An even, white and winning smile can give you a leg up in life. If your smile is deeply stained, chipped or imperfect, it can leave you feeling very self-conscious in business and social settings.

Having your dentist, Dr. Ernesto Prida, whiten your teeth with a professional bleaching procedure won’t be enough to remedy chips and visible dental work on teeth. In a situation like this, he will often recommend porcelain dental veneers.

Dental veneers are thin, porcelain shells that fit seamlessly over the face of each tooth in your smile. They can be colored to a brilliant shade of white and given an appealing shape that disguises physical imperfections on your teeth.

Because the veneers are made from porcelain or resin materials, they don’t accept stains the way natural tooth enamel does. As a result, they will maintain their brilliant luster for many years to come!

Having Dr. Ernesto Prida fit you for dental veneers takes two appointments. During the first appointment, he will create a detailed impression of each tooth in your smile. This impression is sent to Dr. Ernesto Prida’s dental lab where the veneers are custom crafted.

Dr. Ernesto Prida will call you back into Stone Lodge Dental for the second appointment when the veneers are completed. During this appointment, he will remove a minute amount of enamel from the face of each tooth in your smile. Then, a veneer is carefully cemented onto each tooth.

If you aren’t happy with your smile and if you’d like to be fitted for dental veneers in McKinney, Texas, you should call our office at 214-613-1500 to schedule your first appointment.
