Porcelain Veneers: Natural and Attractive

Porcelain Veneers: Natural and Attractive

Posted April 26, 2014 by Wager-Evans Dental

Smile Gal Changing a smile you’re unhappy with is not a shallow pursuit. We all deserve to feel comfortable and confident with the way we look. There are elements of our appearance that might not be important to anyone but you. However, let’s be honest about smiles. They definitely make an impression on others. If you feel like your smile needs an entire makeover which will amount to too much cost and time, consider porcelain veneers. Reno cosmetic dentists, Dr. William Wager and Dr. Brian Evans have improved a great many smiles with the relatively simple cosmetic procedure of veneers.

Surprisingly Fast and Easy

How long do you think veneers take? Believe it or not, they are usually done in as little as two dental visits. Porcelain veneers offer some of the most astounding cosmetic results available. Porcelain veneers achieve a realistic translucence which so closely resembles natural teeth, you’ll be amazed. At one point in time, veneers appeared bulky and fake, but today’s preparation techniques and materials mean that it is very difficult to distinguish them from natural teeth. Any number of smile deficiencies are easily covered over by dental veneers, provided your teeth and gums are in a healthy state.

Porcelain Veneer Preparation and Procedure

Preparing your teeth for porcelain veneers requires removal of small amounts of tooth enamel to ensure that the veneers bond properly with your smile and don’t add too much bulk. Molds and measurements of your teeth are sent to an off-site lab for fabrication of customized, ultra-thin ceramic discs. By the time you return for your second visit, you are ready to have the veneers bonded permanently in place with dental grade adhesive. In between appointments, Dr. Wager or Dr. Evans may fit you with temporary veneers while your custom set is manufactured. Veneers can last for 20 years or more if you care for them with proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits.
