Do you see imperfections in your smile that bother you every time you look in the mirror? It can be a challenge to live with cosmetic flaws that mar your appearance and make you feel self-conscious.
At Conestee Family Dental, we offer solutions for these types of frustrating cosmetic dental problems. Today, we are fortunate to have access to a wide variety of dental materials and techniques that can help us correct just about any esthetic problem you’re facing.
One treatment that our patients find especially effective is beautiful, durable porcelain veneers.
How Can Veneers Help Me?
A veneer is a wafer-thin shell of porcelain that we bond securely to your teeth to create a new, blemish-free surface. Since veneers conceal your tooth, we can use them to address many typical cosmetic concerns:
- Improve size, shape, and color of teeth
- Close uneven spaces and large gaps between teeth
- Conceal chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Correct slight tooth misalignment
These are common problems that can take a toll on your self-confidence. Veneers offer the perfect solution because they can be used to conceal flaws on just one tooth or on several teeth.
What Is the Process for Getting Veneers?
We will begin treatment by discussing what you dislike about your smile and your goals for improving your appearance. Taking our time during this step is crucial because understanding what’s important to you allows us to deliver results that exceed your expectations.
Next, we remove a thin layer of dental enamel from your teeth. This allows space so the veneer can fit naturally and conform to surrounding teeth. Impressions are then taken of the prepared teeth that will be used to create your customized veneer.
Our lab produces a thorough and detailed set of veneers that will match your teeth’s natural appearance. Depending on the number of teeth we are treating, the process takes about five to ten days.
When your veneers are ready, we will have you return to our Greenville dental office for placement. We will check the veneers for perfect fit and appearance, then bond them securely to the surface of your teeth.
Veneers designed at Conestee Family Dental are highly durable and can remain in place for as long as 20 years with proper care. They don’t require any specialized care, but they are prone to chipping when biting down on hard foods like nuts so common sense and caution are a must.
Is It Time to Refresh Your Smile?
Veneers are one of the most effective ways to quickly transform your smile and dramatically change your appearance. However, after examining your teeth, we may suggest another cosmetic treatment that may be more appropriate. Whichever solution you and your dentist decide on, you can be sure you will always receive outstanding results at our Greenville, SC dental office.
