We Offer Complete Smile Makeovers
At Independence Family Dentistry, we know your smile is not only essential to your physical health, but it is also a vital social tool. If the appearance of your teeth is holding you back from boasting a beautiful smile, you may benefit from porcelain veneers.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are ultrathin covers that mimic the color, shape and size of your natural teeth. They are applied to the fronts of teeth, and reflect light in a way that is comparable to natural tooth enamel. In addition, porcelain is a biocompatible material so it will not irritate your gums.
Porcelain veneers can enhance your smile by fixing the following cosmetic issues:
- Stains, dark spots, discolorations
- Cracks, chips, or lines in your enamel
- Broken, worn, or misshapen teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked or uneven teeth
What is the Procedure for Porcelain Veneers?
Dr. Nakhla may remove a thin layer of enamel so that your new porcelain veneers will fit well. You will receive temporary veneers to wear while your personalized molds are sent to one of our trusted dental labs, where they will be individually handcrafted and sent back to our Independence office.
At your final porcelain veneers appointment, Dr. Nakhla will prepare you for the final placement of your new smile. He may need to do additional adjustments to create the exactly the right shape. Then Dr. Nakhla will etch your teeth, add the permanent bonding agent, and place your veneers.
Independence Family Dentistry offers many cosmetic and restorative dentistry options for patients looking to upgrade their smiles. Request an appointment for your personalized smile consultation.
