Porcelain Veneers – The Foundation of a Smile Makeover
The buzz words “Smile Makeover” have been circulating social media causing millions of Americans to consider cosmetic dentistry. Popular reality television and talk television shows have given the word “makeover” an indelible vision in people’s minds of dramatic differences between “Before” and “After.” But what does that really mean when talking about smiles? Drs. Ken and Marnie Collins offer a variety of dental aesthetic services to help patients achieve the smile of their dreams.
The greatest tool in the cosmetic dentist’s arsenal for effecting a dramatic change is the porcelain veneer. Porcelain veneers have the look and strength of normal teeth and can be used to fix a variety of problems: teeth that are chipped, cracked, teeth that are uneven in length, slight gaps in between teeth. Porcelain veneers are designed based on a 3D digital model of your mouth and milled and perfected by master craftsmen who specialize in giving them the appearance of real teeth.
Each veneer is individually fitted to a specific tooth and cemented in place providing the same protection as fillings and crowns. When fitted and cared for properly, veneers can prevent the further deterioration of dental caries and other damage. They provide a straight, aesthetically pleasing stain resistant smile.
