Are you unhappy with the appearance of your smile and ready to make a change? If you would like to correct a few minor smile flaws or want a more dramatic smile transformation, porcelain veneers at Randolph Dental Associates can help you achieve your goals.
As a cosmetic dentist, one of the great rewards for Dr. Christopher Kaplan is seeing the positive impact that an aesthetic treatment like veneers has on his patients’ confidence. If you weren’t born with a flawless smile dental veneers can help you achieve one, regardless of your age.
What Porcelain Veneers Can Do for You
Porcelain veneers conceal cosmetic flaws by creating a new tooth surface that hides whatever lies beneath it. These ultra-thin shells of porcelain are customized to sit on the front surface of a tooth to camouflage aesthetic problems like:
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Size or shape discrepancies
- Gaps or spacing issues
- Tooth staining or discoloration
- Mild tooth misalignment
And don’t worry that you will need a full set of veneers to get the look you want. Our Randolph cosmetic dentist can often create beautiful smile transformations with just one or two veneers.
Taking the First Step with Porcelain Veneers
If you want to make any kind of cosmetic improvement to your smile, start by calling Randolph Dental Associates to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kaplan. He takes great pride in providing customized care for his patients and creating treatment plans based on their unique needs, wants, and desires.
With cosmetic dentistry, there’s often more than one approach to address an issue, and during his evaluation, Dr. Kaplan may find that a procedure like dental bonding or porcelain crowns is a better fit for your needs. You can be confident that we will explore all your options, discuss the benefits of each, and help you to choose which is right for you.
Treatment with Porcelain Veneers
Once you and Dr. Kaplan decide that dental veneers are the right treatment, we start by taking comfortable digital impressions of your teeth. We’ll talk about the exact look you want to achieve with veneers and choose a white shade for your veneers, so they blend seamlessly with your smile.
A custom dental lab uses our impressions to fabricate your veneers, which takes 2-3 weeks. When we get your veneers back from the lab, we’ll schedule an appointment at our Randolph dental office to adjust your veneers for a perfect fit, then bond them securely to your teeth.
Living with Porcelain Veneers
If you take care of your oral health with conscientious oral hygiene and dental exams every six months, your veneers can last as long as ten years. Because of their smooth surface, veneers resist staining from red wine, coffee, and other food and drinks.
Care for your veneers as you would any other tooth restoration. They are strong and durable, but they can chip if you bite down too hard on a popcorn kernel or crusty bread.
We Can’t Wait to See You Smile
