You walk out of your new client meeting determined that you are going to do something about your smile! You tend to hide your teeth whenever you meet someone new, and it makes face-to-face new client meetings extremely awkward. There must be a way to repair the chips and staining that make you feel so uncomfortable about showing your smile. You are right! Porcelain veneers in Las Cruces may be just the solution you’re looking for.
What is a Porcelain Veneer?
When you look up the word veneer in the dictionary, it says “a thin layer as surface,” and “hide something behind.” This is exactly what a dental veneer is. It’s a thin layer of porcelain that fits over your tooth and it’s designed to cover a number of different imperfections.
Veneers can be customized to completely change the size, shade, and shape of your tooth. With porcelain veneers you can repair dental issues, and you can completely redesign your smile!
Who is a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Your dentist can tell you if porcelain veneers are the ideal treatment for enhancing your smile. They are bonded directly to your tooth, so they are a permanent solution. Veneers are capable of covering many different types of imperfections including:
- Small fractures and chipping
- Stains and discoloration
- Size discrepancies
- Excessive wear
- Slight misalignment issues
- Gaps and spacing between teeth
Veneers are stain resistant and can be custom shaded. This means you can choose how white you’d like your smile to be, and you won’t have to worry about your veneers staining or fading in brightness.
How Can I Get Porcelain Veneers?
If you’ve decided that porcelain veneers are the right treatment for you, your new smile can typically be completed in two appointments. During the first appointment your dentist will prepare your teeth for the veneers and create temporary veneers for you to wear while your final restorations are being fabricated at the dental laboratory.
This is a great time to determine if the shape and shade are right for you and let your dentist know if there any adjustments you’d like to see to your final veneers. You’ll return in 1-2 weeks when your veneers are completed to have them permanently placed.
