At the office of Edison Park Smiles, we offer porcelain veneers to help you smile a smile that is natural looking, healthy and beautiful. Veneers are a great option to consider if you are suffering from chipped, misaligned, cracked, discolored, or unevenly spaced teeth.
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin tooth casings custom created to mimic the natural appearance of the enamel of a tooth. They are bonded to the front surface of the teeth to improve the appearance of your smile and create a natural, flawless and bright look.
When you come to our office with a request for improving the look of your teeth, we will first evaluate your oral health and discuss your expectations from the procedure you choose to opt. Once it has been decided that veneers are the treatment of choice, we will begin the procedure of installing veneers. This generally takes two appointments at our dental office. During the first appointment, your tooth is prepared by shaving off a small part of the enamel to allow the veneer to fit. Then, the tooth surface is roughened using an etching solution to allow the veneer to bond well. An impression of the tooth is taken and the desired color shade of the veneer is determined to help it look natural. This information is sent off to a dental laboratory to prepare your restoration and meanwhile, a temporary restoration is placed on your teeth. Once your veneer is ready, the temporary one is removed and the new one is permanently placed on to your tooth.
Porcelain veneers are long-lasting cosmetic solution and with proper care, they can last for up to 10 years. With this cosmetic option, you can enjoy a beautiful smile for many years to come. Call our office to find out more about porcelain veneers or to schedule your consultation.
