Porcelain Veneers - Tampa Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry
Are you considering enhancing your smile with porcelain veneers? Veneers are a great solution to most cosmetic dental problems and an excellent way to boost your confidence by creating a beautifully aligned and natural-looking smile.
Dental porcelain is the ideal restorative material used to mimic the tooth's enamel. It's high durability, hardness, glassiness, translucence and high resistance to chemical attack are the properties associated with porcelain. Small or medium gaps between teeth, imperfections in tooth position, discoloration, poor shape or minor bite problems can be easily corrected to provide a dramatic improvement to your appearance. Porcelain veneers also correct teeth that have been worn due to grinding or fractured.
Before a patient can sucessfully begin receiving veneer treatment, a smile analysis will need to be performed. Simply make an appointment at our South Tampa dentist office to get started. The analysis will verify certain aspects related to the patient's dental health and tooth structure. Once these aspects are verified, the dentist will begin techniques to customize the appropriate sized teeth according to the patient's facial measurement formulae. Once the size and shape is determined, a computer imaging process is used to digitally replicate the patient's smile and then a wax mock-smile is created to make provisional teeth. This gives the patient the opportunity to partner with the dentist to evaluate the teeth.
