Numerous patients every year visit Dental Care Today of Richardson looking for a way to correct or conceal numerous cosmetic flaws like chips, cracks, stains, and gaps. In many of these cases, a cosmetic dentist will recommend the simple, effective porcelain veneers procedures. Veneers are thin sheaths of dental grade porcelain placed over the front facing surfaces of teeth to conceal cosmetic flaws, reshape the smile line, and even correct orthodontic minor concerns that do not affect the smile’s healthy function. Crafted from high quality porcelain, veneers are stain resistant, durable, and natural looking. Patients who choose to move forward with the porcelain veneer process should plan on visiting our office for two treatment appointments. During your first visit, a small amount of surface tooth enamel is removed to allow the veneer to lay flat within the smile line. Then, we capture bite impressions for our lab, and we place a temporary veneer. Once we receive the final product from our lab, you’ll return to exchange the temporary for your smile perfecting porcelain veneer.
