You’ll be able to confidently flash your smile wherever you go, making undeniably impressive first impressions (and second or third) on everyone you meet. Plus, veneers can improve your oral functionality by correcting your bite and fixing any spacing or alignment issues, which may grow worse or hinder proper cleaning efforts and lead to decay.
So, if you’d like to learn more and explore your options, get in touch with us today at R. Asher Henegar, D.D.S., P.A. in Colorado Springs, CO.Our expert team, led by Dr. Asher Henegar, can make your dream smile an everyday reality.
When you get your beautiful porcelain veneers, they will change the shape of your real teeth and of your overall smile.
We must alter the shape of your teeth to properly place your porcelain veneers over their surface – think of them like a grand architectural façade that greets visitors with a stunning view. So, to properly fit and fasten your veneers, Dr. Henegar will carefully remove some of the enamel from your teeth to allow a secure, snug, and comfortable fit. As such, this procedure will correct your bite if you have any spacing problems or uneven or misaligned teeth. It will also conceal cracks, chips, and other signs of damage, decay, or wear-and-tear while preventing future deterioration.
Rest assured: this process will not adversely affect your teeth – quite the opposite. During your initial appointment, we’ll comprehensively check your teeth and all other dental tissues to create a personalized treatment plan just for you, taking into account your unique needs, history, and dental status.
This examination will also illuminate signs of decay, infection, or any other ailments and allow Dr. Henegar to pre-emptively treat any potential problems before they develop into even more troublesome ones. So if you have any questions, concerns, or want to learn more, contact our practice in Colorado Springs, CO today.
During your appointment, we’ll also take an intricately detailed impression of your mouth so we can seamlessly craft your set of porcelain veneers. Once they’re ready, we’ll gently shave down a bit of enamel from your teeth so we can securely bond them. Then you’ll be free to flaunt your lovely new smile and enjoy all the functional benefits of an even bite.
Since they’re made from porcelain, your immaculate, bright veneers are more stain-resistant than those made of other materials. Porcelain also uniquely catches the light, giving you an enviably luminescent, pearly smile. And with proper oral hygiene habits, your veneers could last for decades. However, to maintain their brightness, it’s recommended that you limit consumption of staining, acidic, and sugary foods and drinks. You can also extend the life of your veneers by avoiding any dentally destructive habits, like chewing on ice or nonedible objects.
If you’re unhappy with your smile or the status of your teeth, don’t wallow in negativity any longer. You can soon enjoy a relatively simple and virtually painless dental rejuvenation through a fabulous new set of porcelain veneers. Dr. Asher Henegar would love to help you achieve long-lasting dental health and happiness. And all you have to do to get started is contact us at R.
