Unhappy with your smile, but uncertain of which treatment option is best for you? There are various conservative cosmetic treatment alternatives we offer to patients at Frederick G. Lehmann’s Chapel Hill dental office. One such therapy choice is minimally invasive porcelain veneers.
Minimally intrusive porcelain veneers are extremely thin and developed to cover the surface of the teeth to which they are used. With this sort of veneer, tooth structure is left intact and just altered when required.
Minimally invasive veneers assist clients save their enamel. That’s an advantage over more invasive procedures like tooth caps. Also, with veneers, an anesthetic is not needed. Because veneers are not as invasive, they could be reversed. But no single dental therapy is suitable for everyone. It is very important for clients to study all of their options. Veneers can be durable and offer years of wear.
Masking mild to moderate tooth discolorations, fixing small misalignments and rotation of anterior teeth, and reshaping undersized and peg-shaped teeth are just a few of the possible improvements minimally intrusive porcelain veneers offer.
With all of the readily available therapy options for people who are dissatisfied with their smiles, it might be difficult to pick which one is best for an individual. Dr. Lehmann can go over the options with you and help you decide which procedure is best for your situation.
Typical mistaken beliefs about minimally intrusive porcelain veneers:
- “Minimally intrusive porcelain veneers will make teeth look too huge or too long.” Not Necessarily. In almost all cases, some tooth reshaping is needed to allow the teeth and smile to look better than the smile the patient began with.
- “Minimally intrusive porcelain veneers can cause gum illness.” We take steps to prevent that. The dental professional will finish and polish edges to prevent ledges and to make the veneers smooth. As with all teeth, clients should floss and brush around the veneers.
- “There will be level of sensitivity after having veneers bonded.” With minimally invasive veneers, considering that the tooth enamel is maintained, level of sensitivity is very rare.
Dr. Lehmann will listen to your concerns about your smile and offer alternatives that will likely improve the appearance of your smile, the durability of your teeth, and also your self-esteem with your improved smile.
