Over the years, wear and tear can affect the appearance of a patient's teeth. Sometimes natural defects in the teeth like shape and size can prevent the patient from achieving the smile they want.
When they decide they want to improve their smile and start investigating their options, veneers are among many choices they might consider depending on their wants and needs.
Ultimately, figuring out if veneers are right for you requires a visit to your Winchester, KY dentist to discuss the possibilities.
At Central Kentucky Dental, we provide porcelain veneers to our clients to help them achieve the smile of their dreams.
We can apply veneers to a single tooth or many, depending on the patient's needs and vision for their smile.
What Is a Tooth Veneer?
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain cemented to the front of a tooth. In order for the veneer to fit properly and not bulge, the dentist removes a thin layer of enamel.
After the dentist removes the enamel, we bond the veneer to the tooth. This means that the veneer is permanent.
Though they don't require special care beyond what's provided for your natural teeth, patients will have to replace their veneer if it is damaged. Replacement is necessary because of the tooth enamel that was previously removed from the treated tooth.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Veneers in Winchester, KY?
Patients looking for ways to improve their smiles may be surprised to find that veneers can change the appearance of their teeth in ways they never thought possible.
And most patients are good candidates for veneers, but specific issues might prevent veneers from being an option.
Meeting with a dentist to discuss the health of your mouth and the pros and cons of veneers will be the best way to know if you are a good fit for this cosmetic dentistry option.
Porcelain veneers provide numerous benefits:
- Creates a 'movie star' smile in less time than orthodontics and teeth whitening
- Porcelain is more stain-resistant than the naturally porous enamel that covers teeth
- Alternative to braces and invisible aligners
- It can act as a shield protecting and reinforcing a tooth
- Can fix the appearance of chipped, cracked, pitted, discolored, and misshapen teeth
- Fill the gaps between teeth
- Straighten the appearance of slightly misaligned teeth
