Rejuvenate Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
Has Mother Nature given you a smile that you can't quite love? Have you chipped a tooth or accumulated stubborn stains from your morning coffee? Don't worry. You can rejuvenate your smile with the help of porcelain veneers from Dr. Daniel Morrison, your cosmetic dentist here at Gillette Dental. Dr. Morrison excels at smile makeovers of all kinds, and beautiful veneers are one of his favorite treatments—read on to learn why!
What's a flaw or two?
The answer is nothing—unless that defect is right in the front of your mouth. Stains, chips, cracks, gaps, crowding, and more may not be unhealthy, but they sure can impact your self-esteem.
This is why your Gillette cosmetic dentist offers a wide array of treatments to restore beauty and vitality to damaged smiles. Porcelain veneers, thin tooth-shaped laminates made from high-grade ceramic, both strengthen and beautify. Once installed over the front side of your teeth, you'll know your smile will sparkle and last indefinitely!
The veneer treatment
It begins with a complete oral evaluation, including X-rays, oral impressions, and photos. When arriving to our Gillette office, come prepared to tell Dr. Morrison the changes you wish to see—if porcelain veneers can accomplish your goals, expect two to three appointments to complete the process.
Most veneer treatments involve the removal of a thin portion of enamel from the front of each tooth. This resurfacing allows the veneers to fit properly and look natural. After the reduction procedure, you'll wear temporary veneers while the dental lab creates their permanent counterparts.
When you return to the office for veneer placement, your dentist will remove your temporaries and bond the new veneers in place. Amazingly, he can adjust the shade and thickness of the cement to achieve a strong bond and a highly realistic appearance.
Caring for veneers
Twice daily brushing and once a day flossing are must-haves. Also, avoid dark foods and beverages. While these won't stain your veneers, according to Dear Doctor, they will continue to darken your natural teeth, creating a noticeable difference in color. Finally, if you grind or clench your teeth, ask about a bite guard to cushion your new veneers.
With proper care, your veneers could last for up to ten years!
