Austin and Round Rock, Texas
Porcelain veneers are a simple, effective way to erase many common cosmetic dental problems marring your smile. Austin cosmetic dentist Dr. John Schmid can help you decide whether porcelain veneers are the right way to renew your confidence in your smile.
Uses of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can conceal a wide range of cosmetic dental problems, including:
- Chipped teeth
- Stained teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Worn teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Uneven tooth length
- Teeth that are too small
Veneers are placed over teeth to conceal these cosmetic flaws. If your teeth are severely damaged or fractured, you may benefit from a dental crown to restore the tooth's structure and protect it from further damage. Dr. Schmid can evaluate your teeth to determine the best way to improve their appearance without sacrificing the health or function of your teeth.
The veneers we use are durable, stain-resistant and natural looking. Because of their strength, your porcelain veneers can last many years without cracking. Some people enjoy their original veneers for 10 to 20 years before replacing them. The semi-translucent porcelain material is lifelike, and your teeth will look naturally beautiful.
A Simple, Minimally Invasive Process
Although porcelain veneers are used for some of the same purposes as dental bonding, porcelain veneers tend to last longer and are more durable than bonding because of the way they are applied.
Porcelain veneers are a relatively simple, easy way to make over your smile. Veneers do not require surgery or months-long treatment. Instead, the entire treatment is completed over the course of just a few dental appointments with Dr. Schmid. In your initial consultation, he can answer your questions about porcelain veneers so you can be sure it is the right treatment for you.
A minimal amount of enamel is removed from the surface of your tooth so the veneer will adhere to it. This process does not cause any pain, and Round Rock dentist Dr. Schmid will make sure you do not experience any unnecessary discomfort. The porcelain veneers are bonded to your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are useful in many different situations. In some cases, another treatment may be appropriate. The only way to know whether porcelain veneers can address your area of dissatisfaction is to consult Dr. Schmid.
