Crystal Creek Dental, Implants and Orthodontics – Your Plano Dental Veneers Specialist
At Crystal Creek Dental, Implants and Orthodontics, here in Plano Texas, our dentist Dr. An Q. Le and his staff specialize in porcelain dental veneers. Patients looking for a painless option in improving their smile often choose dental veneers due to their versatility. Veneers are an excellent way to improve tooth appearance or imperfections in one’s smile. Dental veneers are often sought after as a way of covering chipped, cracked, gapped or uneven teeth. Sometimes after years of staining, veneers are the best option for brightening a smile without the sensitivity that some might experience with teeth whitening.
When one is considering dental veneers, it is important to choose a specialist that takes time to properly inspect, determine size and color match the veneers for your mouth. When you come in to our Plano office our dentist and staff will ensure that your dental veneers are a perfect fit for your mouth.
Here at out Plano office, we specialize in dental veneers that are permanently cemented to your existing teeth. Due to this permanence of veneers and “just like real teeth” solution, it is important for us to take the time with our patients to get it right from the beginning. We use a quality laboratory for the production of our veneers for a perfect fit and to ensure that you have veneers that will last.
Once you come in to our Plano office, and decide that veneers are the right choice for you, our dentist and staff will determine the correct sizing and color while consulting your overall appearance goals. Color-matching your veneers to your surrounding teeth is key in creating the new smile you are trying to achieve so that it looks natural and is one that you are proud to show off to the world. Sometimes patients choose to whiten surrounding teeth so that you can color match your veneers so that your smile is brighter. Consulting with our dentist and staff on your goals as far as color is key in determining the particular shade of your veneers. The appearance of veneers, when done by a specialist like Dr. Le, is done so that the veneers look natural.
Typically, once color has been determined and the veneers are sent out for production it takes approximately 2-4 weeks to get them back and ready for permanent placement. In some cases when one considers that they have a particular unsightly smile or maybe due to some extreme damage or an accident temporary veneers can be utilized. This is more of a case by case situation and should be consulted with the dentist.
A common question that we have been asked in our office is if veneers can fall off. A very direct answer for this is that if you get your dental veneers from a specialist then one can expect that the structure of the veneer is made of porcelain that is incredibly strong. This porcelain should be bonded to the structure of your actual tooth permanently. The only way that a quality dental veneer would be damaged is if you experience an accident or maybe bit down too hard onto a fork or spoon. It’s worth noting that these sorts of things occur with real teeth as well and funny enough are common reasons one comes into the office looking into veneers as a possible fix for a chipped, cracked or damaged tooth. It is important, when looking into veneers as a possible cosmetic fix to ensure that you choose a specialist due to the permanence and desired quality of the dental veneer and bonding used.
