The smile is the first impression you give to others, and if it’s less than perfect, it can impact both the individual and the people they are meeting for the first time. When imperfections cause patients to feel self-conscious about their appearance, it can make or break a first-time connection. With the help of Drs. Rick Kline and Bret Davis of Smile Texas, patients in the Sugarland, TX area with imperfect smiles can enhance their appearance and improve their confidence!
What restorations are used to enhance the smile?
The team at Smile Texas is pleased to provide patients with solutions for enhancing the smile through smile makeovers. These transformations often include several different cosmetic treatments designed to enhance the appearance of the teeth and gums. With the help of our team, patients will find that one common restoration, the porcelain veneer, is used in transforming the appearance of the smile.
How porcelain veneers work
Porcelain veneers are just one of several aesthetic services available at Smile Texas. These restorations are custom-fabricated for patients. They are very thin ceramic shells that are bonded onto the front of a tooth to cover problems including:
- Broken/chipped teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Unusually-shaped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Permanently stained teeth
First, patients consult with their dentist to make sure they are a good fit for porcelain veneers. This includes an evaluation of the smile. Patients free from periodontal disease and tooth decay will often qualify for the placement of porcelain veneers. Then, the teeth that will be covered with the veneers are prepared by filing down the natural tooth enamel on the front. Impressions are made and used to create the final veneers, which the dentist will bond into place during a future appointment.
