Aesthetic dentistry solutions such as veneers can transform the smiles of Indianapolis patients
Porcelain veneers are a versatile aesthetic dentistry solution that can overcome a variety of imperfections in a person’s smile. Dr. Church has been using veneers for many years to help patients who are dealing with misshapen, crooked, chipped, stained, or moderately misaligned teeth. When you come into our Indianapolis area office for a consultation, you can learn how veneers are placed, what they can correct, and the best ways to care for them. This investment in patient education allows us to give you the knowledge and tools to keep your brand-new smile looking beautiful for years.
Dental veneers are ultra -thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the front of existing teeth. Veneers can be used on just one tooth, or all visible teeth for a total smile rejuvenation.
Veneers are effective at masking the following flaws and imperfections:
- Cracks or chips in the enamel.
- Teeth that are misshapen, worn down, or poorly formed.
- Stained or discolored teeth.
- Minor alignment problems such as small gaps or slight crowding.
Dental veneers usually require two separate appointments. During the first visit, impressions are taken of the teeth and sent to a laboratory for custom fabrication of the veneers. You will be fitted with temporary veneers while you wait for your permanent ones.
Once the permanent veneers are ready, you will come back to the office for placement. The veneers are checked for appearance, size, and shape before they are bonded to the teeth with a specialized dental adhesive.
Veneers are resistant to stains and do not require specialized care beyond proper daily hygiene. Remember to brush at least twice daily and floss each night.
