Porcelain Veneers for a Beautiful Smile

Dental Veneers by New Orleans Cosmetic Dentist Experts

If you are searching for a beautiful flawless smile, you may consider porcelain veneers as a cosmetic dental option. Oak Family Dental has the experience and technology to deliver award winning smiles from their two New Orleans area offices – Metairie and Mandeville.

Porcelain veneers can dramatically enhance the appearance of teeth. They can cover up a variety of imperfections, such as stains, discolorations, chips, cracks, and minor misalignments. Veneers can create a beautiful, symmetrical, and uniform smile, giving individuals more confidence in their appearance.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are essentially a thin layer of ceramic (porcelain) that adheres to the outer layer of your teeth. They are custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly, so every size, shape, and color is tailor-made to fit the person getting them.

Although a number of people get porcelain veneers for cosmetic purposes, they are also an incredible solution to restore the natural beauty of your teeth without going through other invasive dental procedures.

Why Choose Oak Family Dental for Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are used to camouflage a variety of tooth flaws including discoloration, small chips, small gaps between teeth, misshapen teeth, size or shape discrepancies, and gummy smiles. These translucent dental restorations are worn by many of your favorite celebrities.

Who are the Best Candidates for Veneers?

Knowing this, are you thinking about getting veneers yourself? Before taking that step, you need to find out whether you’re a good candidate or not.

While many people are eligible for veneers, it’s not made for everyone. Generally, dental veneers are a great solution if you want to correct some minor irregularities or flaws in your smile. These can include:

  • Closing the gap between your teeth
  • Brightening and whitening your teeth
  • Hiding chipped teeth
  • Straightening slightly crooked teeth
  • Addressing tooth staining
  • Restoring the natural shape of your teeth

However, if you are suffering from teeth clenching or teeth grinding, getting porcelain veneers might not be the right move for you. Teeth grinding — also known as bruxism — can damage your dental veneers and lead to chips and fractures in your teeth. Likewise, if you have a habit of chewing your nails, or using chompers, you may be eligible to get veneers.

To determine if you are a candidate, the first step is to schedule a consultation with Oak Family Dental.

What is the Process of Getting Dental Veneers?

Once you’ve decided to get veneers, it only takes around two visits to the dentist to get this treatment.

The first visit involves consultation with your dentist and the initial dental work. This can include general cleaning, filling cavities, or getting implants. During the first visit, your dentist will also remove a thin layer of enamel from your teeth to prepare it for the molding process.

After prepping your teeth, the dentist will get impressions. These will be the basis of your veneers.

As you wait for your veneers to get made, the dentist will fit you with a temporary restoration. Take this time in-between appointments to consider whether you’re happy with the color and shape of your temporary veneers.

On your second visit, when you’re satisfied with the final veneers, it’s time to remove the temporary restoration and place the permanent veneers with a bonding glue. You’ll leave the dental clinic with a brand new smile!

Our goal at Oak Family Dental is to make the entire experience as seamless and straightforward as possible. As such, we utilize state-of-the art equipment in our Metairie and Mandeville dental offices. What’s more, we have skilled technicians on site you can easily communicate with to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. After all, we want to give you perfect results every time.

What are the Lasting Benefits of Veneers for Teeth?

One of the biggest advantages of getting veneers is the incredible difference in your smile. After walking out of our dental office, you will have brighter and straighter teeth that can boost your confidence for years to come.

Because veneers are made with durable materials, they can last for years — even decades. In addition, they’re resistant to tooth staining, which means you can enjoy white teeth for longer.

Since this is a quick and immediate procedure, there’s also no recovery time required. We can place your veneers in one appointment without any need for anesthesia or local numbing agents.

Schedule Your Dental Veneer Consultation

There’s no doubt that the results of veneers before and after are staggering. You can see the difference and enjoy the benefits immediately. So, if you want to take this next step and proceed with this cosmetic procedure, schedule a consultation at our dental offices at Metairie and Mandeville.
