Welcome to the Holly Dental Care blog!
For anyone with a less than perfect smile, we want you to know that you are not alone, and that it is easier than you think to improve your outlook in this regard. Our team is well-versed in cosmetic dentistry solutions designed to quickly boost your appearance, confidence, and so forth.
You owe it to yourself to schedule a consultation with Dr. Hunter. That way you can decide on a plan of action that makes good sense for your situation. If you aren’t looking for anything too elaborate, you just might be a good candidate for dental veneers.
Veneers Hide Your Flaws And Show Off Your Beauty
So, let’s start at the beginning. What in the world are dental veneers? Veneers are durable shells that get applied to the front of your actual teeth. They can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain. And they provide a realistic, tooth-colored look. The easiest comparison is to say they are like false fingernails, but not exactly.
The best part is that whether your teeth have been horribly damaged or are merely marked by a few minor imperfections, a porcelain veneer will make your smile sparkle again.
How invasive is it? Applying traditional veneers can typically be done easily in one to two visits to our office. Don’t get all worked up about the thought of a dental procedure, if you are anxious, we can help you relax your fears with the magic of sedation dentistry.
We’ve Got You Covered
To make the transformation happen, we will make an impression of your tooth so that we can craft a veneer that will fit over the tooth while looking and feeling normal in your mouth.
Once we have your unique veneer ready to go, you will just have to come back to HDC for the second phase of the treatment. At that point, we will remove a small section of the surface of your teeth and bond the veneer to your tooth to replace that section.
Each thin shell is bonded to the tooth’s surface to hide anything from chips to stains to gaps. Around here, we provide multiple options to get the job done: lifelike porcelain veneers, no-prep Lumineers and budget-priced EZ Veneers.
EZ Veneers are ultra-thin but very strong porcelain sheets that cost much less than traditional veneers. They require little to no enamel reduction, they are completely reversible and can be placed in two short visits.
Much like EZ veneers, Lumineers are built out of from high-grade dental ceramic that is about as thin as a contact lens. They’re so thin that no enamel cutting is required!
As another alternative, we also can perform a veneer-like procedure which is basic interior composite bonding. This involves applying the white filling material to the teeth. We can re-shape and change the color of any tooth with this method.
