Searching for the perfect smile, but tired of whitening gels and kits? Do you want to avoid lengthy and costly orthodontic programs but want straight teeth? Do you want to see your new smile soon rather than later? Dr. Caracioni can give you the smile of your dreams with high-quality porcelain veneers.
Why Pick Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are very thin pieces of porcelain attached to your teeth to improve your smile cosmetically. But don’t be alarmed- porcelain is extremely durable and very much like tooth enamel, which makes it an optimal material for use in the mouth. Porcelain is also highly customizable, which means it can be shaped into specific shapes or sizes of teeth, and even customizable for a color to match your other teeth, so your smile will look natural.
Porcelain Veneers are Personalized
Every mouth is different, so when you come in for your smile makeover consultation, Dr. Caracioni will do a full examination of your mouth first to ensure the health of your teeth. If anything needs to be addressed to improve your oral health, it is important to have it done before you get your veneers or any other smile makeover procedure. This is to ensure your beautiful smile lasts and that your mouth is healthy.
After ensuring your oral health is on point, Dr. Caracioni will create a mock-up image of your smile that will allow you to see what you will look like with your new veneers. Your mock-up image is also to make sure that you like how they look before they are fixed to your teeth.
Porcelain Veneers Function Just like Regular Teeth
Once you give the green light to go ahead, your veneers are designed with your smile goals in mind. Veneers can help give the appearance of straight teeth, cover misshapen or broken teeth, cover gaps between teeth, and brighten smiles. Your veneers are then made from ceramic layers that are glued to the tooth enamel. To ensure a tight bond with the tooth, a small part of your tooth is removed to allow the glue to stick to the surface. This also ensures a more natural look and feel to the teeth, and lets you chew and bite down normally.
After your veneers are installed, you can treat them just like regular teeth. Patients should avoid extremely hard or sticky foods to not damage their smiles. Be sure to brush twice a day and floss twice a day to keep your teeth and gums healthy and your smile looking great!
