Perfecting San Antonia Smiles with Porcelain Veneers
Do you feel self-conscious about your smile? Do you wish you had the same confident grin as your favorite celebrity? With porcelain veneers, a brand new smile is possible. Whether you’re teeth are chipped, cracked, slightly misaligned, or stained, porcelain veneers are a convenient cosmetic solution that can deliver amazing results.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are similar to cosmetic bonding, but unlike cosmetic bonding, which uses dental resin to mask a limited number of issues, porcelain veneers are made from slivers of high-quality dental porcelain. Why porcelain? Because porcelain is metal-free and mimics the look of natural teeth in a way that other materials can’t.
Getting Started with Porcelain Veneers
If you've decided to transform your smile with porcelain veneers, getting started is easy.
During your first appointment at our San Antonio dental office, Dr. Holland will talk with you about the results you’d like to achieve. Then, after a comprehensive exam, we can begin designing your veneers. The key to designing a great set of veneers is creating a look that perfectly complements your appearance. That means choosing veneers that are the right shape, color, and style for you.
Once your porcelain veneers have been planned, we’ll prepare your teeth and put a set of temporary veneers in place. These temporary veneers will give you some idea of what your new smile will look like, and they’ll also protect your teeth while our lab makes your permanent veneers.
When your permanent veneers have been completed, you’ll come back to our San Antonio office for your second and final appointment to have your veneers placed.
As you get back to your normal schedule, you can feel confident about how your new smile and this “new image” can transform your life. Besides improving confidence in your smile, your new smile could also improve your romantic, social, and business relationships. Studies have shown that people with whiter, straighter teeth are perceived as more attractive, more successful and more confident.
How Can I Care For My Porcelain Veneers?
To ensure that your porcelain veneers last for years to come, remember to care for them regularly. How do you care for porcelain veneers? Just like you care for your natural smile—with regular brushing and flossing. We recommend that patients—with or without porcelain veneers—brush twice a day, floss at least once, and rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash.
