Dental veneers are often touted as the cosmetic fix-all because of their many advantages and more conservative tooth preparation. A veneer is a thin porcelain or composite facing that is bonded to the front surface of a tooth. Since a dental veneer is so thin, there is very minimal tooth structure that must be removed during preparation.Veneers are a great way to change the shape of a tooth, the color or a tooth, and even close gaps between teeth. In most circumstances, veneers are fabricated out of a thin sheet of glass (porcelain). The porcelain is custom made very similar to how clay pots are made. Custom shades of porcelain are hand crafted onto a replica of your tooth and fired in a furnace. The laboratory technician uses various shades of porcelain to achieve your desired shade color. The most natural-looking teeth are not simply white, but a combination of opacities and translucencies that give the veneers a natural-looking appearance.If you have rotated, discolored, or gapped teeth, dental veneers in Dallas, Texas, can give you the smile you’ve always wanted without the hassle of braces.
