It can help you make a great first impression, create a more professional appearance, increase your attractiveness to potential romantic partners, and most importantly, it makes you feel great about yourself. It seems as if every movie star has one, but they are elusive in real life. Of course, we are talking about the perfect smile, with straight, bright, uniformly shaped teeth and that extra “wow factor.” What is the stars’ secret? The answer is cosmetic dentistry, often porcelain veneers – and they are available from Patel and Dornhecker Dentistry in Bridgetown and Fairfield.
Veneers, as the name implies, are very thin layers of cosmetic material adhered to the front surfaces of teeth. We offer both porcelain and resin veneers. The procedure is fast and convenient, requiring very little tooth preparation. Depending on the type of veneers you choose, the entire process may take from one day to a couple of weeks.
The choice between resin or porcelain depends on your needs and preferences.
During your consultation, the dentist will discuss your options, explaining the pros and cons of each. No matter which type you choose, expect a dazzling, natural looking result, thanks to the refined cosmetic dentistry skills of our dentists.
Is there something about your smile that you dislike? No matter what it is, there’s a very good chance that dental veneers can fix it. Veneers are among the most conservative dental restorations, because the natural tooth structure stays almost entirely intact. We only need to shave a tiny bit of enamel in preparation. Yet, a veneer completely covers the visible part of the tooth. That means a veneer can change the color, shape, and size of a treated tooth. A whole set of veneers can drastically change the look of your smile – or, we can design them to look exactly like your natural teeth, with the absence of a few flaws.
Dental veneers put you in control of your smile. From a minor adjustment to a full smile makeover, you can change whatever you want, as much or little as you like. The benefits of veneers include:
Look in the mirror and smile. If you aren’t happy with what you see, then veneers might be a good option for you. The most important prerequisite to treatment is good oral health. For example, a thin veneer is not enough to repair a broken off or badly decayed tooth. Additionally, untreated oral disease can shorten the lifespan of dental restorations, besides harming your teeth. If needed, we will recommend addressing oral health issues before starting cosmetic treatment.
The best way to find out if veneers are right for you is to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Patel or Dornhecker. Just call (513) 815-3188 (Bridgetown) or (Fairfield) (513) 815-3166 to get started.
