Cosmetic Dentistry: Change Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers

cosmetic dentistry in North DallasIf you don’t fully love your smile, porcelain veneers allow you to change your smile using a simple and noninvasive cosmetic procedure. With cosmetic dentistry in North Dallas, you’re able to get a completely new and attractive smile by attaching false fronts to your teeth. The false fronts offer a natural look while hiding the flaws and cosmetic blemishes hurting the appearance of your smile. Unlike other forms of veneers, porcelain veneers are thinner, allowing more of the tooth’s structure to remain intact. Not to mention, porcelain reflects light just as enamel reflects light, so you’ll have a natural-looking smile.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin false fronts that are bonded to the front side of your teeth by a North Dallas cosmetic dentist. These thin shells are used to correct or hide a number of cosmetic flaws, such as chips or cracks. Veneers can also be used to hide severe tooth discoloration, making the teeth whiter. In some cases, veneers can be used as an alternative to orthodontic treatments because they can often be used to resolve the appearance of minor gaps and overcrowding. Overall, veneers give the teeth a more proportionate appearance—perfect for those who have abnormally shaped teeth.

Porcelain Veneer Procedure

If you’re interested in porcelain veneers, you’ll first need a consultation by a North Dallas cosmetic dentist. During the consultation, we’ll conduct a thorough evaluation of your oral health to determine if veneers are right for you. We will create a customized treatment plan to give you the exact new smile you want by picking the size, shape, and color of the veneers. We’ll create an individualized plan by taking all factors into consideration, including your skin tone, facial symmetry and your facial measurements to give you the perfect new smile.

Using your treatment plan as a “map,” we will begin the tooth preparation process, which involves etching the surface of your teeth. Since porcelain veneers are thinner than other types of veneers, we’ll only need to remove about 1 mm to 2 mm of enamel. This step is needed to ensure the veneers correctly bond to the teeth. Then, we will take impression of your teeth to create your custom veneers in the dental lab. While your new veneers are made, we will attach temporary veneers.

Once your handcrafted veneers are finished, we will remove the temporary veneers and make the final adjustments to ensure they meet your exact specifications for a flawless and functional smile. After your veneers meet your exact specifications, we’ll use a special light to help securely bond the permanent veneers to your teeth.
