Finally, they consulted with quite a few dentists and orthodontists and because of the trauma that she had when she was a child, they said orthodontic treatment is not an option for her because the roots are resorbed. The other dentists didn't want to touch her case because it's such a huge open bite and the result is not going to be looking that good.
She finally came to me and so I gave her different options. I told her one option would be we can do some chairside veneer, that's one option. Then you can do also a porcelain veneer later on. She wants to have something done right away because her party is coming up like in a week or two. We did a chairside veneer in one visit and we have before picture, after picture and she's very happy with it.
Chairside veneer, it takes a lot of effort, of a dentist's effort, on the chairside because you have to try to make it look good right there. We did that and she's pretty pleased with the results. I told her that if you wanted to make it look even better, later on in your twenties maybe you can do porcelain veneers if your teeth roots are still okay. That's one of the things, she can have a pretty smile for her big party.
Our team fully supports patients who want to improve their smile’s beauty, but we also understand that committing to multiple, lengthy procedures to make those changes happen is often a difficult hurdle. Thankfully, there is one cosmetic service that can seamlessly erase chips, cracks, stains, gaps, slight misalignments, and other flaws all at once: dental veneers. Here at Gilbart Dental Care, our team can provide strong, gorgeous porcelain veneers for certain teeth or even your entire smile, giving you a dramatically improved appearance that is sure to dazzle in a convenient time frame.
What is a dental veneer? Are there different types?
Dental veneers are small pieces of tooth-colored material that essentially replace the natural surface of your tooth to create a more beautiful appearance. We do offer a few different types of veneers: porcelain, e.max, and Lumineers. Our team can help you determine which option is best for your specific situation and needs.
How is a veneer placed?
Veneers are placed by first removing a very small layer of enamel from the front of your tooth. We then bond the veneer directly into place. This process is quick and painless — you can have a beautiful smile almost instantly! In fact, some people refer to veneers as “instant orthodontics” due to their ability to correct minor alignment problems in a snap!
What are the benefits of dental veneers?
Veneers offer several valuable benefits. They can correct even your smallest, unique concerns so that you can feel fully satisfied with the final result. In addition to regular cosmetic flaws, we can change the size, length, or shape of certain teeth, better match teeth to one another, or simply make your smile more proportional overall.
Instead of making a big commitment to orthodontic treatment, veneers can beautifully correct gaps and relatively minor misaligned teeth in just a few short appointments, helping you save valuable time.
Only a small amount of natural enamel has to be removed so that veneers can be placed, and once they are, you will be amazed by how seamlessly lifelike they are. In fact, their translucent quality reflects light and shines brightly just like your regular teeth.
The surface of your new veneer is actually more resistant against staining than your natural smile, allowing you to maintain a beautiful look for that much longer.
