Porcelain Veneers in Lacey
You don’t have to be a Hollywood actor or actress in order to have a smile like one. Many in the Hollywood crowd—Katy Perry, Tom Cruise, Jennifer Garner, Emily Blunt and Chris Rock just to name a few—have turned to porcelain veneers to enhance their smiles and create the exact smile they desire. Fortunately, this treatment is not exclusive to celebrities. With porcelain veneers, Lacey residents can also have beautiful smiles. Dr. Peterson and Dr. Cammack have created new smiles for many in the area, and they’ll be delighted to do the same for you.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Actually, porcelain veneers have been around for several decades. These dental wonders are super thin coverings of dental porcelain that Dr. Peterson or Dr. Cammack adhesively bonds to the facial side of teeth in your smile zone. Because they are made of porcelain, dental veneers are translucent and reflect light similarly to your own teeth for a look that is shiny and natural.
What can Porcelain Veneers Correct?
Porcelain veneers are intended to correct a variety of imperfections in your smile. In fact, dentists sometimes refer to porcelain veneers as instant orthodontics—even though they have absolutely nothing to do with braces. However, porcelain veneers can be used to make crooked teeth look straight again. In addition, they can be used to conceal teeth that are chipped, broken, cracked, misshaped, too small or irregularly spaced with wide gaps between them.
What is the Procedure for Porcelain Veneers?
The first step toward a new smile with porcelain veneers is a thorough checkup with one of our dentists. We want to make sure your teeth and mouth are healthy before beginning any cosmetic dentistry procedure. Then, we’ll collect a comprehensive set of x-rays, photos and impressions of your teeth as they are. These help us to design veneers that are the correct size and shape and that fit precisely over your teeth. We’ll also need to remove a slight amount of your teeth’s enamel so that the veneers will fall seamlessly in line alongside your other teeth and not protrude unnaturally. While your permanent veneers are manufactured in our dental lab, you’ll wear a set of temporaries to protect your prepared teeth.
The permanent set will be ready in about two weeks, at which point you’ll return to our office to have each veneer precisely cemented to its assigned tooth. Together each individual veneer creates a new smile that is as strong as it is beautiful.
