Have you ever been watching a movie or TV show, seen an actor’s smile, and thought, “How are their teeth THAT perfect?” If so, you were likely looking at porcelain veneers. The secret behind many of Hollywood’s most gorgeous smiles, you can now get the same treatment right here in Fargo at Cornerstone Dental. Whether you have noticeable stains, chips, cracks, or gaps, veneers can make them all disappear behind a flawlessly white grin, often in just two easy appointments.
The porcelain veneers procedure involves placing extremely thin ceramic shells over the front of the teeth that are designed to look like perfectly healthy enamel. They are made in a dental lab in accordance with a patient’s preferences, and they are bonded into place using dental cement. It’s basically like putting a mask on your teeth, and they enable Dr. Goodwill and Dr. Majidian to completely transform the smile with a single treatment. With them, they can literally change the shape, size, and color of a patient’s teeth to whatever they want.
Porcelain veneers can take care of all of the following aesthetic issues at the same time:
The process to get porcelain veneers typically takes at least two appointments. At the first one, your dentist will ask you about your smile goals, quickly examine your teeth, and let you know what your treatment options are. If porcelain veneers treatment is one of them, they can then begin the process of creating your treatment. Your dentist will work with you to help you figure out what you want your final results to look like, and once everything is agreed upon, they’ll actually start making your veneers.
This will start with them removing a small amount of enamel (about the width of a contact lens) from your teeth to ensure that the veneers lay flat. They’ll then take an impression of your teeth, and this will be sent to a dental lab to fabricate your veneers. While they are being made, you’ll be fitted with a temporary set of veneers so you can “test drive” your new smile.
A week or so later, you’ll return to Cornerstone Dental where your dentist will remove your temporaries and bond your final veneers to your teeth. They’ll check the fit, your bite, and make any minor adjustments as needed. Once this is complete, you’re finished, and your new smile is ready for the world! In order to keep your veneers looking like new, you should maintain a consistent brushing and flossing routine at home as well as attend regular checkups. With the right care, a set of veneers can easily last for about 20 years.
