Smiles brighten the world around us, but sometimes our teeth look a little worse for wear. They do work hard after all. Chips, cracks, and gaps can leave you thinking twice before beaming your beautiful smile for everyone to see. Porcelain veneers can give you your smile back. They help solve multiple cosmetic issues at once. At Dr. Marshall S Skopp DMD, we understand the value of your smile and will craft the perfect porcelain veneers to help you light up a room wherever you go.
Benefits of getting porcelain veneers
You must have good oral health to get porcelain veneers. Dr. Marshall S Skopp will do a thorough dental inspection beforehand to ensure you are a candidate for the procedure. Together, you will craft a plan to meet your needs, including rectifying oral health issues if any are present. Using a single procedure if your teeth are in good health can solve these common concerns:
- Chips and cracks
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Misshapen or undersized teeth
- Large gaps
- Stains that won’t come off with bleaching
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that dentists fit onto the surface of your teeth to resemble perfect enamel. You can do a single tooth or your entire set to give you a radiant smile that lasts through the years. Unlike other materials used in the veneer-making process, porcelain helps preserve much of your tooth’s original structure because it can be made so thin. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that gives you a beautiful smile.
The procedure starts with a thorough cleaning of the teeth. Then, your dental professional removes a small amount of enamel in an etching process so that the veneers adhere to your teeth. Using digital impressions, they create a custom design to meet your smile requirements. It takes a few weeks to make your veneers, but Dr. Marshall S Skopp will attach temporary ones while you wait. You will start feeling excited about the smile that awaits you.
At your next appointment, the porcelain veneers are attached, and your smile is good to go. They can last for up to 10 years with proper aftercare. Use dental products that aren’t abrasive to prevent damage. Avoid using your teeth to do things like open packets or chew hard candy. Visit your dentist at least twice a year for a regular checkup and thorough cleaning.
