Countless patients have experienced life-changing transformations through cosmetic dental veneers. These thin porcelain shells are designed to cover a wide range of aesthetic issues, including stained teeth, chipped and broken teeth, and misaligned teeth. Patients love veneers for their natural appearance, durability, and versatility. They are highly resistant to staining and tough enough for real life, making them a great choice for patients who want a brighter and healthier smile.
Porcelain veneers are made of natural-looking porcelain, which closely mimics the look of your tooth enamel. They are also very durable, lasting many years and even decades with proper care. However, they will require some regular maintenance to ensure the longevity of your cosmetic enhancements.
Dr. Tsangaroulis is a smile designer, engineer, and artist and will work with you to customize each veneer and achieve your desired results. He carefully examines your teeth and smile to identify any areas of concern, and he will create a treatment plan for your specific needs. This will include a diagnosis of any underlying health concerns that could interfere with the lifespan and function of your veneers, such as TMJ Disorder or sleep apnea.
Once your treatment plan is complete, we will prepare your teeth for the placement of your veneers. This is typically a painless process that is done under local anesthesia, if needed. A thin layer of enamel will be removed from the front surface of your teeth, allowing for adequate adhesion and a seamless finish. Then, impressions or digital scans of your teeth will be taken to create custom-made veneers designed specifically for you and your smile.
After the custom veneers are created, you will return to our office for their final application. The dentist will use a dental cement or adhesive to bond the veneers to your teeth, ensuring the best fit and a natural appearance. If there are any additional steps that need to be completed, such as a filling or other oral healthcare treatments, the dentist will address them at this time.
After your appointment, you can enjoy a gorgeous and confident smile that you will be proud to show off! Porcelain veneers can help improve your self-esteem by hiding any flaws in your teeth and enhancing your smile. However, it is important to follow the proper care guidelines and schedule regular dental checkups to prevent damage and prolong the life of your cosmetic enhancements.
