Porcelain Veneers

An Easy Way to Get a Brand-New Smile

Your smile is an important feature – it communicates a great deal about you to the outside world. However, a few people shroud their smiles because they are ashamed of the state of their teeth. Regardless of how you have treated your teeth in the past, cosmetic dentistry can offer a solution to your current dental problems. Veneers are a particularly straightforward and beautiful way to get your teeth looking healthy and shine bright again.

Understanding Veneers

Veneers are an extremely thin shell of porcelain that is intended to fit on the surface of your teeth. Each veneer is custom made to only fit your teeth and is typically used as a permanent cosmetic dental solution. Applying the veneer to a tooth changes the tooth’s color allowing it to appear as if your teeth are naturally whiter. These are commonly used when different techniques are ineffective.

The Process

It may take a couple of appointments to finish applying the veneers. On your primary visit, the teeth receiving the veneers will be buffed to accommodate the thickness of the porcelain appliance so it can be applied evenly. A mold of your teeth will be taken by Dr. Jones to create a blueprint of how your veneers should be shaped.

At your following visit, Dr. Jones will check the size, fit and shade of each veneer. At which point you can then decide if you want to alter the color of your veneers. When you are satisfied with the color, the veneers are cleaned with a special cleaner and applied to the tooth using a special dental bonding agent that is hardened by a light beam.

A Permanent Tooth Replacement Solution

Are you looking for a permanent tooth replacement solution?  If so, you should take some time to learn about dental implants and how they are the best option for a tooth replacement. Prior to their creation patients, only tooth replacement options were dental bridges or dentures, now with the introduction of these innovative dental prosthetics, you can now look forward to another great replacement option. At Dentistry of Fishers our dentist Dr. Jones offers multiple dental implant treatments for different tooth replacement cases.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Since dental implants are created with the purpose of simulating natural-looking teeth, this option can boost a patient’s self-esteem since they will allow the person to show an unproblematic set of teeth that they can be proud of.

Other than it’s aesthetic advantages, dental implants offer better speech functionality. Unlike traditional dentures that sit on top of the gumline and can cause speech impediments, dental implants a surgically inserted into your jawbone allowing the titanium screw to act as the tooth’s root allowing for a more structurally sound product. Making your speech and word pronunciation sound a lot more natural.

Another great advantage of dental implants is they allow you to live the life that you are using too. Even though you should always opt to live a healthier lifestyle, dental implants do not force you to limit the types of foods you can and cannot eat. They also do not need to be removed during certain times of and the day or during certain events like standard dentures. This allows you to feel as if your implants are your natural teeth and make your everyday life with them as seamless as possible.

Things to keep in mind

Although dental implants are durable and made to last a long time, you should still care for them as if they are investments. This means that you should have a good dental hygiene regimen that you perform on your implants once or twice a day. This should consist of brushing and flossing after every meal and scheduling annual dental visits to confirm your implants are in good shape.
