Patients often come to us and want to change several things about their smiles, but do not necessarily want to spend years in orthodontics and drag out their treatment with dozens of visits.

Did you know that porcelain dental veneers could dramatically improve your smile in just a few dental visits? If you have crooked teeth, deeply stained teeth, or worn teeth, porcelain veneers may be the answer.

Dental Veneers Lafayette LAWhat Are Dental Veneers?

When you opt for veneers, we cover your old smile with a brand new, improved smile. Dental veneers are thin, shell-like covers we place over your natural tooth structure in order to cover unattractive or problem teeth. Demineralization, deep stains, crooked teeth, exposed dentin, chips, gapped teeth, and oddly shaped teeth all pose aesthetic challenges commonly solved by placing dental veneers.

Smile Makeover

When we create a smile makeover for our patients, we research what it is that they are looking for in their appearance. We also make sure that their veneers work well with their bites and are completely functional. Your veneers should match your facial features, gender, and look natural. It is possible to have a perfect Hollywood smile that looks complements your features in such a way that it looks like you were born with it.

How many veneers you need will depend on the shape of your smile. People usually need between six and eight veneers on the upper arch alone. This help to maintain a natural, seamless look. We customize each porcelain veneer just for you. They will have realistic colors and shading.

Making the decision to have dental veneers is a permanent one. In order to avoid a boxy appearance, we need to prep the surface of your tooth to make room for your dental veneers. That means we need to remove a small amount of your enamel, rendering the procedure irreversible.

In order to place dental veneers successfully, your gums and teeth must be in excellent condition. Maintaining exceptional oral hygiene and preventative care is essential to protect your dental investment.
