Have you ever wondered how some people maintain an extremely bright, white smile? Do you think that celebrities with perfect teeth have special toothpaste or mouthwash that facilitates their beyond pleasant smile? Did you know that you could attain a smile like the ones seen in hollywood? Your Shrewsbury, MA dentist offers a cosmetic dental treatment that can take your smile from average to excellent in just a few visits. Discolored, oddly shaped, or abnormally spaced teeth can benefit from cosmetic alteration. Dr. Pizzi answers some frequently asked questions about dental veneers to inform the patient of their options when enhancing their smile with cosmetic dentistry treatments.
Question: What is a dental veneer?
Answer: A veneer is a thin, shell-like cover for the front surface of your teeth. Veneers are a cosmetic addition to your smile that corrects oddly spaced, abnormally colored, or inconsistently shaped teeth.
Question: How do dental veneers work?
Answer: Dr. Pizzi offers ceramic dental veneers that cover the front surface of your teeth. The veneers, once created and confirmed to fit correctly, are adhered to the patient’s teeth. The result is an evenly spaced, straight smile.
Question: How long does the dental veneer process take?
Answer: In most cases, dental veneers take no more than two visits. The first visit consists of a consultation to determine if you would be an ideal candidate for the treatment. If so, then Dr. Pizzi would take impressions of your teeth and send them to a lab. The ceramic veneers would then be created to custom-fit your existing teeth. The lab process usually takes about a week. Once the doctor receives your veneers, a second visit is scheduled for the placement of your cosmetic enhancement.
Question: Who is a candidate for dental veneers?
Answer: For most people that dislike the aesthetic appeal of their smile, veneers are a viable option. However, those that posses dental prosthetics or lack adequate enamel may be redirected by Dr. Pizzi towards more plausible cosmetic enhancements. The end result whether you receive veneers, or another cosmetic treatment is a brighter, more attractive smile.
Question: Are there other options to smile enhancement?
Answer: Yes, your cosmetic dentist, Dr. Pizzi, can discuss with you the plausible treatment options. Choosing another type of treatment all depends on the condition of your smile, and your Shrewsbury, MA doctor can determine what will work best for you.
