Special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, graduations, milestone birthdays, and even major career changes usually happen only once in a while. No wonder so many men and women talk to their dentists in advance of their big events about cosmetic dentistry treatments including the placement of porcelain veneers. After all, they want to look and feel amazing when they are in the spotlight! Want to enhance your smile for an upcoming celebration? Talk to Dr. Jason M. Lane in Wasilla, AK at Lane Family Dental. Give our office a call at (907) 373-2200 to arrange a consultation.
While you eagerly wait for your smile improvement appointment, read on to discover why porcelain veneers can be the right choice for so many people planning to attend important events.
1. Porcelain veneers are an attractive treatment for discolored teeth.
Tooth discoloration happens for a wide variety of reasons. You may have a love for black tea, blackberry jam, wine, or specialty coffee drinks, all of which can leave your teeth a brownish or yellowish hue. Perhaps you spent many years taking antibiotics and wound up with grayish teeth that do not respond to teeth whitening. Maybe you were playing basketball and experienced an injury that darkened your tooth. In many these cases, porcelain veneers bonded to the front of the teeth can cover the problem.
2. A single porcelain veneer might be all you need.
Wondering if Dr. Lane will have to place multiple porcelain veneers to achieve the right esthetic? Sometimes, a single porcelain veneer will be enough to rejuvenate your smile. When Dr. Lane examines you during your initial visit, he will make recommendations on how many porcelain veneers he believes you need to reach your smile goals.
3. Your porcelain veneers are custom-fitted to the shape of your mouth.
A common misconception about porcelain veneers is that they are the same size for every person. Actually, the dentist works carefully with the laboratory to pinpoint the correct shape and color for each tooth. He will carefully take impressions of your smile as he gathers information about your mouth and jaw. His role is to enhance the way your teeth look as naturally as possible.
4. You can keep your unique smile attributes.
Do you love your little tooth gap between your top two front teeth? Keep it! Porcelain veneers are made to spruce up your smile, not make you look like everyone else. Sometimes, slight imperfections can be part of your personality and style. Discuss your desires with Dr. Lane.
5. You can expect your porcelain veneers to last for years.
With proper at-home care and regular dental check-ups, most porcelain veneer wearers do not need to replace their veneers for 10-20 years, sometimes longer. This makes dental veneers a terrific cosmetic investment for your upcoming special occasion as well as all those occasions not yet on the calendar!
