If you’re unhappy with your smile then you might want to consider veneers in Fort Worth. Veneers
are thin ‘shells’ designed to fit over the outer surface of your tooth enamel, similar to the way a false nail fits over a fingernail. Porcelain is the most common material for conventional veneers although composite resin is sometimes used.
Are veneers permanent?
Well yes, and no….. Porcelain veneers involve removing a layer of tooth enamel so that the veneers fit flush with the remaining teeth. Since this is a permanent procedure, the decision to have porcelain veneers shouldn’t be taken lightly. Lumineers, on the other hand, are exceptionally thin and in most cases can be applied without any tooth reduction. Because of this, they can be removed at any time.
What can veneers help with?
Veneers are a less obtrusive alternative to braces or crowns and can be used to adjust minor misalignments and close gaps in your smile. They can also be used as a cosmetic alternative to teeth whitening in Fort Worth, for straightening a smile, and to conceal fractures, chips, discoloration, and other flaws. The porcelain can be colored to the exact shade of your natural teeth to restore a single visible tooth, such as a front tooth, or several teeth.
What is the veneers procedure?
Veneers usually require two appointments. The procedure is as follows:
At the first appointment, the tooth is cleaned and a shade guide is used to choose the color for the veneer. Next, a thin layer of enamel is removed, sometimes using a local anesthetic, to make room for the veneer.
A mold is taken of the tooth for the laboratory and the patient is fitted with a temporary veneer.
Once the permanent veneer has been fabricated a second appointment is scheduled. The temporary veneer is removed and the permanent veneer is etched and glued in place on the tooth.
How long do veneers last?
Porcelain veneers can be expected to last anywhere between 10 and 20 years although no matter how well you care for them, they will at some stage need to be replaced. However, maintaining a high level of oral hygiene will help them last longer.
