With one simple procedure, we can remove any imperfection your teeth might have and give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of. All it takes is just two easy appointments.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are actually extremely thin ceramic coverings that are attached to the front of the teeth, and they can improve a smile’s appearance in just about every way you can imagine. They can:
- Instantly whiten teeth
- Fix chips and cracks
- Close noticeable gaps
- Lengthen short teeth
- Straighten slightly crooked teeth
You can get a single veneer to enhance one tooth or a full set to completely makeover your smile. It’s entirely up to you. Porcelain veneers are always custom-made, so they can give you everything from a subtle touch-up to a dramatic transformation. In any case, they’ll always make you eager to show off your smile.
What is the Procedure Like?
If you’re interested in getting porcelain veneers, the process will start with a simple consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Lake in the Hills, Dr. Tim Stirneman. During this appointment, you’ll get a chance to talk about your personal smile goals, and Dr. Stirneman will determine if porcelain veneers are the best way for you to achieve them.
If they are, the procedure will begin with him gently removing a small portion of your enamel. This will enable the veneers to lay absolutely flat on your teeth. He’ll then take an impression and fit you with a temporary set of veneers. The impression will be sent to a trusted dental lab where your permanent veneers will be crafted by a master ceramist.
Once they are completed, you’ll return to Compassionate Dental Care to have them bonded to your teeth. After checking their fit and making a few final adjustments, your new smile will be ready for the world. It’s just that easy!
How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?
As seen in numerous studies, porcelain veneers typically last for about 10 years, but this timeframe can be greatly extended with a bit of simple maintenance. The key to keeping your veneers looking like new? Simply brush your teeth, floss, and come see us regularly for checkups. This, along with protecting your teeth with a mouthguard whenever you play sports, can easily make your veneers last for up to 20 years.
