This is one way to quickly get that beautiful smile.
Did you know that on average the sun shines 229 days out of the year in Daytona Beach? Now that’s something to smile about! However, if some of your teeth are in bad shape, then you may be reluctant to share that smile with all the other lucky people living in Daytona Beach. Dr. Lloyd and his team at Indigo Dental can take care of that with porcelain veneers. In just two conveniently scheduled appointments, we can give you a smile that is as magnificent as a sunny day in Florida!
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers have been a staple of cosmetic dentistry for several decades. In simple terms, they are paper-thin layers of dental porcelain that Dr. Lloyd adhesively bonds to the front of teeth that show when you smile. Veneers are individually designed and handcrafted, because each one is tailored to fit a specific tooth. This way, you’ll never need to worry about having a smile that looks like it’s made of identical blocks of porcelain. Your teeth look natural and so does your smile.
What do Porcelain Veneers Conceal?
Porcelain veneers can cover up many different types of smile imperfections. In fact, veneers have a nickname—instant orthodontics. Not that they have anything to do with braces, but they can be used to make a slightly crooked tooth look straight. Other imperfections that porcelain veneers conceal include:
- Chipped, cracked and broken teeth
- Teeth that are misshaped
- Teeth that are too small
- Teeth with wide gaps between them
How Do I Get My Porcelain Veneers?
The process begins with a consultation. You and Dr. Lloyd will meet to discuss what needs correcting. Your input is vital to a successful outcome. After all, we want your smile to make you completely happy. To help achieve this, you’re welcome to bring photographs of people who have smiles that you admire. Although Dr. Lloyd will create veneers that fit you, the characteristics of a smile you love can often be incorporated in the design.
After making sure your teeth and gums are healthy, we’ll take x-rays, photographs and impressions of your teeth that Dr. Lloyd will use to make sure your veneers are the right size and shape for your mouth. Then, a thin layer of enamel is removed from each tooth that will have a porcelain veneer. This is a permanent alteration to your teeth. While our lab creates your new smile, we’ll give you temporary acrylic veneers to protect your teeth.
When your permanent veneers are ready, you’ll return to Indigo Dental to have them bonded to your teeth. With proper oral hygiene, regular dental checkups and little extra care—avoid biting hard foods and other objects with your veneers—you can look forward to your porcelain veneers giving you years and years of sunny smiles!
