Porcelain veneers are a common solution that we utilize to meet the cosmetic and restorative goals of our patients. Through the use of customized, porcelain shells placed on top of your existing teeth, Dr. Huckin can either subtly or dramatically alter the appearance of your smile with this conservative treatment approach. While our whitening and tooth bonding solutions are available to offer minor smile improvements, porcelain veneers provide a longer-lasting approach to your cosmetic goals. Many of our patients find the advantages of porcelain veneers are precisely what they are looking for in taking the next step to improve their smiles.
A highly trained cosmetic dentist in Dallas, Dr. Huckin can help you achieve your aesthetic goals with personalized, experienced care.
THE ADVANTAGES OF PORCELAIN VENEERS
Patients who pursue porcelain veneers will get several benefits from this process. Porcelain veneers act as a covering to your original teeth and are designed to meet your smile’s unique needs. Additional benefits include:
- A natural look and fit- your smile, but better!
- Brighter in color and resistant to future staining
- Light-reflecting property of natural teeth
- Customized size or shape to fill in any unsightly tooth gaps
We take a patient-centered approach to handling porcelain veneers. Our priority is to evaluate your aesthetic goals and ensure that they align with the best interests of your dental health. Luckily, our porcelain veneers do not require any special treatment and will last for several years as long as your practice good oral hygiene habits. Additionally, the veneers protect your existing teeth from future damage or decay.
TREATMENT USING IMPRESSIONS AND BONDING
Dr. Huckin will need to do a thorough evaluation of the current condition of your smile to determine if porcelain veneers will meet your individual needs. Additionally, all underlying issues that could be causing discoloration or tooth damage will need to be assessed before this cosmetic procedure proceeds.
Expect to make two or three visits to our office to complete the porcelain veneer process. To prepare your teeth for the veneers, a small layer of tooth enamel will be removed to create room for the veneers and provide a secure bonding surface. Dental impressions will need to be taken and sent to our labs so that they can create your customized veneers. Once we receive those impressions back from the lab, we will call you back into our office to adhere the new veneers to your teeth. Temporary veneers will be placed in the meantime to avoid any discomfort during the time it takes to receive the porcelain veneers.
