Wanting a beautiful smile is more than just vanity; your smile impacts your confidence and self-esteem. Rather than continuing to hide behind a smile that you do not like, you can have the straight and beautiful smile you have always wanted. You do not even have to undergo a lot of surgery or wear braces for months. With veneers, you can achieve the look you want with much less time and effort. That is why Dr. Walden discusses the option of porcelain veneers with his patients looking for a smile makeover.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are generally made out of porcelain. They are thin shells that go over the front of your natural teeth. They transform weak, discolored or misshapen teeth into straighter, whiter ones for an enhanced smile.

What Do They Fix?

Veneers are versatile with the ability to fix many different problems with your smile. Some of the most common reasons that people use veneers include:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • Uneven or misaligned teeth
  • Worn down or weakened enamel
  • Excessive wear and tear of your teeth

How Are They Placed?

Rather than spending months in braces, you can get veneers with just three visits. After an initial appointment to evaluate your teeth, then your teeth are prepared for the veneer placement. This includes removing a small amount of your tooth enamel so that you can accommodate the veneer. After shaping your teeth, an impression is made to design the veneers for a perfect match. Then, in your third and final appointment, the newly made veneers will be placed over your natural teeth using a dental cement to secure them. Before everything is finalized, Dr. Walden will ensure that the veneers are in the right location, ensuring your smile looks exactly how you want it to.
