The secret is out! Many of the smiles you admire in movies and beauty magazines didn’t always look gorgeous. These celebrities discovered the power of porcelain veneers in transforming smiles. Dental veneers are customized, ultra-thin shells placed on the front teeth to mask chips, stains, and gaps. Once the veneers are in place, they subtly cover these imperfections, and no one will be able to tell you underwent a smile enhancement treatment unless you say so.
Don’t like the look of your smile? Don’t be “boxed into a cage” because of your imperfect smile. Instead, schedule a cosmetic consultation with Erik G. Grothouse, DDS, in Indianapolis, Indiana. Dr. Erik Grothouse has the technical expertise and artistry to design and place dental veneers with outstanding outcomes.
Dental veneers snugly fit on the visible portion of your tooth enamel to disguise dental imperfections. We love dental veneers because they can fix multiple flaws with just one treatment.
Dental veneers can:
So, you want your veneers to look and feel natural? No worries! We achieve this milestone by using carefully selected materials for superior outcomes. We also work closely with you during planning to tailor your treatment to your goals, lifestyle, and preferences. Our veneers consider personal goals, esthetics, and function to create a smile you’ll love.
While veneers can dramatically transform your smile and life, it doesn’t mean you need months and multiple dental appointments to benefit from this procedure. You only need to commit to two dental visits to enhance your smile with porcelain dental veneers.
The first step is to determine your eligibility for porcelain veneers through a comprehensive dental exam. If you are a prime candidate, we’ll proceed with enamel shaving. Modern veneers are super-thin, so we’ll only remove a microscopic amount of your tooth enamel, leaving much of your tooth’s structure intact.
After preparing your teeth, we take impressions of your teeth. Our technician will use these impressions to craft veneers that uniquely fit your smile.
When we get your new veneers, you’ll book another appointment with Dr. Grothouse for delivery. During this second appointment, we’ll try your permanent veneers and make adjustments, as necessary, until everything looks and fits naturally. Once all is set, we’ll use resin cement to secure your veneers in place.
You can opt for composite veneers if you want a quick, affordable smile transformation. These veneers are created from a mixture of plastic and finely grounded glass (composite resin) — the same material used to treat cavities.
Composite veneers don’t need as much enamel alteration — they are placed into the enamel. This non-invasive approach allows you to reverse the procedure or upgrade to porcelain veneers. Although composite veneers don’t last as long as porcelain veneers, they are a viable option when you need a cost-effective smile enhancement for minor flaws.
When placed by experts, dental veneers can transform your smile and life.
