Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that cover the front surface of teeth to conceal stains, mask chips, correct misalignment and gaps, and more. Porcelain is a great material to use because it mimics the translucent appearance of natural tooth enamel. This makes them a great choice for many of our patients who want to improve their smile’s appearance but also want to maintain their natural teeth as much as possible. They are often mistaken for crowns but are actually more conservative because they are only applied to the front surface of teeth.
Placing Dental Veneers
To prepare for the placement of veneers, our dentist will remove a thin layer of enamel from the front of each tooth. Then, they will take impressions of your teeth to create natural-looking veneers that fit perfectly on your teeth and complement your features. Once your veneers are placed, you can look forward to enjoying a smile that is strong, durable, and resistant to staining. With the right aftercare routine at home, you can expect to enjoy your new veneers for many years.
Advantages of Dental Veneers
An Affordable Option: If your teeth are cracked, discolored, or otherwise damaged, veneers may be an affordable cosmetic solution. Since they’re made from very thin porcelain shells that fit over your teeth, they’re also less invasive than other, more involved treatments. While treatment time depends on how many teeth need covering, most veneer procedures can be completed in just a few visits to our dental office.
Improved Aesthetics: Patients love the idea of instantly improving the appearance of their smiles. With dental veneers from our dentist in Prosper, TX, we can transform your smile in as few as just one visit to our office.
Undetectable “Braces”: Dental veneers can disguise minor imperfections such as crookedness or small gaps between teeth. They can allow patients to straighten their teeth without having to wear braces.
Aftercare for Veneers
In order to keep your veneers looking their best, it’s important to practice diligent oral hygiene habits at home. By avoiding any foods that could stain your teeth, such as berries, red wine, or coffee, you’ll keep your beautiful smile looking as bright as ever.
Failing to properly clean your teeth can lead to tooth decay and gum disease, which will affect your health and the appearance of your smile. You should also avoid biting down on hard items like ice or your fingernails, which could potentially damage your veneers in the long term.
Veneers can chip or crack under extreme pressure. However, if you maintain your at-home care and regularly visit your dentist for cleanings and checkups, you’ll enjoy a beautiful, healthy set of teeth for many years to come!
