When people seek to improve their smiles with cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers from Timothy G. Mahoney DDS in Wetaskiwin are a popular option.
Unlike a crown that completely covers the tooth, a veneer is a super thin layer of a very tough porcelain, composite bonding, or ceramic. When bonded to a tooth, the veneer creates a natural, translucent, and new surface. It instantly improves the appearance of the visible portion of a tooth.
To begin, you should examine what you do not like about your smile and ascertain how you want it improved. Veneers may not be ideal for you. Other cosmetic dental procedures are available that may be a better fit for the aspects you wish to change.
Porcelain veneers can fix many minor to moderate problems, including the size, shape, and color of your teeth. Gaps between teeth can be filled, as well as the lengthening or shortening of teeth to complete your pleasing smile.
Before a traditional veneer is put on the tooth, we first remove a very thin layer of enamel. Enamel cannot be replaced, which is one reason this procedure is permanent.
