Porcelain Veneers in Lakeway, TX
When a number of cosmetic treatments are needed to improve the appearance of the smile, porcelain veneers provide an efficient solution. Ultra-thin coverings made of life-like porcelain, veneers dramatically improve the appearance of front teeth that have been affected by any number of imperfections. For their transformative capabilities, many consider dental veneers something of a smile makeover. Dr. Winston and Dr. Daniel can provide porcelain veneers at our Lakeway dental office.
What Do Porcelain Veneers Fix?
Because they completely cover the front surface of the natural tooth, dental veneers can solve a variety of cosmetic problems all at once. Some of the most common issues treatable with porcelain veneers include:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Broken teeth
- Overlapping teeth
- Severely stained or discolored teeth
- Irregularly shaped or textured teeth
- Slight misalignments or gaps
Because porcelain veneers are a cosmetic procedure, they are not a good choice for teeth that are decayed or that do not function properly due to damage or injury. In these cases, a porcelain crown may be the most effective solution.
What’s the Procedure for Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a minimally invasive treatment that is completed over the course of two or three visits to Eaddy Dentistry.
Bring in photos of smiles you admire to your first appointment. You and our dentists will discuss your treatment plan, and they will put together a look that best suits your facial features, coloring, and personal smile goals. Generally, teeth should be as white as the whites of your eyes, but we can help you achieve any look you desire.
After we have put together your treatment plan, we will make room for your veneers by removing a small amount of enamel from the surface of each tooth. Impressions will be made of your oral structures, and we’ll send this information off to our lab. Here, your porcelain veneers will be crafted by expert ceramists. Once they’re ready, they’ll be shipped back to us and you’ll come back for the final placement of your dental veneers.
Caring for Porcelain Veneers
After placement, your new porcelain veneers do not require much special maintenance. Brush for two minutes twice a day while using a non-abrasive toothpaste. Floss your teeth daily and visit your dentist as recommended to keep your gums and the teeth beneath your veneers healthy and infection-free.
A note for athletes and night time tooth grinders: invest in a custom-fit mouthguard to protect your porcelain veneers from excessive impact and force.
Am I A Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Most people who want to make significant smile improvements are good candidates for porcelain veneers. You will need to undergo a preliminary checkup and dental cleaning to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. If gum disease or cavities exist, we will provide restorative care before beginning cosmetic treatment.
