Porcelain veneers are thin shells made of tooth-colored porcelain to cement on the front surface of your teeth to beautify your smile. They solve a host of aesthetic dental concerns like tooth discoloration, chips or cracks on teeth, worn down tooth enamel, and poor tooth alignment.
Dr. Celso Seretti at Seretti Dental in Houston, Texas, has decades of experience offering dental veneer treatment to hundreds of patients.
What Issues Can Porcelain Dental Veneers Solve?
Your teeth may lose visual appeal for several reasons. Porcelain veneers can solve most of them irrespective of what they are. Let’s take a look at the issues they solve:
Teeth Wear and Tear: A combination of age and lifestyle can lead to your teeth wearing down.
Discoloration: Diet and medication can sometimes discolor or stain your teeth. Porcelain veneers can help fix the problem by keeping your pearls white for long.
Uneven Teeth: If you have a habit of grinding or gnashing your teeth, chances are they become uneven.
Worn Enamel: Enamel, the hardcover on top of your teeth, can sometimes wear off depending on your diet. Porcelain veneers restore your teeth to their full glory.
What to Expect From a Dental Veneer Procedure
A porcelain veneer procedure typically takes two visits to your dentists and may require a maximum of six weeks. In your first appointment, our dentist will conduct a series of examinations to determine whether you are a good fit for the procedure.
Next, Dr. Seretti will prepare your teeth to take the process further by filing off a part of your tooth enamel. You will be given a sedative to minimize pain and discomfort during this step. Once done, Dr. Seretti will take an impression of your teeth and send the same to the dental laboratory, where your veneers will be designed from scratch.
In the next step, Dr. Seretti will sit with you to find the best color tone for the veneer to match your teeth using a shade chart. You will then be fitted with a temporary till the permanent veneers arrive from the lab.
On your next visit, Dr. Seretti will permanently bond the porcelain veneers onto your teeth to give you a brand new smile.
