How do veneers work for hiding crooked teeth for Arden area patients?
How do porcelain veneers work for crooked teeth? Porcelain veneers are very thin shells of porcelain that are custom-made and bonded over the front facing of a tooth to disguise problem areas. When teeth are crooked, these veneers can be strategically placed in order to give the impression of a straight smile. Dr. Christopher Port finds that this is more affordable, faster, and just as effective as dealing with orthodontics to correct alignment.
Patients can also use porcelain veneers to cover up other issues including permanent staining, unusually shaped teeth, or even to disguise small gaps between teeth. Our team can consult with patients to find out if veneers may be a desirable option for repairing aesthetic issues. Dr. Christopher Port and his team work together with patients to develop a treatment plan that meets their needs, stays within their budget, and gives them the smile they want to feel more confident with themselves and the way they look.
Porcelain veneers are made throughout a process that can take a few weeks. It starts with consultation regarding whether or not veneers are appropriate for the smile. Once patients have decided to pursue this option, they need to have their teeth prepared with the removal of a thin amount of natural tooth enamel. Impressions are made and mailed to a ceramist who fabricates the new veneer based on dental instructions. Patients return back to the practice for permanent placement.
