Learn About Porcelain Veneers from Our Allen, TX Cosmetic Dentist
Smile restorations are our specialty! Dr. Maria Y. Shahdad and the team at DFW Absolute Dental can help you to regain your smile and your self-confidence with durable, natural-looking, porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic material that are customized to attach to the surface of the tooth, instantly improving the appearance of your teeth! Porcelain is extremely durable, providing the patient with a long-term, low-cost solution to improving their smile. In addition to whitening the tooth, a porcelain veneer can assist in making changes to the tooth's shape and size, as well as dramatically improving the patient's self-esteem and quality of life!
Our office offers porcelain veneers to qualified candidates in the Tri-City area of Plane, Allen and Frisco, Texas. The professionals at DFW Absolute Dental recommend porcelain veneers to address the following:
• Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile
• Crooked teeth
• Misshapen teeth
• Severely discolored or stained teeth
• Teeth that are too small or large
• Unwanted or uneven spaces
• Worn or chipped teeth.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Natural Appearance – A porcelain veneer is extremely thin, and closely matches a natural tooth in color and luminosity. It is also shaped and sculpted to look very much like a natural tooth, often to the point it is indistinguishable from the real thing.
Stain Resistant – Unlike natural teeth, the porcelain material resists coffee and tea stains, as well as cigarette smoke.
Less Tooth Reduction – While a thin layer of existing tooth enamel must be removed, the process is minimally invasive as compared to other procedures, such as crowns.
Fast Procedure – The entire process usually takes just two visits. The initial visit involves preparation – the doctor will take an impression of the patient's teeth. The customized, fabricated, porcelain veneer is placed on the second visit.
Durability – Porcelain veneers are extremely strong and can last a very long time. Their strength helps to prevent issues such as breaking, chipping and cracking. However, as with other cosmetic therapies, porcelain veneers may have to eventually be replaced.
Porcelain veneers are also easy to maintain, and require routine dental appointments and at-home teeth cleaning. A small price to pay for a brighter smile, and renewed self-confidence!
