Smiles for a Lifetime
Porcelain Veneers

You can ask almost anyone, and they will tell you that they wish they could improve the appearance of their smile. Some people want whiter teeth, others want teeth that are longer, or to have that chipped tooth repaired. No matter what you want done, whitened teeth, a chipped tooth fixed, a gap closed, or a tooth lengthened, porcelain veneers can be the solution to your cosmetic issue!

You may be wondering what a porcelain veneer is, exactly. Veneers are thin shells that are made of porcelain and are adhered to the front surface of your teeth. Veneers can be designed by your dentist to be the shape, size, and color that you desire for your smile. A veneer is one of the easiest and least invasive ways to drastically improve the cosmetic appeal of your smile. 

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers can correct that following defects:

  • Discoloration that cannot be corrected via a teeth whitening system (e.g. discolored teeth from prescription medication)
  • A gap between teeth that you want closed
  • A tooth that is chipped 
  • A tooth that is not long enough or appears too short

What are the advantages of receiving a porcelain veneer?

  • Veneers keep your teeth looking natural
  • Your gums are tolerant of porcelain
  • You determine the shape, size, and color of your veneer
  • Porcelain resists staining from foods and drinks
  • The procedure is minimally invasive

Many of us don’t like the look of our teeth, whether it be the shape, the length or we may have damage such as cracking and chipping. There are ways to change the look of your teeth and here are a few options.

Dental re-contouring is a procedure also referred to as stripping, slenderizing, odontoplasty and enameloplasty.

This is where the dentist scrapes off small amounts of tooth enamel to change the shape of your teeth. Dental crowns are also a option when you have a cracked or damaged tooth. The crown or cap is placed directly over the tooth down to the gum line. Dental veneers or dental porcelain laminate can also be used over a damaged tooth. A veneer is a tooth-colored, wafer thin material that is bonded to the front of the tooth.

Another option to choose to mend a crack or chip is dental bonding. This is accomplished by the application of a durable resin that is placed on the surface of your tooth and becomes bonded with a special light.

With all of these options the best thing to do would be to call Dr. Van Treese at his Sidney, OH dental office to discuss your needs further.
