Frequently Asked Questions About Porcelain Veneers

Question: What does veneer placement involve?

Answer: The entire procedure usually involves two visits with your Southlake dentist. During the first visit, Dr. Wright will prepare the teeth by removing a minuscule layer of enamel. He will then take an impression of the prepared teeth. During the next visit, your Southlake dentist will check the fit of your completed custom-made veneers and finally place them using a powerful adhesive.

Question: Do porcelain veneers look natural?

Answer: Yes. Veneers are created using thin wafers of porcelain. This material mimics the translucent appearance of natural enamel. In addition, porcelain is durable and stain resistant, providing quality restoration that will blend seamlessly with your smile.

Question: How can porcelain veneers improve my smile?

Answer: Most cosmetic procedures address one or two esthetic issues. Porcelain veneers can address several issues, including minor misalignment, damaged teeth, unsightly gaps between teeth, permanent teeth stains, and misshapen teeth.

Question: How do I maintain my porcelain veneers?

Answer: Caring for your new veneers is simple: Just maintain good dental habits. Every day, you should brush your teeth twice and floss once. This helps remove the bacteria that can cause plaque buildup and gum inflammation. In addition, you should always attend checkups and dental cleanings with Dr. Wright. By practicing good dental habits, you protect both your natural teeth and your new restorations.
