Do you ever wonder how so many of the rich and famous have such stunning smiles? It is not genetics or a coincidence; it is access to cosmetic dentistry that can change almost any smile or hide any flaw. Porcelain veneers are the secret behind many Hollywood smiles but they are not just for celebrities. Anyone can have a gorgeous smile with the help of our team at Rolling Hills Dentistry.
Porcelain veneers are the quick option for a smile makeover. Crooked teeth, gaps, stains and many other dental flaws can be hidden behind a perfect exterior. Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are shaped and attached to the outside of your teeth. They can last for years and can hide most dental issues that would take years to fix with orthodontics and other dental treatments.
The process to undergo a smile makeover with porcelain veneers starts with a consultation with our dentist. Dr. Winokur can examine your teeth and determine whether you are a good candidate for veneers. A tiny amount of enamel must be removed to adhere veneers, so it is necessary to have sufficient enamel on your teeth to consider veneers.
If you are a good candidate, impressions or 3D images must be made of your teeth to create the veneers. You and the dentist can discuss what flaws you want to hide to determine the best look for your new smile. The veneers must be created and your teeth will need to be prepared for the adhesion of the veneers. However, once the veneers are back from the laboratory, it will only take one visit to adhere them to your teeth and give you a new smile the same day.
The smile makeover process usually takes 2-3 appointments over about two weeks. But compared to orthodontic and other treatments to correct dental flaws, it is a very quick procedure.
