When you smile or laugh, it’s become second nature for one of your hands to come up and cover your teeth. In most pictures, you tend to give a toothless, cheeky smile or avoid taking them all together. You know the kind of smile where the photographer peeks around the camera and says, “Come on! Give us a real smile!” You shouldn’t have to hide your teeth because you’re less than confident about how your smile looks, especially if you choose to visit the office of Dr. James Kalina. Dr. Kalina can fix even the most severe flaws in our patient’s smiles with porcelain veneers in Mankato! With extensive experience in the dental field, our office understands how important it is to have a beautiful, healthy smile. We can’t wait to help restore your confidence!
What exactly are porcelain veneers?
If you need a customized dental solution to fix the flaws in your smile, porcelain veneers may be right for you. This cosmetic procedure is composed of thin shells of high-quality dental material. They’re shaped to your liking and attached to the front surfaces of your teeth to mask those pesky imperfections. After examining your teeth, Dr. Kalina will use his fine attention to detail and abundant resources to measure the various aspects of your face and mouth. This helps him to formulate the appropriate size and shape of your veneers.
This entire process is to make sure your veneers match your face and jaw structure to gain the results that you’ve been dreaming of. One of the most popular aspects of getting porcelain veneers is that they faithfully replicate your natural tooth’s color all at the same time being stain-resistant! People won’t be able to tell you had dental work because they will look like a naturally beautiful smile.
Am I a suitable candidate for porcelain veneers?
When you see your teeth, what is the first thing you notice? If you answered something negative about your teeth, then it’s time to act and fix them. If you have any doubts about the appearance and even the function of your teeth, porcelain veneers may be a great cosmetic decision for you. Porcelain veneers can mask multiple flaws at the same time including:
- Unusually shaped teeth
- Short/Eroded teeth
- Irregularly spaced teeth
- Damaged enamel
What is it like to get porcelain veneers from my cosmetic dentist in Mankato?
Fixing your smile with porcelain veneers just takes a couple visits to our office—even after your first dental appointment, you’ll leave with a temporary set of veneers. After you have had the chance to meet with Dr. Kalina, he will start by buffing small portions of your tooth enamel so that the veneer shells have room to seamlessly fit over your natural teeth. An impression will be made of your teeth and sent to a lab to have your permanent veneers created. You will wear a temporary pair until the following visit with us, leaving our office with confidence already!
Once your permanent veneers are complete, we will use a composite resin to solidify the bond between the veneers and your teeth. You are then ready to show off your smile to all your friends and family! With practical, common dental care and regular visits to our office, your veneers should last you years.
