All smiles are beautiful by nature. But there’s no doubt that a mouth full of healthy, gorgeous teeth will draw people to you and help increase your self-confidence.
At the office of Andrew R. Jung, DDS, we are in the business of creating beautiful smiles!
We want to take the time to get to know you so we can understand and work with your goals. You have lots of options to choose from, and porcelain veneers are just one of the methods we have available to create your best possible smile.
Veneers used to be thought of as a luxury that few could afford. These days, improvements in dental materials and techniques have made porcelain veneers more accessible to patients like you who want to change the appearance of their smile. Just imagine – your flawless new smile may be only a few appointments away!
Veneers Will Transform Your Smile!
Do your teeth have small chips that make you self-conscious? Are uneven spaces or gaps between teeth causing you to hide your smile? Porcelain veneers are the solution for these and many other cosmetic problems.
A veneer is an ultra-thin shell of porcelain that is bonded to the surface of your tooth to conceal imperfections. Dental porcelain is a strong, durable material. With proper care, well-made veneers can last ten years or more.
How We Place Veneers
When you consider the dramatic transformations we can achieve, the process of placing veneers is not very complicated. Before we decide if veneers are the right choice for you, Dr. Jung will take some time to chat with you about the changes you would like to make to your smile. In some cases, we may recommend another treatment that is more appropriate depending on your specific needs.
Placing your porcelain veneers requires just a few simple steps:
- Preparing your natural tooth to allow enough space for your new veneers to fit perfectly
- Taking impressions of your teeth that will be used to create your veneers
- Creating temporary veneers to wear until your new veneers are ready
- Adjusting, placing and polishing your new veneers
Since your temporary veneers are a mock-up of your permanent veneers, this is a good time to take note of the way they look in your mouth. During this period, you can let Dr. Jung know if there are minor changes you’d like to make so we can adjust your final veneers accordingly. Veneers are an investment, and we want you to be thrilled with the final outcome.
