Are your teeth stained, crooked, chipped or badly shaped? Are you embarrassed to show your teeth when you smile? Well, if you want a bright, beautiful smile that you can flash to all of your Hendricks County friends, come see Dr. Erickson at Danville Family Dentistry and ask about porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells that bond directly to the front and top surfaces of your teeth. These tooth-colored ceramic shells help change the color, shape, size and length of your teeth.
Porcelain veneers resist stains, like those from coffee, tea or cigarettes, better than resin veneers. Plus, they reflect the light similar to your natural teeth, so no one will know the difference. People will just notice you have a healthy, dazzling smile.
Porcelain Veneers – A Great Option for Imperfect Teeth
Porcelain veneers can fix teeth that are:
- Worn down
- Chipped or broken
- Misaligned, uneven or irregularly shaped
They also can fix gaps between your teeth that you want closed up.
Dr. Erickson specializes in the use of porcelain veneers to correct cosmetic flaws. By correcting these imperfections, he can help you have a big beautiful smile quickly and simply.
However, the process of getting porcelain veneers for your teeth does require three appointments:
- Consultation – During this visit, Dr. Erickson will make a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan for your veneers.
- Tooth preparation – Dr. Erickson will remove of a small amount of enamel on the surface of your teeth at this appointment. He’ll also make an impression of the teeth, so the lab can construct the veneers. Note: Because Dr. Erickson is removing enamel from your teeth, the process of getting veneers is irreversible.
- Bonding – Dr. Erickson will make adjustments to the actual veneers to ensure proper fit and color. Also, during this time, he’ll prepare your teeth for bonding and adhere the veneers to the surfaces of your teeth.
Dr. Erickson may ask you to return for a follow-up appointment to examine the veneers’ placement and to see how your gums are doing with the veneers in place.
With proper care, porcelain veneers can last a decade. However, after 10 years, they’ll need to be replaced.
So if you’re tired of hiding your smile, make an appointment today with Dr. Erickson to discuss porcelain veneers as an option for you. You’ll be on your way to stunning smile in no time!
