Frisco's Legacy Ranch Dental explains dental veneers:
Dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom-built shells used to cover the front surface of natural teeth. Dentists like Dr. Osborne at Legacy Ranch Dental use this dental treatment to improve a patient's smile. Veneers are bonded to the front of teeth, changing color, shape and size. They're typically made out of porcelain since the material resists better to stains and mimic reflecting properties so it looks really natural.
What kind of dental problems can be fixed with veneers?
At Legacy Ranch Dental, dental veneers allow us to help a number of patients find their confidence again. Frisco dentist Dr. Osborne can fix chipped teeth or even broken teeth thanks to veneers. He can also treat misaligned teeth or uneven teeth. For example if you have craters or bulges in them. Gaps are another dental problem that can be fixed, leaving you with a beautiful smile. Dentist Dr. Osborne also treats discolored teeth with dental veneers, especially if the change in color is due to a root canal or large resin fillings that have affected the tooth. At Legacy Dental Ranch in Frisco, it typically takes two or three visits to complete a dental veneers treatment. In other words, if your teeth look worn down, there's a chance that dental veneers can help change your appearance.
How does the veneers procedure work?
Just like any dental treatment, getting veneers starts with a trip to the dentist. If you're in the Frisco, Texas area, you can visit dentist Dr. Osborne at Legacy Ranch Dental. First a dentist will examine your teeth, discuss your options and should veneers be the answer to restoring your smile, then the dentist will lay out your dental treatment plan.
Your teeth will need preparation before a dental veneer can be placed over it. Typically, about Â½ millimeter of enamel from the tooth's surface is removed. Don't worry, an anesthetic is used. Then an impression of your tooth is made and sent to a dental laboratory so they can build your unique veneer. About 10 days or so later, the veneer will be back at your dentist's office.
Next up is bonding. Your dentist will apply a special type of cement to the veneer and then the veneer is placed onto your teeth. A light beam is used to activate the chemicals in this cement, causing it to harden and voila, you have a perfect smile.
