A Natural Looking Smile with Porcelain Veneers
Dr. Prida treats people from all walks of life and knows how to create a smile that will last a lifetime using state of the art cosmetic dentistry with porcelain veneers. His goal is to give you the smile you want using advanced technology and the finest materials, in order to meet, and then exceed, your expectations. If you are not happy with your smile, porcelain veneers could be the answer you have been looking for. In just two visits at the McKinney dentist office, Dr. Prida can create a new, confident smile for you.
Porcelain veneers are very thin porcelain facings that are bound to the front surfaces of your teeth to change their size, shape or color. They can also be used to give mildly crooked teeth the appearance of being straight or to close a gap between teeth.
Dr. Prida prepares your teeth by gently removing a very small amount of tooth surface. This forms a strong bonding surface for the veneers and compensates for the minor added thickness the veneers will create on your teeth. In addition to preparing your teeth, he uses a shade guide to determine the exact color and shade of the veneers.
Some Reasons to Get Porcelain Veneers
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Gaps between the teeth
- Mildly crooked teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Stained, yellowed or discolored teeth
- Teeth with pitted or rough surfaces
Dr. Prida begins the preparation by gently removing a very small amount of tooth surface. This forms a strong bonding surface for the veneers and compensates for the minor added thickness the veneers will create on your teeth. In addition to preparing your teeth, she uses a shade guide to determine the exact color and shade of the veneers. Because Dr. Prida removes a minimal amount of enamel your natural tooth will stay healthy.
Next Dr. Prida will take a set of detailed impressions of your teeth for the lab to use in creating your final veneers. He will then and place temporary veneers for you to wear while your finals are being crafted. These temporaries will look very much like the final veneers the lab is crafting. During this time, any changes you’d like to make in the feel or look will occur. If there are changes, Dr. Prida will send them to our lab technician, who will adjust your permanent veneers accordingly.
Your Final Veneers
Your final veneers will be ready and back from the lab in about two weeks. Dr. Prida will then remove the temporary veneers and place your final veneers. He will make sure the permanent veneers fit accurately and precisely, and blend in to your gum line. After final adjustments are made he will bond them onto your teeth using transparent or colored cement. This will optimize the color between the natural teeth and the veneers, giving them a beautiful, natural look. Schedule your appointment today.
