Many of the gorgeous smiles you see on models, actors and celebrities are created with the use of porcelain veneers. Perfect smiles are a rarity, yet you see stunning white smiles everywhere in the media. If you want a smile makeover to give you a Hollywood smile, Smile Structure Dentistry & Braces offers porcelain veneers at our clinics in San Antonio.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Orthodontics, dental crowns and dental treatments can improve the health and appearance of your smile. However, they require extensive changes to your teeth to create a white, straight smile. Porcelain veneers do not change your teeth. They cover your teeth and create a new exterior. Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are shaped to fit over the front of your teeth, creating the smile you desire.
To adhere porcelain veneers, a mold or 3D image is made of your teeth that is used to create the porcelain shells. Our cosmetic dentists work with patients to determine the smile look they desire, which is sent with the tooth dimensions to the dental lab. To make space for the veneers, a small amount of enamel is removed from the teeth. Once the veneers are created, they are bonded in place.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Veneers?
The advantage of porcelain veneers is that they can cover almost any dental imperfection. Those with discolored, crooked, gapped or uneven teeth can benefit from dental veneers. The entire process can be completed in a few visits to our office. In most cases, you can have a new smile with porcelain veneers in less than two weeks.
