There are many procedures to spruce up a smile, from teeth whitening to braces. If the issues you have with your smile are limited to one or a few teeth, or just the teeth seen in your smile, there is a wonderful procedure Carrington Family Dental is excited to share with you. It’s dental veneers.
Dental veneers, also called porcelain veneers, are thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the front and sometimes the side of your teeth. They are an instant fix for many smile problems.
- If you have teeth that are chipped, cracked, broken or otherwise damaged, porcelain veneers are an excellent treatment.
- If you have teeth that are too small, misshapen or have a gap between them, dental veneers can give you a lovely smile.
- If you’d like to brighten all the teeth in your smile, you can have dental veneers placed on all of those teeth in a shade that is lighter than your original teeth for a lighter, brighter smile.
- If you only have one or a few dental veneers placed, they will be custom made at the lab to be the right color, shade, shape and size to fit your smile perfectly. The porcelain veneers will not look like “odd” teeth that don’t match.
There are two types of dental veneers we offer at Carrington Family Dental: traditional dental veneers and prepless veneers.
In the process for traditional dental veneers the dentist removes the small outer layer of enamel off of your teeth to help the porcelain veneers bond to the teeth.
Prepless veneers are a little different. Prepless veneers have no real preparation before the dentist places the porcelain veneers. If you choose to have the prepless veneers removed, your teeth are still in their original state, undamaged. For this reason, some people prefer prepless veneers. However, there are some positives and negatives with prepless veneers and traditional dental veneers, so our well-trained team can partner with you to make the right choice.
Whatever dental veneers choice you make, traditional porcelain veneers or prepless veneers, we are confident that you will love your new smile. We are ready to place traditional or prepless veneers when you are ready to have a glowing, uniform, awesome smile! Call today!
