Is your smile hampered by multiple imperfections, and you just do not know which one to take care of first? Do noticeable stains, chips, cracks, or gaps cause you to think twice before smiling or even taking a bite of food? Porcelain veneers have been used for decades to address several cosmetic issues at the same time, and now, you can get them in just two to three appointments with Tindal Prosthodontics. Dr. Tindal will transform your teeth to give you the smile of your dreams.
If you have good oral health, you are often a candidate for veneers; however, you will require a thorough consultation with Dr. Tindal to ensure they are right for you. After assessing your dental health and discussing your desired results, he will create a customized treatment plan to improve your smile.
With porcelain veneers, Dr. Tindal can correct the following cosmetic concerns using just one procedure:
Porcelain veneers are extremely thin ceramic shells fitted to the front surface of the tooth. They are custom-made to resemble healthy, flawless enamel. You can get just one to enhance a single tooth or an entire set to completely transform your smile. Either way, the end result is a beautiful set of teeth you will be eager to show off for many years to come.
Porcelain allows the veneers to be made thinner than those constructed from other materials. As a result, less of your tooth’s structure is removed during the bonding process. By leaving more of your healthy tooth intact, it makes the treatment minimally invasive.
To transform your teeth, they are first cleaned before having their surfaces lightly etched to remove a small amount of enamel. This ensures they sit flush on your teeth. Digital impressions are taken to get the exact measurements needed to create your veneers.
They are customized to meet your size, shape, and color needs. It can take the dental lab a couple weeks to make them with accuracy. While you wait, your dentist, Dr. Tindal attaches temporary ones. When the final veneers are sent back to the office, you return for your second appointment to have them bonded in place.
With the right aftercare, your new smile can last for several years before needing to be replaced. On average, they will give you the results you want for about 10 years. To protect your investment, it is best to use nonabrasive dental products when cleaning your teeth and avoid anything that may damage them, such as using your teeth as tools to open packages or chewing on overly hard foods, like ice. Do not forget to visit your dentist twice a year for a cleaning and checkup.
