Are you embarrassed about your smile? Our Wisdom Dental dentists can make cosmetic enhancements with dental veneers made of strong, wafer-thin porcelain. In many cases, this is a preferred smile makeover treatment, because the treatment is conservative and relatively fast. Dental veneers make your teeth stronger and can last more than a decade when treatment is performed by an expert.
Dr. Wisdom Akpaka and Dr. Mariel Petruk offer completely personalized treatment that will meet your goals of a healthy, beautiful smile. They will be delighted to explore with you which type of treatment would be optimal. This may be veneers on your front teeth, teeth whitening of all teeth prior to veneer placement on some teeth, and maybe additional treatments to give you the healthy, brilliant smile you desire.
Your Wisdom Dental dentist will consider the right shape for the porcelain shells and choose a color shade that is a near-perfect match to your nearby teeth. Before dental veneers are bonded to your teeth, your dentist will need to remove a small amount of tooth enamel and use very gentle methods to prepare each tooth. Therefore, you should feel very little during this preparatory appointment.
After the thin layer of enamel is removed, we will take dental impressions and make dental models. Our partner lab will use these models to ensure a lifelike look and fit for your veneers. While the lab technicians are fabricating them out of porcelain, your dentist may provide temporary veneers to prevent tooth sensitivity. When your custom veneers have been sent back to our office, they will be bonded to your teeth. Your dentist will make sure they do not interfere with your natural bite and make any needed adjustments at this time.
This entirely gentle treatment can be accomplished in two appointments with only two weeks between the appointments in most cases. You will brush and floss your teeth like normal. Because porcelain does not stain, your veneers will remain the same color.
The first step is to have Dr. Wisdom or Dr. Petruk examine your oral health and smile. At this time, you will talk about your smile makeover objectives. Porcelain veneers could be right for you if you have cracks, chips, or discolored teeth that bleaching will not correct. Veneers may be right for you if you have gaps between your teeth or have irregularly shaped teeth. In some cases, our dentists can even place veneers to conceal minor to moderate misalignment of your teeth. Find out if porcelain dental veneers are a good solution for you.
