Dr. Anthony Dillard helps patients achieve stunning smiles with porcelain veneers in Carrollton, TX. Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells placed on the front surface of the tooth. Veneers can cosmetically correct a variety of imperfections in one to two visits to our Carrollton office.
A porcelain veneer fits closely over your natural teeth to create a new finish and a more attractive appearance. The skilled ceramist hand-crafts the veneers with high-quality, stain-resistant dental porcelain. The finish of the cosmetic veneer is designed to mimic the look of natural tooth enamel. Your new smile will have the sheen and translucency that you desire.
Many patients suffer from cosmetic imperfections that cause them to feel self-conscious about their smile. Veneers conceal imperfections such as chips, small gaps, tooth discoloration, or misalignment.
Your dentist will use dental veneers on teeth in the esthetic zone. The esthetic zone includes the teeth that are visible when you smile. The superb quality porcelain veneers are stain resistant, and hand-colored to match your tooth color.
Almost anyone can be a candidate for porcelain veneers as long as their teeth and gums are in good condition. Therefore, before beginning the process of placing porcelain veneers, Dr. Dillard can conduct a thorough assessment of your oral health. As with any other cosmetic dentistry procedure, the condition of your smile is integral to the success of your veneers.
Dr. Dillard will prepare your teeth by removing about half a millimeter of enamel. Removing a layer of enamel allows space for the thickness of the veneer. Dr. Dillard will take digital impressions of your teeth with the iTero® chairside technology. At this point, Dr. Dillard will send your digital impressions to the dental lab for fabrication.
Your veneers are crafted in a dental lab by artisans skilled in creating fine dental restorations. After all, the porcelain veneers are a completely custom dental solution that will transform your smile. Generally, the dental lab needs about four weeks to hand-craft your dental veneers. In the meantime, Dr. Dillard can place temporary veneers until your custom veneers are ready.
Once the veneers are complete, you will return to our office to have your veneers cemented into place. Dr. Dillard bonds these ultra-thin layers of fine dental porcelain directly to teeth to improve their shape, size, and color. In short order, you will have a bright white smile to show off. With proper care, porcelain veneers can last 10 to 15 years.
