Change your smile, change your life. That statement is not an exaggeration. When you improve the appearance of your smile, you give yourself a new outlook on life. Simply put, you smile more. Porcelain veneers can make that difference. If you have teeth that aren’t as attractive as you’d like them to be, then porcelain veneers in Rocky River, OH, from Dr. William Eick and his team can give you a new smile that is practically perfect.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers—also called dental veneers or just veneers—are custom crafted pieces of ultra-thin porcelain that are adhesively bonded to your front teeth. These dental wonders are used to correct a variety of imperfections including teeth that are chipped, cracked or broken, as well as those that are a bit crooked or have wide gaps between them. With porcelain veneers, Dr. Eick can change the size, shape, color and length of your teeth. And because they reflect light in a way that is similar to enamel, porcelain veneers give you a natural looking smile.
Porcelain Veneers from the Cosmetic Dentist in Rocky River
Once you and Dr. Eick have determined that porcelain veneers are the best cosmetic dentistry treatment for your smile, we’ll take impressions of your teeth. These impressions allow us to create a mock up of what your new smile will look like once the veneers are in place. You and Dr. Eick will use this mock up to finalize the size, shape and color choices for your porcelain veneers.
Placing veneers usually requires two appointments with your dentist in Rocky River. At the first, Dr. Eick will remove a thin layer of tooth enamel to ensure that the veneers fit evenly and comfortably in your mouth. This is usually done with local anesthesia, so you don’t feel any discomfort. Once your teeth are prepared, another impression of your teeth is taken. Our dental lab uses these impressions to design and fabricate your customized veneers. While the lab works on your veneers, you’ll wear a temporary set to protect your teeth.
In a couple of weeks, you’ll return to our office to have the permanent veneers placed onto your teeth. Dr. Eick will check to make sure that all the details of your veneers are as specified. If they meet his and your expectations, then they are bonded to your teeth and you have a new smile.
