Perhaps one of the most versatile tools available in cosmetic dentistry is porcelain veneers. Relatively simple to apply, veneers can make a dramatic difference in your smile without having to use long-term orthodontics or drastic restructuring of the teeth, as for crowns.
Dr. LeSueur and Dr. Dodaro use veneers to address a number of issues, including:
- Severe discoloration
- Gaps between teeth
Porcelain veneers are custom-made to match the natural color of your teeth, and carefully shaped to correct the issues you’ve chosen to have addressed. Dr. LeSueur and Dr. Dodaro remove a very thin layer of enamel from the front of your teeth to accommodate the veneers, then make a mold from which the veneers are constructed. After the custom-made veneers are completed, they’re attached to your teeth with a special bonding agent.
Veneers cover minor chips and cracks in the teeth, making your smile even again. If your teeth are severely discolored and don’t respond to whitening treatments, veneers can also give you a bright, white smile.
Because porcelain veneers are so versatile, they can be used to accomplish “instant orthodontics.” In instant orthodontics, veneers are carefully constructed to disguise misalignment or gaps between the teeth, giving you a perfect smile without the expense and long-term discomfort of traditional orthodontics.
