What Veneers Can Do For Your Smile
In the past, making significant cosmetic and functional dental improvements might have involved more invasive and artificial looking treatments. But modern dental technology has come a long way in recent years, and getting straighter, whiter and more symmetrical teeth has never been easier, or less invasive. Dr. Warren Gase, a Cincinnati, OH based dentist, recommends porcelain veneers for common cosmetic dental problems like chips, cracks, spacing and tooth discolorations and stains.
Porcelain Veneers in Cincinnati, OH
Veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic dentistry treatments available. Made of a razor thin layer of porcelain, a dentist will match the color and texture of the natural teeth to fix cosmetic imperfections, or to seal a tooth after a root canal. Veneers are incredibly durable and generally last at least ten years (often longer).
Teeth Whitening and Dental Veneers
Most people probably think of bleaching agents or special toothpastes when it comes to removing tooth stains. Although professional teeth whitening procedures are very effective in removing common stains caused by wine, tea, coffee, sauces, tobacco and other types of food like dark berries and soy sauce, stains caused by trauma or as a side effect of medication affect the dentin, and can't be removed with surface whitening agents. In such cases, Dr. Gase recommends veneers to cover existing stains, and to make the teeth a little more resistant to staining in the future.
A New Smile with Your Old Teeth
Veneers make it possible to drastically improve the appearance and symmetry of our teeth without invasive treatments. In some cases, a thin layer of enamel is shaved to ensure a smooth and natural looking fit for the veneer. Once in place, the porcelain can be molded for color, shape and length to fix most cosmetic imperfections.
