If you are unhappy with your smile there are more options than ever for transforming it to the smile of your dreams. There are a number of minimally invasive dental procedures that can lead to dramatic changes in the way your teeth look. One of the most popular and least invasive options is porcelain veneers. Veneers can help you go from having stained and damaged teeth to having white and healthy-looking teeth in a relatively small amount of time. If you want to transform the look of your smile you can read more about what veneers have to offer below. Once you understand what porcelain veneers are and what they can do for you the next question is, ‘What type of dentist do I need to go to get veneers?’
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of material designed to go over the front of your teeth. They are custom made so they fit your teeth and look natural. Veneers are permanently bonded to the front of your teeth and are considered to be very durable. Your dentist can help you get the veneers you need and the results you want in as little as two visits.
What will porcelain veneers do for me?
Porcelain veneers are often thought of as being used to whiten teeth. It is true that you can get maximum whiteness for your teeth with veneers but they can do many other things for your smile. You can use veneers to close spaces between your teeth and add length for a more balanced smile. If you have a chipped or cracked tooth, veneers may be the most effective option for correcting the damage. In some situations veneers can also help teeth appear straighter and allow patients to avoid braces.
What type of dentist do I need to go to for veneers?
A dentist with experience in cosmetic procedures can help you determine if porcelain veneers are the best option for your particular concerns. A dentist with this type of experience will be able to offer you a variety of procedures designed to give you the smile you want. If porcelain veneers do not end up being the best option in your situation you can talk with your dentist about other cosmetic procedures such as porcelain crowns, permanent bridges, and dental implants.
