About Custom Veneers Provided in Metairie, LA
Dental veneers are a state-of-the-art dental treatment to change the shape, color and appearance of your front teeth, but they do so much more than that. Veneers can provide a permanent solution to tooth staining, chipping, and other cosmetic issues that can detract from your smile. Your dentist, Dr. Mayda Ferguson at Second Line Family Dentistry wants you to know all the facts about dental veneers, and how they can rejuvenate your smile.
What Issues Can Veneers Fix?
Porcelain veneers are a very versatile treatment which can fix many cosmetic issues with your front teeth. Porcelain veneers can restore your front teeth beautifully by:
- Repairing teeth that are broken or damaged from trauma or accidents
- Cosmetically realigning teeth that are overlapped or rotated
- Cosmetically closing small spaces or gaps between teeth
- Changing the color of teeth heavily stained from coffee or smoking
- Restoring teeth that are cracked, chipped or unevenly worn
When you choose porcelain veneers, you have chosen the high-tech way to create a beautiful smile. You will enjoy many benefits with porcelain veneers because:
- Porcelain veneers are stain resistant and will remain beautifully white for years to come
- Veneer treatment is conservative because very little tooth surface needs to be removed
- Porcelain veneers are natural-looking due to their translucent quality just like your natural teeth
- They look delicate, but they are strong and durable and will last for many years with proper care
Porcelain veneers usually require three appointments. The first appointment is treatment planning to determine measurements, and see how your new veneers will look. The second appointment is tooth preparation, during which your dentists will buff your teeth to remove a slight amount of tooth structure, just enough to accommodate the thickness of the veneers. Models are taken of your teeth and sent off to the dental laboratory where skilled technicians create your veneers out of sparkling porcelain. At your last appointment, your dentists will cement your new veneers.
