or even a series of treatments to improve their smile. However, with the team at Smile in Style, Diem Do DDS, in Marrero, LA, patients can receive porcelain dental veneers and smile with confidence once again.
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are slender strips of porcelain that are bonded to the front of the teeth. They are a common cosmetic treatment used to hide imperfections such as stained teeth, minor misalignment, or broken or damaged teeth. They are placed on a single tooth or on several teeth to help patients achieve their very best smile.
Receiving your dental veneers
Dental veneers are a straightforward and effective treatment that typically requires two dental appointments. During the first appointment, a fine amount of the tooth’s enamel is removed to allow space for the veneer to be placed and have a natural fit. Next, molds, measurements, and specifications for color will be taken. The information is then provided to a dental lab where the veneers are created.
When the veneers are complete, the patient will return to the office for the second appointment. The veneers will be set in place but not permanently bonded until the patient approves the restoration. Once the dentist and patient are happy, the veneers will be bonded into place, and adjustments made to ensure a comfortable fit.
Advantages of dental veneers
Dental veneers offer several advantages to patients, including:
- Provide strength and stability to teeth that are weak or damaged
- Custom-made restorations to the patient and dentist’s requirements
- A permanent solution lasting many years
