There are not a lot of things that last from a run. You get the deep sense of satisfaction immediately afterwards, and maybe some soreness for a few days for your trouble. Occasionally, you get to run for a cause other than yourself, and this is where running can truly last. Firstly, the money you raise goes towards a worthy cause, and secondly, there is always someone ready to snap your photo as you cross the finish line. You have a fine collection of them at home, and you notice something as you’re looking at them all at once. While your smile may be big, your teeth could be better. They are healthy, but you just wish they looked better. You don’t have time to have a litany of procedures done, so what can you do? This is where porcelain veneers in Lincoln, NE could be your answer.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Rather than reconstructing an entire tooth, porcelain veneers simply cover them in order to help improve their appearance. They are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth. The porcelain itself will resemble the look and shape of natural teeth, as well as replicate the strength of your enamel. The thickness of the shells enables them be placed into the mouth easily and fit comfortably, so you can talk and eat like you always have.
What Can Veneers Do For Me?
Porcelain veneers can serve as a one stop shop, as they are able to cosmetically improve the shape, size, color, and spacing of your teeth. Other procedures can completely address one issue or another, but veneers are able to enhance all of them with just one procedure.
What Is The Procedure Like?
The process to get porcelain veneers is a virtually painless procedure that involves two basic steps. Firstly, Dr. Chris or Dr. Claire will gently remove a small amount of your enamel to make room for the veneers. After the veneers have been fabricated, they will be placed onto your teeth using a liquid resin to firmly bond them. They should feel like regular teeth when they are in your mouth. This process usually takes at least 2 visits with other dental practices, but we are able to accomplish it in one day thanks to our in-house CEREC technology, which uses advanced scanning software to construct your veneers. This can help save you time as well as ensure a better result. Afterwards, maintenance of your veneers is just like that of your natural teeth. Consistent brushing and flossing at least twice a day can keep them looking as bright as the day they were installed.
Are They Right For Me?
Veneers can be custom-made to provide a wide variety of results based on your goals. One of our hygienists, LaTasha, will even take the extra time to make sure your veneers match the color of the rest of your teeth. You can achieve anything from a subtle to a dramatic change in the appearance of your teeth.
