Cosmetic Porcelain Veneers
Depending on how you feel about your smile, improving its appearance might seem like a lot of work. Fortunately, our approach to cosmetic dentistry isn’t just to improve smiles, but also to provide minimally-invasive treatment to achieve optimal results with minimal tooth alteration. For many patients, a complete smile makeover can be completed with just a single procedure—custom-made porcelain veneers. Each veneer is hand-crafted according to the specific measurements of your tooth, and then bonded to its front surface to create a brand-new appearance. Using one or a combination of custom veneers, Dr. Olson can help you achieve a brand-new smile without having to completely overhaul your healthy tooth structure.
When to Schedule an Appointment
During your cosmetic consultation, Dr. Olson will carefully inspect your teeth and the issues that affect their appearance to determine if porcelain veneers are right for you. Because they completely revamp the visible structure of your teeth, veneers are often recommended for a variety of reasons, including severe tooth discoloration, worn or damaged teeth, excessive spaces between teeth, and minor cases of tooth misalignment.
Porcelain veneers work best when your teeth are cosmetically blemished but otherwise healthy. If you exhibit tooth decay or gum disease, then Dr. Olson will have to address the problem with a more involved restorative or periodontal treatment to restore your good oral health before performing cosmetic treatment.
