Your smile is one of the most powerful assets that you have. Think about the way that you personally react when you see someone who has an attractive smile. You are drawn to them. Their smile can make you feel at ease. By contrast, when you see someone with a crooked smile, missing teeth, or stained teeth, it negatively impacts the way you view the person. All of us would like to say that it doesn’t affect us, but a bad smile will either consciously or unconsciously make you view the person in a worse light. This underscores how important having an attractive smile really is. Fortunately, those who are self-conscious about or uncomfortable with their smile can flash their pearly whites with confidence with porcelain veneers.
When determining whether or not you should use porcelain veneers on your teeth, it is good to learn a few facts about them. For example, porcelain veneers are considered to be a permanent form of treatment. The entire procedure takes place over the course of two visits. During your first visit, Dr. Sohl will prepare your teeth for temporary veneers. These temporary veneers, which will be adjusted to fit your smile perfectly, will allow you to see what your new smile will look like while your permanent set is being created. They will also let you decide if Dr. Sohl should make any changes to your permanent set.
Your permanent set will be personally crafted for you with light-reflecting porcelain, a material well-known for looking just like natural tooth enamel. In fact, it is so convincing that once you have received your permanent porcelain veneers, no one will be able to tell the difference. You will simply look like you have a naturally beautiful set of teeth.
One of the best things about porcelain veneers is that for many people, the process does not require the use of a local anesthetic. That being said, if you’re nervous, then you can talk to Dr. Sohl about your options.
Dr. Sohl will strive for perfection with your porcelain veneers. To do this, he will personally decide the size and dimensions of your veneers to match your face. This ensures that not only will they look good in general, but they will look especially good on you. Porcelain veneers are also extremely strong. They are designed to stand up to whatever force you exert against them while eating a normal diet. In other words, they are designed to function like normal teeth.
