Dental Veneers in Coppell, TX
Dental veneers are a popular and effective cosmetic dental solution. They are custom-made porcelain shells that are wafer-thin and tooth-colored, designed to cover the front surface of the teeth to improve their appearance.
Benefits of Dental Veneers in Coppell, TX
Dental veneers are versatile in their uses. Not only can they improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored or chipped, broken, or worn down, but they can also change the shape, size, and length of teeth. This means that they can be used to fix teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped and to close gaps between teeth. Additionally, cosmetic dental veneers can provide a natural tooth appearance and are stain-resistant.
Dental Veneers Coppell
The process of getting porcelain veneers placed takes more than one trip to the dentist, but more than one veneer can be placed at one time.
In the initial consultation, our dentist in Coppell at Compassion Smiles will discuss your goals of the procedure with you, then examine your teeth to make sure that veneers will be appropriate for you. He or she may also take some x-rays and/or make impressions of your mouth and teeth.
To prepare your teeth for a veneer, approximately ½ a millimeter of the enamel will need to be removed. A local anesthetic may be used for this part of the procedure. Once the enamel has been trimmed, your dentist will make an impression of the teeth and send this impression to a dental laboratory, which will construct the veneers.
Temporary dental veneers can be placed while waiting for the veneers to come back. Once ready (after about 2 to 4 weeks), the veneers are bonded to the teeth. Your dentist will first check the fit and shade of the veneers on your teeth, trimming as needed. The shade of the veneer can be adjusted with the shade of cement to be used. Once the fit is satisfactory, your teeth will be cleaned, polished, and etched, which roughens the tooth to create a stronger hold.
