One of the most rewarding experiences as a dentist, is seeing someone change their smile for the better. Here at Haslet Dentist, we love making people smile!! A great way to get the smile you want and deserve, is to have porcelain veneers placed. Achieve that smile you’ve always dreamed of having by coming and talking with us about this wonderful aesthetic dental option.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded to the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.
Reasons for porcelain veneers:
Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
Severely discolored or stained teeth.
Teeth that are too small or large.
Unwanted or uneven spaces.
Worn or chipped teeth.
What does getting porcelain veneers involve?
Having porcelain veneers done is usually a two visit process. The teeth are prepared on the first visit by removing the front surface of the teeth to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and an accurate shade will be chosen by you and the dentist. You will leave the first appointment with temporary veneers, which will be used for about 3 weeks, until your second appointment.
On the second visit, the temporary veneers will be removed and the teeth will be cleaned. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a blue light is used to harden and set the bond, allowing the veneer to adhere to your tooth.
If you are interested in this type of procedure, give Haslet Dentist a call and schedule an appointment to talk with us about it. We’d be happy to further answer any questions you may have, as well as make sure you are a great candidate for this type of procedure.
