A severely chipped front tooth
Sometimes the complete front of a tooth is damaged and needs to be built up or changed. A porcelain veneer could be a good choice. It will lay over the front of the tooth as a thin layer of porcelain. Doing this the length, shade, shape and alignment can be controlled.
Veneers typically require one or two appointments depend on the technique choosen. The amount of tooth change required, depends upon several factors such as the alignment, length, shape, spacing, and any discolorations in your natural teeth. Your teeth might be temporized depending upon your case. The case is sent to the lab, and at the second visit the veneers are tried in, cemented, and adjusted to fit your looks, style, and personality.
We can achieve a natural look with porcelain veneers because they are thin and there is no metal to be concealed. If and when your gums recede in the future, you will not have a dark gray line as was common with older porcelain crowns. We did our job well if no one notices our treatment. We want your porcelain veneers to look so good, you tell your friends you go to the Best Dental Office In Paducah.
