Do you notice mild to moderate imperfections in the appearance your teeth? If so, you are a likely candidate for a cosmetic treatment known as porcelain veneers. Resolving your dental woes with veneers in Henderson, NV, has never been easier: All you need to do is reach out to the team of dentists at Black Mountain Dental.
Veneers are handcrafted shells of the thinnest porcelain that are attached to the front surface of your teeth and seamlessly cemented with a composite resin material. Veneers are sometimes referred to as instant orthodontics for their virtually universal capabilities in resolving a wide range of cosmetic imperfections, including but not limited to:
- Chips and cracks
- Gaps between teeth
- Disproportionate size
Through a procedure spanning a total of two visits to our office, your teeth will be fully restored to their original state of perfection. Primarily a cosmetic treatment, porcelain veneers are placed on the front teeth that are visible when you smile and speak. Whereas veneers of the past required extensive shaping to your tooth structure, today’s procedure is short, simple and painless, offering enhanced aesthetic effects on smiles of all shapes and sizes.
The unique properties of porcelain allow it to blend perfectly with your natural teeth, resembling their color, structure and overall appearance. Your veneers can last up to 15 years with proper care and maintenance, including regular brushing and flossing as well as 6-month dental checkups. As with your natural teeth, it is essential to avoid habits such as nail biting, teeth grinding or clenching, chewing on pencils, and otherwise exposing your newly restored teeth to excessive stress.
In addition to the aesthetic benefits of the procedure, it helps prevent any potential complications resulting from the damage that your teeth have incurred. Veneers provide additional support to your tooth enamel, thereby protecting the soft tissue and nerves within. With this restoration, you can achieve a smile that shines with both health and beauty!
It is important to note that porcelain veneers are not for everyone. Individuals who are currently experiencing tooth decay or gum disease, whose tooth structure has been substantially weakened due to severe fractures or decay, or whose tooth enamel is simply inadequate for holding veneers should consult with our dentist Dr. Ghim on preliminary or alternative treatment options.
