Dental veneers perfect Garland, TX smiles

Dental veneers from dentist in Garland 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. Sakunthala Boppana recommends this cosmetic dentistry technique to bring good smiles to greatness.

Dental veneer basics

A veneer is a thin layer of a strong, lustrous dental material. 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.

Veneers address many smile imperfections such as:
  • Stubborn discoloration.
  • Chips, cracks, pits, bumps, and other enamel flaws.
  • Teeth that look too short, are worn down, or oddly shaped.
  • Minor misalignment, gaps, and irregular spacing.

Porcelain veneers

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 instruction. You return in about two weeks to have veneers bonded onto prepped teeth.

Composite 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.

Porcelain veneers resist staining a bit better than composite veneers. However, with good home hygiene, a few minor precautions, and regular dental checkups, either type of veneer 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 night guard to protect veneer teeth.
