What stands between you and the smile of your dreams?
Are your teeth discolored? Too short or slightly crooked? Are they maybe chipped or have other primarily cosmetic flaws?
Fort Worth cosmetic dentist Dr. Nikki Green has a solution for all of these problems – porcelain veneers. Veneers are the secret behind flawless smiles across the country, from celebrities in Hollywood to your next-door neighbor.
We can transform your smile using veneers, giving you naturally healthy-looking teeth that you will be thrilled to show off over and over again.
The best way to find out if porcelain veneers are the right option for you is to call Dr. Green’s Fort Worth dental office today to schedule a cosmetic consultation. Dr. Green or another one of our skilled practitioners will examine your teeth and gums and discuss your goals and your lifestyle with you to determine if veneers will be a good fit.
Veneers require that your teeth and gums be healthy and free from decay and periodontal disease. Although porcelain is durable, it can break, so if you grind or clench your teeth, veneers might not be the best choice. If any of these issues are a concern for you, don’t worry. We’ll discuss your treatment options, and once we’ve cleared up your condition, you might turn out to be a excellent candidate for veneers.
Each veneer is a slender shell made of porcelain, which is bonded directly over the top of your tooth. To place veneers, we do need to remove a small amount of enamel from the front of your tooth, and once your teeth are prepped for veneers, the procedure is permanent. The veneers themselves are durable, and with appropriate care, you can expect your veneers to last for many years before they need to be replaced.
Your veneers are crafted in a dental lab that we trust to create our patients’ restorations. The lab crafts your veneers for you and you alone, and to make sure that they fit properly and look completely natural, we will send the lab a mold of your teeth along with images and custom shading information so that they can get the shade and shape exactly right.
Veneers are designed to be slightly translucent, which allows the natural tooth beneath to show through – just barely – and porcelain reflects light in the same way that your tooth surface does. This means that once your veneers are bonded into place, nobody will ever know the secret behind your smile.
