Incredible Results with Veneers in Lafayette
The Instant Smile Makeover
Ever wonder why movie stars and TV celebrities all seem to have bright, flawless smiles? Sure, some of them were blessed with great genes but, for the vast majority, a talented cosmetic dentist and a set of high quality veneers are the key to a million-dollar grin. Veneers refer to thin shells of durable, highly translucent dental porcelain that your dentist affixes to the front surface of your teeth. Veneers are incredibly strong, look exactly like natural tooth enamel, and can correct a number of imperfections, including:
- Severely stained teeth that do not respond to traditional whitening systems.
- Misshaped teeth or teeth of uneven length.
- Gaps between teeth.
- Chipped teeth.
The Veneer Placement Procedure
Placing veneers requires two separate visits to Dr. Gina Liggio Maestri DDS. During the first appointment, Dr. Gina Liggio Maestri will prepare the enamel which allows the veneer to rest naturally along the gum line. Next, she will take accurate impressions of your teeth to serve as models for the skilled lab technicians who handcraft our veneers. At the second visit, Dr. Gina Liggio Maestri will ensure your veneers fit perfectly, make any adjustments necessary, and bond them permanently into place.
Are Veneers Right for Me?
While veneers offer unmatched beauty and durability, they may not be appropriate for every patient. Before proceeding with veneer placement, Dr. Gina Liggio Maestri will perform a thorough assessment of your teeth to make sure you have the enamel strength and good overall oral health to accommodate veneers. If Dr. Gina Liggio Maestri DDS determines that veneers might not be your best option, she can offer other cosmetic solutions, such as bonding, contouring, and even adult orthodontics, to help you reach your smile goals.
