Many people feel self-conscious or embarrassed of their smile. A lifetime of wear and tear often leaves our teeth stained and even damaged. Other times, our smile can be misaligned or filled with unsightly gaps between out teeth. Do you ever wish you could have a perfect smile? Fortunately, a dental procedure exists that allows your Rochester dentist, Dr. Gilly Calcagno, to completely rejuvenate your smile. In today’s blog, Dr. Calcagno discusses the benefits offered by dental veneers.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of special dental ceramic. Veneers can be custom shaded and shaped to repair and correct a patient’s smile. Veneers can address damage from chips or cracks. In some cases, veneers enable Dr. Calcagno to provide “instant orthodontics,” in which she can mask misaligned teeth and even close those embarrassing gaps between your teeth. Dr. Calcagno offers patients several different types of dental veneers for their smile restoration.
Made of special dental porcelain, these veneers offer a popular method of smile renewal. The first step involves Dr. Calcagno preparing the surface of your teeth. Extremely thin layers of enamel must be removed to make room for your new veneers. Dr. Calcagno will then take an impression of your teeth, which will be sent to a lab where an expert ceramist will create your custom veneers. With breakthrough CEREC technology, Dr. Calcagno can also provide the option of creating and placing your veneers in a single visit without the use of an off-site lab. Dr. Calcagno simply takes photos and x-rays of your teeth, which are used to make a 3D image. This image is uploaded into the CEREC machine, which instantly crafts your veneers to Dr. Calcagno’s specifications. In both cases, the veneers are applied to a patient’s front teeth using a powerful bonding agent.
Other Veneer Options
Dr. Calcagno also gives patients the options of restoring their smiles with Lumineers or Durathin veneers. Trained by the creators of these state-of-the-art veneers, Dr. Calcagno offers patients unrivaled expertise. Unlike porcelain veneers, these veneers don’t require the loss of tooth structure. Lumineers and Durathins provide many of the same advantages, while preserving your natural teeth.
