So you decide that you are going to paint a room in your house. Why not, it’s your house. Times have changed and so have your tastes. Your number one concern is the color. Is it going to match the rest of your house, or do you want it to stand out? The next concern is the durability of the paint. You want a color that you can rely on and will last for years. Don’t you wish you could do the same for your teeth? Sure, you could get them whitened, but the results require consistent maintenance. However, you can now have stain-proof teeth with porcelain veneers in The Woodlands, TX.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Life just happens sometimes, and that can leave your smile not looking its best. At this point, perhaps you have multiple dental issues, and the thought of correcting each one of them with a different procedure is the last thing you want. Porcelain veneers have the distinction of being able to address a multitude of cosmetic problems at once:
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Slightly misaligned teeth
- Obvious gaps
Porcelain veneers are actually extremely-thin ceramic coverings that are bonded to the front of your teeth. They are one of the easiest ways to makeover your smile. The high-quality ceramic material is strong, so not only do your teeth look great, but they are functional as well. Plus, unlike your regular teeth, the porcelain in non-porous. This means they do not stain like your regular teeth because things such as coffee, wine, and tobacco have nothing to hold onto. Your teeth can stay as white and sparkling as the day you got them. The results are much longer lasting and durable than traditional teeth-whitening.
What is the Procedure Like?
When you come in to get your porcelain veneers, your cosmetic dentist in The Woodlands, TX, Dr. Gutierrez or Dr. LeBlanc, will first ask you what type of result you are looking for. Porcelain veneers are quite customizable, so you can have a dramatic or subtle result. Once that has been decided, the procedure involves 3 basic steps:
- A small portion of your natural enamel will be removed to make room for the veneers.
- An impression will be taken of your teeth so a lab can fabricate your veneers
- The veneers will then be attached to the front of your teeth
The whole process usually takes two visits with a week in between, and is completely painless. Afterward, simple brushing and flossing is all you need to maintain them. They can last up to 20 years when properly taken care of.
