Have you ever wondered how celebrities achieve such perfect-looking smiles? In many cases, it’s much easier than you might guess! Many of these celebrities have porcelain veneers. This incredible cosmetic dentistry procedure leaves the patient with an absolutely stunning, perfect smile in no time at all! Dr. Jovanovic is pleased to offer porcelain veneers as one of the many services she provides to her patients from throughout The Woodlands, Conroe, Willis, and Spring, Texas area.
An Introduction to Porcelain Veneers
Veneers consist of an ultra-thin layer of porcelain dental material that is applied directly over the surface of the patient’s teeth. Although the layer is extremely thin, it’s remarkably strong and durable. In fact, veneers often last 10 years before they need to be replaced. And if they’re properly cared for, veneers can last up to twice that long!
The procedure is fast and virtually pain-free. Dr. Jovanovic begins by removing a tiny amount of the enamel on the teeth that will receive the veneers. After that, she applies the porcelain material to the teeth and uses a specially designed light to help harden the material. The results are nothing short of amazing!
Issues Resolved with Porcelain Veneers
When veneers are applied to multiple teeth, they can easily produce the celebrity smiles you see on TV and movie stars. But veneers also serve another important purpose: they resolve a variety of minor dental issues. These include cracked or chipped teeth, badly worn teeth, misshapen teeth and teeth with wide gaps in between. Since the porcelain material can be made to exactly match the color of your existing teeth, other people will never be able to tell the difference between a natural tooth and one that has a porcelain veneer.
Are You a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
As long as you are an adult in good oral health, you are probably a good candidate for porcelain veneers. But if you do have some type of dental issue – such as tooth decay or gum disease, for example – Dr. Jovanovic will want to address those problems before applying veneers. Remember that veneers are intended for adults and are not a suitable option for children. And you should know that getting porcelain veneers is considered an irreversible decision – meaning that once Dr. Jovanovic removes some of your existing tooth enamel in order to accommodate the veneer, that enamel layer never grows back and the tooth will always require a veneer.
