Protect Your Smile With Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are among the most exciting restorative dentistry solutions you can enjoy today. With veneers, you can conceal stains, chips, cracks, uneven spots, or gaps in your teeth. Our dentists at Made Ya Smile Dental Rayford of Spring, TX are excited to offer porcelain veneers for patients who want their smiles to look their best.
What is a porcelain veneer made with?
As the name suggests, porcelain veneers are made with a sturdy porcelain material that fits over a tooth. We use high-grade porcelain compounds shaped to fit over your tooth while also being colored to blend in with the rest of your smile. Porcelain can resist stains, plus its surface can reflect light as well as your natural teeth, giving it a more realistic look.
Where will your veneer go?
Porcelain veneers can fit over any tooth, but they are typically for the teeth within the smile zone. These are the teeth that are the most visible when you smile.
How is your veneer shaped?
Our team approach at Made Ya Smile Dental Rayford can prepare your veneer by completing a thorough exam of your teeth and finding the right shape for your veneer. We can take an impression of your smile to determine how the cover should work.
How is your veneer applied?
We will apply your veneer by trimming a small bit of enamel from the front of your tooth. Your veneer will be about 0.05mm thick, so you won’t lose too much enamel. The amount is enough to keep the body from protruding or feeling uncomfortable, but still small to where the dentin and other deep tissues in your tooth will not be at risk of harm.
We will also clean off the tooth surface and polish it to ensure it doesn’t have excess bacteria that might harm how well the veneer can stay in place. The surface can also be etched to create a layout that can handle the dental cement necessary for keeping the veneer in one place.
You will receive a temporary veneer that will fit over your tooth for about one to two weeks while our dentists at Made Ya Smile prepare your permanent porcelain veneer. We will then apply that permanent veneer over your tooth with a sturdy dental cement material to keep it in place.
How long can your veneer last?
A dental veneer could last for at least ten years before it requires a replacement. The timeframe for how long your veneer will last depends on how well you care for your teeth. Daily brushing is critical for keeping your veneer safe, as any decay on your natural tooth could negatively impact how well the build can stay in place.
