Achieving Smile Makeover With Dental Veneers

Achieving Smile Makeover With Dental Veneers Patients obviously want a better smile, sometimes the teeth have been worn down from years of grinding and clenching.
Porcelain veneers can be used along with porcelain rejuvenations to fix the smile and help stabilize bite. In the "before" pictures, one will often see patients with "shorter" teeth that are stained, yellowed, and
broken down. There are often uneven edges, crookedness, and an uneven smile noticeable. Most patients do not want to wear braces as an adult, especially not for one to two years.
Veneers can restore teeth suffering from:
· Stains or discoloration caused by caffeine, tobacco, or age
· Worn-down or chipped teeth
· Unwanted gaps and spaces between teeth
· Damage due to injury or root canal procedure
The implants are made of very thin shells of porcelain that are approximately the thickness of a fingernail. It can be crafted artistically to replicate the natural look, translucency, shape, and tooth function. They tend to hold up really well over time. The veneers are attached to the tooth with dental bonding, and at times a small part of the normal tooth enamel is shaved down a bit so the veneer fits in perfectly. The thickness is about one half a millimeter.
Not all dentists are trained in veneers. It is the ones who are trained in cosmetic dentistry procedures well who should be sought after for your new smile creation. Typically once the design is selected, a wax model is created along with a set of provisionals.
After that, initial tooth preparation is accomplished along with an impression of one's teeth. This goes to a lab for preparation of the final implants, and during this time the provisionals may be worn.
More recent technology is coming into existence that is allowing dentists to be able to place the veneers in a one stage setting. This involves 3D pre-procedure preparation using digital imagery such as with CEREC to create the implants.
The "after" photos will typically show a glistening, white, smile with even teeth that are straighter. The "flow" to the lip is often noticeably smoother with teeth that appear longer.
Porcelain veneers are not covered by insurance, so may need to be financed. Options include CareCredit, Chase Health Advance, and potentially the dentist's office has a financing plan.
The first thing someone sees is one's smile. Unless that person is embarrassed about it and hides it, which can inhibit confidence and self esteem. The latest technology with veneers is amazing and extremely aesthetic.
