When you look at your smile in the mirror, are you happy with its appearance? If you’re like many other Americans, you may wish that certain imperfections in your teeth would disappear. At Lifetime Dental, we offer a treatment that can do just that! Dr. Frank Michitti uses custom-made porcelain veneers to transform smiles and boost confidence. The best part is that we can use them to correct a variety of flaws in your smile all at once. Keep reading to learn more about receiving porcelain veneers from our expert cosmetic dentist.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of dental porcelain that are designed to cover and conceal the front surfaces of your teeth. Dental porcelain mimics the way that your natural teeth reflect light for the most realistic looking smile. These thin shells are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth to correct numerous flaws all at once.
Typically, Dr. Michitti will remove a slight portion of your dental structure to accommodate your veneers. After taking special images and impressions of your smile, your custom-made veneers will be fabricated. You’ll come back into our dental office where Dr. Michitti will permanently place your porcelain veneers for a beautiful and confident smile.
Porcelain veneers are one of our most popular cosmetic dentistry services because of these unique benefits:
The best way of knowing whether or not porcelain veneers are right for you is to contact us for an appointment with Dr. Michitti. We routinely use porcelain veneers to correct these issues:
An additional benefit of porcelain veneers is that they do not require any special care compared to your normal hygiene practices. That means that you should still brush, floss, and rinse with nonalcoholic mouthwash to extend the lifespan and beauty of your veneers. An additional step that you can take is to avoid foods and drinks that are rich in dark colors. While porcelain is stain resistant, it can still become discolored over time if you aren’t careful.
