Some Reasons to Get Porcelain Veneers
If you want to improve your smile and live in McKinney, porcelain veneers are a simple option. Veneers are thin coverings that are placed over the front (visible) part of the tooth and look like natural teeth and can be used to correct a wide range of dental issues, such as:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Gaps between the teeth
- Crooked teeth or misshapen teeth
- Stained, yellowed or discolored teeth
- Teeth with pitted or rough surfaces
Porcelain veneers are made of either composite resin material or porcelain. Your McKinney dentist at Stonelodge Dental will help you choose the material that is best for you. Each type of veneer has its own benefits.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
A porcelain veneer is a thin shell that is custom-made to fit on the tooth.
- Veneers are strong and long-lasting
- They have a natural-looking surface
- Less tooth enamel needs to be removed than with a crown or cap
- They don't stain easily
Dental Veneers Preparation
Dr. Prida begins the preparation by gently removing a small amount of tooth surface from the front and sides of the teeth. This makes room for the veneers so that your teeth look natural. He then makes detailed impressions of the prepared teeth and decides on the shade that will be best for your smile. The impression is sent to our dental lab that custom-makes the porcelain veneers to fit your teeth. This may take about two weeks.
Dr. Prida will place temporary veneers while your finals are being crafted. These temporaries will look very much like the final veneers the lab is crafting. During this time, any changes you'd like to make in the feel or look will occur. If there are changes, Dr. Prida will send them to our lab technician, who will adjust your permanent veneers accordingly.
On your next visit with the McKinney dentist at Stonelodge Dental will remove the temporary veneers and place your final veneers. He will make sure the permanent veneers fit accurately and precisely, and blend in to your gum line. After any adjustments, the teeth are cleaned and the veneers are bonded to the tooth.
