Veneers by Walzem Family Dental Associates
Your teeth are resilient to wear and tear, but they may lose their aesthetic appeal after years of use and damage. Other factors that impact the appearance of your teeth include your diet, hygiene habits, and congenital traits. You don’t have to live with these imperfections forever, as Walzem Family Dental Associates offers a range of cosmetic treatments to resolve them. Veneers are one of the most well-known and commonly used dental prosthetics available, masking dental problems in as little as two visits.
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin pieces of ceramic that fit over your existing teeth. After we bond them to your teeth with powerful dental cement, they will instantly brighten, straighten, and perfect your smile. Porcelain veneers have many cosmetic advantages, including:
• Concealing stains, chips, and spaces between teeth
• Correcting minor misalignment of teeth
• They look like your natural teeth
• Treatment is virtually undetectable
• Highly resistant to coffee, tea, and even cigarette stains
• Immediate smile transformation
• Individually customized for you
Covering Stains and Restoring Balance
Veneers are one of the most popular and trusted procedures completed in cosmetic dentistry because they can change the way you look and feel about your smile. Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. We place veneers regularly and design each case individually to match the distinctive traits of your smile.
Veneers offer the advantage of cosmetically improving your dental condition, while also conserving a great deal of the healthy, existing structure of your teeth. As a result, our doctors may recommend veneers as an alternative to crowns when moderate treatment is more appropriate to achieve desired results.
The process of getting porcelain veneers is simple and does not significantly impact underlying dental health. Your teeth will be moderately prepared before placement to make room for the additional thickness of the veneer. An impression or mold of your teeth is also taken so that your veneers are fabricated to the specific dimensions of your smile.
At this time, our doctors will work with you to decide on the right color for your veneers. During the placement appointment, your teeth will first be cleansed with special, professional-grade liquids to ensure your veneer bonds properly. Dental bonding cement is used when applying the veneer, which is hardened and set by use of a specialized light.
