Porcelain Veneers Are a Simple Way to Improve Your Smile

Do you have one or more stained, cracked, chipped, or misshapen teeth that prevent you from smiling with confidence? Maybe you have a large gap between your two front teeth that causes you to feel self-conscious enough to only smile with your lips. These minor cosmetic issues are common and easy to disguise with porcelain veneers in Huntsville, AL.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Also known as dental veneers or just veneers, porcelain veneers contain porcelain and composite materials. A veneer is a thin and see-through shell that adheres to the front of your tooth to cover your cosmetic problem.

You can expect your newly placed veneer to last between 10 and 20 years before requiring replacement. Your estimate will be on the longer side if you practice good oral hygiene and do not subject the treated tooth to unnecessary stress, such as using it to open containers or chewing on pens or pencils.

The Process of Getting a Porcelain Veneer

The first step in obtaining a veneer is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jayashree Srinivasan. She uses this time to get to know you better and understand your treatment goals. You will schedule another appointment after the consultation should you decide to go ahead with the procedure.

When you return to our dental practice, Dr. Srinivasan will numb the tooth she will be working on first. She then removes a small amount of enamel from the tooth to ensure that the veneer will remain affixed and blend in well with your other teeth. Next, she places an adhesive gel on your tooth and attaches the veneer to it. She may also use a curing light to speed up the drying process.
