While your smile may be healthy, issues with the way you look can give you an interest in treatment options capable of addressing cosmetic concerns. With the right procedure, we can take on many different issues that you might want to resolve. Are you bothered by dental discoloration? Self-conscious because your teeth are misshapen or damaged? Bothered by a gap between two teeth? With porcelain veneers, your Columbia, TN dentist's office can take on any of these concerns. In fact, we can actually help you put many different concerns behind you after just a single procedure!
How Can Veneers Help You?
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made restorations that are used in cosmetic services. They cover the front surfaces of teeth completely in order to hide different esthetic flaws that can make a person self-conscious. Their placement can address discoloration, including forms of discoloration that are difficult to treat with a traditional teeth whitening procedure. They can also change the shape and size of teeth, and even hide spacing concerns. The material used to construct them is strong enough to maintain its shape and general appearance for many years, and to withstand persistent biting and chewing pressures.
Planning Your Procedure With Porcelain Veneers
Two appointments are needed to complete treatment with porcelain veneers. When you see your dentist for your first treatment, you will go through the preparatory work required for your care. That will mean having your teeth carefully measured, and also having preparatory work done to make space for your restorations. The information collected here will ensure that we can receive veneers that fit properly, look natural, and provide the right improvements. At your follow-up appointment, you will receive your restorations, which your dentist permanently bonds in place to make desired changes to your smile.
Why Some Patient Should Receive Crowns Instead Of Veneers
While veneers are strong enough to hold up against many years of biting and chewing, they may not be appropriate for every treatment. If you are not able to confidently bite and chew with a tooth, or if there is damage that calls for more than just superficial treatment, we can place a dental crown instead of a veneer. We can still make your desired cosmetic changes, as crowns can actually imitate the color, shape, and general look of healthy, attractive teeth.
