Have you ever dreamed of entering a room and lighting it up with your stunning smile? Celebrities do it all the time. They weren’t all born with gorgeous teeth. Most start off their careers with average smiles like everyone else, though some are blessed with better natural material than others. Those who need, or just prefer, the extra edge get smile makeovers.
One of the first things people notice about us is our smile. For good or for bad, those impressions are enduring. You’re not alone if there’s something you’ve always wanted to change. Studies have shown about half of all Americans have something they’d like to repair or improve about their smile. If that’s the case, porcelain veneers are a great option. These little wafers of porcelain can remake the entire nature of your smile, as well as repair defects like chips, discolorations, gaps, or even the length of your teeth.
How Do Porcelain Veneers Work?
Porcelain veneers are thin wafers of porcelain, about the thickness of a fingernail. They’re customized and perfectly sculpted to give you the stunning smile you’ve always dreamed of. The nature of porcelain makes it the ideal material to use for your smile design. It has the translucency and depth of color needed to mimic natural teeth perfectly.
Dr. Peck will sit with you to determine what kind of smile you desire. Are you looking for youthful? As we age, our teeth naturally wear down at the edges a little more every year. Adding a smidge of length, along with a whiter shade, will take years off your appearance. But, you’re not limited to looking younger. She will help you peg down what you desire then custom design a set of porcelain veneers just for you. When they’re ready, you’ll get to try them on and make sure they’re everything you’d imagined before bonding them on permanently.
