One of the biggest factors that tend to keep people from smiling in public is the person’s worry about how his or her teeth look. The good news is that your dentist in Woodbury, MN, has all kinds of technology and techniques that are designed to help improve the look of just about anyone’s teeth. When it comes to dental imperfections, porcelain veneers may be the right solution to quickly change your smile.
You do not always have control over the things that happen around you. Your genetics may help determine if your teeth come in a little straighter or more crooked. A rogue soccer ball hitting your face could lead to chipped or cracked teeth. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that help to hide these small imperfections and give your teeth a more whole appearance.
The process of getting porcelain veneers with Dr. Marko Kamel of Woodbury Dental Arts may take more than one visit. Because Dr. Kamel bonds the veneers to the teeth, your natural teeth will first need to be gently shaped using special tools. If the veneers are custom-made, you may need to wait until the next visit to have them placed.
The shaping of the teeth is nearly painless. The reason this must be done is that, although the shells are quite thin, they still take up room in your mouth. Shaping your natural teeth first will help the veneers to feel more natural. Once they are bonded in place, they should not move – and you may be amazed at the transformation they give your smile.
There are many considerations you will want to keep in mind with veneers, including the fact that you may need to be extra careful while eating harder foods as they could loosen the shells. Dr. Kamel can help make sure you have all the information you need to fully enjoy your new smile. Contact our office to schedule a consultation right away.
