Do you lack confidence in your smile due to chipped, worn, or discolored teeth? Are flawed teeth a source of discouragement or embarrassment? You could be a candidate for porcelain veneer treatment. Cosmetic porcelain dental veneers can revive your smile and change your outlook on smiling altogether. Veneers can correct problems with worn tooth enamel, chipped or cracked teeth, small gaps in your smile, or teeth that are ill-shaped or discolored. If you live in Dallas, Texas, and nearby towns, you can consult with Drs. Mary Swift and Morgan Petty from Dallas Laser Dentistry to determine if you qualify for porcelain veneer treatment.
A Look at Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers have been around for years. Chances are you have heard of this cosmetic procedure without really understanding much about the treatment. Basically, cosmetic veneers are thin, ceramic shells custom-designed to cover the front surface of your teeth to enhance their appearance. Dental veneers conceal your worn, stained, or flawed tooth enamel to give your teeth an attractive, healthy appearance. Veneers can also strengthen the physical structure of your teeth while masking tooth imperfections to make your smile more aesthetically pleasing.
Our dentists may recommend dental veneers for enamel loss, to close gaps in your smile, or to improve the appearance of teeth that are:
- Stained or discolored
- Worn down due to teeth grinding
- Chipped, cracked, or broken
- Slightly crooked or misshapen
- Irregularly sized
When porcelain veneers cover your teeth, they become the new “face” of your smile. Your tooth flaws “disappear,” and all that is seen is the smooth, unblemished, bright porcelain surfaces of your dental veneers. Porcelain material resembles natural tooth enamel so closely that no one can tell the difference between your veneers and natural teeth. Your veneers will blend seamlessly with your smile to give it a gorgeous, natural-looking appearance.
Teeth Reshaping with Veneers
You may have one or more teeth that stand out due to being slightly crooked, odd-shaped, or thinner or smaller than the crowd. Veneers can “reshape” those teeth to give your smile a more uniform appearance. Although porcelain veneers are mainly used for cosmetic purposes, they can also strengthen and protect damaged or worn teeth so they can continue to be used.
Tips for Extending the Lifespan of Porcelain Veneers
One of the greatest benefits of porcelain veneer treatment is its longevity. With your bite being correctly aligned and good dental hygiene, your veneers can last 15-20 years. This includes brushing, flossing, and staying on top of your biannual dental cleaning. You’ll also need to eliminate lifestyle habits like chewing on ice, your nails, or non-food items or using your teeth like tools, as they could cause premature damage to your veneers.
If you play sports, we recommend wearing a sports guard to protect your teeth from dental trauma. If you suffer from nighttime grinding, a nightguard can protect your veneers from premature wear and tear.
