Create Your New Smile
Some patients find themselves concerned that a single cosmetic treatment, such as teeth whitening or bonding, will not address all of their esthetic issues. We offer porcelain veneers at Oasis Family Dental to provide patients with a comprehensive smile transformation that addresses a variety of problems.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
A porcelain veneer is a very thin ceramic shell that fits permanently over the visible portion of your tooth. You may select a single veneer or multiple veneers, though many patients achieve a smile makeover by opting for a full set for optimal improvement. A master ceramicist will custom-craft your veneers, using translucent porcelain layers to mimic the appearance of your natural teeth.
What Can I Expect From This Treatment?
You will visit your dentist to discuss how veneers will work for your smile, while discussing the changes you wish to make. You may address a variety of concerns, including:
- Tooth shape
- Tooth size and length
- Improving mild misalignment
- Filling spaces between teeth
- Camouflaging chips and cracks
When you come in for us to receive your veneers, your dentist may first need to prepare your teeth, unless your imperfections are extremely minor. During prep, your dentist will remove a minimal portion of your tooth’s enamel – its outermost layer – to make room. We will then permanently bond the veneers to your teeth.
Am I A Good Candidate?
We encourage patients to consider veneers if individual cosmetic services will not suffice. Porcelain veneers are appropriate for natural teeth, but they will not work for patients who wish to improve the appearance of prosthetics like dental crowns. In that case, your dentist will discuss alternative restorative solutions to improve your smile.
