Porcelain veneers can transform a less than desirable smile into something that you can be proud of, but unfortunately, not all cosmetic dentists are trained to give you a perfect grin.
If you have ever seen someone with a giant smile that just doesn’t look right, it may have something to do with the cosmetic dentist who placed their porcelain veneers.
Dr. Jack Ringer, an accredited Fellow with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry explains that porcelain veneers should be made to fit snugly against your own natural teeth. There should be no gaps, ledges or imperfections, however, not all fit like the should.
Some cosmetic veneers are too white or square making them look fake while others are not placed properly which can cause breaking, chipping and tooth decay. If dental veneers are not properly fitted, there could be gaps. Those gaps may be hard to clean making the area more susceptible to cavities.
Placing porcelain veneers does take some talent as grinding away too much of the enamel before bonding could cause the veneers to break free, as they can’t adhere properly. If not enough enamel is removed from the cosmetic veneers, which vary from extremely thin to as thick as a credit card, will make your teeth look bulky.
Porcelain veneers are permanent, but can be redone if needed. However, when proper care is taken, cosmetic veneers can last up to 20 years before they will crack or weaken.
Porcelain veneers are used to reshape worn out teeth, lengthen teeth or to close spaces between teeth. Dr. Ringer also uses cosmetic veneers to realign your bite and to brighten a smile. Dr. Ringer has been properly trained to design, produce, and fit porcelain veneers giving you the confidence you need to give you the movie star grin that you have always wanted.
