Our smile is one of the first things others notice about our appearance. For many, crooked or uneven teeth or gaps in between their teeth, cause them to hide their smile, taking away the confidence a great smile can deliver.
Thankfully, there are ways to achieve the perfect smile with nearly immediate results. Porcelain veneers are custom-made for your desired look and fit your mouth structure. Although they are susceptible to damage just like real teeth, they also can be much harder, and stain-resistant, allowing for a great smile for many years. With proper care, porcelain veneers can last over 15 years.
In a process that usually takes about a month to complete, you and Dr. Evola will meet and determine if porcelain veneers will not only help your mouth function with eating and talking but how they may improve your smile. Once the treatment plan is agreed upon, Dr. Evola will prepare your teeth by grinding enough to make room for the porcelain.
A mold impression is then taken and sent to a dental lab, where the veneers are created over two weeks. During this time, Dr. Evola will apply temporary restorations that, although not exactly like the porcelain veneers, will already provide a noticeable improvement to your smile.
Once the porcelain veneers are ready and back from the lab, they are permanently bonded in place. Although they are fragile on their own, this bonding to your existing teeth gives them strength and rigidity for years to come. Best of all, you can have a near-immediate improvement in your smile.
There is no reason to allow uneven or crooked teeth keep you from having the confidence-boosting smile you deserve.
