Veneers for a Hollywood Smile

Veneers are capable of concealing an array of cosmetic dental flaws quickly and permanently. Therefore, a Hollywood smile is easily attainable with veneers from Dr. Connie Feng at Twin Leaf Dentistry. Here is more about this treatment and the aesthetic enhancement it offers.

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the fronts of teeth that are affected by a variety of flaws, including discoloration, chips, cracks and bad spacing or rotation. Because veneers are translucent and tinted to match enamel, they appear completely natural. While some patients have one or a few veneers placed, many patients choose to have all of their teeth covered for a great-looking, low-maintenance smile that lasts. Veneers are efficiently placed in just two appointments: the first for tooth preparation and temporary veneer placement, and the second for attaching the permanent veneers.

Most patients can receive veneers, but certain aspects of the treatment should be considered beforehand. While the veneers are resistant to staining, they require a different approach instead of whitening if discoloration does occur. Instead, polishing can be performed. Veneers also are irreversible, because the initial preparation involves taking some enamel off of the treated teeth. In some cases, patients may require restorations beforehand to ensure that their veneers will remain stable.

Veneers can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years with proper brushing and flossing and biannual checkups. Regular in-office cleaning helps ensure that a smile with veneers will glow consistently.
