Perfect Smile Makeover In Garland, TX
Have you marveled at the perfection of the smiles you see on television stars? Every visible tooth seems to complement its neighbors. For many celebrities, just like your friends and neighbors in Garland, TX, nature had a little help from dental veneers. Dr. Boppana recommends this cosmetic dental technique to bring good smiles to greatness.
Basics Of Dental Veneers
It is a thin layer of a strong, lustrous dental material made from porcelain or composite resin. It is precisely shaped to cover the visible surface of a prepped front tooth and securely bonded in place. A single tooth may be veneered or the entire “smile set” – four, six, or eight – for an instant makeover.
They help address many smile imperfections, such as:
Chips, cracks, pits, bumps, and other enamel flaws.
Teeth that look too short are worn down or oddly shaped.
Teeth with a gap in between.
Minor misalignment, gaps, and irregular spacing.
These wafer-thin shells have luster, translucency, and light-reflecting qualities that rival natural tooth enamel. The procedure involves
Removing a small amount of enamel to allow veneers to nest snugly.
Impressions are taken and sent to a dental laboratory, along with precise measurements and shading instructions.
Porcelain Veneers are made to fit perfectly.
In very rare cases, a temporary veneer is placed.
You will return in about two weeks to have veneers bonded onto prepped teeth.
Composite (resin) Veneers
Composite veneers can be an economical alternative to porcelain.
This direct process is performed chairside.
The doctor selects a shade that matches your natural dentition and molds the material to cover, build up, and re-shape teeth.
This method is efficient and requires little or no modification of tooth structure.
Advantages of Veneers
Either type will enhance your beautiful smile with natural teeth appearance.
Gum tissue tolerates porcelain better than resin.
Porcelain resists staining a bit better than composite veneers.
Porcelain offers a better solution to make your darker teeth look whiter.
Disadvantages of Veneers
The procedure is not reversible
Most Costly than resin bonding.
They can’t be repaired and must be replaced if chipped or damaged.
There is a chance that they can fall off.
Unlike crowns, veneers do not protect teeth from tooth decay.
Not a good choice for people with gum disease.

Maintaining Dental Veneers
With good home hygiene and a few minor precautions, and regular dental checkups, either type can look stunning for many years.
Brush with non-abrasive paste and a soft brush, after eating.
Floss before bedtime. Avoid biting directly into hard food, or gnawing on fingernails or pencils.
If you tend to clench or grind at night, Dr. Boppana will recommend a nightguard to protect veneer teeth.
