Having a beautiful smile can make a big difference in your daily life. It can boost your confidence, make you more attractive and credible, and even make your job easier, particularly if you rely on your appearance. Thanks to treatments from your cosmetic dentist in Lake Highlands, you don’t have to settle for a smile with chips, cracks, gaps, or discoloration.
With the help from porcelain veneers and Lumineers, you can get the smile you’ve always dreamed of having. Keep reading to learn how and more!
Porcelain veneers are super-thin sheaths designed to bond to the surface of teeth. One of the largest benefits of porcelain veneers, other than their natural appearance, is their ability to fix multiple issues simultaneously. That means if you want to fix discoloration and cosmetic cracks in your teeth, you can easily do both with a single treatment method. These veneers are also very durable, so as long as you practice proper oral hygiene, they should last for at least 10 to 15 years before needing replacement.
The process for porcelain veneers is quite straightforward. First, you’ll discuss what improvements you’d like to make with your dentist, so they can provide a professional recommendation. If you decide veneers are the best option, they’ll buff down a very small amount of your tooth enamel and take an impression. This impression will be used to produce your veneer at a dental lab offsite.
Until then, you’ll wear a temporary veneer, so you can get used to your new smile. At your follow-up visit, your dentist will make sure the size, shape, and color naturally blend with the rest of your smile. If so, your cosmetic dentist in Lake Highlands will adhere the veneer to your teeth using a special dental bonding agent.
We understand some patients want to remove as little tooth enamel as possible, but still improve their smile’s appearance. That’s why we also offer Lumineers in the office! These veneers are even thinner than traditional porcelain veneers and can often be placed without making any alterations to your existing tooth.
This also means you can return to your natural tooth later if you desire. Regardless, it’s a great way to achieve a picture-perfect smile without removing any tooth enamel.
