What are the benefits of teeth veneers for Greenwood residents?
With the use of porcelain shells called dental veneers, patients can dramatically improve their smiles. The great benefit of cosmetic veneers is that they can disguise a wide variety of dental concerns. They are often considered by patients who need to address imperfections such as misalignment, unusually shaped teeth, discoloration, and cracks.
Veneers are made of porcelain and are shells that Dr. Griffin of Greenwood bonds to a patient’s tooth to change the way it looks. They are made of porcelain to look natural and beautiful, providing amazing cosmetic benefits. In addition, veneers have a number of other advantages over other cosmetic treatments available at Dr. Griffin’s practice.
In many instances, the tooth may not need to be altered for placement of teeth veneers. If necessary, a very small amount of enamel may be shaved off to improve the fit and the bonding of the restoration to the natural tooth.
Porcelain is a popular restorative material for dentists due to its natural appearance. It closely simulates the look of natural tooth enamel, making it one of the best aesthetic options for improving the smile.
The process of receiving teeth veneers can be completed in just one to two weeks. The teeth are prepared, impressions are taken, and the veneers are made at an outside laboratory to the size and color specifications sent by the dentist. In less than two weeks, patients will arrive back at the dental office for the bonding of the veneers—and the instant improvement of their smile!
Whether a patient is considering a veneer for just one tooth or his or her entire smile, veneers are an economic solution to many dental concerns. They are extremely popular for smile makeovers, when several issues are occurring in the patient’s smile.
Porcelain veneers function just like a tooth’s natural enamel. They are strong, durable, and beautiful. Patients find that the only care and attention they require is the same as their natural teeth—brushing, flossing, and regular dental appointments. Veneers are also stain-resistant and can protect teeth from damage.
Veneers are a wonderful dental solution for many patients, and Dr. Griffin is happy to provide high quality veneers in his practice. Patients considering veneers or other cosmetic treatments are encouraged to call Dr. Griffin of Greenwood today!
