Are your teeth crooked, gapped, discolored or misshapen? If so, you may feel like you have to live with a less than perfect smile forever. Thankfully, nothing could be further from the truth. When you visit your dentist at Newmarket Dentistry, Dr. Richard Lee-Shanok, for veneers, you can get a brand new smile you will love to show off in no time!
What are Veneers?
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that your Newmarket dentist will attach right to the front of your teeth. Because veneers cover the visible portion of your teeth, any dental imperfections are covered up quickly and easily, leaving you with a beautiful, picture perfect smile instead.
What are the Benefits of Veneers?
Veneers offer a number of benefits that make them well worth looking into. Not only are they a fairly quick option, especially when compared to procedures such as dental implants or braces, they are a very versatile option as well. Veneers can be used to treat a wide number of dental imperfections, including crooked teeth, gapped teeth, misshapen teeth and tooth discoloration.
What is the Procedure for Getting Veneers?
As soon as you decide that veneers are right for you, the first step you will want to take is to call your dentist at Newmarket Dentistry to set up an appointment. At this appointment, Dr. Lee-Shanok will take x-rays of your teeth, examine your teeth and assess your overall oral health. If Dr. Lee-Shanok determines you are a good candidate for veneers, he will then shave your teeth slightly to make room for the new veneers and take impressions to send off to the lab.
Once your new veneers are ready, he will check the color, fit and shape to make sure the veneers are a good match. If they are, he will attach the new veneers to the front of your teeth with a special cement and light. If not, he will make adjustments as needed until the veneers look and feel great.
Whether your teeth are crooked, crowded, misshapen, discolored or all of the above, achieving the beautiful smile you've been dreaming of may just be quicker and easier than you know. Call Dr. Lee-Shanok at Newmarket Dentistry to find out how a couple of visits to your dentist may completely change your smile for the better. You'll be glad you did.
