Whether you are meeting a new person or greeting an old friend, your smile silently speaks volumes about you. Does your smile say what you want? If the answer is “No,” then you may want to consider porcelain veneers. The dental office of Dr. Joseph R. Loftus in Dallas, TX, has helped men and women like you enjoy new smiles that reveal confidence and happiness with porcelain veneers.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers, or dental veneers, fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry and are thin layers of tooth-color dental porcelain or composite that are placed over the surface of one or more teeth. Although veneers are cosmetic, they do provide a protective surface and can sometimes help avoid the need for more extensive repairs. For your porcelain veneers, Dr. Loftus will carefully gauge the color of your other teeth. With this and a mold of your teeth, a dental lab will fabricate your custom-made veneers. Then, Dr. Loftus uses a special dental cement to securely adhere the veneers to your existing teeth.
Porcelain Veneers for Many Reasons
Regardless of how or why your smile needs a boost, porcelain veneers may be the solution to a host of cosmetic issues. Perhaps your teeth show the results of normal wear and tear—chips, cracks or an uneven appearance. Stains to the enamel of your teeth are another common reason why people choose porcelain veneers. This staining may be caused by genetics or the foods and drinks you commonly consume. Porcelain veneers can correct teeth that have gaps or that are made to look worn by teeth grinding and clenching.
With proper care, porcelain veneers are designed to last for years. Brush and floss regularly as with your other teeth, and be sure to avoid biting on hard foods. Your porcelain veneers will speak positively about you!
