Written by Dr. Brace on Nov 11, 2013

Because your smile is such an integral part of your overall appearance, it is only natural that you want it to look as perfected as possible. The good news is that cosmetic dentistry treatments can effectively take your smile to the next level quickly and comfortably. Our O’Fallon cosmetic dentist is here to give you all of the information you need about cosmetic dentistry treatments, which is why today we are answering your questions about dental veneers!

Q: What exactly are dental veneers made out of?

A: Dental veneers are made out of porcelain, because porcelain is both luminous and durable. This means that once your veneers are applied to your teeth, they will be strong enough to stand up to the chewing and talking that you do in everyday life. At the same time, porcelain looks like natural enamel, so your veneers can blend with your existing teeth.

Q: Does it take a long time to have dental veneers placed?
A: No! In fact, one of the benefits of porcelain veneers is that they delivery results so quickly. In just two or three dental appointments you can perfect the appearance of your teeth and achieve a smile transformation. The first time we meet we will talk about how you want to improve your smile, and our dentist will make sure that you smile is healthy enough for treatment. In the next appointment we will prepare your natural teeth for veneers, and take an impression of the affected teeth. Then all we have to do is attach your final restorations, and you are ready to enjoy your new smile!

Porcelain veneers are an exceptional cosmetic dentistry treatment for many types of patients. If you think that you may benefit from dental veneers, feel free to reach out to our O’Fallon cosmetic dentist office for more information!
