Do you feel self-conscious about letting your smile show due to damaged, slightly misaligned, or gapped teeth? Porcelain veneers can address all of those issues with one, simple procedure. That way, you can have a complete and flawless smile that you’ve always dreamed of. The best way to learn whether you’re a good candidate for this treatment is to schedule a consultation with your cosmetic dentist in McAllen, Dr. Tijerina, today!
Dental veneers are typically made from durable porcelain. They’re crafted to be thin so they can easily fit over the surface of prepared teeth to conceal a number of dental flaws. They’re customized for individual teeth, meaning you can fix one or all of your teeth, depending on which ones you’re unhappy with. With the proper maintenance after they’re placed, your veneers can continue making your smile look great for 15 or more years.
Getting dental veneers in McAllen typically takes place over the course of two appointments. During the first, we’ll discuss what goals you have for your smile and discuss how porcelain veneers can help you achieve them. If you decide to go forward with the treatment at that time, we’ll prepare your teeth by removing a small portion of enamel—just enough to accommodate for the thickness of the veneers so they lay flush with your surrounding teeth. We’ll then take impressions of the teeth you’d like to improve and send them off to our dental laboratory.
Once our dental lab crafts and sends your permanent veneers, we’ll call you back in to make sure they’re the proper shade and size. Then, we’ll cement them onto the surface of your prepared teeth to complete your grin.
Porcelain veneers are a versatile treatment that offers a variety of advantages. Some of these include:
