Porcelain Veneers in St. Louis
If you are unhappy with the look of your teeth, porcelain veneers in St. Louis can create the perfect smile you've been dreaming of. Having veneers applied typically only takes two or three sessions with Dr. John Martin, and once they are applied, they can last for up to ten years with proper care.
What is a Porcelain Veneer?
Porcelain veneers, also known as dental veneers, or "laminates", are thin, molded pieces of porcelain that are custom-fitted and firmly bonded to the front of a patient's teeth. Porcelain veneers in St. Louis imitate the look and feel of a patient's natural teeth and can be dyed to match the natural color of their teeth.
It generally takes two or three sessions to get a porcelain veneer in St. Louis. During the process of getting a veneer, Dr. John Martin will assess your oral health and develop a treatment plan for your procedure. It's during this stage that your teeth are filed down and impressions of your teeth are taken for your veneer.
Once your veneer is created at a lab, it's shipped back to Martin Dental & Associates and ready for bonding. During the application of your veneer, Dr. John Martin will cement the porcelain veneer to your tooth and gently shave down the excess until a seamless fit is guaranteed.
A question that's often asked is, "what's the difference between a porcelain veneer and a crown?" Unlike crowns, porcelain veneers aren't designed to provide structure to your teeth. If your teeth are healthy, but you are unhappy with their appearance, porcelain veneers in St. Louis could be the right choice for you.
