Have you ever wanted to have an amazing smile - one that makes lasting first impressions and looks completely natural? You can still achieve it even if you have stained, chipped or cracked teeth. Gaps in your teeth and alignment issues aren't a hurdle either. One option that has the potential to make a big difference regarding the look and quality of your smile is porcelain veneers.
Veneers are razor-thin slices of porcelain permanently bonded to the front of your teeth. When expertly crafted, veneers solve many smile problems, filling gaps and covering spaces, improving symmetry, concealing stains, and providing a dazzling white smile. That's because dental porcelain, like your natural tooth enamel, is translucent and tough. But it doesn't stain the same way tooth enamel does.
These days, thanks to advances in dental technology, veneers are so thin that they can sometimes be bonded directly onto your tooth surface. The cosmetic dentistry experts at Dental Care of Texas are well versed in several types of veneers, including traditional, porcelain, EMAX brand, and Empress veneers. Our staff works hard to use the optimal method for you.
Using porcelain veneers, your cosmetic dentist can transform your smile's shape, color, and overall appearance. Once you and your dental team choose the type of veneer that works best for you, your teeth may be prepared by removing a small amount of enamel. Impressions of your teeth are taken and used by a skilled dental laboratory to create your veneers. They will match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth. You will receive a temporary set of veneers to wear during the time it will take to create your permanent set. Once the lab completes your veneers, they are cemented onto your teeth.
Once applied, your porcelain veneers will hide stains, cracks, chips, slight misalignments, and gaps to give you a brand-new smile that any Hollywood star would envy.
Just like your natural teeth, your newly-restored teeth need gentle brushing and flossing every day. This regular care will remove dental plaque and ensure good gum tissue health around the veneers. If you grind or clench your teeth at night, you might be advised to get a custom-made night guard to protect your veneers - and your investment.
