All About Porcelain Veneers
One of the most popular cosmetic treatments available today, porcelain veneers provide big smile improvements, all at once. Thin coverings made of beautiful porcelain, veneers are bonded directly onto the front of the tooth, instantly improving its shape, size and color. Porcelain veneers can be used to correct a number of imperfections in the front teeth, including:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Slightly misaligned teeth
- Discolored teeth that haven’t improved with teeth whitening
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Small gaps between teeth
Patients who are in good oral and overall health, free from tooth decay and gum infections, are usually good candidates for porcelain veneers.
The Porcelain Veneer Procedure
Your porcelain veneer treatment will be completed over two visits to our Mesquite office. In the first, Dr. McKnight will evaluate your smile and facial structures to determine the veneer color, size and shape that would benefit you most. You’ll have the opportunity to thoroughly discuss your goals and desires to ensure you get just the look you want (it can help to bring in photos of what you do and don’t want during the initial appointment).
Once Dr. McKnight has put together your treatment plan, he’ll prepare your teeth to receive the veneers. This involves slightly buffing a bit of tooth enamel to make room for the new devices. Temporary veneers are placed, and your information is sent off to our trusted lab, where your veneers are expertly crafted.
After about two weeks, your veneers are back from the lab and ready for placement. You’ll return to our office, where Dr. McKnight will check them one last time -- and you get the final approval before they’re securely bonded on. When everything goes just like it should, you leave our office the proud owner of your new, beautiful smile!
