Veneers can dramatically improve the appearance of one tooth or your entire smile within just a few appointments.
Frisco Elm Dental understands each patient’s unique needs, budgetary constraints, habits, and preferences. Dr. Suri offers veneers made from porcelain or composite resin. These dental materials cover stubborn discoloration that doesn’t respond to bleaching. Veneers make teeth appear straight and even, and can change the appearance of shape and size for a more proportional smile.
Dr. Suri examines your mouth to detect conditions that need to be resolved before moving forward with elective treatment. Your mouth must be healthy before veneers are placed. You may also wish to bleach your teeth before treatment, because the shade of restorations cannot be altered after they are placed. The dentist will work with you to develop a treatment plan.
In some cases, alternatives to veneers may be recommended; for example, decay may be treated with restorative procedures such as porcelain crowns.
During an initial consultation, Dr. Suri will also discuss the pros and cons of each type of veneer.
You may prefer porcelain due to its lifelike appearance. About half a millimeter of enamel must be removed to make room for the veneer. This procedure is completed in a couple of appointments. As an indirect restoration, the veneer is created in a lab. After your tooth is prepared and the permanent veneer is completed, you will return to Frisco Elm Dental so the veneer is fitted and bonded.
As direct restorations, resin veneers are applied, shaped, and bonded to your tooth by Dr. Suri. While no tooth structure is removed to accommodate the resin veneer, this alternative generally appears more opaque than its porcelain counterpart.
