Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry option for those seeking to enhance their smile.  These thin, custom-made shells are designed to cover the front surface of teeth.  They correct a variety of aesthetic concerns such as chips, stains, gaps, or misshapen teeth.  Made from high-quality porcelain, veneers mimic the natural appearance of enamel.  They also offer a solution that is both beautiful and durable.

VeneersThe process of getting veneers typically involves two to three visits to the dentist.  The first visit includes a consultation to determine if veneers are the right choice.  It’s followed by preparation of the teeth and the taking of impressions.  The final visit is when the veneers are precisely bonded to the teeth, transforming the smile instantly.

One of the key benefits of porcelain veneers is their versatility in design.  This allows for a completely customized smile that matches the patient’s desired shape, color, and overall look.  Additionally, porcelain is resistant to stains from coffee, tea, and cigarette smoke.  Consquently, this ensures the veneers maintain their brightness for years to come.

While veneers are not suitable for everyone, for those who are candidates, they offer a minimally invasive way to achieve a dramatic improvement in the appearance of their smile. With proper care, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups, porcelain veneers can provide a beautiful, confident smile for a decade or more.  To learn more and enhance your own smile with porcelain veneers, call Premier Dental of Gettysburg today for an appointment and evaluation.
