Have you ever been watching a movie and suddenly wondered why movie stars always seem to have perfect teeth? Many of them actually enhance their smiles with a cosmetic dentistry treatment called porcelain veneers. When it comes to beautifying your smile, few options are as effective and versatile as porcelain veneers in Middleburg Heights. These ultra-thin ceramic shells are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth to correct several smile flaws in one fell swoop, including chips, cracks, stains, gaps, and misshapen teeth. Want to find out whether veneers are just the thing your smile needs to truly shine? Call us at Kirlough Family Dentistry today to schedule a consultation!
Porcelain veneers are made from a material that closely resembles that of metal-free dental crowns. The main difference is that instead of covering up the entire tooth, veneers simply conceal the front-facing portion. As a result, veneers offer many advantages, including:
The first step in getting veneers is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kirlough. He can evaluate your mouth and determine whether you’re a good candidate for porcelain veneers. Once we decide that veneers are right for you, we can begin the treatment process.
Your cosmetic dentist in Middleburg Heights will remove a thin sliver of enamel from your affected teeth. This will ensure your veneers are not bulky and instead lay flat against your teeth. Next, we take impressions and place temporary veneers to let you get used to the way your new smile will look and feel. When the dental lab has finished crafting your personalized veneers a few weeks later, you’ll return to our office and we’ll bond them into place, instantly giving you the smile of your dreams.
Like most other dental restorations, the lifespan of your veneers will depend on your dedication to maintaining them. Fortunately, caring for them involves basically the same things you should already be doing to keep your pearly whites healthy. Make sure to brush and floss daily. Additionally, come see us for a checkup and cleaning regularly so that we can ensure your veneers and underlying teeth stay in good condition.
