The Fastest Way to a Total Smile Makeover
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Dr. Claren Harmon in Carmel, Indiana has significant experience placing porcelain veneers to help her patients enjoy more beautiful smiles. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry defines veneers as “thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel.” These thin porcelain shells get bonded to the tooth surface and are tooth colored. Our patients who desire a whiter, straighter, natural-looking smile often choose porcelain veneers because they are quicker than orthodontics and look amazing! By covering the front surface of your teeth, you can get the appearance of straight and healthy teeth without invasive and expensive surgeries.
Why Choose Veneers?
It’s one of the fastest ways to a new and radiant smile and is also a great option for those who want to fix stains on their teeth, gaps in their smiles, and correct any chipped enamel. The entire process only takes two appointments to complete. To ensure that you get the best result, we worked with carefully selected and highly trained professional lab technicians who will customize each individual tooth to look it’s best and fit properly. If you’re looking for something more permanent than a filling or whitening, the good news is that most veneers will last ten years or longer with proper care. It’s more than just a temporary fix. Because they are made of porcelain, your veneers will mimic the appearance of natural teeth in color, hue and translucency, and will be able to resist unsightly staining.
How Can I Care for My Veneers?
Because the thin shells of porcelain veneers get cemented to your teeth, they become an important part of caring for your overall oral health. It’s just as important as before to brush and floss your teeth, as well as visit the dentist regularly so we can monitor them. The better care you take of your teeth, the longer your veneers are likely to last. By avoiding biting on harder materials such as ice, or hard candies, you can help to lengthen the life-span of your new teeth.
If you’ve got chipped, stained, or otherwise damaged teeth, give Dr Claren Harmon a call today and ask whether porcelain veneers would be a good option for you. We want our patients to be proud of their beautiful teeth. A smile is one of the first things people notice about someone, make sure you make the best impression possible!
