When you look in the mirror, are you seeing a flawless smile, or do you see damage, discoloration, and flaws? The smile you see in the mirror should reflect who you are to those around you and help you feel confident in every interaction. Many patients think that achieving a beautiful smile has to be difficult, costly, and time consuming. Luckily for patients of Dream Dental in Woodstock, we offer porcelain veneers. This simple cosmetic solution can transform flawed teeth into gorgeous smiles in just two visits to our office. If you want to learn more about porcelain veneers or any of our other treatment options, call our team to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation with us today. We’ll be happy to help you create your healthiest and most beautiful smiles.
Veneers are thin sheaths of porcelain that affix to the front facing surfaces of teeth to conceal chips, cracks, stains, and other imperfections in the smile. Once in place, the veneers can reshape even the most flawed smiles.
No cosmetic treatment is right for every patient. Before we begin any dental treatment, we will review your options and help you find the ideal solution to create the smile of your dreams. We may recommend porcelain veneers in a number of situations, including:
Veneers are placed over the course of two dental treatment appointments. During your first visit, we will carefully prepare your smile for veneer placement. We begin by removing a small amount of surface tooth enamel to allow the porcelain veneers to fit into your natural smile line. Then, dental impressions are captured that will be used by our lab to craft your porcelain veneers. Before you leave the office, we’ll place temporary veneers to protect the prepared teeth. Once we receive the final set of veneers from our lab, you will return to exchange the temporary for custom crafted porcelain veneers, and you will leave the office with a flawless smile.
With proper care, your porcelain veneers can last ten years or longer. To maximize the life of your veneers, you should brush teeth twice a day and floss at least once each day. Using the right products is key to maintaining your new veneers. Soft and ultra soft bristled toothbrushes and minimally abrasive toothpaste will help you avoid wear to your veneers and maintain your new smile for as long as possible. You may also want to use a waxed floss to avoid pulling around the edges of your veneers.
