How Porcelain Veneers Can Rejuvenate Your Smile

Correcting minor tooth flaws doesn't have to involve major dental work. In fact, veneers, a restoration option offered by your cosmetic dentist in Dallas and Desoto, TX, Dr. Solarin, only require minimal changes to your teeth yet conceal many types of imperfections.

What are veneers?

Veneers are plastic or porcelain shells attached to the front surfaces of your teeth with dental cement. The tooth-shaped shells are made from an impression of your mouth for a perfect fit. Each veneer is no thicker than a fingernail but offers complete coverage for flaws and damage.

If you choose veneers, your dentist won't need to make any major changes to your teeth during your visit to the Dallas or Desoto dental office. Prior to receiving the veneers, a minimal amount of tooth enamel may need to be removed for a proper fit. In some cases, enamel removal may not even be required.

Veneers keep flaws out of sight

Since veneers cover the fronts of teeth completely, they're a good choice if you want to improve the appearance of damaged teeth. The restorations are often used to hide shallow cracks and chips in teeth.

Do you have a discolored tooth? No matter what the cause of the discoloration, a veneer can makeover your tooth. Your dentist will choose a veneer shade that matches the color of nearby teeth to ensure that the discoloration soon becomes a distant memory. Veneers also hide bumpy or uneven surfaces, conceal slight gaps between teeth, and offer a long-term teeth whitening option.

If an oddly shaped tooth is the issue, veneers offer a simple solution. Your restoration will make your twisted or crooked tooth look straight and will enhance the appearance of any oddly shaped tooth.

Short teeth can also be a distraction. Veneers add length to teeth, making your smile look more symmetrical. If your teeth shortened because you grind or clench your teeth while you sleep, your dentist may recommend a nightguard. Nightguards protect your veneers and teeth from damage.

Revitalize your smile with dental veneers! Make an appointment with the Desoto office call (972) 274-9300, or call the Dallas office at (214) 374-7100.
