There is no substitute for a healthy smile. The confidence it brings can literally change a person’s outlook, demeanor, and of course, their appearance. When your teeth are crooked, discolored, or broken, the effect goes beyond the defect itself and can have a debilitating impact on your life. Speaking in public, going on job interviews, and participating in social occasions can all be a cause of anxiety and insecurity for you when you feel self-conscious about your smile.
What Porcelain Veneers Can Do for You
Porcelain veneers in Temple, TX are a fantastic cosmetic dentistry treatment for those patients who want to improve their smiles with minimally invasive treatment. Patients who elect to receive veneers can have a perfect smile in a very short time—usually just two visits to Lakewood Dental Trails. Dental veneers can be placed directly over chipped or broken teeth; they can fill gaps between poorly spaced teeth and mask discolored or stained teeth.
Porcelain veneers are an excellent solution for those who want increased resistance to staining, such as smokers or wine or coffee drinkers. If you have discolored, worn, chipped, broken, or gapped teeth, porcelain veneers may be the ideal cosmetic solution for you.
The Process for Getting Your Porcelain Veneers
You can have a perfect smile in just two short visits to Lakewood Dental Trails. During your first visit, your Temple, TX cosmetic dentist will take impressions of your teeth for your new veneers. The impressions are used to create temporary veneers and sent to a custom dental lab where your custom veneers are prepared.
We want your porcelain veneers to sit naturally along your gumline and blend well with the rest of your smile. To do this, our dentists remove a very thin layer of enamel from your tooth surface to retain the natural contour of your smile after we place the veneers over them. A local anesthetic will be administered to ensure that you remain comfortable throughout this brief preparation for treatment.
On your second visit, we will start by removing your temporary veneers. Next, your new veneers will be ready to be bonded to your teeth, and your smile will be ideal. The veneers are bonded directly to your teeth for a permanent fit that will allow you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. Your veneers are customized to match your natural tooth color and provide a thin, durable shell that will both enhance and protect your smile.
Take care of your new dental veneers by avoiding chewing on ice or hard foods that could chip or crack your veneer. If you brush and floss diligently and stay current with your routine dental exams and cleanings, your veneers may last as long as ten years.
