Recent surveys show that at a first meeting, 30% of people say they notice the condition of a person’s teeth before anything else. That means your smile imperfections could make for an unfavorable first impression. When you visit Coco Dental Center, Dr. Patel can revamp your appearance and boost your confidence by placing porcelain veneers. Contact our Northwest Dallas office today to schedule your initial visit and get on the path to a beautiful new smile!
Crafted from high-grade ceramics, porcelain veneers are thin, wafer-like shells that fit directly over your front-facing teeth to mask such flaws as misalignment, gaps, minor crowding and stains. Before the fixtures are placed, though, Dr. Patel will work with you to find the perfect color and shade of veneers to match your existing teeth so your smile will look like you’ve always had it.
The placement of porcelain veneers is fairly simple. Here’s what the two-to-three visit process entails:
Then, you’ll leave our office looking and feeling like a brand-new person!
Once your smile is revamped with porcelain veneers, you can expect more than just a beautiful new image. There are also the functional benefits of being able to chew your food better as well as enjoying improved pronunciation.
Then, with the increased self-esteem that naturally comes with achieving a symmetrical and appealing smile, you’ll no longer have to worry about what someone thinks of your teeth.
Once your cosmetic dentist has fitted you with your new veneers, the last thing you want is to jeopardize your revitalized look. To prevent this from happening, be sure to consistently brush and floss your teeth at least two times a day to remove harmful bacteria and plaque.
It’s also best to avoid eating items like hard candy, ice and nuts. Another key to the longevity of your veneers is to abstain from using your teeth as tools to perform such tasks as prying open packages and biting your fingernails.
With the proper care, your set of porcelain veneers could last up to 15 years. To learn more about the process and to get on the road to smile perfection, reach out to your cosmetic dentist to schedule a consultation today!
