Your smile is one of the first features people notice when they meet you. But what happens if you feel self-conscious about your smile? You may not make the positive first impression you would like.
The truth is most of us weren’t born with picture-perfect smiles. In fact, many of the celebrities we admire have actually enhanced their teeth with porcelain veneers.
The good news is that veneers are no longer reserved for celebrities or the wealthy. Instead, they’re now accessible and affordable for most people, which means you can have the beautiful smile you deserve!
What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers in Kingsland are micro-thin slivers of porcelain that Dr. Lassiter custom designs to fit over your teeth. Veneers cover several types of imperfections, such as:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Tooth size discrepancies
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Small misalignment issues
- Spacing or gaps between teeth
Veneers can repair a few teeth, but they also achieve exceptional results when we use them for smile redesign.
The Porcelain Veneer Process
Dr. Lassiter combines his skills and artistry when designing smiles with porcelain veneers. Restoring compromised teeth also returns function to your bite, protecting your jaw joint (TMJ).
You’ll start with an evaluation with Dr. Lassiter, where he’ll discuss your smile goals with you and create a personalized treatment plan for you.
At your next visit, he’ll prepare your teeth for your veneers and create temporary ones for you to wear while our trusted dental lab handcrafts your final restorations. Wearing temporary veneers allows you to get used to the look, feel, and function of your new smile, so Dr. Lassiter can make any necessary adjustments to your final veneers when they’re done.
It takes two to three weeks for the lab to complete your porcelain veneers. Then you’ll return to Lassiter Family Dentistry, where Dr. Lassiter will permanently place your final veneers and make any needed adjustments to ensure your bite functions correctly.
Now, all that’s left to do is enjoy sharing your new smile with the world!
Caring for Your Porcelain Veneers in Kingsland Is Easy!
Porcelain veneers blend seamlessly with your smile and are easy to brush and floss just like you usually would. In addition, veneers are stain-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about whitening your smile to keep it bright. You should, however, avoid abrasive whitening toothpaste that could scratch the surface of your veneers.
Regular checkups with Dr. Lassiter every six months will also help keep your veneers and smile healthy. When you take good care of your porcelain veneers, they can last for many years.
