Porcelain veneers can really transform a smile, making you want to showcase those pearly whites. They’re really popular among celebrities and those that prefer a picture-perfect smile.
So what exactly are veneers? They’re thin pieces of porcelain that are used to create a natural looking tooth. That’s why it’s important to work with a dentist like Dr. Gatgens at Accent Smile Center in Dickson, TN.
You need an experienced dentist who can give you natural-looking results. Porcelain veneers are also stronger and more resilient than your tooth’s natural enamel.
For the most part, porcelain veneers are long lasting options compared to bonding depending on habits and any trauma a person may experience.
They’re custom – made in a dental lab so you can get the veneers that match perfectly with your mouth.
They don’t stain and require no extra maintenance. You brush, floss and do everything else like you would with natural teeth
Are porcelain veneers the right option for you?
Before taking any decision regarding your dental treatment, consult with your dentist to figure out what’s best for you. Porcelain veneers aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution.
Figure out what you’re looking for in cosmetic dentistry and your expectations. Dr. Gatgens and his team of dental assistants will perform a smile analysis since veneers can require your natural tooth enamel be removed, only less than one millimeter.
Porcelain veneers consist of a compilation of thin ceramic layers plus an adhesive layer. By shaving off a bit of the enamel, a dentist makes room for the porcelain veneer to fit within your mouth.
It’s important you work with an experienced dentist like Dickson dentist Dr. Gatgens since a perfect fit is needed to restore all functions from chewing to talking and everything else your mouth is responsible for. Light-sensitive resin is used to create a strong bond between your natural tooth and the porcelain veneer.
However, here at Accent Smile Center we are trained to preform minimally invasive or prepless veneers called Duration Veneers. You may be a candidate for this procedure which can restore your beautiful smile and help you get the smile you have always dreamed of having.
Are Veneers Right for You?
Porcelain veneers are used for various reasons in cosmetic dentistry. If you have a fractured tooth, a chipped tooth, a gap between teeth or even if a tooth’s position has changed, veneers can help you regain a beautiful smile.
Also, for more minor teeth problems such as poor color, poor shape or contour of a tooth can be fixed with porcelain veneers. For some teeth whitening isn’t a success, porcelain might be able to make a big difference in color.
