There are more cosmetic treatments than ever before to help you achieve the dazzling, beautiful smile you desire. One of the most popular options offered at Walla Walla Dental Care is porcelain veneers. These thin shells of dental porcelain get bonded to the front surface of your teeth to improve the appearance of a wide range of smile imperfections.
Dr. Dan Laizure can use porcelain veneers to correct just about any cosmetic issue with your smile, including:
- Misshapen teeth - Severely worn teeth - Gapped teeth - Chipped or cracked teeth - Discolored teeth that haven't responded to teeth whitening procedures - Crooked teeth
Due to this versatility, Dr. Laizure commonly recommends porcelain veneers as both a stand-alone procedure and as part of a smile makeover.
In addition to wanting to address one or more of the cosmetic issues listed above, good porcelain veneers candidates:
- Have healthy teeth - Don't grind their teeth - Are free of gum disease or are willing to undergo periodontal treatment to restore healthy gums prior to the procedure
In addition, porcelain veneers are a great option if you would like to improve the appearance of crooked teeth, but don't want to invest the time necessary to complete orthodontic treatment. Dr. Laizure can use veneers to deliver a straight, beautiful smile in just two visits to our office. For this reason, porcelain veneers are often referred to as "instant orthodontics." Keep in mind that veneers won't actually straighten your teeth; they just provide a straight appearance. If you want to enjoy the functional benefits of a straight smile, you'll need to undergo orthodontics treatment.
