Teeth veneers at dental practice give perfect smiles to North Carolina patients
One dental procedure that provides instantaneous striking aesthetic results for a patient is the application of teeth veneers. To achieve the most natural look, as well as for an efficient and pleasant procedure, the practitioner for this process should be carefully chosen. Dr. Steven L. Hatcher and Dr. Sona J. Isharani maintain a comprehensive practice for all members of the family in Greensboro, North Carolina, serving surrounding areas including Kernersville, Winston, Salem, High Point, and Burlington.
Appearance influences one’s personal self-esteem, as well as makes an impact on those he or she encounters. A smile speaks volumes. Many issues that leave one dissatisfied with the look of the smile may be corrected with porcelain teeth veneers. They can correct minor teeth flaws such as chips or cracks. The dullness of teeth that are stained may be covered with shining veneers when a whitening process is not sufficient. Uneven or misshapen teeth can be perfected in a person’s smile with veneers.
Veneers are achieved in just a few visits with the dentist. The initial consultation is important to communicate goals between the dentist and the patient. This is the time to discuss projected results, verify the whiteness shade desired, and any coordinate any other details relating to the veneers.
The next scheduled visit will involve the dentist removing a very thin layer of enamel from the teeth that will be receiving veneers. This assures that the veneers or not too “thick” or unnatural looking when placed, and prepares the texture of the tooth for good bonding to the applications. Following this, impressions will be made of the patient’s mouth. These are sent to a lab and used to manufacture the veneers to precise detail for each tooth.
At the final visit, the dentist adjusts and tweaks the manufactured veneers for alignment, appearance, whiteness or bite alignment. A process called etching is done to give the veneers a rougher, more true to life appearance. A bonding agent is applied to the prepared teeth, in order to prepare the teeth to perfectly accept placement of the porcelain veneers. Finally, the dentist applies cement and permanently places the veneers for the last step in the perfected smile. The thin ceramic shells now covering the teeth can be used and treated like their natural teeth.
