Porcelain Veneers in Elma NY
Not everyone was born with a perfect set of sparkling teeth, but thanks to advances in dental materials and treatments, we now have lots of choices for transforming your smile.
Until recently, crowns (“caps”) were the best option dentists had for concealing cosmetic dental flaws like chipped or broken teeth. Today, thanks to advances in dental technology and materials, we can offer you the option of beautiful, natural-looking porcelain veneers.
How Porcelain Veneers Work
Veneers made of porcelain are thin shells of ceramic that are bonded to the upper and, in some cases, lower teeth. Veneers are a popular option because they're versatile, conservative, and designed to enhance your smile.
Choosing veneers eliminates the embarrassment you experience when dealing with teeth that are discolored, crooked, or have uneven spaces in between them. Beautiful porcelain veneers cover these imperfections so you can go back to smiling with confidence.
Placing Your New Veneers
We’ll start with an initial consultation so Dr. Jennifer Finney can talk to you about your concerns and learn what it is about your smile you’d like to change. She will evaluate your situation, discuss what is possible, and work with you to develop a treatment plan that will help you achieve your goal.
Prior to beginning treatment, Dr. Finney will design a plan for your veneers, which she will demonstrate to you on either models or even in your own mouth! Once you accept the plan, she will remove a very thin layer of dental enamel to ensure a perfect fit for your veneer. Next, impressions will be made and sent to a specialized lab where a skilled lab technician will begin fabricating your new veneers to our precise specifications.
In a few short weeks, you will return to our office for placement of your finished veneers. We want you to be delighted with the results, and Dr. Finney will make adjustments to the veneers as necessary. Once we’re satisfied with the look and fit of your veneers, we’ll bond them securely to the surface of your teeth.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
At Springbrook Family Dentistry, we can use versatile porcelain veneers to treat a wide variety of problems.
Some people just have one or two teeth with chips or cracks that need to be filled while others are looking for a total smile transformation.
Maybe your teeth have become stained or discolored and haven’t responded well to whitening. With veneers, we can help you achieve the brightest, whitest smile you can imagine!
Do you have crooked teeth or gaps in your smile? If so, you may not need orthodontic treatment because porcelain veneers are great for filling in gaps and reshaping teeth for a more uniform appearance. However, if you have mild to moderate tooth misalignment, porcelain veneers may not be the most appropriate choice for you. If this is the case, we’ll be happy to talk to you about orthodontic treatment with clear Invisalign aligners.
Besides being esthetically pleasing, veneers also serve a functional purpose by protecting the surface of existing teeth. With porcelain veneers, the possibilities are endless, and your perfect smile is just a few visits away.
You Deserve the Best Possible Smile
Our team is always happy to see how patients who’ve had porcelain veneers placed react to their newly transformed smile. Dr. Finney has helped many patients improve the appearance of their smile with natural-looking veneers.
