Do you have broken or severely stained teeth? Try porcelain veneers.
Dr. Glen Wainwright provides porcelain veneers in Austin, Texas. Porcelain veneers are crafted from ultra-thin porcelain ceramic bonded to the front and sides of teeth. They also offer a more natural cosmetic result because veneers are color-matched to teeth. Learn more about their benefits as well as treatment with porcelain veneers below.
Treatment with Porcelain Veneers in Austin, TX
Before treatment, Dr. Wainwright will assess your teeth and gums. He will also discuss your budget, goals, and oral health with you to ensure that porcelain veneers are the right option for you.
Treatment begins when the tooth enamel is prepared by removing some of the tooth structure from the front and sides of teeth. Dr. Wainwright will take a dental impression of teeth before sending this mold to a lab. While your custom-made veneers are being crafted, you will be given temporary porcelain veneers. Once the porcelain veneers are complete, Dr. Wainwright will bond them to your teeth using a porcelain ceramic material. He may make some adjustments to ensure the veneers are the right shape and size.
Porcelain veneers are also resistant to staining and can last for years with proper dental care. You can still get cavities under your veneers, so it is important to keep on brushing and flossing twice a day. Avoid chewing on hard objects or nail-biting as the veneers may chip or break. If you notice that your bite doesn’t feel right or you feel any discomfort, call our office and we will fix it as soon as possible. Your comfort is our priority.
