Your smile is one of your most powerful assets, but what if you don’t love your smile? You can achieve a red-carpet-ready smile quickly with porcelain veneers — and they’re available at Dr. Darj Dental. Not only do veneers deliver a Hollywood smile, but giving yourself a smile makeover can boost your self-esteem, too.
Ready for a dazzling smile? Mehrnoosh Darj, DDS, has created this guide to highlight the benefits of veneers.
A smile fit for Hollywood
If you’re unhappy with your smile, there’s no shortage of cosmetic dental services to enhance it. Professional-grade teeth whitening, bonding, and crowns are just a few examples of dental procedures that can improve the look of your smile.
Hollywood smiles — noted for their brightness and perfection — are often achieved with another cosmetic procedure: veneers. These thin shells of porcelain are bonded directly to the front surfaces of your teeth. Going beyond teeth whitening treatments, veneers can lighten the shade of your teeth and correct other imperfections.
- Brighten your smile
- Hide minor imperfections, cracks, and chips
- Make the size and shape of your teeth more uniform
Veneers are completely customizable and are specifically designed to help you reach your cosmetic goals. This is why so many celebrities rely on veneers to achieve their dream smile.
What does the veneer process involve?
If you’re interested in veneers, there’s good news: You don’t need to wait months and months for your new smile. We can complete the whole process in one consultation and two subsequent appointments.
During your consultation with Dr. Darj, you discuss your aesthetic goals. Do you wish your teeth were whiter? Are you bothered by a small chip? Dr. Darj can explain the process to you and make sure veneers are the right procedure for you before proceeding.
After your consultation, you have two appointments:
- First, we prepare your teeth by etching the enamel to accommodate the thin veneers and then take impressions so your veneers are crafted to fit precisely
- Second, we place your new veneers, firmly securing them with special dental cement and a curing light
Because veneers can address so many dental issues at once, they’re an efficient way to improve your smile. Scheduling individual whitening, bonding, or crown treatments, could be time-consuming and costly. With veneers, you can check off multiple boxes quickly.
Caring for veneers
Not only is the process for receiving veneers easy, it’s also easy to keep your Hollywood smile dazzling. While veneers can last 10 years, many last longer with the proper care.
Although it’s tempting to think that a harder brush scrubs better, it’s best to use a soft-bristled toothbrush on your teeth and veneers. Brush twice a day for a full two minutes. Additionally, adopt other veneer-friendly habits like avoiding chewing on non-food items, biting your nails, or chewing ice.
