A favorite among actors, musicians, and models, porcelain veneers produce a total smile makeover. This wildly popular cosmetic dental enhancement can conceal nearly every flaw possible. From crooked and overlapped teeth to teeth with deep, intrinsic discoloration, porcelain veneers produce a uniform and flawless smile. Your smile says a lot about you and people with attractive smiles tend to have richer social and professional lives. Fortunately, Dr. Salter can improve all aspects of a smile with porcelain veneers.
Porcelain Veneers Create Stunning Smiles
Crafted from high-quality pieces of porcelain, veneers are thin, tooth-shaped coverings that are permanently cemented to the front surfaces of teeth. Porcelain is a very life-like material that matches the shade and luster of biological teeth, allowing for a natural looking yet flawless improvement to one’s smile.
Receiving porcelain veneers is a non-invasive procedure that requires two to three office visits. After determining if veneers are right for your needs, Dr. Salter will take impressions of your teeth so that the size and shape of each veneer can determined to accentuate your facial features and the size of your mouth. Once the specifications are determined, certified dental technicians in a laboratory will make your custom veneers. When the veneers are ready and sent back to our practice, you will return for the bonding process.
Dr. Salter will gently etch the front surfaces of teeth to create a stable surface to place the veneers. Using a special cement-like dental compound, each veneer will be bonded over the corresponding tooth. Before the bonding material dries, Dr. Salter will make any final adjustments necessary to produce a natural and beautiful effect.
Sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics”, patients will leave our office after treatment with a beautiful smile and a surge in self-confidence. Patients will care for their veneers just as they would their natural teeth with daily flossing and proper brushing.
