Having a smile that you’d rather hide instead of show-off can cause your self-confidence to spiral and keep you from making new connections. At Dental Center of Midlothian, we want to unleash everyone’s smile potential, which is why we offer a variety of cosmetic services, including porcelain veneers. Dr. Philip Johnson is an experienced and dedicated cosmetic dentist that loves refreshing and renewing patients’ smiles. You don’t have to just accept that your smile doesn’t bring you joy, instead, let us craft it to match your desires and boost your confidence by scheduling a consultation today!
Dental veneers are thin, strong shells that are custom created to fit over the visible portion of your teeth to conceal a variety of imperfections. Porcelain is a non-porous material that is gentle on oral tissues and reflects light like your natural tooth enamel does, allowing veneers to look completely natural. Dr. Johnson can alter the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth with these shells to create a seamless and even smile.
Each veneer is custom crafted to Dr. Johnson’s specification to fix each unique tooth in your mouth. Because of this, the process typically takes course over three appointments. The first one will be a consultation, which allows us to discuss the process with you in detail and determine your desires for your smile. This is also a great time to ask us any questions if you have some!
Typically, it’s about two to four weeks until we’ll receive the shells from our lab. After we get your permanent veneers, we’ll call you in for your last appointment and bond each of your veneers. After making any necessary adjustments and a quick polishing, you’ll be all set!
Patients often choose veneers over other cosmetic procedures because they have the ability to fix many cosmetic imperfections including severely stained teeth, chipped and cracked teeth, gaps between teeth, as well as misaligned and misshapen teeth. Some other advantages that veneers can offer you include:
One great advantage of porcelain veneers is that they typically don’t require any special care unless specifically instructed by our team. To get the most out of your investment in a beautiful smile, we recommend keeping up with your oral hygiene routine by brushing twice each day and flossing at least once a day. This will also help keep your veneers bright and looking new. For any questions about how veneers can help you, don’t hesitate to contact us or visit our website!
