Your favorite movie star may have been born with charisma, but they probably weren’t born with their stellar smile. The dazzle, uniformity, and brightness come from dental veneers. Dental veneers from Allright Dental in Morrisville, Pennsylvania, transform your smile to rival that of an A-list celebrity. Expert, skilled cosmetic dentist, Shalini Mandapatti, DDS, chooses the right veneers to correct defects, strengthen teeth, and create a stain-free smile. To find out if you’re a candidate for Hollywood’s smile secret, contact the Allright Dental team about veneers by phone or use the online form.
Veneers are natural-looking, tooth-shaped shells that lie directly on top of your natural teeth. Your dentist may recommend veneers if:
Your teeth are of uneven lengths or shapes
You have gaps between your teeth
Your teeth are highly stained
You have a gummy smile
Your teeth are crooked
Your fillings are visible
Your teeth are cracked, chipped, or worn
Your teeth are slightly misaligned
Veneers are a permanent smile correction. If you’re a candidate for veneers, you can change the type of veneers at a later date or replace those that wear out over a decade or so, but you can’t return to your natural, non-veneered teeth. Veneers are irreversible.
Veneers are fashioned from natural-looking porcelain or high-quality composite materials. They not only improve the look of your current smile, but they also resist stains so that you never have to worry about what you eat or drink again. As long as you brush and floss twice a day and come to Allright Dental at least twice a year for a professional cleaning, your veneers improve your smile for life.
Because veneers are cemented in place, they also strengthen your natural teeth. If you have a chip or crack in your tooth, a veneer is a stronger and longer-lasting correction than bonding.
If you’re a candidate for veneers, your dentist cleans your teeth, gives you a mild anesthetic, and then lightly buffs your teeth so they can accommodate the thin veneer shells. They take a mold of your prepared teeth and send it to the lab along with recommendations for correcting your aesthetic problems.
Your veneers are custom-designed to harmonize with your facial features and skin tone. Your dentist’s expert eye allows them to choose the right tooth shape, length, width, and shade to give you a beautiful smile. Until your custom-designed veneers are ready, you wear temporary veneers.
Within weeks, you return to Allright Dental for your permanent veneers. Your dentist first checks the fit and adjusts the color, if necessary. Once the veneers are perfect, your dentist cements them in place. They seal the bond with a laser light treatment. You walk out of the office with a beautiful new smile in under two hours.
