You’ve probably flipped open an issue of People magazine and seen a perfect, brilliant smile staring back at you. That smile likely looked different not very long ago. With today’s gorgeous dental materials, veneers can transform facial appearance dramatically in just a couple of visits. Sometimes acting like “instant orthodontics,” a set of veneers can correct chips, stains, and even deeply discolored teeth. But they can also alter the length and size of teeth, or help teeth that seem rotated suddenly appear straight. While it sounds dramatic, the journey from one smile to another is actually within reach of many patients.
Veneers form the ultimate marriage of dental art and science, handcrafted and customized to fit your smile precisely. Like a contact lens, these paper-thin pieces of porcelain bond to the outside of your natural teeth. But don’t be fooled by the thin characteristics of this material. Many unique and durable features can be incorporated into the ceramics, replicating any look you want to create.
While veneers provide a conservative way to repair bad teeth, the process requires a high level of training to produce accurately. At Specialty Smiles Orthodontics, you’re in the right place with our background in cosmetic dentistry.
One Size DOESN’T Fit All
Careful planning of your new smile is vital to a successful outcome, regardless of the materials used. Models, photographs, and digital x-rays allow you and Specialty Smiles Orthodontics to create a perfect blueprint to direct your case from start to finish. Like all successful projects, this planning can’t be compromised. Specialty Smiles Orthodontics will consider your input and incorporate your desires into your veneer case. Color, shape and other subtle factors all work into your new look.
After planning, it usually only takes two appointments to leave you with a stunning new smile. At the first visit, some areas of the teeth are gently prepared to allow space for a masterful lab technician to sculpt porcelain into place. Specialty Smiles Orthodontics provides all the information to the specialized lab that’s needed to create your personal masterpiece.
