Are you one of those people who smiles or laughs with your hand over your mouth because you don’t want people to actually see your smile? Well then, why not just cover your smile permanently? With porcelain veneers from Dr. James G. Mace in Washington, MO, you can conceal the smile you have and reveal the smile you want.
Smiles can be marred by a number of imperfections including:
- Chipped and cracked teeth
- Misshaped teeth
- Old, discolored fillings or restorations
- Teeth that have gaps in between them
- Crooked or misaligned teeth
- Stained and discolored teeth that have not responded to teeth whitening
Porcelain veneers can hide these flaws. Furthermore, a single veneer can improve the appearance of one tooth—in which case Dr. Mace will carefully select the shade that most closely matches the color of your other teeth. Or he can create an entirely new smile with porcelain veneers for all of the teeth in your smile zone.
The Porcelain Veneer Procedure
Once Dr. Mace has determined that you are a good candidate for veneers, he will take records and photos so he and the lab can design your new smile. This design will be used for your temporaries so you can try out your new smile before the final restorations are made, and any necessary changes can be incorporated into the final veneers. At the second appointment, Dr. Mace will remove a minimal amount of enamel from the teeth to be restored. This allows the veneers to adhere better and lay flush with your other teeth. He’ll take an impression of your teeth that his cosmetic dental lab will use to fabricate veneers that fit perfectly. While your permanent veneers are being made, you’ll wear a temporary set that is based on the new design to shield your prepared teeth. When your custom veneers arrive, you’ll return to our office for Dr. Mace to carefully bond them to your teeth. He will artfully trim and polish your veneers for a perfect finish. When completed, you’ll have a smile that you’ll never want to cover again!
