Porcelain Dental Veneers
A Solution for Smile Imperfections
We all want a smile that turns heads and stops people in their tracks, but chips, discoloration, gaps and spaces, or slightly crooked front teeth can dramatically mar the beauty of any smile. The good news is, we have a solution that can take care of any or all of these blemishes with a single procedure. Porcelain dental veneers can perfect the appearance of your smile in just a few simple appointments at the Ritchie Dental Group.
Porcelain dental veneers can help you if you have:
- Chipped teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Unevenly worn teeth
- Cracks in teeth
- Discolored teeth
You may prefer cosmetic dental bonding to porcelain teeth veneers, but if you have multiple problems with your smile’s appearance or a seriously damaged smile, consider porcelain veneers.
What are porcelain veneers? And how do we create and place them?
The Beauty of Porcelain Dental Veneers
Made from thin sheaths of porcelain layered to create a natural look, veneers allow us to give you a realistically beautiful smile. If you decide to enhance your smile with porcelain veneers, our doctors will sit down with you to discuss your goals and help you choose your ideal shade. Veneers are durable, stain resistant, and custom-made, allowing us to give you the smile of your dreams that will last for years.
Tooth Veneers Offer a Simple Solution
Our team will assess the condition of your smile, find out exactly what you have in mind, and help you visualize your end results. After your first appointment, we’ll send you home with a set of temporary veneers while your custom veneers are being crafted at a lab. After the placement of your permanent porcelain veneers, you’ll simply need to brush and floss your new smile daily, maintain your routine appointments with us, and perhaps consider wearing a protective night-guard while you sleep.
Do you have discolored, chipped, or cracked teeth, but still have a few questions before committing to porcelain veneers in Marble Falls? We would love to help! The best way to get answers to your specific questions is by contacting us for a one-on-one consultation. However, we’ve also listed a few frequently asked questions below to assist in the meantime.
How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?
For years, porcelain veneers have helped patients with stained, misaligned, or otherwise imperfect teeth achieve their smile goals. However, potential candidates often wonder, “How long will my new smile last?” After all, you want to enjoy all the benefits of a jaw-dropping smile for years to come. Fortunately, thanks to innovations in dentistry and high-quality materials, veneers today can last for 10+ years with proper care. However, many patients enjoy their veneers even longer!
Will My Veneers Match My Other Teeth?
Another advantage of the latest technology and state-of-the-art materials is that veneers are custom-made for each patient. In fact, they are designed to match the size, shape, and color of your other teeth! So, whether you are fixing one tooth or an entire row of teeth, you can have peace of mind knowing the final result will be absolutely flawless.
How Do I Care for My Porcelain Veneers?
Although porcelain veneers are durable and stain-resistant, they aren’t indestructible or cavity-proof. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that you take care of them properly. Fortunately, you can do so by brushing them twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting your dentist on a bi-yearly basis. (Which shouldn’t be hard since you should be doing those things anyway!).
What Happens If One of My Veneers Comes Off?
Although a broken veneer rarely occurs, it is important to be aware of what to do in case it does happen. Priority number one is not to panic. Instead, call our office as soon as possible so we can save the veneer and treat your tooth. Over the phone, we will provide you with step-by-step instructions on what to do until your appointment. No matter what, do not use crazy glue or attempt to fix it on your own.
How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost?
Like most cosmetic dentistry procedures, the cost depends on a number of factors, including how many teeth you are looking to fix. Whether you want to correct a minor chip on one tooth or undergo a smile makeover and upgrade an entire row of teeth, the best way to determine the exact price is to schedule an initial consultation with cosmetic dentist Dr. Greg Ritchie. Not only will we be upfront about the price, but we will provide you with the exact cost of treating your unique smile. That way, you don’t pay for anything you don’t need and there are no surprises along the way.
