Not satisfied with your smile? Stains, a vertical crack and other dental defects detract from your appearance. Why not explore the many possibilities porcelain veneers offer? Created by your cosmetic dentists in Fort Worth, Dr. William Ralstin and Dr. Lindsey Horwedel, veneers resurface flawed teeth for a stunning look.
Common cosmetic flaws
We all have them to one extent or another. Maybe your teeth are stained from coffee or tobacco. Or, over time, the enamel has become worn and dull. Chips and minor cracks don't affect smile health, but who wouldn't feel self-conscious about them?
Our Fort Worth cosmetic dentists offer many ways to renew your smile. Porcelain veneers are one of the most sought-after and versatile. Custom-made shells of fine ceramic, veneers disguise flaws as they are bonded to the front side of teeth.
To maximize their effect, your dentist will discuss your smile goals and examine and X-ray your teeth to be sure veneers would be the right service for you. Whether you choose traditional veneers, which require some minor enamel resurfacing, or beautiful no-preparation veneers, you'll achieve a beautiful look. Your treated teeth will be durable, naturally shaped and sized and, of course, be free of stains, small gaps and flaws.
The versatility of porcelain veneers
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry says that it is very difficult to differentiate between an attractive, unrestored tooth and one resurfaced with a porcelain veneer. Together with their dental lab, Dr. Ralstin or Dr. Horwedel can vary the shade, shape and size of your veneers to their exact specifications. In other words, veneers are custom-made for your smile.
However, while veneers look different for each patient, their care is similar. Just brush and floss every day, and treat your veneers as gently as possible. Don't chew ice cubes, eat peanut brittle or open bottles or packages with your teeth. Wear an occlusal (bite) guard if you clench or grind your teeth as you sleep.
Look and feel brand-new
