Cover imperfections with porcelain veneers
- Posted on: Mar 15 2020
Patients in the Sugar Land, TX area who are asked what makes a smile “perfect” will often answer with “a white, straight smile free from imperfections.” When patients have imperfections of the teeth that make them self-conscious about the appearance of their smile, they may not feel confident with others. Achieving a beautiful smile with whiter, perfectly aligned teeth may be an appointment away for some of our patients. With the use of porcelain veneers, many men and women can enjoy the “perfect smile.”
What are porcelain veneers?
Drs. Rick Kline and Bret Davis of Smile Texas describe porcelain veneers as delicate, thin shells of porcelain that are custom-made for a patient to cement over the front of a tooth. The purpose of a porcelain veneer is to disguise an imperfection that bothers a patient and makes them feel self-conscious about their appearance. Porcelain veneers are great at covering:
- Teeth that are permanently stained
- Unusually shaped or short teeth
- Teeth with cracks and chips
- Misaligned teeth
- Teeth spaced apart, creating gaps
Who is a candidate?
Any patient who is ready to address imperfections of the smile are encouraged to find out if they are a proper candidate for porcelain veneers. Patients should have good oral health, be prudent about visiting their dentist regularly for examinations, and take good care of their smile between visits. Patients should also be free from periodontal disease or decay, which can delay the placement of porcelain veneers. It is also critical that patients have regular examinations with our dental team to ensure decay or disease does not develop on the natural tooth underneath the porcelain veneers which can impact oral health. The best way to determine candidacy for porcelain veneers is to schedule an initial assessment with our team at Smile Texas!
