Porcelain Veneers for Lake Highlands, Texas
Patients who want to have a picture perfect smile might want to consider porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers can correct almost anything regarding the appearance of the teeth, including chips, gaps and slightly crooked or worn teeth. Dr. Hume is experienced in creating lifelike and beautiful porcelain veneers for his patients, and he continues this tradition at our Dallas, Texas dental office.
Porcelain veneers are thin shields of tooth shaped porcelain that can completely change a smile’s appearance. The beauty of porcelain is that it looks almost exactly like tooth enamel. Porcelain can also match enamel in strength and durability, which means a lasting smile makeover that can leave patients feeling confident in their smile.
Porcelain veneers are incredibly versatile, with the ability to repair a wide variety of problems, including chips, gaps, cracks, stains, worn teeth, and more. At times, people refer to porcelain veneers as “instant orthodontics” because porcelain veneers can be used to cover slightly crooked teeth. Instead of waiting for a year or more for orthodontic treatment to change the shape of a smile, patients can change it in just two visits to our Dallas dental office. Patients wanting to change the way their smile looks for any reason should discuss porcelain veneers with Dr. Hume to find out if this treatment might be the answer.
Initially, Dr. Hume will perform an analysis of the smile to see if veneers are a viable option. Several factors to consider, including the types of problems to correct and the state of the oral health will determine the course of treatment. Dr. Hume may need to address oral health issues before getting started on porcelain veneers.
Once Dr. Hume has completed a smile analysis, he will prepare your teeth by removing a very thin layer of enamel to make space for the veneers. Impressions of the teeth are taken so that the veneers will fit properly into place. Patients will wear temporary veneers over the prepared teeth during the time it takes for the dental lab to create the custom veneers. The veneers will be designed to fit our specifications of color, shape, and size.
When the veneers return from the lab, Dr. Hume will thoroughly inspect them and then bond them into place. Once this process is complete, patients see a total transformation has taken place right before their eyes!
