Whether you’re trying to cover stains commonly caused by aging or you’re in a career that relies heavily on your appearance, your smile shouldn’t get in the way of having the look you want. Luckily, porcelain veneers in Frisco have multiple applications.
Furthermore, if you believe your teeth are too small and you’d like a fuller, brighter smile without the use of teeth whitening agents, you’ll be shocked at just how natural your new smile can look. Don’t feel guilty, nearly a third of American adults aren’t satisfied with their smile, but why should you have to stay in that group?
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin sheaths designed to bond to the visible surface of your teeth. Any teeth that are visible in your smile are ideal for using with porcelain veneers in Frisco. If you’ve heard of veneers in the past, you might be hesitant to pursue them at first. Trust us, modern veneers are nothing like their acrylic counterparts.
Unlike acrylic, porcelain is designed to be much stronger and last longer than ever before. You can eat the same foods you used to without the worry of surface stains. This is because porcelain is not as porous as natural teeth.
What are the Benefits?
Porcelain veneers are not just for fixing single issues you have with your smile. They can be used to cover multiple flaws, all at the same time. If you have chips or cracks that are purely aesthetic, you have intrinsic stains that teeth-whitening won’t remove, or your teeth are much smaller than you’d prefer, porcelain veneers in Frisco are the ideal solution.
Additionally, porcelain veneers can cover alignment issues or gaps in your smile, so you don’t have to pursue time-consuming orthodontic treatment to get a straighter smile. You also won’t have to worry about having “chicklet” teeth, or teeth that look unnatural because the veneers don’t blend in properly. Porcelain is designed to reflect and allow light to permeate like natural teeth.
What Does the Process Entail?
The first step of your obtaining your new smile is the initial appointment. Here, you’ll discuss with your cosmetic dentist in Frisco what you don’t like about your smile and which teeth you’d like covered. Afterwards, the dentist will buff down the affected teeth to make room for the veneers. Once they’re cleaned and prepared for bonding, your dentist will take impressions of your current teeth to create a perfect restoration.
While the restoration is being created, you’ll wear temporary veneers, so you can get more accustomed to your new smile. Details such as the size, shape, and color will be considered during production. In as little as two weeks, you’ll come back for your second appointment to have the veneers placed and bonded.
With proper care, you can expect your veneers to last at least 10 years, so don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with your dentist today!
