How Do You Know if Veneers Are Your Best Choice?

Some cosmetic smile concerns have obvious solutions. If your teeth are stained, then there’s a good chance that they can be erased with teeth-whitening. If a tooth is chipped, then bonding it could be the simple solution. However, for many patients at our Garland, TX, dental office, smile improvement may involve addressing more than just one concern. When that’s the case, the goal of your treatment isn’t just to improve your smile, but to do so while minimizing the extent of overall treatment you need. With custom porcelain veneers, we can often accomplish that in the most minimally invasive manner, and with highly lifelike esthetic results.

What’s your specific concern with your smile?

While porcelain veneers are a great option for addressing a wide range of concerns, they aren’t always the most ideal solution for every cosmetic concern. Therefore, the first step to determining if porcelain veneers are your best choice is to determine what your smile improvement plan needs to accomplish, specifically. In many cases, porcelain veneers are most beneficial for addressing issues such as severe tooth discoloration, chipped or lightly cracked teeth, teeth that seem too small, and much more.

What other options do you have?

Once your specific smile concerns are accurately diagnosed, your dentist can help you determine which treatment option is best for addressing them. For instance, if you have a tooth that’s too severely cracked or broken to fix with a veneer, then you may require a dental crown to completely cap and protect it. When choosing the right treatment, we’ll aim to create maximum esthetic results for your smile while minimizing the amount of changes we need to make to your teeth to prepare for your treatment.

What can you expect from the procedure?

If porcelain veneers are your best option, then preparing for and placing them may be simpler than you realize. Because veneers are so thin, they can be placed after sculpting just a minimal amount of enamel from the fronts of your teeth’s surfaces. Once bonded in place, veneers help fortify the substantial tooth structure underneath them, helping you maintain their health and integrity for life.
