Understanding How Veneers Work
Porcelain veneers are thin but durable tooth-shaped caps that are bonded onto your teeth. The procedure is not much different from how your dentist places a crown on a tooth, but veneers can provide a whole smile makeover and without the need to remove as much individual tooth structure. This often translates into a faster overall procedure and can minimize the need for anesthesia.
Enough of your tooth's enamel is removed, however, for it to require protection going forward, making veneers a permanent treatment.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
There are many pros that come with dental veneers. If you have teeth that are misshapen by either injury or wear, veneers correct these issues quickly and painlessly. You can also use them to close the gap between teeth. Patients with stubborn stains that won't come out can also benefit from porcelain veneers.
Veneers in Flower Mound, TX
Porcelain veneers can help your teeth by correcting several imperfections, but the procedure requires an otherwise healthy smile.
If you grind your teeth at night a mouthguard will be necessary to protect your new veneers, but if you've been to your dentist they've likely recommended it to protect your natural teeth as well.
