Porcelain Veneers

porcelain-veneerCustom Porcelain Dental Veneers in Little Rock, Arkansas

Beautiful custom-made porcelain dental veneers, available at Smile Arkansas in Little Rock, Arkansas, are the standard that Dr. Wyant uses to create gorgeous smiles. Sometimes referred to as porcelain laminates, porcelain veneers are thin custom-made moldings of porcelain that cover the front of unsightly teeth. Porcelain veneers are used to correct a variety of imperfections, such as gapped or spaced teeth, worn or broken teeth, short teeth and crowded teeth. Porcelain veneers are often applied to our Little Rock, Arkansas, patients’ teeth in a technique referred to as “instant orthodontics,” where crooked teeth can be made to appear straight in just a matter of weeks.

You may have seen people with unnatural-looking dental work that is easily noticed. Perhaps their teeth are white but opaque and blocky looking, or maybe you have seen the tell-tale sign of dark metal showing between the porcelain and gum-line. We use these exceptional porcelain dental veneers because we want our Little Rock, Arkansas, patients’ smiles to appear so naturally beautiful that people will only assume they were born with beautiful teeth. To achieve this type of result takes the combined effort of two artisans; the cosmetic dentist and the master ceramist.

Customized Porcelain Veneers

The first step in fabricating porcelain veneers in our Little Rock, Arkansas, dental laboratory is for the cosmetic dentist to create a smile design that satisfies the patient’s own personal preferences and takes into consideration the patient’s facial type, lip contours, age, sex ,and personality. This is where artistry, science, training, experience, and technical knowledge merge. Dr. Wyant determines the shape, contours, thickness, and colors of our Little Rock, Arkansas, patients’ porcelain veneers. Natural teeth are not pure white, but rather a combination of subtle colors – sometimes yellow, blue, pink – and these vary throughout each tooth. Natural teeth also have a degree of glass-like appearance called translucency. Light is able to pass through natural tooth, especially along the edges, where the tooth is the thinnest. Dr. Wyant communicates the exact specifications for the ceramist to follow.

In Little Rock, Arkansas, the most beautiful, realistic porcelain veneers are individually hand-crafted by master ceramists. Each veneer is fabricated from layers of special tooth-colored porcelain and sculpted before it’s fired to create the most natural look possible. Like a beautiful painting when the individual components are magnificently crafted and blended harmoniously, you have a true work of art.

Benefits of Dental Veneers

Porcelain veneers can provide a more conservative alternative to traditional crowns.

They can eliminate unattractive gaps between teeth, mask stains, correct misshapen or crooked teeth in just a few visits. Depending on the craftsmanship of the porcelain veneers, as well as the quality of the work done, porcelain veneers can last indefinitely. Unlike dental bonding, porcelain veneers will not change color or shape over time if cared for properly.

Long Lasting Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are natural-looking and can actually improve the strength of your natural teeth. The veneer is also very secure due to its tight bond to your natural tooth.

In most cases, you can eat anything you would normally eat with your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are also stain resistant and can transform even the darkest tooth to a brilliant white. In Little Rock, Arkansas, porcelain veneers are the cosmetic dentist’s choice for creating beautiful, long-lasting smiles.
