Have you ever noticed someone’s smile get remarkably better overnight? Odds are, their new look is thanks to porcelain veneers (also known as dental veneers).
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic porcelain that are about the thickness of a contact lens. Despite being thin, they are built to last and are very strong. Each veneer is crafted to match the look and color of your teeth, providing a natural and bright smile.
Dr. Blevins has extensive experience providing porcelain veneers and giving people a smile of which they can be proud. Here are the top 5 benefits of getting porcelain veneers from Dr. Blevins:
If you have chipped, discolored, or damaged teeth, smiling can sometimes feel embarrassing. We always start with a consultation where Dr. Blevins will ask how you want your smile to look. Do you think your teeth are too big or too small? Do you need to cover a chip? Do you want whiter teeth?
Whatever your situation, we can help improve your smile. Dr. Blevins will craft veneers that are custom made to your needs and wants, ensuring you have a smile that gives you confidence.
Historically, dental veneers required a mold to be taken of your teeth. This mold was then sent to an off-site dental technician where veneers were created to fit the mold and then sent back to the dentist who originally took the mold.
At Blevins Dentistry, we have a better way. Using CEREC® technology, we are able to craft custom porcelain veneers to your exact specifications, and we can do it right here in the office. That means we can prepare and bond the veneers to your teeth on the same day! You’ll experience a lesser wait time and more time with your new smile.
It’s important to know that porcelain veneers are permanent. In order to apply them, we need to remove some of the enamel from the teeth before placing the veneers. For this reason, we take extra care to ensure patients are happy with their design and color.
It’s a great advantage, however, to know that when you invest in your smile with veneers from Blevins Dentistry, your investment will not erode, break off, or need to be replaced any time soon (if ever).
Thanks to CEREC® technology, we can ensure your veneer fits perfectly with your actual tooth and creates a strong bond. We also use ceramic porcelain, which is a very strong material that won’t break easily.
One of the most common reasons people opt for porcelain veneers is that they have stained teeth. Teeth whitening can take weeks and isn’t always an option, but a veneer can be a great alternative. A single visit to the dentist can provide you with a sparkly, white smile.
Best of all, the material we use for our veneers has more stain resistance than your actual teeth. That means that, with proper oral care like brushing your teeth, your smile will stay brighter for longer.
At Blevins Dentistry, we strive to make every patient feel welcome and comfortable. We know that a visit to the dentist office can be scary for some people, so we do our best to make it an enjoyable experience. We listen to your needs, investigate the situation in your mouth, and work with you to determine the best path forward.
We make the process of getting porcelain veneers as painless as possible. Little to no aesthetic is required, but we treat each patient according to the needs of the situation.
Once you have your new veneers, your new smile might feel a bit funny, but you shouldn’t experience pain. Some patients do experience temperature sensitivity, but this does not last for long. Mostly, however, you’ll just be excited to show off your new smile!
