The appearance of your teeth is equally as important as their health. An attractive smile is vital to helping you feel confident. However, if you are like most adults, you feel insecure about how your teeth look. Genetics, poor dental health, and bad habits can all lead to cosmetic flaws that cause you to hide your smile. Now, you can transform your confidence and get beautiful teeth with your cosmetic dentist in Parker. Porcelain veneers will give you the drastic, lasting results you want using a minimally invasive procedure.
Veneers are thin shells that are bonded to the front side of the teeth to cover cosmetic flaws while improving their size, shape, and proportion. Their versatility is the perfection option for those who have stubborn tooth discoloration, chips, cracks, or abnormally shaped teeth. In some cases, they can even be used to close gaps and hide alignment issues for a straight smile without having to spend months wearing braces.
When compared to veneers of the past, those made of porcelain are the most preferred because they are thinner and look natural. Porcelain closely mimics the appearance of enamel, so light will reflect off their surface for a bright, white smile. In addition, they are far thinner than traditional veneers so less of the tooth’s structure is removed during the bonding process.
Porcelain veneers allow you to get a flawless smile in just two appointments. After an initial consultation to ensure that you are a candidate, a customized treatment plan is developed. During your first appointment, your dentist in Parker will clean your teeth and prepare them for bonding. This involves removing a very small amount of enamel. Although no one wants to permanently alter their teeth, it is necessary to ensure that the veneers will sit flush.
Impressions are then taken to create your permanent veneers at the dental lab. While you wait, we will attach temporary ones. In about two weeks, your new veneers will be ready to be bonded in place. At the end of your appointment, you will walk out with a beautiful, confident smile.
If you suffer from several cosmetic flaws, porcelain veneers could be the solution you need. The minimally invasive procedure allows you to gain drastic results that will last an average of 10 years with the right care.
Caring for them is simply by using nonabrasive dental products during your oral hygiene routine while also maintaining your regular dental appointments. Although they are strong and durable, it is best to avoid any habits that could damage them, such as using your teeth as tools or biting your nails.
If you are unhappy with the way your smile looks, you can improve the appearance of your teeth with porcelain veneers. As a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Rodney L. Allen will create the personalized solutions you need to transform your confidence. Contact our office today
