Alex Bell Dental in Centerville, OH, can craft your perfect smile with porcelain veneers
Do you keep your lips sealed when you smile? Porcelain veneers can help you achieve glamourous teeth in as little as two visits. Dr. Cobb offers patients in the Centerville, OH, area porcelain veneers to restore their teeth and give them confidence in their smiles.
A versatile treatment that can fix a whole row of teeth
Veneers are a thin, ceramic covering placed on the front of your teeth to improve their aesthetics. Dr. Cobb may recommend veneers for patients with intrinsic staining on their teeth that will not bleach out, or to address misshapen or broken teeth, small gaps, or even out the length of your teeth.
Some issues may require orthodontics or other interventions to address. Dr. Cobb will evaluate your teeth to make sure you are a good candidate for veneers. He will also take the time to learn what you like about your teeth and what you hope to improve, so he can design your veneers to preserve the unique aspects of your smile that you love. If you have issues such as tooth decay or gum disease, he will need to treat these first before preparing you veneers.
What to expect from your veneer procedure
Dr. Cobb will use a grinding tool to remove some of the outer layer of your tooth enamel to make room for the veneers. Dr. Cobb will use a local anesthetic to ensure the entire process is painless. Once your teeth are prepped, you will make impressions of your mouth by biting down on dental molding. You will need to keep your teeth in place for a few moments to ensure the dental lab has an accurate mold for designing your restoration.
The lab will have your new veneers ready within a couple of weeks, and you can return to have them placed. Caring for your veneers is no different from taking care of the rest of your teeth, and with proper oral hygiene they can last for 15 years or longer.
