Just because you weren’t born with a movie-star perfect smile doesn’t mean you can’t get one. In fact, many of those perfectly straight, even celebrity smiles are likely a result of cosmetic dentistry such as a veneers procedure. The good news is that you too can get a beautiful smile through porcelain veneers.
Talk to your Chesterfield, MO dentist Dr. Robert Rahm if your teeth are crooked, chipped, or stained to find out if porcelain veneers are a good option for you!
Veneers—an Easy Way to Improve Your Smile
Veneers are thin translucent shells that fit over the fronts of your teeth. Veneers can camouflage a host of dental problems, including crooked teeth or teeth that are damaged. The porcelain used to craft the veneers looks very much like your tooth enamel, so your smile will look totally natural. In just a few dental appointments, your smile can be dazzling!
Veneers—the Way They Work
Because your teeth will need to be prepared for veneers, it is important to remember that veneers are a permanent treatment. A small amount of your tooth enamel needs to be removed to ensure the veneers fit properly.
With Dr. Rahm’s help, you will choose the color you would like for the veneers, and he will send a custom impression of your teeth to the lab so the veneers can be made. Once they are ready, they will be permanently bonded to your teeth. Dr. Rahm will make any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit.
Veneers—Caring for Them
Care for your veneers just as you do your natural teeth, with diligent brushing and flossing. Don’t use whitening toothpaste because the abrasives it contains could scratch your veneers. Be sure to visit your dentist twice each year for examinations and cleanings.
