Do you find yourself not smiling around loved ones or in pictures because you’re so self-conscious about how your teeth look? Do you constantly worry that when you meet someone new, the first thing they will notice are your dental flaws? If so, you’re far from alone. The smile is one of the first things people notice about one another, and having one that constantly lowers your confidence can severely impact your life every day. However, Dr. Ravi Doctor, your cosmetic dentist in Arlington and Southlake, is able to offer a comprehensive solution that can completely eliminate multiple imperfections with just one simple procedure: porcelain veneers. With porcelain veneers, he can give any patient the million dollar smile they desire.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that are bonded directly to the anterior (front) surface of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving the smile and have become extremely popular due to their simplicity and versatility.
Placing custom veneers requires an advanced degree of technical skill as well as an artistic touch. Dr. Doctor designs each veneer individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s unique smile.
What Problems Can Porcelain Veneers Correct?
With porcelain veneers in Arlington and Southlake, we can help a patient take care of all of the following issues individually or at the same time:
Upper and Lower Anterior
Spacing Corrected with Veneers
- Misshapen teeth
- Undersized teeth
- Slightly rotated or crooked teeth
What is the Procedure Like?
Enhanced with Porcelain Veneers
Getting the smile of your dreams starts with a friendly consultation with Dr. Doctor. He’ll discuss your particular smile goals with you, perform a brief exam, and this will help him determine if porcelain veneers are the right choice for you.
If they are, the entire procedure will take about two to three visits to our office. At the first, he’ll remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth so that your veneers will lay flat, and then he’ll take an impression. This will be sent to a dental lab to fabricate your veneers from high-grade dental porcelain. Before you leave this appointment, Dr. Doctor will fit you with a set of temporary veneers so you can “test drive” your new smile.
When you return about a week or so later, he’ll remove the temporaries, bond your final veneers to your teeth, and check to make sure your bite is properly aligned. After a few final adjustments and making sure you love the results, your new smile will be ready for the world!
Will They Look Natural?
After they have been placed, ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
How Durable Are Porcelain Veneers?
We advise our patients to refrain from using their veneers for anything other than normal use. This includes to cut, rip, or tear any foreign objects, as accidental breakage or damage could occur. Fortunately, in case of an accident, replacing a veneer is quite simple. There is a five year warranty on all veneers placed in our office.
