If polls of dental patients are true, around 60 percent of people want to do something to improve their smiles. That’s a lot of people unhappy with the way their teeth look, and with the fundamental role your smile plays in your look it’s important to feel confident about it!
What kind of options do you have when it comes to perfecting your smile? There’s a whole bunch of cosmetic dental treatments available, but most of us assume they take forever to get results. That might be true of some of the cosmetic services we offer at our Oregon City office, but not all of them!
Veneers: The Fast Way To A Great New Look
What if we told you it was possible to reshape, repair, recolor, and rejuvenate your smile in just two visits? You might be a bit skeptical, but it’s absolutely possible to transform your look that fast with veneers. Using just a thin layer of porcelain we can make your smile look exactly like you want it to without any of the hassle of orthodontics or oral surgery.
It all starts with a bit of enamel removed from the surface of your teeth. This creates the ideal surface for veneers to be bonded to your teeth. Once we’ve prepped your smile we’ll take an impression that’s sent to our dental lab along with detailed instructions for how you want your new teeth to look.
At a second appointment – usually a couple weeks later – we’ll attach the veneers to your teeth and your permanent new smile will be ready to be shown off to the world! With proper treatment veneers can last for decades.
Why Choose Veneers?
There are a lot of reasons why patients decide to get veneers instead of braces or other restorative treatments. The most common reason is the speed of the results – rather than spending years working toward a solution you can have it in just weeks.
For many patients veneers are a great option when a wedding or other family event is on the horizon. You want to look your best when such big things are happening, and veneers can get you there in no time at all!
What Can Be Fixed With Veneers?
There are a number of conditions that are perfect for restoration with veneers. As long as your teeth are healthy you can likely get great results using this speedy solution!
- Chips in teeth can leave them looking unsightly, but a veneer can cover and repair the dings and dents that life throws at your smile.
- Premature wear from teeth grinding, acid reflux, and other health problems can leave your teeth looking short and stubby. Veneers can add length and reshape teeth in no time at all.
- Deep stains and severe discoloration can’t always be removed through traditional teeth whitening, but veneers can cover those stains without any issue at all.
- Misshapen or crooked teeth can be reshaped with ease using veneers. All we have to do is decide on the perfect shape and you’ll be on your way to a great smile in no time!
Do Veneers Look Fake?
People often get an image in their minds of “chiclet teeth” when they think of veneers. That might have been true a few decades ago, but modern dental porcelain can do some amazing things while still being thin and incredibly lifelike.
Our veneers are made to be as thin as they can be, yet the don’t sacrifice any realism. When we attach your veneers you’ll be amazed at how realistic, yet flawless, they look!
What Are My Veneer Options?
We offer three kinds of veneers at our office: no-prep, minimal prep, and traditional porcelain. The only real variation in these three kinds of veneers is how much enamel has to be removed in order to securely attach them.
No-prep veneers can often be attached without any enamel removal at all, and are best for patients who need simple repairs to get the perfect smile. In most cases minimal prep veneers can be used to create a new smile, leaving you with a great look without sacrificing much healthy enamel. Traditional veneers are the most affordable solution, which is attractive to many people looking for fast results without breaking the bank.
