Do you wish you could change the appearance of your teeth so that you could feel confident and let your personality shine? You’re not alone. When you have a beautiful smile you’re more apt to share laughter and overall, you feel more youthful and happy. And when you’re smiling, people take notice and smile right back.
Porcelain veneers are custom-designed, thin wafers of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your existing teeth. They address common cosmetic concerns such as cracks, chips, stains, gaps, and even misaligned teeth. Porcelain veneers are color matched to blend in with the surrounding teeth to give you a natural-looking, beautiful result. It only takes a couple of visits — over the course of a few weeks — to achieve the smile you have always dreamed of.
The Art of Porcelain Veneers
Dr. Hylan would be happy to see you for a complimentary consultation to discuss whether or not porcelain veneers are right for you. During that appointment, they will answer any questions you might have and show you before and after pictures of other patients who have had their smiles transformed with porcelain veneers.
Much like an artist, we place an emphasis on creating a smile design that is just right for you. Part of that process is understanding your expectations and from there, determining the best size, shape and color for your veneers. At your first appointment, Dr. Hylan will prepare your teeth for the veneers and take an impression. Then, he’ll work closely with the lab technician to create a wax-up model that will be used to make a temporary veneers that you can wear until your porcelain veneers are ready. Think of it like “test-driving” your new smile.
Before permanently bonding your porcelain veneers at the next appointment, it is important that you absolutely love your smile. If the veneers do not meet your expectations, we will return them to the lab and make any adjustments necessary until you are completely satisfied.
With proper dental hygiene and care, porcelain veneers can last for many years. If you are ready to make a smile transformation, call our office today or request an appointment online.
