Simple, Effective Smile Transformation
In most cases, the best way to treat your smile is to boost the natural structures of your teeth and oral tissues rather than change them. Sometimes, however, altering your tooth structure is necessary to prepare for a custom restoration. In the case of lifelike porcelain veneers, that level of alteration is significantly lower than it is for other treatment options, such as dental crowns. The thin layers of realistic dental porcelain are bonded to the front surfaces of one or more teeth. Because they’re so thin, Dr. Foust can prepare your teeth for their placement by simply sculpting a small amount of enamel from their front surfaces.
The Advantages of Porcelain Veneers
The benefits that come with improving your smile through porcelain veneers extend beyond your smile’s final appearance. Besides closely mimicking the color, shade, and light-reflection of your healthy teeth, they also minimize the total amount of dental work you need to complete in order to improve your smile. This means you can enjoy the smile you’ve always wanted without having to take excessive amounts of time out of your schedule and without having to drastically alter the healthy, natural tooth structure that you still retain.
