Veneers can address short teeth and other imperfections for Garland area patients
Dental veneers are a great way for patients who wish to address teeth imperfections quickly and effectively. They can correct a variety of issues while creating the appearance of a beautiful, natural looking smile. In as little as two visits, patients can have the smile they’ve dreamt about.
Dental veneers are versatile because they can correct so many minor issues without the need for lengthy orthodontic work. Some of the most common issues fixed with dental veneers include:
- Short teeth
- Whitening-resistant stains
One of the biggest reasons veneers are so popular is because they are made up of porcelain. Porcelain is a translucent ceramic material that possesses many of the same characteristics of tooth enamel. The porcelain reflects light similarly to enamel which creates the appearance of natural teeth. In addition, porcelain is such a durable material that even though the veneers are ultra-thin, they still maintain strength.
The veneer process is simple and straightforward. During the first appointment, we will examine the mouth and walk the patient through the veneer process. It is important for the patient to understand what issues can and cannot be corrected with veneers.
Once the patient decides to move forward, the enamel will be prepared to allow for adhesion of the veneers and impressions are taken for fabrication. While waiting for the veneers, patients may experience a heightened sensitivity to hot and cold. This is normal and it will dissipate once the permanent veneers are in place.
After about two weeks, the patient will come back into the office for placement of the permanent veneers. The porcelain is bonded to the front of teeth and the result is a brand new smile. With veneers, patients are able to bite, chew, and speak naturally.
