Have you ever considered changing the appearance of your teeth? Perhaps there’s something you don’t like about your smile? Do you find yourself admiring the smiles you see from Hollywood actors? If you answered yes to any of these questions, porcelain veneers may be the right solution for you!
With more than 30 years of experience in helping patients achieve dazzling smiles, Dr. Cradduck is the dentist patients in Hagerstown trust with their smiles.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Composed of a thin layer of porcelain that fits over your natural tooth structure, a veneer is capable of changing the shape, size, or shade of your tooth. They’re ideal for covering imperfections such as:
- Misshapen teeth or size discrepancies
- Discoloration and staining
- Slight misalignment issues
- Spacing between teeth
- Chipping and fractures
- Excessive wear
A veneer is directly bonded to your tooth so it blends seamlessly with your smile. You’ll find that brushing and flossing doesn’t change when you have porcelain veneers, and they’re very easy to take care of. They are also quite durable and they can potentially last for many years with a good home care routine and regular checkups with Dr. Cradduck.
What Is the Process for Getting Porcelain Veneers?
Your new smile can typically be completed in two or three appointments over a couple of weeks. Dr. Cradduck will prepare your teeth for the veneers at your first appointment.
He will create temporary veneers for you to wear while your permanent restorations are being fabricated at a nearby dental laboratory. This is a good time for you to get used to your new smile and let Dr. Cradduck know of any adjustments you would like made to your permanent veneers.
You’ll return to Hagerstown Family Dental after a couple of weeks to have your final veneers placed permanently, and then you’ll be off to share your new smile with the world.
