If you have been thinking about improving the look of your smile, there’s never been a better time to do it. Updated treatments and techniques like porcelain veneers, advanced materials, and the availability of state-of-the-art technology help your dentist create seemingly endless options for a smile makeover.
While it’s great to have choices, it can also be a little overwhelming – which do you choose? There are many versatile cosmetic treatments available, but one that gets a lot of attention is porcelain veneers. Let’s take a look at why porcelain veneers are an excellent option if you’re looking for cosmetic dentistry in Lexington, KY.
#1: Veneers are Versatile
A dental veneer is a super-thin facing of porcelain that is bonded to your tooth to conceal a wide range of imperfections and irregularities:
- Cracked, chipped, or broken teeth
- Uneven gaps and spacing
- Slight tooth misalignments
- Size or shape discrepancies
- Severe staining or discoloration
#2: The Process is Easy
If you’ve had a crown placed, you’re already familiar with the steps needed to create veneers. Your dentist prepares the tooth by removing a thin layer of dental enamel to accommodate the crown. Next, an impression is taken of your prepared tooth that is sent to a lab that fabricates the veneers. When your new veneers are finished, the final step is to adjust the final veneers for fit and bond them to your teeth.
#3: The Results are Stunning
You just can’t beat porcelain veneers for genuinely transformative results. But don’t worry that you have to invest in a full set of veneers – depending on the condition of the rest of your smile, your dentist can often place veneers on just one or two teeth to produce the desired results.
