With porcelain veneers you can have cracked or discolored teeth repaired, without the time or hassle involved in having porcelain crowns fitted. If you have gaps in your teeth that you wish to have removed, porcelain veneers are a great cosmetic dental treatment, too. The veneers are matched to the color of your teeth so, to the casual observer, your smile will appear healthy and natural. Once Dr. Oliver fits the veneers in place, your teeth will become as strong and durable as ever, allowing you to enjoy chewing your food without experiencing any discomfort.
Dr. Oliver conducts a systematic analysis of your mouth, gums and teeth so that the finished result is a beautiful, vibrant smile. You will only sacrifice a small amount of enamel when your veneers are fitted. However, even that is negated as the veneers will protect your teeth from decay and damage. As well as protecting and improving the look of your teeth, porcelain veneers will also correct minor problems with your bite. Each veneer is specifically tailored to match your natural teeth, with the view to keeping them as intact as possible.
Preparation for cosmetic dental veneers in minimal, when compared to other dental restoration procedures. Less of the enamel and tooth is damaged as only a thin layer of composite is needed to repair the tooth. The process doesn't take long, either, which means you don't have to miss out on work or other important events in your life. You won't usually need an anesthetic; however, a local anesthetic is available when necessary. Two short visits is all it takes for Dr. Oliver to complete the work; one to assess, fit and match the veneer to the tooth, and a second to actually adhere the veneer.
