Have you ever wished for a minimally-invasive facelift for a tooth without getting an entire crown? Veneers are your solution! Porcelain Veneers are an effective and versatile cosmetic dentistry procedure that we at Ritchie Dental Group offer to our clients in the Marble Falls, Texas area.
Veneers are individual covers for the front part of teeth and are a terrific way to fix a myriad of tooth imperfections, particularly if you have:
- Chipped teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Unevenly worn teeth
- Cracks in teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Minimal Misalignment.
Super-strong, tooth-colored porcelain laminate is shaped into thin shells and custom-fitted for each patient’s unique set of teeth. Porcelain Veneers are more durable than Dental Bonding, which is sometimes used to fix the same varieties of imperfections. Dental Bonding generally has a shorter life span than veneers, so keep this in mind when comparing the relative costs of the two procedures.
How many Veneers should you get? This depends on how many teeth you want to enhance and the overall condition of your teeth. at our Marble Falls, Texas dental office, Dr. Greg Ritchie will advise you on the most effective strategy.
The thickness, enamel color, alignment, and shape of your teeth influence the outcome as well as whether you have any gum recession. Veneers are matched to your existing teeth so they will blend seamlessly, but if you are planning to treat several teeth, you definitely want to have them created in the same “batch” at the lab.
The first step in the Veneer process is to make a model of your teeth to work from. After that, a dental technician will use the model to construct the Veneers to the perfect size, shape, color, and extent of translucency. Experienced cosmetic dentists and dental technicians (yes, like ours) elevate the level of artistry in this. It is an involved process, but we are committed to seeing it through.
Many patients wonder if Veneers are as durable as their natural teeth. Though the Veneer tooth-prep process weakens the tooth very slightly, with proper care, Veneers can last up to 15 years. Our team can advise you in detail on proper care of Porcelain Veneers .
