Porcelain veneers are a great way to transform and improve the appearance of your smile. A porcelain veneer is a layer of porcelain that covers the front of a tooth’s surface in order to address minor repairs and problems. They are bonded in place with special agents to ensure they stay secure over time, similar to a crown. Dr. Dernick will consult with each patient individually to assess his or her dental situation and determine the best solution.
Veneers are best used when addressing minor issues with the teeth. They can be used to correct alignment, cover cracks and chips, and change the color and/or size of your natural tooth. They are often used on the front teeth for a variety of cosmetic concerns. They are sometimes used in complete smile makeovers and transformations. Porcelain veneers are considered truly cosmetic, as they are not used to improve the function of the teeth or fix a severe dental problem or issue a patient may be experiencing. It is important to talk to Dr. Dernick about the possibilities of insurance coverage when considering this type of restoration.
Dr. Dernick specializes in porcelain veneers, and is one of the few practices in town that has their own in-office laboratory for creating veneers and crowns for patients. The Woodlands Dental Group has a full-time ceramist in house, who is a certified dental technician that creates restorations such as crowns, bridges, and veneers within the office. This is extremely beneficial and convenient for his patients, and allows him to offer highly customized restorative pieces quickly and effectively. Changes and adjustments in veneers can be made faster, which is a huge advantage for patients that don’t have much time to commit to the dentist’s chair for several appointments.
Many patients enjoy the benefits of porcelain veneers when it comes to restoring, changing, and rejuvenating their smile. The staff at Dr. Dernick’s office provides quality veneers for their patients, and focuses on creating only the most natural, beautiful restorations. If you have been considering a smile makeover with quality porcelain veneers, contact Dr. Robert Dernick to get started in creating the smile you’ve always wanted! A simple consultation can educate you on the benefits of porcelain veneers, and provide you with a wide variety of options available for rejuvenating your smile!
The other alternative is the use of at-home whitening kits. While these do take a little longer, the results are the same and are less expensive than the in-office whitening. Dr. Dernick will create a custom-fitted whitening tray for his patients and send them home with materials and instructions on how to complete their at-home whitening. The trays are worn for approximately one to two hours a day for a period of one to two weeks, until the patient achieves the results they desired.
While sensitivity may be an issue with teeth whitening, the side effect is typically mild and temporary and goes away soon after the whitening process has been completed. Both procedures are safe, effective ways to whiten your teeth without detrimental effects to the enamel of the tooth.
While there are over-the-counter whitening products that may initially be less expensive, they are not nearly as effective as the bleaching solutions offered by Dr. Dernick. If you are looking for a professional teeth whitening session, call today to schedule a consultation or whitening appointment to brighten your smile quickly, easily, and effectively!
