Get the Smile of Your Dreams
Most of us aren’t born with dazzling, movie-star smiles, and even the Hollywood elite often need a little help enhancing their smiles. Even if you never step onto a Broadway stage or the backlot of a movie studio, a cosmetic dentistry treatment called veneers can give you a stunning smile that makes you a movie star in your own right.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are wafer-thin pieces of porcelain that are customized to look like your natural teeth, but minus the imperfections. Veneers can cover chips, gaps, or discolorations, as well as broken, worn-down, uneven, misaligned, or odd-shaped teeth.
How Many Veneers Do I Need?
There’s no right answer because it’s different for each person. However, one way to go about that question is to stand in front of a mirror, smile broadly, and count the teeth that stand out the most.
Determining how many veneers you need comes down to your overall goals. Are you mostly trying to brighten your smile, fix some cosmetic issues, or a combination of both? You can get veneers on just a few teeth to repair chips or gaps, or get them for your whole smile.
Beautiful, Bright Smile Makeover
One of the most significant advantages of veneers is that you can make major changes and get a complete smile makeover in less time and much more comfortably than you would with other restorations. Although veneers are permanent and irreversible, they’re also a conservative way to transform your smile. If you’re on a tight timeline, say for a special occasion like a wedding or reunion, you can get a complete smile makeover and impress your friends and family.
The Veneer Process
While we can complete dental veneers in two appointments, the entire process is better understood in three parts.
Step One: Your Consultation
Before you decide on a treatment, you’ll meet with Dr. Doueck so he can examine your oral structure, review your medical and dental history, and explain your treatment options. If you believe that veneers are ideal for your smile, we can get started on the same day.
Step Two: Collecting Impressions of Your Smile
Dr. Doueck will take impressions of your smile and send that information to our local dental laboratory so that they can design and manufacture your veneers. The impressions allow the lab to create custom-fitted pieces of porcelain, which will flawlessly blend with the rest of your smile. Typically, it takes about two to three weeks for the lab to finish your veneers.
Step Three: Attaching Your Veneers
Once your veneers arrive, you’ll return for the final appointment. Dr. Doueck will lightly etch the surfaces of your teeth so the veneers will bond to them more easily. Then, he’ll apply a dental adhesive and gently place them on each tooth. After a quick polish, your new smile will be ready to show off to family, friends, and the rest of the world.
