If you want a smile makeover, porcelain veneers are an ideal choice. High-quality and designed to be a permanent cosmetic restoration, veneers can give you the beautiful smile you’re looking for. Dr. Uttma Dham of Westside Dental Center discusses how porcelain veneers are used for cosmetic dentistry in Plantation, FL.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin layers of dental ceramic that fit like a shell over the outside of your teeth. They fit snugly over both the front and sides of your teeth, covering any cosmetic issues that you don’t want to be seen. The material they’re made out of is designed to look and feel like the surface of your natural tooth.
What Can Porcelain Veneers Fix?
Veneers can be used to fix a whole host of cosmetic issues, as well as some restorative ones. Porcelain veneers can be used for the following dental issues:
- Discolored teeth
- Chipped, broken, and cracked teeth
- Tooth wear
- Gaps between the teeth
- Misaligned or misshapen teeth
All of these problems are things that can impact your confidence in your smile. Porcelain veneers can help you get that back again.
The Porcelain Veneer Process
All of our cosmetic dental procedures start with a cosmetic consultation with Dr. Dham. She’ll discuss with you how the procedure will go and exactly what your goals are. At your next dental visit, you’ll start the procedure. A small amount of your enamel is removed to make room for your veneers and to ensure they bond as well as possible.
Using advanced technology, Dr. Dham will take images of your teeth to make 3D molds for your custom dental veneers. You’ll receive a temporary set of veneers while yours are being made in the lab. Once yours are ready, Dr. Dham will make sure they fit correctly and achieve the effect you wanted. When you’re happy with the result, they’ll be permanently bonded to your teeth, giving you your smile makeover!
