If you’re looking for a new smile from a dentist in Austin, TX, NW Austin Family Dentistry has you covered. Dental veneers can give you the Hollywood smile you’ve been dreaming of! At Northwest Austin Family Dentistry, we offer comprehensive family dentistry near you.
Dental veneers are thin shells of composite or porcelain material that cover your natural teeth. They’re affixed by a powerful cement that holds them securely in place. Veneers require permanent alteration of the tooth before they’re affixed. Usually, this involves shaping the tooth to make a perfect fit with the veneer covering.
Veneers are considered part of cosmetic dentistry. They correct uneven teeth, worn and chipped teeth, discoloration, and thinning enamel. Veneers have the same translucence of natural teeth, making their color and shine identical to the fabulous pearly whites of the red-carpet stars.
Everyone! Veneers work best for:
Discolored or stained teeth. Sometimes even the best tooth whitening systems can’t fix severe stains. Veneers are a fast, affordable solution.
Worn enamel and wear and tear. Enamel gets worn down over time. A lifetime of tiny pits and nicks in the tooth surface accumulates and causes a dull, even tarnished appearance. Veneers cover that up, leaving you with gorgeous teeth.
Uneven teeth. The biting surfaces of teeth can become uneven over time. Veneers correct this problem.
Veneer fitting usually takes two visits. Your family dentist at NW Austin Family Dentistry first examines your teeth carefully. This includes carefully choosing a veneer color that best matches your natural teeth.
Next, your teeth will be carefully sculpted to fit the veneers. Note that the veneers are also shaped to meet your natural tooth!
Finally, your veneers will be fixed to your teeth with a powerful adhesive. You’re ready for the red carpet!
