Des Moines IA Dentist Discusses the Advantages of Porcelain Veneers

nice smile 2Do you want to transform the smile you see when you look in the mirror? Would you like the transformation to be a quick one? If so, porcelain veneers may be the best option for you. Thin porcelain shells that attach to the front surface of teeth, porcelain veneers can renew a smile in just 2-3 dental visits. To learn about the many advantages of porcelain veneers, consult the list below provided by your Des Moines IA dentist, Dr. Steve Burds.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

  1. They are durable. Porcelain veneers are made out of a high quality dental porcelain. This material is strong and stain-resistant with the end result that with the proper care your new smile will last for many years to come. To care for porcelain veneers, brush and floss your teeth regularly and attend dental visits every six months.
  2. They look realistic. Porcelain veneers offer outstanding cosmetic results owing to the porcelain’s ability to mimic the way that light plays off of a natural tooth. This ability gives porcelain veneers a realistic sheen and makes them appear natural in a variety of lighting situations. Porcelain veneers also achieve a level of translucence that closely replicates natural teeth, making the veneers look even more lifelike.
  3. They offer a fast transformation. If you choose to receive porcelain veneers from your Des Moines IA cosmetic dentist, Dr. Burds, your smile restoration can be completed in 2-3 dental visits. During your initial visit, you will sit down for a consultation to discuss your smile goals and the design of your veneers. Dr. Burds will then take impressions of your teeth, which he will send to a ceramist, who will create your own personal set of veneers. Once the completed veneers have arrived, Dr. Burds will attach them to your teeth, and your smile transformation will be complete.
