Let Us Give You a Smile You’re Proud Of
It’s easy to feel embarrassed by your teeth if you don’t like how they look. Cracked, discolored, and uneven teeth can make you feel self-conscious and uncomfortable showing off your smile. Fortunately, porcelain veneers provide an easy, painless solution.
Dr. Gottlieb, our cosmetic dentist, and our team at Franklinville Dental are happy to provide you with expert dental care to make you smile from ear to ear.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin, durable shells designed to elevate the beauty of your smile. Each veneer is fully customized to match the shape and color of your teeth.
This custom cosmetic treatment can completely transform your smile. They’re also an excellent alternative to dental crowns, as porcelain veneers provide solutions to many dental conditions.
Reasons for Porcelain Veneers
While porcelain veneers are an excellent treatment for enhancing the beauty of your smile, there are a variety of other reasons to receive veneers. At Franklinville Dental, our patients choose porcelain veneers to help fix the following dental issues:
- Crooked teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Misaligned, uneven teeth
- Teeth that are too small or too large
- Severely discolored, yellow, or stained teeth
- Teeth that are too small or large
- Unwanted or uneven spacing between teeth
- Worn or chipped teeth
How Are Porcelain Veneers Placed?
The porcelain veneer process usually requires two visits to our Franklinville Dental office. The procedure is simple and virtually pain-free thanks to a safe, reliable anesthetic. At your first appointment, our team at Franklinville Dental will prepare the teeth by buffing and shaping the surface. This is to create room for the veneer to rest in line with your natural teeth. A mold, or impression, of the teeth will be made and a shade (color) is then chosen by you and your dentist.
At your second visit, our team will cleanse your teeth to ensure a durable bond. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light is used to harden and set the bond.
You’ll receive detailed care instructions for maintaining your dental veneers. As with most dental restorations, veneers are not completely permanent and may someday need replacement. However, they are very durable and will give you a beautiful smile that lasts for years to come. By brushing and flossing daily and scheduling regular dental checkups, you can support the long lifespan of your new veneers.
What Are Lumineers?
Lumineers are a thinner style of veneer that, in most cases, requires no buffing or removal of tooth enamel. Since Lumineers are so thin, Dr. Gottlieb won’t have to remove any of your healthy, natural tooth enamel. Lumineers also eliminate the need for drilling, shots, or temporary acrylics, and can be reversible.
Frequently Asked Questions
No, receiving porcelain veneers is a virtually painless process! Our dentist in Franklinville administers a local anesthetic before prepping your teeth and placing your veneers.
You may feel some mild soreness when your anesthetic wears off after your procedure. However, any discomfort should dissipate within a few hours and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.
With proper maintenance and care, porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years before needing to be replaced. Taking care of your new smile is as easy as brushing and flossing twice a day.
