Minor imperfections in your teeth can hold you back from smiling with confidence. Whether chips, cracks, discoloration, or misalignment are the problem, Dr. Christ and Dr. Nowicki can perfect your smile with porcelain veneers. The Center for Dental Excellence East Lake is committed to providing you with undivided attention, spectacular care, and stunning results. To learn whether porcelain veneers are right for you, contact us today to schedule a consultation.
Porcelain veneers are thin, yet durable shells of porcelain that are bonded onto the front surfaces of your teeth to improve their shape, length, spacing, and color. Your porcelain veneer procedure will begin with an in-depth consultation and comprehensive evaluation with Dr. Christ or Dr. Nowicki. This appointment will be used to assess the benefits of veneers in comparison to the benefits of other procedures such as dental crowns to determine which is right for you. Veneers are individualized to fit each patient’s needs and are custom-crafted by a dental laboratory that we’ve worked with for almost 30 years.
Once your treatment plan is organized with the laboratory, we will remove a small layer of enamel to make room for the veneers, and your teeth will be cleaned, polished, and gently buffed to optimize the bond. Finally, your veneers will be permanently cemented on, resulting in a newly remade smile. Although these thin pieces of porcelain are surprisingly resistant to everyday wear and tear, it is important to avoid chewing on hard objects such as your fingernails, pen caps, and ice cubes, to keep them from cracking or breaking. At-home hygiene and routine cleanings will keep your porcelain veneers looking new. Brushing and flossing at least twice a day and visiting our office on recommended intervals for a checkup will keep your porcelain veneers looking great.
Porcelain veneers are a one-of-a-kind treatment option that can provide you with a personalized solution to imperfect teeth. Your smile (with porcelain veneers) can help you feel confident about your appearance and express yourself without reservations.
Having a beautiful smile can improve your appearance, your attitude, and your life. We want to help you look and feel great. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Christ or Dr. Nowicki and see what porcelain veneers can do for you, contact our East Lake practice today.
Your candidacy for porcelain veneers will be discussed in detail with our doctors, but if you are in generally good oral and overall health, do not have an excessive number of restorations, and have realistic expectations for your results, veneers may be right for you. Our practice is dedicated to thoroughly assessing your dental condition to establish the best care plan for you. If you have any questions or concerns about the porcelain veneers procedure, your first appointment is a great time to address them.
