Dentist Providing Porcelain Veneers in Dallas, TX
When you look at your smile, what do you see? If the honest answer to that question is teeth that are crooked, misaligned, cracked or discolored, then perhaps the time has come for you to restore your beautiful and confident smile. With porcelain veneers from Dr. Kenneth Hamlett, you can hide all of your teeth’s flaws and reveal a new smile that will give you a new sense of confidence.
A porcelain veneer is an ultra-thin layer of porcelain that is adhesively bonded to the front of each individual tooth in your smile zone to give you a bright and beautiful smile. And because they are made of porcelain, they reflect light similarly to natural tooth enamel. In addition to correcting cracked and crooked teeth or teeth that have irregular gaps between them, veneers can give your teeth a more aesthetic shape, size and color. And with this procedure, you can achieve results that might otherwise require a number of treatments including crowns, bonding, teeth whitening and even braces.
In Dr. Hamlett's skilled hands, veneers can transform your imperfect teeth into the most naturally beautiful smile possible. Ask Dr. Hamlett if porcelain veneers in Dallas are right for you.
Dental Veneers Procedure
After your initial consultation with Dr. Hamlett where he will examine your teeth and gums to determine your candidacy and you’ll discuss your smile goals, the veneers procedure will generally take about two more visits.
Dr. Hamlett will need to prepare your teeth to receive the veneers. This process requires removing a slight amount of tooth enamel that is equal to the thickness of the veneer to be added to the tooth. Then, we’ll take impressions of your teeth, which will be sent to the cosmetic lab that will fabricate your permanent veneers. In the meantime, Dr. Hamlett will place temporaries to protect your teeth and help you adjust to the feeling of having veneers.
Once your veneers are ready to be applied to your teeth, Dr. Hamlett will first check them for fit and color and to see if you are happy with the results. After your teeth are cleaned, polished and roughened for the strongest adherence possible, the veneers will be bonded to your teeth and a special curing light will provide a permanent fix. Your veneers will blend seamlessly with your other teeth for a smile that looks completely natural. In fact, most people won’t even know you had any dental work done! Moreover, with porcelain veneers you get quick results—usually only a total of three to four weeks—that are stain resistant, strong and durable and require very little recovery time. You’ll be back to your normal routine—only your smile will be better!
Veneers are a cosmetic dentistry procedure and are not commonly covered by dental insurance. Inquire about dental financing to look into affordable ways to smile.
