How Can Porcelain Veneers Help Me?

They are highly stain-resistant and durable, and their natural look promotes a beautiful smile you can feel proud to show off to the world.

  • Deep staining that is resistant to professional teeth whitening treatments
  • Chips and cracks in enamel

  • Teeth WhiteningTeeth whitening is perhaps the most commonly recommended cosmetic dentistry procedure. Professional teeth bleaching can enhance the brightness and color of your smile.
  • Dental Veneers– These are composite or porcelain laminates that are adhesively bonded to the surface of a tooth to correct and repair chips and cracks. They can dramatically improve a worn appearance or severe tooth discoloration. Veneers may also appropriate if you have gaps between your teeth or if you have not had success with teeth whitening.
  • Braces– Orthodontics can improve the appearance of teeth in children and adults who have misalignment or teeth with wide gaps. Products like Invisalign are nearly invisible and exceedingly more comfortable and convenient than traditional braces.
  • Inlays/Onlays– Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays made from porcelain or composite materials are a long-lasting yet cosmetic way to provide a “filling” to teeth with tooth decay or similar structural damage.
  • Composite Bonding– Chipped, broken, discolored or decayed teeth can be repaired or corrected with composite bonding. A dental composite material with the look of enamel and dentin is applied into the cavity or onto the surface of a tooth, sculpted into shape, contoured, and hardened with a high-intensity light.
  • Dental Implants– With a 95% success rate, dental implants are tiny titanium artificial tooth root replacements that are used as a part of prosthetic dentistry to compensate for tooth loss. A custom restoration is then affixed to the implant to complete your smile.
  • Gum-lifts (gingivectomy)– This procedure involves the removal of gum tissue to make the teeth appear longer and the gum line more even. An uneven gum line can make the teeth appear to have different lengths, which detracts from an attractive smile.
  • Smile Makeover– Typically one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures — such as dental veneers, dental implants, gingival sculpting and teeth whitening — may be required for several teeth in both the upper and lower arches in order to achieve the perfect smile.
  • Botox and JuvedermBotox is a safe and effective FDA-approved medication most commonly used to eliminate facial wrinkles and frown lines by decreasing the movement of muscles in troubled areas. It’s minimally invasive and results can typically last anywhere from 3-5 months on average. Juvederm is a smooth gel that is made up of hyaluronic acid which, when injected underneath the skin, can add volume and reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds. Not only will Botox and Juvéderm enhance your facial features, but they can also be used to inhibit jaw clenching. The injections relax certain facial muscles which stop the clenching and associated pain.

Reclaim Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers from Drake & Voto in Owasso, OK

American writer and philosopher Max Eastman once said that “A smile is the universal welcome.” It can be difficult, though, to welcome anyone with a smile if you’re self-conscious about the condition of your teeth. At Drake & Voto Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Owasso, OK, Dr. Gene Drake and Dr. Jayson Voto can help you achieve a smile you’re proud to show off with revolutionary cosmetic dentistry solutions like porcelain veneers.

Why Choose Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin, long-lasting layers of dental porcelain that are custom-fitted to the front surfaces of your teeth. They are incredibly durable and stain-resistant, giving you the freedom to smile confidently. Some of the most common dental imperfections corrected with porcelain veneers include the following:

  • Yellowing and discoloration resistant to professional teeth whitening treatments
  • Misalignment of teeth visible when you smile
  • Gaps between front teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or too large in relation to surrounding teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Cracks and chips

When Dr. Drake and Dr. Voto place your customized porcelain veneers – a process that typically involves just two office visits – the result is a whiter, straighter, more uniform smile that still looks and feels natural.

Revitalize Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers

If you’ve spent years dissatisfied with your smile, it’s time to take the first step toward improved oral health and a more aesthetically pleasing overall appearance. Contact us at our Owasso, OK office today to see how Dr. Drake and Dr. Voto can help you smile with confidence with the help of porcelain veneers. We also happily welcome patients from Claremore, Collinsville, Tulsa, Sperry, Skiatook and beyond.
