One of cosmetic dentistry’s best-known treatments for a smile upgrade is porcelain veneers. So many patients looking for state-of-the-art cosmetic dentistry in Hermiston are interested in learning more about porcelain veneers and how they’re a great way to fix your smile imperfections. Porcelain veneers have been used for years to fix a number of teeth issues including:
Misalignment | Crookedness | Staining and discoloration | Chips and breaks
The porcelain we use for your veneers is thin (like a contact lens) yet durable with the right care at home and at the dentist. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) describes veneers as a “thin piece of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel.” What’s so genuine about porcelain is that it can also be changed to any color to resemble the look of your natural teeth.
In most cases, your cosmetic dentist can complete your porcelain veneer treatment in one to two office visits. There’s generally no pain, and the procedure requires a small amount of enamel to be gently and safely removed from your tooth to ensure there’s enough room to place your porcelain veneer. The end result is a straighter, brighter, more confident smile that will get you noticed for all the right reasons.
