For many people, the small they have is not the smile they want. So if you're unhappy with the way your teeth look, you're in good company. Even minor cosmetic imperfections can make people feel self conscious and uncomfortable in social and professional situations, which can take a toll on self esteem, personal and professional development, and quality of life. But you don't have to spend a fortune or undergo intensive and invasive dental treatment to fix your teeth and get a smile you love and feel proud to show off. Dr. Rick Harrison, a dentist in Jacksonville Beach, FL, offers porcelain veneers and other cosmetic dentistry services to improve your smile and oral health.
Porcelain Veneers in Jacksonville Beach, FL
A dental veneer is bonded directly onto the surface of a tooth and molded to change the size or shape. They can correct a number of common cosmetic imperfections, making them one of the most common and accessible cosmetic dentistry procedures available. You won't have to undergo major dental work; the dentist simply takes an impression of your teeth to create the mold for the veneers. In some cases it may be necessary to remove a thin layer of enamel from the tooth to make room for the veneers.
What Porcelain Veneers Can Do
Porcelain veneers can correct a number of minor to moderate cosmetic imperfections such as:
- Chips and cracks
- Stains and discolorations
- Gaps and spacing
- Change tooth size or shape for aesthetic improvement
Many people also find that veneers also serve as an incentive to improve everything from their oral hygiene routine, to diet and lifestyle changes like quitting smoking. With adequate care, veneers can last an average of five to ten years or longer.
