With porcelain veneers, you can achieve a more balanced and beautiful smile that can transform your appearance and boost your self-confidence at the same time. These restorations are also one of the few cosmetic treatments that can provide a significant cosmetic enhancement in as little as two weeks. As a highly skilled cosmetic dentist, Dr. Timothy Kelly can discuss the benefits of porcelain veneers during a consultation at our Albuquerque office. These advantages include closing noticeable gaps, covering discoloration, and fixing other minor imperfections.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells crafted from medical-grade ceramic. These shells are affixed to the front of the teeth to repair minor damage, conceal imperfections, and make minor adjustments to your dental alignment. Our personalized veneers are custom-crafted at an offsite dental laboratory using a custom-shade of porcelain that closely matches your surrounding teeth. You can also choose to use a brighter shade of porcelain and get veneers on more teeth to improve the brightness of your entire smile.
Porcelain veneers can refine the shape and size of your teeth that are unevenly worn, disproportionately small, or irregularly shaped. The natural-looking porcelain is also an excellent choice to conceal deep-set or internal stains in your teeth. This treatment can result in a more proportionate, uniform, and whiter smile. Porcelain veneers can also conceal chips and cracks, hide minor misalignment issues, and fill moderate gaps between the teeth.
Veneers are completely customized to either match the shade of your natural teeth or brighten your entire smile. Combined with the lifelike appearance of dental veneers, this personalized shading makes the restorations virtually invisible. We will also ensure that your veneers are proportional to your facial features and enhance your overall appearance. In just a couple of appointments at our office, you can have a straighter, more uniform, gap-free, and whiter smile.
As a standalone treatment, porcelain veneers can provide dramatic results. However, when combined with other cosmetic or restorative treatments, the results can be even more impressive. Porcelain veneers are commonly combined with teeth whitening, which allows your veneers to match your newly whitened smile for a significantly brighter shade.
Patients needing extensive restorative work may choose to also include porcelain veneers in a full mouth reconstruction. Veneers can address minor cosmetic issues while other treatments, such as dental implants or dental crowns, can address missing, severely damaged, or decayed teeth. When you undergo a combination of these procedures as well as porcelain veneers, we can completely transformation of your smile and oral health in a relatively short amount of time.
If you are unhappy with minor damage, misalignment, or other imperfections in your smile, porcelain veneers may be right for you. Contact our dental office today to schedule a cosmetic consultation with Dr. Kelly.
