What Porcelain Veneers Can Do

Porcelain veneers are possibly the most powerful and certainly the most versatile procedure in cosmetic dentistry. Porcelain veneers can be used to correct:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Small or poorly shaped teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crooked teeth

Essentially, porcelain veneers have the power to transform each individual tooth until you have gotten rid of all the problems that make you unhappy with your smile. Whether you have just one tooth that makes you self-conscious or an entire smile that needs fixing, porcelain veneers can help.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of advanced ceramic that can be used to give your teeth a new visible surface. This is often just the front, but they can be used to make your teeth wider or taller, or reshape them so that your smile is full of even, proportionate teeth. If you are just having one tooth redone, the color can be matched to your other teeth so no one will know which is veneered, or you can have your entire smile redone in the whiteness you desire.

The Ideal Candidate for Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are not for everyone. In order to be a good candidate for porcelain veneers:

  • Veneered teeth must be healthy
  • You should not have gum disease
  • You should have a healthy bite

If you do not meet all three criteria, we can often overcome them to help you achieve your goals. A tooth that has some level of decay can be restored with a dental crown rather than a veneer. Gum disease treatment can restore your oral health before veneers are placed. Neuromuscular dentistry can help you overcome TMJ problems to protect your porcelain veneers.

At our practice, your porcelain veneers are also covered under our Dental Warranty. To be evaluated for porcelain veneers by Dr. Becky Coats, please call us at (817) 481-6888 or contact Grapevine Dental Care in Grapevine, Texas today.
