Porcelain Veneers Oklahoma City Cosmetic Dentist

Have you ever found yourself dissatisfied with your oral healthcare?ᅠ If you have stained or discolored teeth, chipped teeth or teeth that are just misaligned there have always been dental treatments available that would be able to repair them. However, for decades, the dental industry operated under the assumption that fixing these problems should be the only priority, but while repairing these dental problems should obviously be the biggest priority, often these dental solutions led to larger short-term problems; peoples smiles looked worse with the dental solutions than they had before. Think back to being a kid and noticing your classmate who just had braces, sure their teeth would look better in the long run, but in the short term, they just looked bad.

Fortunately, there has been a rise within the dental industry and the cosmetic dentistry field has become a prominent part of the field. Cosmetic dentistry is dedicated to improving the visual beauty of a patient's smile and has produced a number of dental procedures that solve dental problems without the short-term discomfort of having an even worse smile than before.ᅠ As a result, people are turning to cosmetic dentists for their dental problems.

For the countless individuals who suffer from stained, crooked or chipped teeth dental problems cosmetic dentists are now able to fix these problems with one of the most common cosmetic dental procedures around: porcelain veneers.ᅠ Also known as dental porcelain laminates and dental veneers, porcelain veneers combines a dental bonding procedure with wafer-thin shells of porcelain that have the appearance of natural, white teeth. In the porcelain veneer procedure the cosmetic dentist bonds wafer-thin shells of porcelain to the front side of the patient's tooth or teeth, depending on the severity.ᅠ What results is a healthier and more natural looking tooth.

The inherent appeal of porcelain veneers lie in its natural appearance.ᅠ Prior to porcelain veneers, the materials used in dental bonding would not look natural at all. Due to a natural tooth's translucency, which means that when light strikes the tooth's surface it will penetrate into the thickness of the enamel, older presentation methods made peoples teeth look fake. Prior dental bonding materials would become immediately noticeable, as light would be immediately reflected off the bonding material.ᅠ Porcelain veneers are glass-like, which means that when light bounces of a tooth treated with porcelain veneers, it will have the same penetrating effect of a natural tooth and give a person's smile that real life look and feel.

Additionally, porcelain veneers have the benefit of not staining or discoloring.ᅠ This is great news for people that enjoy drinking red wine, smoking cigarettes or drinking coffee and tea. The smooth surface of porcelain ensures that the surface of a porcelain veneer won't pick up permanent stains.

While porcelain veneers are one of the most common cosmetic dental procedures, it is extremely important that a patient obtains this procedure from a highly qualified cosmetic dentist.
