If you’ve ever wondered how celebrities and movie stars have such perfect-looking smiles, the answer might just be porcelain veneers. Made up of a very thin layer of porcelain dental material that is applied directly over the surface of a patient’s existing teeth, porcelain veneers can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. We are pleased to offer veneers as one of the many services we provide to our Austin, TX, area patients.
Are Porcelain Veneers the Right Choice for You?
Porcelain veneers are often an excellent choice to repair damaged teeth. If your teeth are broken, misshaped, worn-down or discolored, veneers may be right for you. Although veneers are comprised of a very thin layer of porcelain, the term “porcelain” may be somewhat misleading. This type of dental material is actually extremely strong and durable. In fact, porcelain veneers often last for several years before they need to be replaced.
The Procedure Involved with Porcelain Veneers
Another advantage to porcelain veneers is the procedure involved – it’s surprisingly simple and fast! As the first step in the process, Dr. Miller will prepare the surface of your existing natural teeth. Next, he will apply an extremely thin layer of durable porcelain material over the surface of each tooth. That’s it! The entire process is typically completed in a single trip to our Austin, TX, office. The results are absolutely beautiful, and your new porcelain veneers should last for several years.
As is always the case with any dental appliance, veneers may not be the right choice for you. Dr. Miller can meet with you to discuss the advantages and disadvantages, and help you to decide whether or not you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers.
