Veneers are thin shells that are bonded to the front of teeth to conceal a wide range of aesthetic issues, including chips, cracks, and blemishes. In some cases, veneers can even be used to hide minor tooth misalignment or a small gap in a smile. However, it is important to note that veneers are not intended to correct overall bite imbalance or severely crooked teeth. When you choose our practice for a veneers treatment, your restorations will be custom crafted from dental-grade porcelain, which is both highly durable and extremely lifelike.
Receiving veneers is a two-step process. During your first appointment, we will prepare your teeth for veneers placement by removing a small layer of enamel. This step is performed in order to ensure proper alignment between your veneers and surrounding teeth for a natural-looking result. Next, we will take detailed impressions of the reshaped teeth, which will be sent to an advanced dental laboratory. Technicians at the lab will use the impressions to custom craft your veneers from porcelain, matching them to the shade of surrounding teeth so that they will blend flawlessly with your smile. We can provide a temporary restoration for you to wear while your final veneers are being created.
After we receive your veneers from the lab, you will return to our practice. Dr. Helton will first ensure a proper fit before lightly etching the front of your teeth to create an ideal bonding surface. He will then attach the veneers securely in place, instantly enhancing the appearance of your smile. With proper care, your veneers can last for a decade or longer.
Veneers offer patients an effective way to enhance their smiles. However, we recognize that this treatment is not right for everyone. At many other practices, dentists often recommend veneers for inappropriate cases, creating unrealistic expectations for patients and ultimately leaving them disappointed with the results. To determine if veneers can best achieve your goals, you will hold a personal consultation with Dr. Helton before undergoing treatment. During this visit, he will examine your smile and seek to diagnose the underlying cause of your cosmetic issues. With this conservative approach, Dr. Helton can help protect your oral health and better ensure your complete satisfaction.
Dr. Helton has been using cosmetic dentistry to help patients achieve gorgeous smiles for more than a decade. To evaluate your candidacy for porcelain veneers, schedule a consultation with Dr. Helton today. We also offer procedures such as dental bonding, which is a cost-effective and non-invasive alternative to veneers.
