How often have you looked at yourself in the mirror, and said, “I really wish I had a better smile, but I do not have a whole lot of money to spend on cosmetic dentistry”? If that sounds like you, then you could be a candidate for porcelain veneers.

In days gone by, to be truthful, porcelain veneers were not all that wonderful. They were thick and awkward, and really did not do all that much to improve a person’s smile, other than hiding stains and chips or other imperfections. They also frequently failed, and the process of removing them could be difficult. Today, however, porcelain veneers are so thin and smooth, they are indistinguishable from your natural teeth. And even better, if you are a candidate for porcelain veneers, you can save a great deal of money when compared with outer dental treatments like crowns or implants.

The Benefits

Porcelain veneers can give you whiter, brighter, straighter, chip-free teeth with very little time spent in the dentist chair. Start to finish, they only require a visit or two, and they will give you the smile you want. Of course there are other cosmetic treatments available to you, like dental crowns, but if you do not actually require a full dental restoration, then you are probably a candidate for porcelain veneers.

The Procedure

In order to install porcelain veneers on your teeth, Dr. Buzbee just scrapes away a bit of your tooth enamel. Then he makes you bite into a plate of goop (we know, that’s nasty, but this is how impressions of your teeth are made) and sends the results off to a lab. A master ceramist then makes your veneers. Once they are completed, Dr. Buzbee will bring you in for another appointment, where he will do a bit of fine-tuning, make sure that the color is exactly right, and then cement them onto your teeth. Usually the whole process only takes a couple of visits; three tops.
