- Posted on: Mar 15 2023
Porcelain veneers continue to be one of the more popular cosmetic treatments requested at Smile Texas. Our Sugar Land, TX area professionals, Drs. Bret Davis and Mackenzi McAfee-Dooley, provide this and many other aesthetic solutions for patients who need to disguise imperfections and enhance the appearance of their smiles. If you are curious to learn more about how porcelain veneers can help you, continue reading about their use for concealing gaps between the front teeth.
What Can I Do About a Gap Between My Front Teeth?
Many patients will use porcelain veneers to correct imperfections, including gapped teeth. Two veneers are placed side-by-side and made slightly wider than the existing teeth. When bonded in place, they provide coverage that eliminates the need for longer treatments such as orthodontics. While composite resin bonding can also be used to treat gaps between teeth, this material is not stain-resistant like porcelain veneers are and will not last nearly as long. That is why we only use All-Porcelain veneers and crowns.
Why Choose Porcelain Veneers for Treating Gaps Between Teeth?
Porcelain veneers are incredibly thin shells of ceramic, custom-made to fit over natural teeth. They provide coverage that is designed with your smile in mind and can be made slightly wider than the existing teeth to close any gaps. The porcelain resists staining from food and drink and is highly durable, making it a great solution for eliminating an unsightly gap between front teeth. Additionally, because they are custom-made to fit comfortably on your teeth, you won’t have to worry about them slipping or shifting out of place.
How Long Does It Take To Obtain Veneers?
The best part is that porcelain veneers can usually be placed in as little as two visits. During the first visit, our dentists at Smile Texas will prepare the tooth, take impressions, and order your custom veneers. At the second visit, they will bond the porcelain veneers to the teeth and check that they fit comfortably and look natural.
