When to Get Porcelain Veneers, Northeast Tarrant, Texas

Having even, white teeth can boost self-confidence and make a lasting first impression. That’s why dentists often specialize in cosmetic procedures as well as general dentistry services to ensure patients can have both optimal oral health and a brilliant appearance. If you've been considering porcelain veneers to take your smile to the next level, the guide below gives an overview of the process. 

What to Know About Porcelain Veneers

What Are They & Who Should Get Them?

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-designed shells placed over your existing teeth to upgrade their overall appearance. They are an effective option for patients with tooth discoloration or to protect existing teeth that have been cracked or chipped. If you have gaps between your teeth or are unsatisfied with their shape or size, this offers a permanent solution. 

How Does a Dentist Complete This Procedure?

dentistTo fit the veneers, you’ll need to see a dentist on three separate occasions. The first appointment will be a consultation to evaluate the condition of your smile, discuss your desired look, and take molds of your mouth so they can design the veneers. In the follow-up appointment, they will alter your existing teeth, shaving down the enamel before bonding them to the veneers. Once in place, you’ll visit the dentist again for a follow-up appointment to check your mouth's condition and discuss how you’re adapting. 

What Are the Long-Term Benefits?

Porcelain veneers look natural and can come in any shade of whiteness you want. In addition, since the material is durable and stain-resistant, you can enjoy your enhanced smile for up to 15 years.
