The Versatility of Veneers
Are you wondering what exactly dental veneers can do for the appearance of your smile?
It’s almost the start of the New Year and, as you probably already know, most people start considering their New Year’s resolutions. Perhaps this year you’ve decided it’s time to improve the look of your smile. If you’ve dreamed of having a smile that rivals that of Hollywood stars, then our York, PA, dentist Dr. Robert Hoffmaster is here to tell you how veneers could help.
As you might be able to tell, these thin porcelain restorations are designed to look just like natural tooth enamel and when they are adhered to the front surface of one or more teeth they can greatly alter the shape, length, texture and even color of your smile.
You name the cosmetic flaw and chances are good that dental veneers can hide them. From stains and chips to gaps between teeth and minor crowding, there are so many dental issues of differing severities that dental veneers can improve.
Want a whiter smile but have deep stains that don’t seem to respond to professional teeth whitening? Do your front teeth overlap one another? Are there unsightly pits in the enamel of your teeth? If so, you’ve come to the right place because our York, PA, cosmetic dentist can easily mask all of these issues and more with this simple porcelain restoration.
How do I get veneers?
The first thing you will have to do is undergo a thorough examination. During your exam, we will also run X-rays to make sure that your teeth are strong enough and that there is enough healthy enamel to support veneers. If your oral health is great then chances are good that you’ll be a great candidate for veneers.
The next step is to prep your teeth and take impressions of them. Tooth preparation is minimal with this treatment, which is just one of the many reasons so many people turn to veneers. Instead of reshaping or removing a lot of enamel from your teeth we only have to remove trace amounts to make room for your veneers. The process is painless.
Impressions will also be taken so that we can create restorations that offer an exact fit over your teeth. Once your veneers have been created, you’ll come in one last time so that we can bond them to your teeth.
