At Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS, we are known for walk-in appointments, weekend hours, and emergency care.
Because we are an urgent dental care provider, some of our patients don’t realize that we offer the full spectrum of cosmetic dental procedures.
In today’s post, we are going to highlight one of those services—dental veneers.
Have you ever wished your dentist could glue new pearly white covers on your existing teeth as quick and easy as you paint a wall in your house? Guess what? With porcelain veneers, it’s possible. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin tooth-shaped fronts that are permanently bonded to your natural teeth.
Unlike a crown procedure, your dentist does not need to remove tooth structure to place the restoration.
At Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS, veneers are used alone and in combination with other cosmetic dental procedures in complete smile makeovers. Because they can correct cosmetic tooth misalignment in one visit, veneers are sometimes described as instant orthodontics.
Do veneers look like natural teeth?
Skilled dental lab artists create porcelain veneers with the color, reflective properties, and translucency of natural teeth: perfect natural teeth, that is. In addition, porcelain veneers can be produced in any size or shape.
Are veneers strong?
Porcelain veneers are fabricated out of extremely durable material. If you have questions about whether a veneer or dental crown is the best choice for you, talk to Clint Blackwood. Dr. Blackwood will consider the size and condition of the tooth and its position in the mouth.
How long do veneers last?
Some smile makeover patients have veneers they received over 15 years ago. (And they still look great!) If properly cared for, veneers can last as long as dental crowns.
Are porcelain veneers affordable?
The cost of cosmetic dental veneers at Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS is competitive with other premium cosmetic dental practices in the Murray area. We use the top dental lab to create our veneers and a considerable portion of the cost goes to the lab. Porcelain veneers are often less expensive than crowns and orthodontia.
