What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Today, span cosmetic dentistry includes any treatment that enhances the appearance of your smile. In fact, many aspects of general dentistry now consider cosmetic and comprehensive health outcomes. It’s a big benefit to you, and it is how Dr. Jayne likes to work.
One of the most popular choices for smile makeovers is veneers. Many patients choose veneers because they offer improved form and function.
Veneers are a beautiful, and natural choice for smile enhancement. Porcelain veneers are the most popular choice because they are both durable and good looking. Veneers can last 15 to 20 years with excellent home care and regular dental visits. Veneers, made of porcelain, have the same coloring and translucency as naturally beautiful teeth.
When creating your veneers, Dr. Jayne partners with you and uses the golden proportion method so that your refined smile compliments your face shape, skin tone, gum tissue and lips.
Enhancing your smile is a lot to consider. Having a detail-oriented, experienced cosmetic dentist like Dr. Jayne, working with you can make all the difference. It also helps to have a good sense of the options available for veneering in 2022.
Durable and stain-resistant, porcelain veneers most closely resemble natural teeth. Porcelain is a biocompatible, non-toxic material that naturally bonds with your body. Porcelain veneers are long-lasting and remain in place about 15 – 20 years.
Emprethin veneers are made of compressed ceramic and are an ideal option for patients who want the desired effects of orthodontics and Invisalign without the wait. They are ultra-thin and bring an idealized shape, pleasing angles and pearly opalescence to teeth.
Composite veneers are a cost-effective solution for those who want to cover up aesthetic problems without breaking the bank. They are made of resin that is matched to the exact color of your teeth. However, composite veneers do not last as long as other options and are more prone to staining and chipping.
