If you find yourself hiding your smile when in the company of others because of imperfections in your teeth, we can help. Smile flaws can look like stubborn stains and yellowing, chipped teeth, unevenly spaced and shaped teeth, gaps between teeth, and more.
If any of these ring true to you, you might be interested in dental veneers in Paducah, KY. Tooth veneers are a common and reliable dental treatment that can transform your smile into the one you’ve always dreamed of having.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells that Dr. Scott Bridges adheres to the front portion of your tooth, unlike dental crowns that fully encompass it. Veneers can hide commonplace smile flaws like worn enamel, broken teeth, misalignment, and generally blemished molars.
The best part is that through modern dental technology and materials, we can fabricate tooth veneers that blend in effortlessly with the rest of your smile. These are not the veneers your parents grew up with!
The Porcelain Veneers Process
If redesigning your smile piques your interest, your first step is scheduling an evaluation with Dr. Bridges. We typically recommend a dental checkup and exam before proceeding with any treatment. This allows us to identify and treat any oral health issues like cavities, gum disease, or infection before enhancing your appearance.
During your appointment, we will make an impression of your teeth to fabricate a natural-looking veneer that blends in with the rest of your smile.
During the fabrication process, we will prep your tooth for the veneer by removing a tiny amount of enamel to ensure a great fit.
Modern porcelain veneers never look artificial or out of place; they are shaded and sized to mingle perfectly with neighboring teeth. People will never be able to tell that you have a dental restoration/
The entire procedure generally takes place in two dental visits and is pain-free. Patients with anxiety can rely on sedation dentistry to be extra comfortable.
Caring for Your New Veneers
While veneers are durable and stain-resistant, they can be chipped, so don’t use them to open bottles or as a tool!
Caring for porcelain veneers is as simple and straightforward as brushing and flossing as you normally would. Regular dental visits for dental cleanings and exams allow Dr. Bridges to monitor your veneers for any issues.
With proper care and maintenance, you can enjoy your veneers for 10 to 15 years and can be replaced.
