Any number of flaws can be major drawbacks for your smile and give you motivation to seek help from a cosmetic dentist. Chipped, cracked or crooked teeth are unappealing features that detract from a smile, as are gaps and undersized or misshapen teeth.
Fortunately, a cosmetic dentist can fix many of these problems with one simple device: the dental veneer. The thin tooth-shaped layers of porcelain really can be almost all things to all patients, and even manyHollywoodstars take advantage of veneers to get their silver screen-worthy pearly whites. So, why shouldn’t you do the same?
If you seek treatment from our experienced cosmetic dentist serving Arlington TX, veneers are likely to be an important part of your treatment plan, especially if you’re having a comprehensive smile makeover.
Not only can veneers make major improvements to many imperfections in your smile, the process achieves results quickly in comparison to other cosmetic dentistry techniques. Most patients need to schedule only two appointments—one for planning the veneers and one for placing them—to complete the process.
Depending on the type of veneer used, your cosmetic dentist may need to prepare the tooth prior to veneer placement. This involves removing a thin layer of enamel from the tooth to accommodate the veneers.
After the teeth are prepped, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth. Those impressions are then sent to the dental technicians who will actually create your veneers. Along with the impressions, your dentist will send additional specifications regarding the preferred shade and shape of the veneers.
A few weeks later, after the dentist has received your permanent veneers, you will return to the office to have them placed. Your cosmetic dentist can make additional adjustments to the color and shape of the veneers at your request, and in the last step, the dentist uses a bonding agent to attach the veneers to the teeth permanently.
Patients who want major enhancements to their smiles with minimal effort should consider veneers. Contact Fielder Park Dental in Arlington, TX and learn about all of the benefits that veneers have to offer.
