Get the Smile of Your Dreams with Veneers
Are you tired of hiding behind imperfect teeth? You can correct several issues using one treatment with porcelain veneers in Bedford. We carefully craft your veneers to meet your individual needs to improve the color, size, shape, and proportion of your teeth. Now, new advancements make veneers thinner to enjoy a minimally invasive solution to achieve the smile of your dreams.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. This allows them to be very versatile to hide several cosmetic imperfections using just one treatment. Often, they are used to cover dark tooth discoloration that will not respond to traditional whitening treatments, but they can also resolve chips and cracks. Overall, they enhance the appearance of abnormally shaped teeth to give you an aesthetically pleasing smile. In some cases, they can even be used as an alternative to braces by closing gaps and making your teeth appear straighter.
Different Types of Porcelain Veneers
Not all veneers are created equally. You have a couple of different options to find the perfect solution to meet your needs and to achieve your desired results. Your cosmetic dentist in Bedford performs a comprehensive consultation to determine which type of veneer is right for you.
Traditional Porcelain Veneers
Traditional porcelain veneers are thinner than those made from composite material. As a result, less of your enamel is removed during the bonding process. This allows you to keep more of your tooth intact while enjoying a minimally invasive treatment.
Minimal-prep veneers are ultra-thin. As a result, little to no enamel is removed during the bonding process. In some cases, your veneers can be placed in a single appointment; however, they may not last for as long as traditional porcelain veneers.
What is the Procedure Like?
After your consultation to ensure you are a candidate for veneers, you are scheduled for your procedure. Your teeth are cleaned, and a small amount of enamel is removed. This is necessary to allow the veneers to sit flush on your teeth. Digital impressions of your mouth are taken to craft them to meet your exact needs. This can take the dental lab a couple of weeks to ensure they are accurate, so we attach temporary ones in the meantime. Once the dental lab sends them back to our office, you return to have them bonded to your teeth. With the right aftercare, your new smile will last an average of 10 years before needing to be replaced.
