Veneers Special Report
It is a proven fact that your self-confidence is directly influenced by your overall happiness and your feelings of wellbeing. Feeling good about yourself and your appearance can enhance your professional and personal relationships. On the other hand, feeling self-conscious or embarrassed about what you think is a flaw in your appearance can have a negative effect upon how you present yourself to the world. To be specific, feeling that you have an unattractive smile can be especially detrimental to you. How can you hide your teeth when you are interacting with other people?

Cosmetic dentist Jack Manikowski can help restore your confidence and improve your smile’s appearance with porcelain veneers. Used for the past 30 years, this dental technique can correct noticeable flaws such as chips, cracks, stains/discolorations and unevenness between teeth. Porcelain veneers may simply revitalize teeth that look old or worn-down.

Veneer techniques and materials are continually changing, but relatively few dentists have truly mastered the treatment. Dr. Jack happens to be a part of an elite group of dentists who have mastered veneer techniques. His work is superb due to his active involvement with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, their related professional endeavors and his passion for dental aesthetics.

How Are Porcelain Veneers Placed?

Each individual has a unique look and unique qualities that should be taken into consideration during the veneer planning and placement process. To achieve the most natural and beautiful results, Dr. Jack will first analyze your smile and decide how it can be perfected. He will consider your facial symmetry and even your personality to decide how best to create your new smile with veneers.

Fortunately, it is often possible to do chairside temporary bonding to see how permanent veneer restorations will enhance your smile. This is a great way to decide if veneers would be right for you, because there is no guesswork, and because you can preview the results before you commit.

Before having the veneers permanently bonded to your teeth, your teeth are shaped and prepared.  Dr. Jack will place temporary veneers while the permanent set is being crafted by one of his skilled ceramists. Wearing the temporary veneers is a great way to “test-drive” your new smile and garner feedback for Dr. Jack. There might be a subtle nuance or detail that you’d like him to take into account before placing your permanent veneers. Once your customized veneers are ready, the temporary set will be removed and the permanent set will be bonded into place.

A Brighter, More Beautiful Smile

Once your veneers have been placed, your brighter, more beautiful smile will gratify you. If you were self-conscious about your teeth or smile before treatment, you will now enjoy renewed confidence and increased self-esteem. Imagine how your life will change once you feel better about your smile. Your business and personal relationships may improve. You will feel more confident walking into a crowd. You will no longer feel like you have to hide any part of your appearance. Remarkably, the smallest changes on your outside can have a significant impact on your inside. Another bit of good news: you can enjoy your results for many years to come. With the proper care, veneers should last for 10 to 15 years.
