Veneers are used to change the length, shape, width, and/or color of someone's teeth if they're not happy with them. You can do as few as two veneers or you can do as many 10 or 12 veneers to improve the appearance of your smile. When a patient decides that they want to get veneers, that's about a three-step process. The first step is where we take models and we send them to the lab for what we call a mock-up. The lab recreates their smile in wax. The second appointment, the patient comes in. We actually prepare the teeth. They pick the shade that they want their final restoration to be, and we make sure that it will look good and natural. We help them in the process, but they actually are the ones who make the final decision. We use the mock-up from the first appointment to actually make their temporary veneers, so the patient actually gets to test drive their new smile before we have the lab finalize it. Then, the third appointment they came back in. They get their final restorations and their smile makeover's complete. I, myself, have had veneers for about 10 years now, and I've been super happy with them ever since I had them.
What Are Veneers And How Can They Help?
Made of long-lasting porcelain, dental veneers by top-rated Willow Park, TX dentist Dr. Ryan Crain are a simple cosmetic dentistry solution if you seek to correct any of the following:
- Gaps between teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Other irregularities
We’ll first create a mold of your teeth and then develop custom porcelain “coats” to correct your specific issues. These thin coats are designed to perfectly fit right over your teeth for optimum functionality and appearance. If some enamel has to be removed to make them look natural and fit well, we can gently do so.
We understand that trips to the dentist can be intimidating. If that’s true for you, find out how easy and comfortable your journey to a new smile can really be.
What Happens Once I Have Veneers?
We’ll make sure you have all of the necessary information and advice to keep your veneers in excellent condition. For instance, we’ll recommend staying away from certain food and drinks that can stain or harm your dental veneers. And we’ll always be here if you ever have any questions or concerns.
