An attractive, healthy smile can be tarnished by minor cosmetic flaws like stains and gaps between teeth. Porcelain veneers are often used for these types of imperfections to improve the appearance of the smile. If you feel self-conscious about how your smile looks and are interested in a long-lasting solution, porcelain veneers may be just what you're looking for.
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells made of porcelain, which like tooth enamel, are slightly translucent to allow some light to pass through its surface rather than simply reflecting it. This makes the veneers look completely natural so you can smile with confidence knowing your teeth look great.
When Porcelain Veneers Are Used
Porcelain veneers can be used to address several cosmetic issues including:
- Severely discolored or stained teeth
- Teeth that are too large or too small
- Unwanted or uneven spaces between teeth
The Placement Process
Veneers dental treatment typically requires two visits to our Pensacola FL dentist office with little or no anesthesia necessary during the procedure. The teeth are prepared for the veneers by shaping the tooth surfaces to allow for the thickness of the veneers. A mold or impression is taken of the teeth to send to a lab to prepare the veneers. You and your dentist will choose a shade or color that provides the best smile possible.
During your second visit, your dentist will prepare the tooth surfaces by cleaning them thoroughly and then roughening the surfaces to ensure that the veneers adhere to the teeth. Then a special adhesive is used to attach the veneer to the surface of the teeth.
