Get a Simple and Cost-effective Smile Makeover In Just Two Sessions

A “smile makeover” doesn’t have to be expensive, painful, or complicated. Porcelain veneers can fix several cosmetic issues in one go—and it only requires two appointments.

Porcelain veneers are very thin shells that are bonded to the tooth surface. It can hide discoloration, small chips and cracks, and close small gaps between the teeth. It also looks completely natural, because these are custom-made to match the color and size of the rest of the teeth.

Nowadays, companies sell DIY porcelain veneers online, however these are not safe or approved by the American Dental Association. First of all, it can cause dental problems. The kits do not consider a person’s bite and the pressure it puts on the teeth and jaw, and a poor-fitting veneer can trap bacteria, causing bad breath and eventually tooth decay.

Second of all, DIY kits often look unnatural, and draw the wrong kind of attention. People will end up feeling even more self-conscious about their smile, which defeats the purpose of getting veneers in the first place.

It is better to get porcelain veneers from a qualified, licensed and experienced dentist. Dr. Craig Arive, DDS offers Indianapolis porcelain veneers at a very reasonable price. The high-quality veneers can last for 10 to 15 years, unlike DIY kits which use sub-standard and sometimes even unsafe materials.

Dr. Arive also makes sure that the porcelain veneers look very natural and feel very uncomfortable. At the first visit, he will prepare impressions of the teeth and send it to the lab. The veneers are then guaranteed to be a “perfect match” for your teeth—in shape, size and color.

Dr. Arive will also prepare the teeth for the veneers, by shaving some of the enamel. Without this step, the veneers will look too bulky. After this step, the patient will be given temporary veneers to protect the teeth.

At the second appointment, Dr. Arive will apply the veneers, and make slight adjustments to make it look more seamless and natural. The veneers are then bonded with a special light. This process is painless and fast.

And in just those two steps, the patient gets a dramatic smile makeover. The porcelain veneers will last for over a decade, and won’t discolor over time. In fact, the non-porous material resists staining  and cavities better than natural teeth enamel.

Aside from porcelain veneers, Dr. Arive provides other dental services that can keep a person’s smile healthy and beautiful. That includes teeth whitening, inlays and onlays, dental bonding, dental crowns, and more.

At the first consultation, Dr. Arive will evaluate the teeth and determine the safest and best approach to achieve the patient’s goals. He is committed to giving first class care, which includes making sure that people know all the options, benefits, pros and cons, and costs.
