Got a mirror handy? Take a good look at your smile. Are there things you’d like to change? Maybe there are several cosmetic flaws you’d like to make disappear. With porcelain veneers, New Braunfels dentist Dr. David Earnest and his team of dental hygienists and dental assistants can magically transform your teeth to give you a smile that is gorgeous.
Porcelain veneers, which are also known as dental veneers, veneers or even instant orthodontics, are microthin layers of dental porcelain or composite resin material. Each veneer is custom crafted to alter the size, shape or color of an individual tooth in your smile. This way, each tooth is accurately enhanced and the collective effect is a smile that looks beautiful and natural.
Enhance Your Smile with the New Braunfels Cosmetic Dentist
If you’d like to know whether or not you’re a candidate for porcelain veneers, then schedule a consultation visit with Dr. Earnest. He will check your teeth and gums to assess your overall oral health, and he will also carefully check the teeth in your smile zone where porcelain veneers are placed. Most people are qualified candidates for veneers.
Porcelain veneers can be used to correct a wide array of cosmetic imperfections. For example, the reason they’re called instant orthodontics is because they are perfect for making a slightly misaligned smile look straight. Other flaws that porcelain veneers correct include:
- Chipped teeth
- Teeth that are slightly cracked
- Teeth with stains that cannot be removed with teeth whitening
- A tooth that is smaller than others
- Misshaped teeth
- Unusually worn teeth
- Broken teeth
The Cosmetic Dentist San Marcos Trusts Places Veneers in 2 Appointments
Typically, receiving your customized veneers requires scheduling two appointments with Dr. Earnest. At the first, we’ll numb the front portion of your mouth and then gently remove a layer of tooth enamel that is about equal to the thickness of veneers. We do this so the veneers fit evenly in your mouth. Once your teeth are prepared, an impression is taken that our cosmetic dental lab uses to fabricate your veneers. While this happens, we’ll give you a temporary set to wear.
The second appointment is when your permanent veneers are bonded into place and you get to see your brand new smile in the mirror!
