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. If you visit Accent Smile Center in Dickson, TN, dentist Dr. Gatgens and his team of dental assistants will perform a smile analysis, since porcelain veneers can require your natural tooth enamel be removed, only less than 1 millimeter.
Porcelain veneers consists 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.
