Creating Beautifully Custom-Made Smiles
Do you have flaws or imperfections in your smile? Whether you know it or not, it may be holding you back. Your smile is a powerful tool that you can use to make impressions, but if it’s full of chips, cracks, gaps, or other issues, you may be self-conscious to flash your grin. Thankfully, at Brown & Nawrocki, we offer porcelain veneers to completely transform your smile. Contact our office to get started on a beautifully enhanced set of teeth.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of dental porcelain that are custom-made to be placed on the front surfaces of the teeth that show when you smile. Dr. Andrew Nawrocki will securely bond the veneers to your natural teeth to create a strong and beautiful smile. The best part is that they can be made to your exact specifications, so you can pick the size, shape, and color of your porcelain veneers.
There are 2 different types of veneers, and Dr. Nawrocki will give your mouth a careful examination to determine which one is right for you.
Traditional Porcelain Veneers
Traditional veneers usually take 2 trips to our office to complete. During the first, a small amount of your tooth structure is removed to accommodate the porcelain veneers that cover it. You will be given temporary veneers to wear until your next visit to protect your prepared teeth. During your second visit, Dr. Nawrocki will bond the porcelain veneers onto your teeth to create a beautiful smile.
Minimal-prep veneers eliminate the need for additional appointments and temporary veneers. In one visit to our office, Dr. Nawrocki can use a thinner veneer that doesn’t usually require the alteration of your natural tooth structure. Because there is no preparation that needs to be done, you can receive a dramatically improved smile in a shorter amount of time. Plus, if you want to return to the look of your natural teeth, you still have that option available.
What is the Procedure Like?
Once we decide that porcelain veneers are right for you, Dr. Nawrocki will remove a small portion of your tooth enamel to make room for your veneers. After, he will take X-Rays and special impressions of your smile to send to a dental lab for the custom creation of your veneers. That’s when you’ll receive your temporary veneers to protect your teeth until your next appointment. Once we receive your veneers, you’ll come back in to get your temporary veneers replaced with permanent ones. Most patients experience little to no discomfort and can resume their daily activities after numbing from the placement wears off.
What Are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
Patients enjoy a wide variety of benefits from porcelain veneers, but here are some of the most popular advantages:
