& Implant Dentistry
A white, attractive smile makes a great first impression. In fact, according to a study by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, people with a beautiful smile are considered more intelligent, friendly, and successful. If you’ve thought about braces, bonding, or teeth whitening to improve your smile, then consider porcelain veneers as a quality option too. Handcrafted, custom designed porcelain veneers in Fort Worth address tooth color, shape, size, alignment, and overall appearance. Instead of having multiple cosmetic procedures, veneers may be exactly what you need to shorten the time it takes to rejuvenate your smile.
Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments around and for good reasons. With these super thin coverings of fine dental porcelain, Dr. Pointer can completely change the appearance of your smile. Each perfect veneer is adhesively bonded to the front side of the tooth for which it was custom designed. Whether you need a veneer to cover up just one tooth or an entire row to create a picture perfect smile, Dr. Pointer can accommodate your needs!
A dentist in Fort Worth uses porcelain veneers to correct several kinds of smile flaws. These could be:
Also, porcelain veneers can quickly make crooked teeth look straight. That’s why they are sometimes called instant orthodontics. Although veneers are not like real braces that move teeth into proper alignment, they can be a good alternative if you and Dr. Pointer decide that hiding a slightly rotated tooth is good enough.
Veneers usually require two clinical visits after the initial consultation. At the first visit, Dr. Pointer will prepare your teeth for the veneers, take a digital impression, then secure temporary veneers. At our dental lab, a ceramist will create your veneers using durable aesthetic porcelain and following Dr. Pointer’s design. In a week or so, your final veneers will arrive in our Fort Worth office. You’ll return, and we’ll remove your temporary veneers. Dr. Pointer will then permanently attach the final restorations onto your teeth. He’ll assess the fit and check your occlusion, then make adjustments if necessary. You’ll leave this visit with your gorgeous new smile intact.
Most people are, so the answer to that question is likely yes. But to know for sure, you’ll have to schedule an examination with Dr. Pointer. Before any cosmetic treatment, he will need to ensure that your overall oral health is good. Problems such as cavities or gum disease will be addressed before we begin creating your new smile with porcelain veneers.
