If you have been considering giving your smile a makeover, you will want to give some serious thought to porcelain veneers. Widely praised for the impressive transformations they yield, porcelain veneers are a great means of achieving your ideal smile. To learn more about what makes porcelain veneers so popular, consult the following list from your Waco TX cosmetic dentist, Dr. Corbet Locke.

Advantages of Choosing Porcelain Veneers

  1. They offer fast smile transformations. If you have been dreaming for years about changing your smile, you probably won’t have patience for a long, drawn out treatment plan. You deserve quick, high-quality results, and that is exactly what porcelain veneers deliver. A smile transformation that makes use of porcelain veneers can be completed in as few as two dental visits. During the first visit, Dr. Locke will examine your teeth to ensure they are healthy and then prepare them to receive the veneers. Tooth preparation requires Dr. Locke to remove a small amount of enamel from each tooth in order to compensate for the thickness of the veneers. After preparing your teeth, Dr. Locke may provide you with a temporary set of veneers to wear while your permanent set is made for you. Once your permanent set arrives at our office, Dr. Locke will remove the temporary veneers and bond your permanent set to your teeth, completing your smile transformation.

  2. They have a reflective quality. Our natural teeth catch and reflect light in a distinctive way. Veneers mimic this reflective quality and thus are able to pass for natural teeth even under close scrutiny.

  3. They mimic the translucence of natural teeth. Our teeth are not fully opaque, that is to say they allow some light to shine through them. This characteristic is best observed when teeth are brightly illuminated, but by imitating this unique quality, veneers are able to achieve an astounding level of realism.
