What if we told you it was possible to get a new smile in just two visits to our Panama City office? What if we told you it would be a pain-free method with minimal invasiveness? And what if we told you that it could fix a huge number of cosmetic flaws that have been bothering you for years?
You might not think it’s possible, but it is. At Panama City Smiles we perform a number of different cosmetic treatments, but none is as simple and fast-acting as porcelain veneers. If you’re thinking that veneers aren’t natural looking or realistic think again – the veneers of the modern era are a truly transformative way to beautify your smile.
What Are Veneers?
Think of a wooden veneer – it’s a thin piece of good looking finish that’s placed over rougher work to provide an amazing look. A dental veneer is a lot like that: we use ultra-thin porcelain to place new fronts on your teeth that completely change their appearance.
Veneers are designed to transform your smile in the easiest way possible: by recreating your teeth with customized porcelain shells that we attach to them after a bit of prep work. All it takes is an appointment to do some minor preparation to the surface of your teeth, and then a second appointment to attach your new veneers. That’s it – no hassle, no pain, and no wait.
What Can Veneers Treat?
If you’re wondering what exactly veneers can do you may be surprised. A lot of patients come to our office hoping to find a solution to what they see as serious flaws in their teeth, but they never consider veneers as a possibility.
Once we tell them what veneers are capable of they’re thrilled – who wouldn’t want to eliminate years of embarrassment at their teeth in just two weeks? You would be a great candidate for veneers if you want to eliminate:
- Stains that won’t bleach out
- Gaps between your teeth
- Excess tooth wear
- Teeth that are too short
- Malformed teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Teeth that are different sized than the rest
In short, if it’s a cosmetic flaw veneers can probably fix it.
Why Choose Veneers?
For most patients it’s simply a matter of not having time to wait for orthodontics or other treatments to do their work. Whether you have a pressing family obligation, a new job, or any other reason to want to look your best veneers can do it.
Other patients choose veneers because they are one of the most affordable ways to transform your smile. Orthodontic treatments and other forms of cosmetic dentistry can be expensive, but veneers are cheap in comparison. Why pay for treatments you don’t necessarily want or need when you can get the look you want so easily?
Do Veneers Look Fake?
In decades past dental porcelain wasn’t anywhere nearly advanced as it is now. To make veneers strong enough to last very long they had to be thick, which led to them also looking fake.
Modern dental porcelain is far thinner than it used to be, which means that modern veneers look much more realistic than they used to. New porcelains are also designed to be semi-translucent, which helps them maintain a more natural look. Trust us – no one will be able to tell your teeth aren’t naturally perfect.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
With proper care your veneers can last for ten to fifteen years. They’re tough, resist stains, and are secured to your teeth with incredibly strong dental cements. The only thing that’s going to damage veneers is the same things that would damage natural teeth!
Caring for veneers is simple, too. It doesn’t require any more work than normal brushing and flossing to keep veneers in good shape, which means you won’t need to do any extra work to keep your perfect new smile looking great.
