Porcelain Veneers Perfecting San Antonio Smiles
Are you interested in a beautiful smile do-over? If so, porcelain veneers may be a good option for you. These wafer-thin porcelain coverings mask the appearance of virtually any cosmetic issue affecting the teeth that show when you smile. Chips, cracks, stains, and oddly-shaped teeth -- they’re all corrected with beautiful porcelain veneers. At Laith Family Dentistry, the procedure takes just two visits to our state-of-the-art office.
Porcelain veneers are quickly becoming one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry. They’re efficient, affordable, highly customizable, and they provide truly stunning results. Instead of having to undergo multiple, lengthy cosmetic or restorative treatments, you can have multiple dental flaws corrected in just one treatment with porcelain veneers.
The process for porcelain veneers is performed over two visits to Laith Family Dentistry. In the first, you and your dentist will discuss your smile desires. What do you want your veneers to look like? Veneers are highly customizable, and we will make recommendations to help you achieve the look you want. After a treatment plan is in place, your teeth are prepared to receive the veneers. Preparation involves buffing a small amount of enamel from the tooth’s surface. Dental impressions are made, and you leave the first visit with temporary veneers.
In the time between appointments, your veneers are created in a separate lab. You will come back to our office once they are ready. We’ll give you a preview of your new smile, and once you give your final OK, the veneers are bonded securely on.
Numerous Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
The advantages of choosing a single treatment for your smile transformation are significant. Porcelain veneers can save you time and the stress of visiting your dentist numerous times throughout treatment. Additionally, dental porcelain doesn’t stain, so your veneers stay the same shade of white for years after their application. But the biggest benefit of choosing porcelain veneers is definitely the end result -- a beautiful, confident smile that lasts.
Cared for properly, dental veneers can stay healthy and whole for a decade or more. Brush your teeth using a non-abrasive toothpaste, and continue to visit your dentist for routine checkups and cleanings. Cavities don’t develop on porcelain, but the teeth beneath them are as vulnerable to decay as ever before, and your gums are always at-risk of periodontal disease.
Protect your dental veneers from impact by wearing a custom-fit mouthguard during contact sports. If you grind your teeth at night, the condition known as bruxism, consider a night guard. Jaw clenching can cause the veneers to crack or break.
