Who is the right candidate in the Spring area for correcting imperfect teeth with porcelain veneers?

 In Veneers

Do you have imperfections in your smile that make you less likely to smile, laugh, and speak with others? Do you feel as though these imperfections could benefit from correction, which could increase your self-esteem? Do you want to find an affordable, long-term solution to revitalize your smile? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may want to take the time to learn more about porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic, which are custom-made to bond over the front of natural teeth. They are often placed for cosmetic purposes and are intended for long-term use. Veneers are best for covering imperfect teeth for patients in and around the Spring area who are ready to enjoy a more beautiful smile!

Dr. Robert G. Dernick, DDS of the Spring and Conroe areas provides patients with veneers if they are the best candidates for use. Candidates of porcelain veneers must have realistic expectations of what porcelain veneers can achieve and must have an overall healthy smile before the process begins. It is essential that patients understand that tooth decay and periodontal disease can still develop underneath the porcelain veneers, so regular visits to the dentist are required for examinations and x-rays to catch problems early enough to treat them before extensive damage occurs.

During the initial appointment to determine candidacy, patients can also learn about the process of obtaining veneers. It takes a few weeks from start to finish, but the long-lasting restorations are well worth the wait. Dr. Robert G. Dernick removes a thin portion of the natural tooth enamel before taking impressions, which are sent out to a ceramist who custom-creates the porcelain veneers with the dentist’s specific instructions. This ensures the new veneers blend in with the existing teeth once bonded into place.

If imperfect teeth have you feeling embarrassed or self-conscious about the appearance of your smile, contact Dr. Robert G. Dernick, DDS today to book an appointment for an examination and consultation visit. His practice works with new and existing patients to help them achieve the smile of their dreams in a way that was once never thought possible!
