If you’ve lived with unsightly chips, fractures, wear or discoloration on your teeth, you understand how self-conscious that can make you feel. Many people just live with it thinking that it’s the best they can expect for their smile; however here at West 7th Smiles we’re here to tell you that there’s more available to you. Porcelain veneers in Ft. Worth may just be the solution you’re looking for!
What is a Porcelain Veneer?
A dental veneer is a thin layer made of porcelain that is custom designed by your dentist to fit over your natural tooth structure. It can be used to repair just one tooth, or to completely enhance and change the appearance of an entire smile. Veneers are ideal for repairing dental issues such as:
- Small fractures
- Small chipping
- Staining or discoloration
- Misshapen teeth
- Gaps or spacing between teeth
How are Porcelain Veneers Applied?
It will take a couple of appointments to complete your veneers because your dentist will custom design them to naturally complete your smile. Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth and design the shape and shade of your new smile, and your veneers will be hand crafted at a dental laboratory, so the process can take 2-4 weeks to complete.
When your veneers are ready, your dentist will permanently bond them directly to your tooth, which actually adds strength to your teeth. You and your dentist will custom shade your veneers to your desired shade. Be sure to be clear about which shade you desire, as veneers won’t respond to whitening treatment. Once your veneers are placed, you’ll leave with a brand new smile that will dazzle the world, while adding improved function to your teeth.
What are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
Not only do veneers repair your teeth, they also can completely change the appearance of your smile! Your new veneers are easy to care for as you will brush and floss as you normally would, and with great home care and regular check ups your veneers are durable enough to last for many years. Your new smile also won’t stain or discolor, so you won’t have to think about whitening your teeth again.
