Ultra-thin porcelain veneers can correct chipped, weakened, or discolored teeth.
No more yellow. No more gaps or embarrassing chips. Veneers can return real structural integrity to damaged teeth, while leaving them looking as good (or possibly better) than the originals. Veneers are custom made to fit over your natural teeth, with a finish more translucent to blend in with surrounding teeth. So people won’t notice your tooth, they’ll simply see your beautiful, natural smile.
Veneers Restore the Luster
If you are considering aesthetic improvements to restore your smile to its youthful appearance, check with Advanced Dentistry By Design to see how your smile can be designed to look natural, healthy, and bright.
Over the years, you’ve enjoyed your morning coffee-and-doughnuts routine. But all of a sudden, you look at your smile in the mirror and realize the morning ritual – combined with the passage of time – has taken its toll on your teeth. You’d love to get back that brilliant smile of your youth, but doubt that whitening alone could do the trick. Smile design with our Carson City office could be an avenue you might want to pursue.
What are veneers for?
Some patients may choose to target “problem” areas in their aesthetic zone (the top front teeth they reveal when they smile), and others may opt for a complete smile makeover that involves more than just their front teeth. Because of the way they are made, veneers aesthetic properties closely mimic those of a natural tooth. Serving as a customized option for Carson City patients looking to achieve a smile transformation on a small or large scale, veneers can be designed to match the shade and translucency of neighboring teeth.
For teeth that are aged or discolored, porcelain veneers may be the answer to hide years of wear or mask severe stains. Veneers and the technology behind designing smiles have evolved to meet many aesthetic and restorative needs including:
- Closing gaps between teeth that have shifted
- Repairing teeth that are crooked or worn
- Adjusting tooth shape or size
- Fixing a gummy smile
How Veneers Work
Porcelain veneers have a glass-like texture that resists staining. On its own, a veneer is fragile, but when properly bonded to the tooth it can be as strong as enamel and provide an attractive, polished restoration for 10 to 15 years. And because veneers are so thin, it is likely that only a small amount of natural tooth will need to be removed to make room for the restoration. The amount depends, of course, on factors that include tooth position, your bite, and how your teeth are positioned in your mouth.
