If you have minor issues with your teeth that affect your smile – problems such as chipped teeth, misshaped teeth, or discolored teeth that can’t be whitened with typical whitening products, talk to Dr. Rivera about porcelain veneers. This remarkable dental technology can give you a movie star smile in no time at all, and it can be completed right here in our Victoria, TX, office!
What You Need to Know about
Porcelain veneers consist of an extremely thin layer of porcelain that is applied directly over the patient’s natural teeth. The material is remarkably strong and durable, typically lasting for 9 or 10 years, or even longer for some patients. Best of all, the procedure is fast, easy and painless. Veneers are often an excellent way to resolve minor dental issues, and the end result is an absolutely beautiful smile!
The process begins with Dr. Rivera preparing the surface of your teeth for the porcelain veneer material. Then, the veneers are applied using an adhesive and hardened with a specially designed light. The entire process can usually be completed in a single trip to our office.
Who Are the Best Candidates for
As is the case with any dental procedure, porcelain veneers may not be the right choice for everyone. If you have serious dental issues – such as tooth decay or gum disease, for example – those problems need to be resolve before porcelain veneers are applied. But most dental patients are good candidates for veneers. And the finished product is just beautiful!
