Porcelain Veneers in Summerville, SC
There’s a saying that a smile is the shortest distance between two people. Do you easily share your smile with others, or do dental imperfections make you want to fade into the background in social situations?
Everyone’s smile is inherently beautiful, but many of us have something about ours that we’d like to change. It may be a tiny chip that only you notice or severely stained teeth that are obvious to others and ruin your confidence. Today, thanks to advances in dental technology and materials, we can offer you the option of beautiful, natural-looking porcelain veneers.
Choosing Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the upper and, in some cases, lower teeth. Many people choose veneers because they're discreet, versatile, and designed to enhance your smile.
When you choose treatment with veneers, you are choosing to eliminate the embarrassment you experience when dealing with teeth that are crooked, discolored, or have uneven spaces between them. Customized porcelain veneers conceal these imperfections and more so you can go back to smiling with confidence.
Porcelain veneers are used to address some common cosmetic problems since they can:
- Repair chipped, decayed, or worn teeth
- Lengthen or reshape teeth
- Close spaces between teeth
- Disguise misaligned teeth
- Whiten and brighten your smile
How Porcelain Veneers Work
Whenever we think about making cosmetic improvements, we start with a smile consultation. We’ll use this time to talk to you about your concerns and learn what it is you’d like to change and how you want us to help. Our doctors will evaluate your needs, discuss what is possible, and work with you to develop a treatment plan that will help you achieve your goal.
If we decide that veneers are the best solution for you, we will remove a very thin layer of dental enamel to make room for your veneer to fit perfectly. Next, we take impressions of your teeth that will be used to prepare both your temporary and permanent veneers. Then we send the information to a specialized lab where a skilled technician custom crafts your new veneers to our precise specifications.
While you're waiting for your new veneers, you have the opportunity to decide if we need to make any adjustments to provide you with results that exceed your expectations!
In a few short weeks, you will return to our office for placement of your finished veneers. We want you to be delighted with the results and will make adjustments to the veneers as necessary. Once we’re both satisfied with the look and fit of your veneers, we’ll bond them securely to the surface of your teeth.
One of the reasons so many people choose veneers is that they closely mimic the appearance of natural dental enamel. Your veneers will blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, and no one will ever suspect that those beautiful teeth aren’t your own.
