A few flaws in your smile can ruin your self-esteem and take a toll on your social life. At New Albany Implants, we see patients every day who stress over one crooked tooth, gaps in their teeth or teeth with chips or cracks. Without the proper care, those tiny imperfections can ruin your self-image.
We have solutions that fix minor flaws in your smile in one to two visits. Dr. Receveur is a highly recommended New Albany dentist who has had great success with cosmetic dentistry procedures like veneers for years.
Dr. Receveur uses porcelain veneers as a form of instant orthodontics. Many patients who are candidates for veneers often mistakenly believe they need full orthodontic treatment. They assume they are due for two years or more years of treatment to fix the problem. That’s simply not always the case. If you have chips, cracks, gaps or alignment issues, don’t rule out porcelain veneers. You may be a candidate and not even know it.
Porcelain veneers are natural-looking and can be placed through a minimally invasive procedure. We place veneers under local anesthesia, but the process is no more uncomfortable than getting a cavity filled. Once part of the enamel is removed, a thin layer of porcelain is bonded to your healthy tooth or teeth. The biggest disadvantage of permanent veneers is the removal of your enamel — which is the hardest substance in your body and cannot be replaced. But if you suffer from weak enamel – either because of genetics or wear and tear – a porcelain veneer can strengthen your tooth and prevent possible future cracks or breaks.
We match the color of the porcelain to your teeth in order to give your smile a natural look. If you’re looking for a cosmetic overhaul, consider crowns and teeth-whitening in addition to your porcelain veneers. Porcelain is a very strong material and does not stain like your enamel.
Dr. Receveur has transformed thousands of smiles and can give you the smile of your dreams. Call us today to learn more about our porcelain veneers.
