Dental veneers may be one of the simplest, most transformative cosmetic dentistry procedures available today. At Crater Lake Dental we use porcelain veneers to hide dental flaws and create a smile that you’ll want to share with everyone you meet.
Porcelain veneers can produce a smile that looks flawless while seeming completely natural. In addition, porcelain veneers are known for their durability and strength. There really isn’t any other option in cosmetic dentistry that compares to dental veneers!
You may want to cover a single tooth that is throwing your smile off balance, or you may want a complete smile makeover. In either case, dental veneers can be just the ticket to giving your smile the boost it needs.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Dental veneers are extremely thin shells made of porcelain. These shells are customized to fit your teeth exactly, and they can hide a multitude of flaws, including chips, cracks, stains or discoloration, as well as other dental anomalies.
Perhaps you have one crooked tooth or one large gap. Dental veneers can be used to cover these inconsistencies. We refer to this convenient fix as ‘instant orthodontics’ because it’s a way to quickly change your smile and mask issues that would need months and years to fix with orthodontics.
Porcelain is the material of choice when it comes to creating dental veneers. That’s because porcelain’s light-reflecting properties make it extremely similar to the natural enamel of your teeth.
Like your tooth enamel, porcelain allows some light to pass through its surface. It isn’t as reflective as other materials. Once we have shaped your veneer to perfectly fit your tooth and we’ve matched the shade to the rest of your teeth, the veneer can be virtually impossible to detect at a glance.
Dental Veneers and Other Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
You can also use dental veneers in concert with other cosmetic dentistry treatments for a more complete smile makeover. Depending on your needs, we can help you determine which cosmetic procedures are best for your smile goals. One of the great advantages of porcelain veneers is that we can create a lovely smile in as few as two visits.
