cosmetic dentistry in Fort WorthPorcelain veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry that instantly allows you to transform your smile by attaching false fronts to your teeth. Porcelain veneers are often preferred to other cosmetic procedures, such as dental bonding and composite veneers because they provide a more natural looking appearance. The veneers are able to improve the appearance of your smile by hiding a number of cosmetic flaws using a simple procedure. At West 7th Smiles, we offer cosmetic dentistry in Fort Worth to transform your smile with porcelain veneers.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are false fronts that are bonded to the front side of the teeth to enhance your smile’s appearance. Since porcelain is used, the shells are thinner, allowing more of the tooth’s structure to remain intact during the bonding process. Plus, light naturally reflects the porcelain better when compared to other materials.

Receiving porcelain veneers in Fort Worth is simple. First, we will need to determine if veneers are the right option for you by performing an evaluation of your teeth and oral health. Then, we will create a customized treatment plan to give you an amazing new smile. To begin the process, we will clean your teeth and prepare them for bonding by etching the front surface of the teeth. Etching is needed to ensure a secure bond between the veneer and the tooth. Then, we will attach temporary veneers while we create your custom porcelain veneers. After your custom veneers are made, we will remove the temporary veneers and attach the permanent veneers.

How Can Veneers Improve my Smile?

Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of the teeth in a number of ways, such as by hiding chips, cracks, and discoloration. In some instances, veneers can be used to increase the appearance of the teeth’s alignment by resolving minor overcrowding or gaps. We can also use veneers to give your teeth a shapelier appearance for teeth that may be short or suffer from shape abnormalities.

Porcelain veneers offer superior benefits in terms of function and appearance when compared to veneers made from other materials. However, porcelain veneers don’t last as long as other veneers, so you’ll need to have them replaced about every 10 years. Not to mention, porcelain can chip, crack, and scratch is you aren’t careful. But, with the right home care and care from your dentist, you’ll help extend the longevity of the veneers before needing to replace them.
