When one or several of your teeth are chipped, cracked, or stained, it affects your appearance as well as the functionality of the rest of your teeth. This is also true when you have a wide gap between two of your teeth. Porcelain veneers, provide by Dr. Kevin Diep in Port Saint Lucie, Florida, are an easy way to disguise the imperfections and achieve the smile you want. The materials used to create porcelain veneers are so light and thin that you will probably forget you are wearing them after a while.
Why Get a Dental Veneer Made of Porcelain?
Dr. Kevin Diep prefers to work with porcelain veneers for several reasons. These include:
- Porcelain provides resilience and strength that is similar to your natural tooth enamel
- Porcelain veneers look the most natural compared to other types of materials used
- It’s easy to replicate your own natural tooth color and shape with porcelain veneers
A Complete Smile Makeover in Just Two Appointments
Compared to other types of cosmetic enhancements, getting porcelain veneers is a simple and nearly painless procedure. After a consultation with Dr. Kevin Deip, the next step is to come to his dental clinic for an exam. At this appointment, he also removes a tiny amount of enamel from the tooth or teeth receiving the porcelain veneers. This is necessary to ensure that the veneer will fit in place without protruding out further than the rest of your teeth. Dr. Kevin Deip takes personalized measurements and then sends your details to our dental lab.
When the lab returns your customized veneers in approximately two weeks, it’s time to come in for your final fitting. You will have the opportunity to look over the porcelain veneers to make sure that they match the color shade and shape that you desire. After applying the veneer to your front tooth surface with dental cement, Dr. Kevin Deip uses a laser to make sure that it hardens in place. As long as you don’t put unnecessary strain on your new veneer and practice good oral hygiene, it should be several years before you have to replace it.
