Lapalco Family Dental : Porcelain Veneers in Marrero, LA
Porcelain veneers can transform any smile into a celebrity smile. In fact, your favorite movie star is probably wearing them. Top Marrero, LA cosmetic dentist Dr. CJ Landry offers veneers procedure to change the appearance of your teeth completely and as part of a full smile makeover.
A porcelain veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that is cemented to the front of a tooth – think of them as “false fingernails” for your teeth. The procedure is done to cover surface imperfections that range from teeth that are too large or small to severe discoloration. Porcelain veneers are also great for closing gaps or spaces between teeth and covering up fractured, chipped, or worn teeth. Veneer can be applied on one tooth or several teeth simultaneously.
What is veneer? Veneer can be made from other materials, but porcelain is considered superior because it behaves just like real enamel. Porcelain is translucent and reflects light the way real teeth do. Porcelain is also highly resistant to stains from wine, coffee, and bright-colored foods.
Anyone who has healthy teeth but wants a better smile can benefit from porcelain veneers. Because veneer application is a cosmetic procedure, your mouth must be generally healthy. If there is visible decay or gum disease, your dentist will treat these problems first before fixing appearance issues. The tooth enamel must also be thick and strong enough to withstand preparation. A bit of enamel will be removed to make room for the veneer and prevent a bulky, unnatural look.
