Not all of us are fortunate enough to have a perfect smile with perfect teeth. When your teeth are chipped, stained, cracked, misaligned, or have gaps between them, it can cause you to be self-conscious about your smile. Porcelain veneers may be the cosmetic dentistry solution you have been looking for.
Porcelain veneers, or dental veneers, can provide almost any smile with straight, white teeth. Porcelain veneers correct thousands of smiles, and are some of the most trusted cosmetic dentistry procedures.
To correct your cosmetic dentistry problems, porcelain veneers can provide very natural-looking results. Porcelain veneers are very thin pieces of porcelain that adhere to the front surfaces of your natural teeth, correcting your imperfections.
Bonding methods used in the past to correct many of the same imperfections could be stained with various elements, just like natural teeth. The modern porcelain veneers we offer resist staining, giving you lasting results without future whitening or re-bleaching.
Porcelain veneers can be applied to your teeth in just one to two weeks and a couple visits to Dr. Smith’s Beaumont, Texas cosmetic dentistry office. During your first visit, your teeth will be prepared for the porcelain veneers by having a small layer of enamel buffed away.
This is performed so that your porcelain veneers will fit seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. After your teeth have been prepared, a mold will be taken of your smile so that the porcelain veneers can be custom-made for your teeth. This mold is then sent to a dental lab where your porcelain veneers are fabricated.
While the mold is being created, you may elect to have temporary porcelain veneers placed. Many patients are very happy with the look of their temporaries and are ecstatic once their permanent porcelain veneers arrive.
After the porcelain veneers have been created, they will be sent back to Dr. Smith’s cosmetic dentistry office for your approval. Once, the porcelain veneers are approved, Dr. Smith will bond them to your teeth. With your new porcelain veneers, you will be able to smile confidently with your new, white, straight teeth.
