By on May 08, 2015
If you've always wanted beautifully straight teeth, but don't want to deal with cumbersome metal braces, instant orthodontics with porcelain veneers may be right for you. Porcelain veneers can correct a wide variety of cosmetic dental problems, including mild malocclusion, in as little as two dental appointments. To find out if instant orthodontics with porcelain veneers treatment is suitable for your dental needs, we welcome you to schedule a consultation with Clarksville cosmetic dentist Richard Ribeiro.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are tooth-shaped dental fabrications that can be used to repair minor dental damage and cosmetic flaws. When used as instant orthodontics, porcelain veneers can correct mild malocclusion, close gaps between teeth, and improve symmetry. Instant orthodontics treatment can be completed in as little as two dental appointments, eliminating the need to wear uncomfortable metal braces for several months.
Instant orthodontics with porcelain veneers is a quick and virtually painless procedure. Once we determine that you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers, we will thoroughly clean the teeth and develop the design specifications for your custom veneers. Next, the teeth are further prepared for veneer placement by removing a thin layer of the tooth enamel. This will allow room for the porcelain veneers to sit flush against the teeth. Once the teeth are prepared, impressions are made and sent to a dental lab for each veneer to be custom crafted. Temporary veneers will be placed while the permanent fabrications are being made.
A second dental appointment will be required once the permanent veneers are ready. During this final appointment, the temporary veneers will be removed and the permanent veneers will be checked and adjusted for proper fit. The porcelain veneers will then be bonded to the teeth using dental cement. Next, they are polished to complete the treatment.
