Are you ready to find out about the many wonderful advantages that porcelain veneers can offer?
Cosmetic dentistry has truly come a long way over the decades. Whether someone is looking to make minor adjustments or major makeovers, our Jonesboro, AR, dentist, Dr. Emily Gairhan, has the treatments you’ve been looking for. Dental veneers have become such a popular cosmetic option because they can simply and painlessly change the color or shape of your smile through uniquely crafted porcelain shells.
When people think of veneers they may immediately picture big bulky restorations that will make your smile appear fake, but this is simply not true. Our Jonesboro cosmetic dentist knows exactly how to give you a beautiful smile through dental veneers that will look natural and attractive. Most people will not even know that you have veneers (unless, of course, you want to tell them!).
Getting veneers will mean that you will team up with Dr. Gairhan to figure out what issues you want to address with these cosmetic restorations and how you want your smile to look after treatment. Giving you a smile you are proud of is our goal and we can talk you through the entire process to make sure that you are getting exactly what you want.
Veneers are placed over the front of your teeth using a special dental cement. It usually takes anywhere from two to three visits to get your new smile. We take pride in the work that we do and so rushing to get your dental veneers done in just one visit just won’t give you the stellar results we know you are looking for. Fortunately, great things are worth the wait!
Once some enamel has been filed down from the front of your teeth we will need to take impressions of your smile. These impressions will provide a basis for our dental lab to help them create veneers that will fit perfectly over your teeth to hide imperfections like gaps, stains, cracks and other cosmetic issues.
Once your veneers are made, then it’s time to adhere them to the front of your teeth with special medical-grade cement. A laser is then used to harden the cement so that your veneers are permanently bonded to your teeth.
With the proper care, your veneers could last up to 10 years before needing to be replaced. That’s a long time to enjoy your beautiful new smile!
Getting dental veneers is pretty easy once you find out that you are an ideal candidate for treatment. Call Gairhan Dental Care in Jonesboro, AR, today to schedule your initial consultation. Let’s find out what dental veneers can do for you!
