Custom Smile Enhancement With Porcelain Veneers

Are you happy with the current appearance of your smile? If it has begun to take on imperfections over the years, cosmetic dentistry offers a variety of treatments to help you look and feel your best! A bonding procedure can repair individual chips for instance, and professional whitening can help you lift stains from your enamel. But what should you do if you have multiple flaws at once? Scheduling multiple appointments can feel overwhelming, but with the aid of porcelain veneers, you can customize your entire smile with a single treatment! By creating a set of restorations that fit comfortably over the front of your existing teeth, you can plan the shape, size, and color of your new grin with ease! Take on minor gaps between teeth without orthodontics or repair lost dental height due to a pernicious grinding habit!

At your Ankeny, IA, dental practice, we help you improve the health and well-being of your smile comprehensively. Because our appearance contributes greatly to our mental health, a smile makeover can be a valuable component to generating self-confidence. If you have multiple smile flaws that require addressing, we can evaluate your grin to determine how veneers would best complement your natural beauty!

Improving Your Smile With A Versatile Treatment

By placing a set of porcelain veneers over your existing teeth, you can vastly improve your smile without the need for extensive surgery. This means that you can take on different types of imperfections on multiple teeth by planning a single procedure. Forego planning separate visits and treatments for different teeth by taking advantage of this cosmetic technique. We can improve chips, spacing issues, discoloration, and lost height in as little as two visits to our practice.

Planning And Placing Your New Smile

When you schedule your initial consultation, we will take an extensive evaluation of the health and appearance of your current smile to plan any cosmetic work. If you have any active health concerns, we will require addressing them first before moving forward with your procedure. This could include removing cavities or performing a periodontal treatment to help you control gum disease symptoms. Moving forward we take careful measurements of your existing teeth to plan the size and shape of your veneer fronts. Custom dental ceramic allows us to select whatever shade of tooth you would like during the planning stage. To prepare your smile, we will shave a small portion of the enamel from the center of each tooth to hold your new restorations.

When your veneers are ready for placement, we will invite you to a second appointment to verify their shape and fit. After making any necessary adjustments, we will permanently bond each veneer in place in your smile. With proper care and rigorous oral hygiene, you can enjoy your brand-new smile for many years!
