San Antonio, Texas
Porcelain veneers are very thin pieces of porcelain that are shaped to fit over the front surfaces of your teeth. They can correct a wide variety of dental problems:
- Small chips and cracks
- Gaps between teeth
- Worn teeth
- Slight misalignment
During your initial consultation, Dr. Hale will talk to you about what you would like to correct and how porcelain veneers can provide the results you want. He will also take an impression of your teeth so that your new smile can be designed.
The Veneers Procedure
- On your first treatment visit Dr. Hale will adjust a small amount of the enamel away to make space for the veneers. Temporary veneers may be placed until your permanent veneers are crafted.
- On your second visit Dr. Hale will place the permanent veneers on your teeth and check your bite to make sure your upper and lower teeth are meeting correctly and that you feel comfortable. When you are both satisfied he will bond them strongly to your teeth.
- Your porcelain veneers can be used exactly like your normal teeth, and they can be brushed and flossed exactly as you normally would.
If you live in the San Antonio area and you are looking for a way to gain the most beautiful smile possible, porcelain veneers can help you achieve that goal.
