Are you looking for a dental treatment that gives you a more beautiful yet natural smile? Do you wish to improve your smile but desire results that don’t broadcast the dental work to everyone around you?
Porcelain Veneers – The Secret to a Flawless Smile
Then ask your dentist to discuss the secret behind some of the world’s most well-known smiles: porcelain veneers. They are handcrafted, ultra-thin shells that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth, transforming discoloured or fractured teeth into a natural, uniform look.
Porcelain veneers are the secret behind the flawless smiles of some of the world’s most photographed people, such as George Clooney and Tom Cruise. It’s easy to see why stars choose this treatment—porcelain veneers dramatically improve the smile yet create natural and age-appropriate results that look great even in high definition.
While celebrities tend to go for full, multiple-veneer makeovers, amazing aesthetic improvements can be achieved with just a couple veneers. In a relatively simple procedure, the veneers are bonded to the front surface of your teeth to cover any small imperfections, such as cracks, gaps and stains.
Fitted precisely to the front surfaces or your teeth, porcelain veneers make your smile look whiter, straighter and more evenly coloured.
Thanks to the unique qualities of porcelain, the veneers offer a translucency that mimics the light absorption of natural teeth. Furthermore, because the veneers are matched with your existing tooth colour and shape, they look exactly like real teeth, only more uniform in appearance.
Why Choose Porcelain Veneers
There are several reasons why porcelain veneers are the treatment of choice for the most discerning patients. When the underlying tooth is strong and healthy, a porcelain veneer offers a great alternative for a crown, which requires more altering of the existing tooth. Also, unlike natural teeth, porcelain veneers resist coffee, tea and cigarette smoke stains. And with a life span of 10-30 years, they are more durable than composite veneers.
Porcelain veneers are completed in just two appointments: in the first appointment the teeth are prepared and an impression is taken using polyvinyl siloxane, an extremely accurate material that will ensure the veneer model to be built of your teeth is a clinical replica. In the second appointment the veneers are bonded precisely to your teeth, creating a perfectly natural effect.
If you want to transform your smile with a combination of teeth whitening and veneers, your teeth will first be whitened and then the new porcelain veneers are matched to your new, brighter smile.
While you may not have the star power of George Clooney or Tom Cruise, porcelain veneers can help you achieve a smile that’s just as picture perfect. Call Dr Luke Cronin and his friendly staff today to learn more.
