When you smile, is there a little voice in the back of your head saying “Don’t show your teeth”? If so, your self-confidence is suffering. You may spend time examining your teeth in the mirror, willing them to become straighter, brighter. Unfortunately, teeth do not chance by force of will, and as you begin to consider your treatment options, everything seems to be so time consuming. Braces can take months or even years. Why can’t you get a new smile fast? That’s where veneers come in. Your Ankeny dentist, Dr. Erika Peddicord, explains how you can redesign your smile with porcelain veneers in two to three dental visits.
A New Smile with Porcelain Veneers
One of the best things about porcelain veneers is how quickly they can transform your smile. Veneers are custom-made shells of porcelain that attach to the front surfaces of teeth to mask problems like crowded, chipped, pitted, or stained teeth. Veneers are very lifelike in appearance, carrying a natural sheen that makes nearly indistinguishable from real teeth. They are also very durable and are resistant to stains, meaning that your new smile will last.
Porcelain Veneers in Ankeny
The application of porcelain veneers typically takes two to three visits. During the first visit, your Ankeny cosmetic dentist, Dr. Peddicord, will consult with you to redesign your smile. The veneers will then be custom made for you. In a subsequent visit, Dr. Peddicord will attach the veneers and bond them into place. Before veneers are applied, teeth generally need a little preparation so that the veneers will attach properly. This preparation is generally a quick process, however.
