Recreate Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
Improving your smile is an intricate process, but it doesn’t have to be a complicated one, even if you experience several types of cosmetic dental issues at once. One way to improve the appearance of your smile is through veneers that cover the surface of the teeth and smooth over the appearance of defects. Our porcelain veneers in Frisco are thin, highly-esthetic porcelain shells that can be bonded to the front surfaces of one or more teeth. Porcelain veneers can also be used to help change the shape of each tooth. We want to make sure that your smile is one that you feel confident showing off.
You may find yourself too self-conscious to smile due to a small gap in your front teeth or another type of blemish. Luckily, veneers can help you create an entirely new smile by addressing flaws like severe tooth stains, chipped or worn teeth, jagged edges, and minor tooth misalignment, among many others. Allow our Plano, TX, dental team to complete a thorough evaluation of the current state of your teeth and help you achieve the beautiful smile you deserve.
Learning More About Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain is a ceramic that’s very similar to the make of your natural teeth. It’s semi-translucent and looks and acts much like your teeth’s enamel. Each veneer is typically less than 0.5 mm thin, and custom-crafted to match the size, shape, and color of the healthy tooth. The veneers are customized and created by Dr. Vahadi in Plano, TX, to give you the confidence-boosting smile you’ve always wanted.
Veneers Work Well with Your Smile
Some cosmetic concerns, like teeth stains and misalignment, can develop naturally. Others, like chipped or cracked teeth, can occur by accident or as a result of other dental issues. Regardless of their nature, cosmetic concerns usually leave most of your healthy tooth structure intact, and the goal of cosmetic dentistry is to preserve as much of that healthy tooth structure as possible, all while giving you the beautiful smile you deserve to flash with confidence.
The beauty of porcelain veneers is that they can completely change a tooth’s appearance with minimal alteration to the tooth itself. Porcelain veneers are very natural looking as well as extremely durable with some lasting up to 25 years. To secure the veneer, Dr. Vahadi in Plano, TX, will prepare the tooth by gently sculpting a small amount of enamel from its front surface, and then permanently bond the veneer in place for a long-lasting solution.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers’ ability to closely mimic the appearance of healthy, natural teeth, coupled with the minimal amount of preparation needed, lend several advantages over other cosmetic treatments, such as:
Dramatic smile improvement with just one procedure
Preservation of healthy tooth structure
Fewer dental visits to complete the process
Eliminating the need for braces (in some cases)
Resisting stains over time
No one wants to feel self-conscious when they smile, which is why it’s important to explore the benefits of porcelain veneers for patients in Frisco and Plano, TX. Our team of professionals is happy to discuss these benefits and help you decide if it’s the right treatment for you.
Taking Care of Your Porcelain Veneers in Frisco
After you’ve received your veneers, you may experience minor sensitivity in your surrounding teeth—more commonly when eating or drinking hot and cold substances. However, within a few weeks, the sensitivity will subside. With new veneers, you should avoid sharp foods like pistachios (or chewing on ice) because even though the porcelain is durable, the veneers can still fracture or break if they twist.
As always, make sure you are brushing and flossing daily as well as making appointments with your dentist for regular checkups. With porcelain veneers in Frisco and Plano, TX, your new smile can last you decades. We make sure you know the right way to take care of your new veneers, along with your regular dental care.
