Posted · Add Comment

MatureLadySmHave you looked at your smile lately? Is it something you’re rather not do because your front teeth are stained, chipped, or not quite in the optimal position? As a busy adult, you have lots of things to fill your time. You probably put sprucing up your appearance on the back burner, telling yourself that you’ll “fix” your teeth later. Well, later is here. It’s time to perk up your smile with porcelain veneers, and Dr. James Oldham is the cosmetic dentist to do it!

Nonsurgical Makeover

Improving the appearance of your smile can have a dramatic effect on the way you look and the way you feel about yourself. Your confidence will soar when you look in the mirror and see a great smile. Porcelain veneers provide a great way to enhance your appearance without undergoing invasive surgery and a lengthy recovery time. A few appointments at our Smithfield dentist’s office is all it takes.

Porcelain Veneers 101

Simply put, a veneer is a covering for a tooth. Veneers can alter the size, shape, and color of teeth to make them more attractive. (Imagine getting to design your new smile!) Veneers can close small gaps between teeth and create optimal tooth alignment to eliminate the need for orthodontics.

The porcelain used to create custom veneers mimics natural tooth enamel. It reflects light and exhibits the same luminosity as your own teeth. However, the porcelain provides an advantage that real tooth enamel doesn’t: porcelain veneers won’t stain the way real teeth can. This means that your veneers will remain beautiful and lustrous for years.

Smile Design

To create your porcelain veneers, Dr. Oldham will talk with you about how you envision your new smile. He’ll walk you through the steps of veneer planning, creation, and placement and help you make decisions that are in line with your needs, budget, and expectations.

You’ll wear temporary veneers while a skilled artisan handcrafts your permanent ones. When your porcelain veneers are ready, the doctor will bond them in place to totally transform your smile.

There’s no Time Like the Present!
