Do you wish your smile were brighter, straighter, and healthier looking, but believe that great smiles are only the domain of the rich and famous? You’re wrong. Teeth and gums are the same for everyone, and even the most fabulous-looking celebrities typically turn to cosmetic dentistry to create the smiles they enjoy. Using the same tools and techniques as Hollywood’s most talented smile makers, such as lifelike porcelain veneers, your Southlake cosmetic dentist, Dr. Wright, can help you create a dazzling smile that you’ll be proud to show the world, as well.
A Multitude of Imperfections
Your teeth look their best when they’re bright, healthy, and blemish free, but unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Your smile can suffer from a multitude of cosmetic blemishes, many of which are purely cosmetic and don’t affect your smile’s overall health. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells of dental porcelain that are made to the exact size and shape of a tooth’s front surface. The veneers are bonded to the fronts of your blemished teeth, concealing a wide range of imperfections that can include;
- Severe tooth stains
- Cracks or chips that alter the tooth’s contour
- Odd spacing that creates black holes between teeth
- Slight misalignment (crookedness)
- Misshapen teeth (which might appear shorter, longer, or less symmetrical than your other teeth)
Custom-Crafting Your Smile
While porcelain veneers cover a wide variety of issues, they aren’t ideal for every situation. If your teeth are only mildly or moderately stained, than professional teeth whitening may suffice to improve your smile without the need for veneers. A single tooth can be improved with dental bonding or a porcelain dental crown, and if one or more teeth are lost or need extraction, then Dr. Wright will likely recommend dental implants to replace them. Porcelain veneers are an invaluable cosmetic tool, and are often combined with other cosmetic procedures to maximize your smile makeover. After a thorough and comprehensive examination, Dr. Wright will consult with you to determine your goals and discuss viable treatment options, which may or may not include porcelain veneers.
