Do you have chips, cracks, stains or discoloration, gaps or misshapen teeth that you would like to fix? Or maybe you have all of the above. If that’s the case, there is one treatment that can correct all of these issues: Veneers.
Porcelain veneers are a versatile treatment method that allows our professional staff to correct a number of flaws on your teeth. It’s one of the many cosmetic dentistry options we provide at New Albany Implants.
When To Use Veneers
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is placed over a tooth. To prepare the tooth for a veneer, we will remove a portion of the enamel and then create a mold for the permanent porcelain veneer. Patients often request veneers if they have gaps or cracks in their teeth, but we have also treated patients who have had natural discoloration or discoloration from root canal treatments. If you ever had a root canal on a front tooth, you probably noticed that the tooth can discolor after the procedure. Bleaching treatments on the tooth provide only a temporary fix. Because our veneers are resistant to stains, the treatment can permanently whiten the tooth.
Veneers are natural-looking and require minimal shaping of the tooth. They also do not require special care once they are placed on your teeth and are durable and long-lasting.
An important thing to remember about veneers is that the process is irreversible, so it’s important to educate yourself and make sure the treatment is right for you. If you have questions about veneers or our cosmetic dentistry, please call our office and schedule an appointment today.
