Porcelain Laminate Veneers

Beautiful Porcelain Veneers

Well, after 15 years our kind patient decided that it was time to replace the existing veneers.  We allowed our loyal patient to be involved in the design of the veneers.  Our patient was allowed to participate in the shape, the color, and the lengths of the teeth.  Our patient felt very much in control of this set of porcelain veneers.  Our patient finally felt that he/she was under the care of a dentist who truly cared about pleasing the desires of his patients.   
We truly enjoy these procedures.  Porcelain veneers can do so much to enhance the appeal of a smile, to enhance the confidence of a patient, and to open up the personality of a person.  There are times when veneers are over-treatment for a patient when whitening and reshaping can be done at a fraction of the fee.  We assist our patients in making a decision that makes sense.  We do our best to provide the best value for our patient’s hard-earned dollars.  If you or someone you know is interested in a dentist with an honest and conservative philosophy of cosmetic dental care, we invite you to contact us at (972) 250-2580.

An Introduction to Porcelain Veneers

The decision on whether to get veneers is a difficult one.  It is a decision which must be considered carefully.  The benefits of veneers are very apparent.  They can re-create smiles.  They look absolutely beautiful when done well.  We value the opportunity to help our patients to meet their desires. 
However, veneers must be cared for very well to keep them looking nice.  We strongly recommend night guard wear following the placement of veneers.
This patient came into our office wanting to enhance her smile.  She recognized that her teeth were severely worn at the biting edges and she recognized that one of her teeth was grayer than the others.  For personal reasons this patient decided to obtain veneers for her front six teeth.  With this plan she was able to greatly enhance her smile, she was able to re-establish much of the length of her teeth, and she was also able to whiten them all more.  Note how the grayer tooth is now matching the other teeth.  These veneers have been in place now for over five years.   This patient did commit to night guard wear while sleeping.  That helps to keep the veneers from chipping or breaking as much as we can control.  With regular brushing and flossing, and with regular dental appointments, we expect these veneers to look very nice for a very long time.

Replacing Older Bonding with Porcelain Veneers

Dallas dentist Plano Richardson Addison porcelain veneers laminates cosmeticThere are many times when some cosmetic procedures must be performed on a child.  The best material for this is bonding, or tooth-colored filling materials.  The reason why this material is best is because it is lesser expensive than porcelain veneers, because children may break the cosmetic dental work, and because bonding materials are easy to repair.  The disadvantage to these materials is that they may stain more readily and they can wear down.  However, bonding procedures can be accomplished in a single visit.
Many adults do ask which is better for their particular cosmetic desire, bonding or porcelain veneers.  Generally speaking, if not many teeth are involved bonding may be a nice option.  However, generally speaking as well, if many teeth are involved then porcelain veneers are best.
Cosmetic dentistry is quite an investment.  For that reason patients should be quite discerning when selecting a dentist to perform the work.  The last thing any patient would want with this sizable investment is to have to pay to have it done again because it was poorly or improperly done.  Our patients realize the commitment to quality that we have.  They understand our commitment to assisting them in keeping their cosmetic dental care in nice shape for a very long time.  Our patients also realize how much time and effort we take to make sure that everything fits very well and that their bite or occlusion is carefully managed.  It is one thing to have everything look nice; it is quite different to have everything look nice, function well, and to last for a long time.  Patients should be cautious in selecting their dentist for these procedures.  The best marketers cosmetic dentistry may not be the best providers of cosmetic dentistry.
