You may be considering porcelain veneers because you’ve heard about their amazing ability to transform smiles, even ones with fairly extensive damage. Veneers are thin shells of dental porcelain that are bonded to the front of your smile, and they have the power to completely change how you feel about your smile in just a few visits to Picard Dental Associates in Woonsocket, Rhode Island.
Why are porcelain veneers so popular? For one thing, they’re a conservative option. Unlike crowns, they don’t require that we modify the entire tooth prior to placement, so for cosmetic changes, they make more sense and conserve more of your natural tooth enamel. But porcelain veneers are also able to correct a host of aesthetic problems at the same time. What kinds of problems can we cover up with porcelain veneers?
- Crooked Teeth
- Misshapen Teeth
- Worn Teeth
- Short Teeth
Dr. Picard will create a custom dental veneer that can then be placed over the tooth and bonded so that your smile both looks great and functions fully. These translucent pieces of porcelain are completely lifelike, and we can customize the size, shape, and color so that they fit right in with the rest of your smile. The process takes two visits; during the first visit, we’ll prepare your teeth and take impressions, and during the second, we’ll place the veneers and make any necessary adjustments.
Why are porcelain veneers so amazing? For one thing, they can act as “instant orthodontics.” If your front teeth are slightly crooked and you don’t want to wait for orthodontic treatment to have an effect, you can cover those crooked teeth in just two appointments at our Woonsocket, RI dental office! Also, they can cover up stains or discolorations that won’t budge for teeth whitening. Sometimes, teeth are discolored underneath the enamel (called intrinsic stains), and these won’t be lifted by teeth whitening. Instead, you can cover them up and gain the confidence of a bright white smile with porcelain veneers from Picard Dental Associates.
