Using dental veneers to improve Lubbock, TX smiles
Do you have an imperfect smile? Is there one or maybe two issues with the smile that might be easily disguised? Do you want a solution that lasts longer than composite resin bonding? If this sounds like you and you reside in the Lubbock, TX area, we welcome you to book a consultation visit with Dr. Cole Sutak of Lone Star Smiles to discuss the advantages of using dental veneers.
What are dental veneers?
Dr. Cole Sutak describes dental veneers as porcelain facings made to cover the front of a tooth to disguise imperfections. Concealing these issues can make a dramatic difference in the appearance of the smile, enhancing its look while improving a patient’s -confidence and self-esteem. These cosmetic treatments are highly desirable because of their appearance, longevity, and ease of care.
What can be concealed with dental veneers?
Dental veneers can cover a variety of imperfections including:
- Crooked/misaligned teeth
- Permanently stained teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Chipped/cracked teeth.
- Unusually shaped teeth
- Short teeth
Why choose dental veneers?
Dental veneers have many advantages which make them a popular choice. They are:
- Easy to place.
- Simple to care for
What is the process of obtaining veneers?
The first step is an evaluation with Dr. Cole Sutak of Lone Star Smiles to determine candidacy. Most adult patients who have concerns on the anterior (front) teeth may be able to use porcelain veneers to cover them and improve the overall appearance of the teeth and smile.
Once patients have decided that porcelain veneers are right for them, preparation begins. The dentist needs to file down some of the tooth enamel on the front of the tooth before taking impressions for creating the restorations. A temporary may be placed while the molds are sent to a dental laboratory for fabrication. When the veneer is finished, the patient returns to remove the temporary and bond the final restoration in place over the problematic tooth.
