Porcelain veneers are increasingly popular, and it’s easy to see why. They correct a multitude of flaws and deliver sensational results. We’re happy to say veneers are among the available procedures at The Addison Dentist.
If you are considering beautifying your smile with porcelain veneers, you want a trusted dentist with extensive experience performing this treatment. The porcelain veneer procedure is more complicated than many cosmetic dental patients realize.
A veneer is an extremely thin shell of medical-grade ceramic that is permanently attached to the front of a tooth. They are custom made for each patient, and can cover chips, cracks, and stains. They can also improve the shape, size or length of a tooth.
While preparing a tooth for a veneer is less invasive than preparing a tooth for a crown, it is important to understand that it isn’t a reversible procedure. A microscopically small amount of enamel must be removed to make room for the veneer. The tooth cannot be restored to its original condition.
Veneers are usually placed on the most visible teeth – center stage, so to speak. It may not surprise you to learn they first became popular with movie stars in Hollywood. The first time they were used was nearly one hundred years ago.
If you would like to find out if porcelain veneers would give you the smile you desire, please schedule a consultation with The Addison Dentist in Addison Tx. We can discuss other cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening, or dental implants. We also provide general dentistry.
