A smile that makes you feel confident about how you look is important and can really make a difference in your day-to-day life. Being able to smile and laugh without worrying about what others think opens doors to expressing yourself fully.
Unfortunately, teeth may wear prematurely due to grinding or a misaligned bite. Other culprits that affect the appearance of your smile including stains from smoking, food, and drinks as well as certain medications. Veneers can also close gaps between teeth without the need for braces.
Porcelain veneers are a single treatment method that can address numerous cosmetic concerns at once.
Beautiful Smiles Made Easy with Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that cover the front of your teeth. Porcelain has a natural appearance with a tooth-like translucency and wide variety of shading options, so that your teeth look natural – only better! Porcelain veneers can solve a number of cosmetic dental problems in just a few visits.
Porcelain veneers can give your teeth a uniform appearance and lengthen a worn smile. Dr. Dastrup will design each restoration individually, giving you results that look beautiful and feel completely comfortable.
What to Expect with Porcelain Veneer Treatment
Every great smile begins with meticulous design. Dr. Dastrup will take impressions of your teeth and design veneers that fit well and feel comfortable when you chew. He will have a discussion with you about what type of smile you admire and the color you would like to see, and then he'll take it from there.
If you want a whiter smile, Dr. Dastrup may recommend teeth whitening before beginning so that your veneers match your natural teeth once treatment is complete. Healthy gums and teeth free from decay are also necessary parts of the treatment process. Dr. Dastrup will help you address any underlying conditions before placing your final restorations so that you experience the best results.
Polishing away some of your natural tooth structure makes room for your veneers so they never look bulky or fake. This means that veneers are a lifelong commitment, but one that you will truly appreciate! Our patients often tell us that they wish they had treatment sooner because their new smiles truly improve their lives.
Caring for Porcelain Veneers
We use permanent dental cement to seal your veneers to your natural tooth structure. Maintaining healthy gums with regular dental cleanings, x-rays, and exams is part of taking care of your smile.
Teeth with veneers can still develop decay, so good home habits are a must. The veneers are durable, but you should avoid biting into hard substances and treat your veneers with the same care you use for your natural teeth.
