Beautiful Porcelain Veneers
We recently replaced a set of 15 year-old veneers on this valued patient. While the veneers had very little wrong as far as fit and decay, our patient desired a nicer esthetic result. Our patient informed us that the previous dentist did not allow viewing the veneers prior to having them bonded. The patient was looking for a different result. Our patient felt there was nothing that could be done once they had been completed.
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.

Replacing Older Bonding with Porcelain Veneers
There 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.
