Many people agree that those with straight, white teeth are perceived as healthier, more attractive, and more successful. This often leaves people with stained, crooked, gapped, or damaged teeth feeling like there’s no hope for them. Thanks to cosmetic treatments like veneers, that’s no longer the case. This versatile treatment can correct virtually any imperfections that may exist within your smile. To learn more about how veneers in Weatherford can give you the perfect set of pearly whites you deserve, keep reading below.
Veneers are super-thin shells of dental porcelain designed to cover multiple aesthetic flaws in your teeth at the same time. Because they’re essentially little “masks” for your teeth, they’re considered one of the most comprehensive cosmetic treatments we offer.
Drs. Romack, Mulkey, and Decker can use veneers to completely revitalize your smile in just two visits to our office. Because they’re made of porcelain, they resemble natural tooth enamel almost perfectly. In addition, they can be used to correct a wide variety of aesthetic imperfections, including:
After you’ve attended a consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Weatherford to determine that veneers are the right treatment for you, receiving them generally only takes two appointments.
First, one of our dentists numbs the area around your tooth to prevent you from experiencing discomfort during the procedure. A thin layer of enamel is shaved off from the affected teeth; this ensures there is plenty of room in your mouth for the veneers. Then, we take impressions of your teeth and send that data to a dental lab, where your veneers will be crafted to match your surrounding teeth and complement your facial shape and skin tone.
We may place temporary veneers to protect your teeth until the permanent restorations are ready. Two or three weeks later, you’ll return to our office and we’ll install your final veneers.
One of the primary benefits of veneers is their versatility. Instead of spending time and money on multiple procedures to treat your cosmetic imperfections, veneers can be your all-in-one solution. Additionally, porcelain is not quite as porous as tooth enamel. This means they’re less likely to absorb the staining molecules in the foods and drinks you consume, making them more highly resistant to discoloration. Lastly, veneers are quite durable. Provided you take good care of your oral health with daily brushing and flossing and regular dental checkups, your veneers can last 10+ years before they need to be replaced.
