Porcelain Veneers – Texas City, TX
Change Your Smile for the Better
Have you ever noticed that many celebrities often seem to have naturally perfect smiles? While some of them might have been born that way, oftentimes they elect to improve their natural smiles with a treatment known as porcelain veneers. This treatment is used to correct all sorts of cosmetic imperfections that your smile may have, like chips or stubborn stains. To learn more about how porcelain veneers in Texas City can change your smile for the better, just keep reading below.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of dental porcelain that are permanently bonded to the front surfaces of your problem teeth to give them the appearance of being effortlessly perfect. You can think of them as little “masks” for your teeth. They don’t actually get rid of the stains, chips, cracks, and gaps; instead, they simply cover them up. Each veneer is custom made to your exact specifications to ensure it fits within your smile and blends in with the rest of your teeth.
What Is the Process of Getting Porcelain Veneers?
After your initial consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Bay Area, Dr. John Hackbarth, plan on making two additional appointments to get your veneers. During the first of these visits, Dr. H will prepare your teeth to receive the veneers by removing an ultra-thin sliver of enamel, about equal in thickness to a contact lens. This will ensure that your veneers won’t bulge out in your smile and will instead look and feel perfectly natural.
After your teeth are sufficiently prepped, we’ll take impressions and send the data off to a dental lab, where a professional ceramist will handcraft your veneers to perfectly match your existing smile. You’ll leave our office with a set of temporary veneers to protect your teeth in the meantime. A few weeks later, you’ll return to our office when your permanent restorations are ready. We’ll replace your temporaries and voila! We’ll then send you out into the world to enjoy your new and improved smile!
What Are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers come with a whole host of advantages, such as:
- They can address multiple cosmetic imperfections with just a single treatment.
- Gum tissue tolerates dental porcelain quite well.
- Veneers are much more highly resistant to staining than natural tooth enamel.
- If you take proper care of your veneers and underlying teeth, your restorations can last upwards of 10-15 years.
- Veneers are custom-made to look like a natural part of your smile. Onlookers shouldn’t even be able to tell that you had dental work done!
