What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted from high-quality dental porcelain. These cosmetic dental restorations are designed to cover the front surface of the teeth, providing a versatile solution for various cosmetic and functional dental concerns. The primary objective of porcelain veneers is to enhance the appearance of natural teeth, addressing imperfections such as discoloration, chips, misalignments, and irregularities in shape.

Whether you’re covering a single tooth or an entire arch, our porcelain veneers can renew your confidence and give you something to smile about. Millions of people get porcelain veneers yearly because they’re a convenient, high-quality solution. Veneers offer many benefits and installation can be completed in just two appointments.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Our veneers in Denton stand out as an exceptional cosmetic dental option, providing patients with a range of benefits unmatched by alternative restorative treatments. Beyond their inherent convenience, veneers offer the following advantages:

  • Minimally-Invasive Procedure: Veneer application involves a minimally-invasive process, preserving more of the natural tooth structure compared to some alternative treatments.
  • Efficiency in Appointments: The procedure is quick and straightforward, allowing for efficient appointments and minimizing disruptions to your daily schedule.
  • Personalized Treatment Plan: Each patient receives a personalized treatment plan, ensuring the veneers address their unique cosmetic concerns and smile goals.
  • Customized Appearance: Veneers are meticulously crafted to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, providing a seamless and aesthetically pleasing result.
  • Longevity: With proper care, porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years, offering a durable and enduring solution for enhancing your smile.
  • Stain Resistance: Porcelain veneers resist stains, maintaining their bright and vibrant appearance over time even in the face of common staining agents.
  • Dental Sensitivity Reduction: The application of veneers can contribute to a reduction in dental sensitivity, enhancing oral comfort and well-being.

The Porcelain Veneers Process at Garden Oaks

Initial Consultation

At our Denton, TX, office, Dr. Ruehle and our skilled team kickstart the porcelain veneers process with a comprehensive initial consultation. This involves a thorough examination of your teeth to assess whether porcelain veneers align with your unique dental needs.

Open communication is fundamental during this phase, allowing you to express your desired outcomes while Dr. Ruehle provides insights into achievable results. This collaborative dialogue not only manages expectations but ensures you’re well-informed about the potential transformations the porcelain veneer procedure can bring.

Tooth Preparation

Before applying porcelain veneers, a minimal amount of tooth reduction is often necessary. This process involves removing a small part of the tooth’s enamel to make room for the veneers. Dr. Ruehle and the team will clean your teeth and match the shade of your custom veneers to your existing teeth to ensure a perfect blend. He may place temporary dental veneers to protect the prepared teeth while the final restorations are being crafted

Impressions and Customization

After the tooth preparation, we’ll take precise impressions of the prepared teeth, often using advanced digital technology. These impressions guide the fabrication of custom porcelain veneers. Additionally, you and your dentist collaborate on selecting the appropriate shade for the veneers to ensure a natural and harmonious appearance.

Bonding Process

Once we receive your veneers, we’ll have you return to our Denton office to finish the last part of the veneer process. We’ll remove the temporary veneers and clean your tooth. We’ll then prepare the tooth surfaces for bonding by etching, which enhances the adhesion of the veneers. Dr. Ruehle will bond the custom veneers to the front surfaces of the teeth using a strong adhesive. This step is crucial for the longevity and stability of the veneers.

After bonding, your cosmetic dentist will evaluate your bite to ensure proper alignment and function. Any necessary adjustments are made to guarantee the bite is comfortable and natural. Final checks involve a thorough assessment of occlusion to confirm the success of the procedure.

Caring for Your Porcelain Veneers

After the initial placement of your porcelain veneers, Dr. Ruehle prioritizes your ongoing oral health by scheduling a follow-up appointment at our practice a few weeks later. During this visit, we assess the condition of your veneers, ensuring they function optimally and maintain their pristine appearance. To maximize the longevity of your veneers, adopting a care routine akin to that for your natural teeth is imperative.

  • Oral Hygiene Practices: Brush twice a day with a soft-bristle toothbrush. Floss at least once a day to remove plaque between teeth and around the veneers.
  • Use Gentle Toothpaste: Choose a toothpaste with gentle ingredients, such as baking soda, to avoid potential scratching.
  • Regular Dental Check-ups: Schedule appointments every six months for Dr. Ruehle to monitor the health of your veneers.
  • Avoid Harmful Habits: Refrain from biting hard objects or using your teeth as tools to prevent damage. Wear a mouthguard if you engage in activities that may pose a risk to your veneers.
  • Mindful Dietary Choices: Limit consumption of staining agents like coffee, tea, and red wine. Avoid excessively hard or sticky foods that could impact the veneers.
