Patients are always asking the doctors at Shoal Creek Prosthodontic Group about the latest cosmetic solutions for their teeth. Some fixes are recommended just to repair damage or just to whiten, but veneers are the best way to give your smile a total makeover. Veneers are thin ceramic shells that bond directly to the surface of your teeth. This gives you the opportunity to completely change the appearance of your smile and still look natural. Patients with cosmetic issues like staining, cracked or chipped teeth, and even crooked teeth and small gaps can achieve a dazzling smile with veneers.
A patient can have a brand new smile using veneers in two to three visits! First, your dentist will discuss the shape and look you want for your new smile. Then an impression of your teeth is taken in order to custom fit the final product to the surfaces of your teeth. The impression is sent to a dental laboratory where your custom veneers will be fabricated, which may take up to two weeks. On your final visit, the veneers are bonded to your teeth for you to wear and enjoy!
