- Posted on: Jun 15 2019
At NW Heights Dental, we encourage patients in and around the community of Portland, OR to find out how they can achieve a beautiful smile with cosmetic dentistry. While many think of the Hollywood elite and their attractive, flawless smiles, they may not realize that the same opportunities are available with a local dental practice. Dr. Keri Smith of NW Heights Dental are pleased to offer cosmetic dentistry solutions for patients that are beautiful and affordable, including porcelain veneers.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are special cosmetic facings that are custom-made for patients and bonded onto the front of the teeth to cover imperfections. These imperfections may include gaps between the teeth, misaligned teeth, chipped or broken teeth, or even permanently stained teeth. Porcelain veneers are created to match the existing teeth so they blend in seamlessly with the smile. They are also long-lasting and very affordable for patients to consider when enhancing and rejuvenating their look.
Who is a candidate for porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are available for any patients who have imperfections that can be covered on the front of the smile, typically on the anterior teeth. These teeth are the ones seen when patients interact with others through laughing, smiling, or speaking. Porcelain veneers are best placed on patients who have a healthy smile free from periodontal disease and tooth decay.
How do I obtain porcelain veneers?
The first step to getting porcelain veneers is a consultation appointment with a dental professional. The dentist will evaluate the smile and determine if veneers are the best solution. Then, preparations are made, during which the dentist will file down the front of the tooth prior to taking impressions. The molds of the teeth are used by a dental ceramist to fabricate the final restoration for the smile, which is later bonded onto the natural tooth to complete the process.
