Cosmetic Dentistry Being Offered in Tucson, AZ – Why Patients are Turning to Veneers More Than Ever Before!
If you have an imperfect, but overall healthy smile, cosmetic dentistry can be the answer you have been seeking to achieve a renewed and reinvigorated smile. If so, you should ask Dr. Jeff Martin, Dr. William Taylor and the team at Martin Taylor Dentistry in Tucson, AZ, they offer multiple cosmetic options, including porcelain veneers.
Hide Chips, Cracks, and More!
Porcelain veneers provide concealment and protection for minor cosmetic issues which are visible when an individual smiles or talks. When you visit Dr. Taylor or Dr. Martin for your dental consultation, they will be able to determine if you are a likely candidate for veneers. Individuals who have relatively healthy teeth but suffer from cracks, chips, discoloration, or slight gaps between teeth may be considered good candidates for porcelain veneers.
For individuals who have teeth that are fragile or unhealthy, a porcelain crown may be recommended as a crown is able to protect the entire tooth and not just the front of the tooth. Whatever is decided, Dr. Taylor will have your best interests at heart when determining the correct course for restoring your smile.
Minimal Enamel Removal
Enamel is precious. Once it wears away, it never comes back. It is gone for good. This makes it a truly fortunate circumstance that only a very thin layer needs to be removed before applying a veneer. Since the entire process is non-invasive, no anesthesia is necessary. Since porcelain veneers are simply bonded to the front of a tooth, only a very thin layer needs to be removed from the front. This is a much smaller amount than a dental bridge or crown (which engulfs an entire tooth) requires.
The entire process of receiving veneers should take just 2 visits into the dentist’s office. During the first visit, a thin layer of enamel will be removed so that the veneers which are being constructed will not appear large and bulky. Temporary veneers will be put into place while the permanent ones are being created to match the shape, size, and color of your surrounding teeth. Once you return and the veneers are ready, they will be bonded to the front of your teeth. It is an incredibly easy and pain-free process for patients. You will have renewed confidence in your smile and will love to show it off!
