S. Donovan Essen, DDS. believes in the power of a fearless smile. One way to attain a confident smile is to consider porcelain veneers. Dental veneers are a cosmetic treatment used to cover a myriad of issues and improve the appearance of the visible surface of the teeth. A consultation with an experienced cosmetic dentist like Dr. Essen can help you see the possibilities that await thanks to porcelain veneers.
If you are sick of hiding your smile due to worn down or chipped teeth, veneers may be an ideal cosmetic treatment for you. Some discoloration, especially that caused by medication, does not respond well to teeth whitening, so porcelain veneers provide a permanent solution. Uneven spacing, gaps, and irregularly shaped teeth are easily concealed. Craters and bulges are no match for dental veneers. Whether the damage is caused by injury, illness, or genetics, porcelain veneers provide a solution many people did not believe was possible.
Porcelain veneers are an affordable solution available in Palm City at Essen Dentistry. A minuscule amount of enamel is filed away to provide an ideal surface for the veneers. A mold is then made to be used for the creation of the veneers. The thin porcelain shells are crafted to fit perfectly on the front surface of the teeth to conceal imperfections. Temporary acrylic veneers will be placed on teeth for about a week until the custom porcelain veneers are ready. Once the porcelain veneers are in place, Dr. Essen will check that the bite lines up properly and make adjustments ensuring the veneers fit just right before cementing them in place.
Make sure you continue to visit the dental office for regular check-ups to monitor the condition of veneers in case minor adjustments are needed. Remember, the natural tooth is still present, so it is important to brush teeth at least twice a day and floss once to protect teeth from decay. Dr. Essen may recommend a night guard for patients who clench or grind their teeth at night to prevent pain and damage to the veneers,
