Smile enhancement has never been easier and more comfortable. Porcelain veneers are the most direct route to a bright, pretty smile. They’re fast, affordable and perfect for people who have discolored, chipped, or uneven teeth.
You’re probably hearing more and more about the benefits of laser-assisted veneer placement, replacement, and debonding. Laser technology is at the forefront of cosmetic dentistry and is becoming the gold standard for treatment. Quality lasers minimize trauma to the tooth surface and eliminate the vibrating effects of the whizzing drill which translates to a more comfortable experience for you.
Tiny, but mighty, veneers have the power to:
- brighten color
- enhance shape
- close diastemas (gaps)
- lengthen short teeth
- restore worn edges
- widen a display
- protect enamel
Laser-assisted removal of old or “misplaced” veneers prevents damage to underlying tooth structure. Veneer removal is fast (only minutes, compared with hours with a drill and crown separator) and minimally-invasive so there is little to no downtime.
Like crowns and other forms of restorative dentistry, veneers live in a wet environment 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so they’ll need to be replaced eventually. Proper oral hygiene will help them last as long as possible.
A pretty pout feels awesome and can be a confident booster, but it’s important to find an experienced dentist who understands your specific desires. If you decide to enhance your smile with veneers, remember to discuss treatment process, cost and how to care for your investment.
