If you're like most people, chances are there is something about your smile that you would like to change and improve. Maybe your beloved morning coffee or tea have started to take a toll over the years and your teeth are not as white as they could be, or perhaps you've always wished that your smile was a little more even or symmetrical. Whatever the case may be, even healthy teeth and gums can fall victim to cosmetic damage over time due to lifestyle factors and/or genetics. Often times, these effects are inevitable, even if you practice relatively good oral hygiene and lifestyle habits. However, that's where cosmetic dentistry comes in! Dr. William Ralstin and Dr. Lindsey Horwedel, your dentists in Fort Worth, TX, recommend dental veneers for patients looking to improve the size, shape, or color of their damaged or unattractive teeth.

Think of dental veneers as a cosmetic coat or armor for your teeth. Made of a razor-thin layer of porcelain that is custom designed to match the color and texture of natural teeth, veneers are bonded directly onto the surface of the tooth and molded into the desired size or shape. They offer a great solution for a number of cosmetic problems including:
- Stains and discolorations
- Chips and cracks
- Gaps and spaces
- Odd tooth shape
In some cases, a thin layer of enamel may have to be removed in order to make room and ensure a natural looking and smooth fit for the veneers. With good oral hygiene and routine dental care, veneers can last from five to ten years, but often much longer.
