What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain used to cover the front surface of a tooth. They are designed to permanently correct stained, chipped, broken, undersized, and slightly misaligned teeth.

How Long Does It Take to Get Porcelain Veneers?

  • Your new porcelain veneers will require a minimal amount of tooth enamel to be removed from the surface of your tooth.
  • Next, Dr. Ruff will take detailed impressions of your teeth which will be sent to the dental laboratory for fabricating your new porcelain veneers. A temporary set of veneers will be worn during this time.
  • Then, Dr. Ruff will determine the proper shade of your new veneers.
  • When they’re ready, your new veneers will be placed on your teeth without any cement so that Dr. Ruff can inspect them for obvious flaws. Upon your final approval, Dr. Ruff will permanently cement the new porcelain veneer to your tooth’s surface with a dental resin. Your teeth will need to be cleaned with water and prepared with a solution that microscopically roughens the surface of the tooth to achieve the best adhesion.
  • The cement is placed on the back of the veneer which is then carefully placed onto your tooth, and then hardened with a curing light. Any excess cement is removed from the teeth. Dr. Ruff will complete a final check to make sure that your teeth bite together properly.

What Is Fluorosis?

April 21, 2014

If you want to have a healthy smile, fluoride is important. That’s why it’s the active ingredient in most toothpaste brands and why it’s been added to most water supplies. Fluoride attracts minerals that will help your enamel stay strong in the face of bacteria and plaque.

But it is possible to get too much of a bad thing, and the same is true with fluoride. Too much fluoride can result in a condition called fluorosis. With this fluorosis, patients end up with small white streaks on the enamel of their teeth. Or, instead of streaks, some patients end up with discoloration of brown markings. Once there, these stains are permanent and may even get darker over time.

To get rid of the streaks or stains caused by fluorosis, we recommend a cosmetic dentistry service like porcelain veneers. With porcelain veneers from Ascot Aesthetic Implants & Dentistry, patients can hide the blemishes that are keeping them from smiling with complete confidence.

Have you noticed specks or streaks on your teeth? Dr. Angela Ruff will be happy to look at your smile and see if you’re struggling with fluorosis. If you are, she will work with you to improve how your teeth look. If you have any questions about the treatment she recommends, don’t hesitate to ask.

Dr. Ruff is happy to offer cosmetic care to patients from Fayetteville, Spring Lake, and all of Cumberland County. Call us today for an appointment.

Porcelain Veneers for Fayetteville Smiles

February 13, 2014

cosmetic dentistryHow can you quickly and easily transform a chipped, gapped, misshapen, or discolored smile? You can do it with a popular cosmetic dentistry service called porcelain veneers. Using thin pieces of tooth-shaped porcelain, Dr. Ruff and the team at Ascot Aesthetic Implants & Dentistry can help you hide flaws and enjoy a new, natural-looking smile. That’s because porcelain looks almost identical to natural enamel. What’s more, the size, shape, and color of your porcelain veneers can be customized, leading to remarkable results.

Here’s what you can expect from the treatment process.

First, Dr. Ruff will look at your teeth and talk to you about the goals you have for your smile. Then, when she’s completed an oral exam and talked with you, she can begin designing your veneers. Our lab will carefully fabricate your veneers from thin pieces of high-quality porcelain. In between appointments you’ll wear a set of temporary veneers. When your finished veneers are ready, you’ll come back to our Fayetteville dental office to have your temporary veneers removed and new permanent ones put in place.

Are porcelain veneers right for you? Dr. Ruff would be happy to answer that question during a consultation at Ascot Aesthetic Implants & Dentistry. Call us today to schedule an appointment. We happily offer cosmetic care to patients from Spring Lake and all of Cumberland County.
