Porcelain veneers give you an excellent option to improve the way your teeth look. Are you less than satisfied with the size, shape, color, or spacing of your teeth? Then you’ll want to consider how our Richmond KY local dentist can help you. Veneers are thin shells that are placed over the fronts of your teeth, giving you an enhanced appearance and eliminating one or more cosmetic challenges that you’re currently facing.
The benefits of porcelain restorations include that they are strong, do a great job of matching the color of your natural teeth, and they offer superior resistance to staining. Personal habits such as tobacco use (either smoking or smokeless); drinking coffee, tea, or red wine; or eating foods like curry, berries, or soy sauce, can make your teeth discolored. Porcelain will maintain its color even if you continue to indulge in the things that caused discoloration to begin with. Our Richmond KY local dentist also offers porcelain crowns to cover a stained tooth, support one that has been weakened from advanced tooth decay, or is cracked or chipped. Porcelain crowns are also a key part of dental bridges, dental implants, and to make a tooth whole again after having root canal therapy.
That takes care of a single tooth, but when multiple or even all of your teeth have issues, veneers are the porcelain restoration that will be applicable. It only takes three sessions, in most cases, to fit you with veneers. First, our Richmond KY local dentist will examine you, discuss your cosmetic concerns, and answer any questions that you may have. Impressions will be taken and sent to the dental lab, which will return completed porcelain veneers. Dr. Ballou will then apply, fit, and bond them to your teeth. When you look in the mirror from then on, you won’t see cracked, chipped, or misshapen teeth; no discoloration nor large gaps. Your teeth will not be too wide. You will have uniformly shaped teeth that look fantastic when you smile. What could be better, easier, simpler, or safer? Call us today and let’s get started with dental restorations made of porcelain to give you an improved look.
