When you’re unhappy with your smile, it can affect your self-esteem and confidence. There’s nothing worse than hiding your smile because you feel embarrassed and ashamed of how your teeth look, even when they’re completely healthy.
If you’re lacking self-esteem because your teeth are discolored, chipped, or worn down, you can rebuild your confidence and a perfect smile by having porcelain veneers affixed here by Dr. Rafaat at Lansdowne & Herndon Smile Design.
Veneers can fix a whole array of flaws with your natural teeth.
Even when you take care of your teeth, normal wear-and-tear, accidents, and staining can occur along with natural imperfections that develop over time. There are many reasons why you may feel your teeth are flawed, including:
- chipped teeth
- discoloration and staining
- misaligned and uneven teeth
- unusually shaped and worn down teeth
Porcelain veneers are a great way to improve the appearance of your smile and require just a few visits with Dr. Rafaat.
Porcelain veneers are custom-made and will give you the perfect smile you want.
You know what your flawless smile should look like. You’ve envisioned a sparkling white shade on perfectly shaped teeth. That’s why veneers are the perfect option because they are custom-made to your exact needs and requirements.
Veneers are essentially a thin cover of porcelain that’s affixed to your teeth using a special adhesive. They are durable, resistant, and will last for many years when you care for them as you would your natural teeth with regular brushing and flossing.
One of the key benefits of veneers is that they look entirely natural. Being custom-made ensures that the color matches your existing teeth, and they can be shaped and trimmed down to flatter you most, fix any misalignment, and ensure you have the perfect smile that you’ve always wanted.
It takes just a few visits with Dr. Rafaat to create your perfect smile with veneers.
Your first step is to share with Dr. Rafaat what your ideal smile looks like. By communicating the changes you want to see and the flaws you want to fix, Dr. Rafaat can examine your teeth, take X-rays, and determine what veneers will be able to achieve for you.
During your second visit, Dr. Rafaat will take impressions of your teeth, which will be used to create the custom-made veneers. Dr. Rafaat will place replicas of veneers over your teeth to show you how your smile will be changed to ensure you’re happy before the impressions are sent to the lab and your veneers are made.
At this visit, Dr. Rafaat will remove a small amount of enamel from each tooth that will have a veneer. This ensures that the veneer can be fixed to your tooth with the adhesive and fit into place naturally within your current smile. Temporary veneers are fitted to protect your teeth while your veneers are being made.
During your final visit with Dr. Rafaat, he places your new veneers and makes any necessary adjustments before permanently securing the veneers using a special adhesive and light. Moments later, you’ll be admiring your stunning new smile in a mirror and feeling your confidence soar to an entirely new level.
