If you could wave a magic wand and change something about your smile, would you? Most people say yes. As men and women mature, the appearance of their smiles tends to change—often not for the better. Stains and discoloration, a chipped or broken tooth, teeth that are unevenly spaced or that are worn down can all make you hesitate to smile with confidence. Fortunately, Dr. Montgomery has a solution. With porcelain veneers in Plano, he can cover any number or combination of cosmetic flaws so your smile is truly magical!
What are porcelain veneers? The simple answer to that question is that they are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments around. With these micro-thin sheaths of fine dental porcelain, your cosmetic dentist in Plano can change the appearance of your smile. Each individual veneer is adhesively bonded to the facial side of the tooth for which it was custom designed. One can used to cover up a single tooth or several can be customized to create a picture perfect smile.
To start the process, Dr. Montgomery will meet with you to talk about what imperfections you want to cover and the smile you’re aiming for. If you want bring photos of friends, family and even celebrities with smiles you aspire to enjoy, too. After all, a picture speaks a thousand words!
Plano dentist Dr. Montgomery will also check for signs of tooth decay or gum disease, both of which will need to be taken care before beginning the process of placing veneers.
Before your veneers can be placed, Dr. Montgomery will need to remove a thin layer of enamel from your teeth. It’s a small amount, but makes all the difference in the way your veneers fit. With this slim layer of enamel removed, your veneers will be flush and well aligned. After this step, we’ll take impressions of your teeth. This allows us to make temporary acrylic veneers for you to wear while our cosmetic dental lab hand crafts your customized set.
These will arrive in our office in just a couple of weeks. Dr. Montgomery will examine each one before permanently bonding it in place. Once the process is completed, you’ll see a smile that is straight, white, strong and well sized for your mouth and facial features.
