How porcelain veneers from your dentist in Columbia, SC, can give you a new smile
Does your smile need a little freshening up? Is your smile dull and uninteresting? Is your smile compromised by chipped, cracked, or damaged teeth? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s time for you to discover the magic of porcelain veneers. They are the go-to treatment to give you a beautiful, flawless smile. Dr. Joel E. Johnson in Columbia, SC, offers porcelain veneer treatment to give you a new smile.
Porcelain veneers are thin, beautiful laminates of sparkling porcelain. These laminates are permanently cemented on to the front surfaces of your teeth. Veneer treatment is conservative, because Dr. Johnson only removes enough tooth surface to compensate for thickness of the veneers.
Porcelain veneers are a versatile treatment that will freshen up your smile by covering up many cosmetic and aesthetic issues with your teeth, including:
- Excessive tooth wear due to aging or grinding
- Chips caused by everyday wear-and-tear
- Cracks or fracture lines caused by trauma
- Discolorations due to medications or genetics
Veneer treatment may also be able to hide alignment issues including gaps between your teeth, or tooth overlap and tooth rotation. Dr. Johnson will discuss whether veneers are the right choice, or if conventional orthodontics are the best treatment for alignment issues.
Porcelain veneer treatment is a popular choice to refresh smiles because porcelain looks just like natural tooth enamel. It reflects light, so your new porcelain veneers will sparkle just like natural tooth enamel. Unlike natural tooth enamel, porcelain resists stains, so your smile will stay bright for years, even if you drink coffee or smoke.
If you need to refresh your smile, porcelain veneers can help. They can hide both minor and major problems with your teeth, giving you a smile that makes a statement.
