Complete Your Smile Makeover with Porcelain Veneers
A healthy, flawless smile radiates beauty, and that beauty can permeate every area of your life. Simply knowing that you have a nice smile is a boon to your confidence and self-image. When your smile is beautiful, and you use it liberally, you are likely to find social and professional interactions much easier. According to psychologists, we develop an opinion of someone within 30 seconds of our initial meeting. This all-important first impression is based largely on nonverbal communication, such as smiles.
Dr. Kevin Rykard and his team offer a comprehensive variety of cosmetic services to meet your needs. In some cases, a simple solution such as teeth whitening may be sufficient. However, if you have multiple esthetic issues with your teeth, you may be considering a full smile makeover. Although that may sound like an extensive, lengthy, complex process, it can often be completed in a few weeks with a single procedure – dental veneers.
Porcelain Veneer Benefits
A veneer is a thin piece of porcelain, adhered to the surface of the tooth. They are about as thick as a fingernail, so minimal tooth preparation is needed. Despite being fast and conservative, veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic dental procedures available. They can be used to:
- Alter the shape of a tooth
- Cover permanent stains and discoloration
- Change the size of a tooth
- Even out an uneven smile
- Close spaces between teeth that are set too far apart
- Make mildly crooked teeth appear straight
- Much, much more
Most patients with esthetic complaints are excellent candidates for veneers. The most important prerequisite is having essentially healthy teeth. Although veneers can correct minor damage such as chips or worn enamel, they are too thin for repairing severely worn, decayed, broken, or otherwise compromised teeth. If such problems are detected, Dr. Rykard will recommend an alternative such sturdy porcelain crowns.
