A smile is often the first thing people notice about us, and it can have a significant impact on our self-esteem and confidence. If you’re unhappy with your smile, a smile makeover with porcelain veneers may be the solution you’re looking for.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are custom-made to fit over the front of your teeth. They can be used to correct a variety of cosmetic issues, including stained or discolored teeth, chipped or broken teeth, gaps between teeth, and misshapen or uneven teeth.
The process of getting porcelain veneers typically involves two or three visits to your dentist. During the first visit, your dentist will examine your teeth and determine if porcelain veneers are the right option for you. If so, they will take impressions of your teeth and send them to a dental laboratory, where your veneers will be custom-made.
On your second visit, your dentist will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth. This will create space for the veneers and ensure a proper fit. Your dentist will then place temporary veneers on your teeth to protect them while your permanent veneers are being made.
Once your permanent veneers are ready, you’ll return to your dentist for the final fitting. Your dentist will carefully place the veneers on your teeth and make any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable and natural-looking fit.
With proper care, porcelain veneers can last for many years, making them a long-term investment in your smile and self-confidence.
