Smile Designing and Veneers

Smile Designing and Veneers

Do you laugh freely or are always conscious of how your teeth look?

It is said to be not able to flash a smile whenever you want. 

What if your teeth have gaps, stains, or are mismatched?

You think ten times before you laugh and mostly cover your face before doing so. Well, you don't need to fret anymore. 

Dental veneers can help you get an instant makeover and give you back the confidence to laugh freely.

Dental veneers are used in smile designing and also for addressing several problems with your teeth. 

What is Smile Designing? 

A smile design is a dental procedure that mostly uses veneers to artistically create straighter, whiter, perfectly aligned, beautiful and natural-looking teeth.

It enhances appearance regardless of the actual state of your natural teeth and also restores dental health.

Use of Veneers in Smile Design

The use of porcelain veneers in solving esthetic as well as functional problems proves to be a valid option, especially for the anterior zone.

When the patient does not want orthodontic treatment, veneers are a reliable treatment alternative to modify the appearance, position, and form of teeth to create the perfect smile.

Porcelain veneers are simply bound to the natural teeth for a quick makeover with minimal tooth preparation.

The Procedure 

The first stage is a consultation with your dentist at Kirkland Premier Dentistry to understand your cosmetic goals and formulate a treatment plan to resolve the fundamental issue.

We also urge patients to get photos of their younger days or their favorite tooth structure so that we can design a smile according to expectations.

The treatment process is planned in such a way so that a minimum number of dentist visits are required.

Also, if there is an occasion or function before which you want the treatment to be complete, it is taken into account so that your treatment is over by then.

If there are other oral diseases or cavities to be addressed, it is done first. 

All cases are different, and we create a tailored smile design that is perfect for you.

Commonly Combined Treatments

While some cases of smile design only require porcelain veneers, others may also need crowns.

Certain patients have missing teeth in the smile zone. This can be corrected with either a porcelain bridge or an implant with a crown.

If more than one tooth is missing in the anterior zone, multiple implants or dentures are fixed to obtain the required design.   

Some smiles are too gummy. It means too many gums are visible or are irregular. We recommend gums lift with laser technology to reduce the visible gum tissue.

If all the teeth are not getting entered, then the others are whitened to blend the pigments before proceeding with the makeover design.

How do I know I am Eligible for Veneers?

You are a candidate for smile designing if you want to look younger. Yes! The enhancements can take years off your face and make you look younger.

You should go for porcelain veneers if you want to feel confident when you smile. You do not want to be hiding your teeth consciously when you are in a good mood for a hearty laugh.  

If you are a person who cares for your appearance and desire to invest in their dental health and aesthetics, designing with veneers is the option for you. 

Are you part of a profession where looks are important? Sometimes looks improve your chances of success in your career, especially in show business. 

Maybe you have to face the camera or be in the public eye often and you feel inhibited due to crooked or misaligned teeth. 

Smile design is a boon for people who want to get their confidence back and feel good in their own shoes.

If you are a health-conscious person and take care of your pearly whites with regular dental checkups and good oral hygiene, you are a candidate for smile design.
