Did you have braces as a child? When braces are mentioned, do you flashback to the painful memories of soft tissue sores from your metal brackets? Don’t even mention the exhausting dental hygiene routine that your parents made you keep up. But to make matters worse, you never wore your retainer!
As you’ve matured, you’ve realized how much a straight smile can do for you and wish to correct it for good. There are many patients just like you who want to improve their smiles as adults, but don’t want to deal with braces. That’s why your cosmetic dentist, Dr. James Kalina, offers an alternative option for patients that want a straighter smile: porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers make teeth appear straighter without shifting them!
Porcelain veneers are much more convenient than undergoing a full orthodontic treatment. Veneers are thin sheets of dental porcelain that fit over the front of your teeth for a permanent fix to the most embarrassing flaws in your smile.
After examining your teeth, Dr. Kalina will consider your facial features and how they relate to your smile. This helps him to formulate the appropriate size and shape of your veneers and helps you reach your smile goals.
Did you know that you can fix so much more than a crooked smile with porcelain veneers? You can cover these flaws, too:
- Irreversible stains
- Chipped teeth
- Worn teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Uneven spaces and gaps
Reap the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Yes, there are several ways available to fix a crooked smile. But, what makes porcelain veneers from Dr. Kalina stand out from other procedures?
- They’re strong and long-lasting.
- They have a natural-looking surface that mimics natural teeth so they don’t look “fake”.
- Veneers require less enamel removal than other cosmetic procedures.
- They’re stain resistant.
- Every veneer procedure is customized to each patient’s needs.
Caring for Your Porcelain Veneers is Easier than Braces
Just like your natural teeth, smiles that have been improved with veneers still need gentle brushing and flossing every day. If you don’t maintain good dental health after your procedure, your veneers could become damaged and your natural teeth could still experience dental problems.
Thankfully, taking care of your teeth at home is much easier with veneers compared to traditional braces. Simply brush and floss your teeth as normal to maintain good oral health.
Keeping your regular dental appointments with Dr. Kalina is also critical. As tough as porcelain veneers are, they still need special attention from a dental professional. Dr. Kalina examines your teeth to be sure your veneers are staying stable. They will be professionally cleaned and maintained by his hygiene staff.
