Many look in the mirror and wish they could make a few changes to achieve a more ideal smile. Whiter, straighter, and fuller smiles are attainable with the effective treatment of porcelain veneers. This addresses a multitude of issues that impact the appearance of teeth.
Dr. Scott M. Carel is an expert at enhancing smiles with porcelain veneers. His practice serves Oklahoma City and surrounding communities with dental care that ensures patients have healthy teeth and appealing smiles.
One Convenient Treatment for Many Dental Concerns
Porcelain veneers solve many of the imperfections that detract from an individual’s appearance, such as:
- Mild misalignment
- Discoloration or staining
- Chipped and worn teeth
- Misshapen teeth that are too small
- Unwanted gaps or uneven spaces
Treatment with veneers is also conveniently completed within two office visits. Most patients have veneers placed on the most visible teeth in the top and lower jaw; these teeth are also known as “the social six.”
Quality Placement of Porcelain Veneers for Health and Beauty
Before treatment, Dr. Scott makes sure that there are no concerning oral health issues, and he inspects the enamel of the teeth. Patients receiving porcelain veneers need a particular amount of enamel to guarantee proper placement. For those with insufficient enamel, porcelain crowns are available.
Using impressions of your teeth, a lab customizes veneers to transform your smile. Patients are encouraged to help design the shape and shade of the veneers to suit their unique preferences.
Veneers are made of porcelain which has an identical appearance to natural tooth enamel. Porcelain is stronger than natural enamel, and it affixes securely onto the front of teeth, providing a minimally invasive enhancement.
At the second visit, Dr. Scott bonds these ultra-thin, shell-like veneers onto the teeth. The bonding agents in the cement are activated with a curing light which is shined on to the teeth. After bonding, teeth are immediately ready for normal use.
