Porcelain Veneers for a Beautiful Smile in San Antonio
Does your smile make you smile? Seriously—the smile that you see in a mirror or in a photograph should make you happy and confident. If not, then perhaps it’s time to build a new smile. That’s right—with porcelain veneers Dr. Troy Jones or Dr. George Knightcan give you a brand new smile that will not only make you happy, but others around you, too.
What Happened To Your Smile?
Whether because of the consequences of time or unusual wear, teeth can lose their attractiveness. Some of the circumstances that can affect the condition of your smile include:
- Chipped teeth
- Broken or fractured teeth
- Teeth that are stained or discolored and that are non-responsive to teeth whitening
- Teeth that are too small or otherwise misshaped
- Slightly rotated or crooked teeth
- Noticeable gaps between teeth
Whether you have just one or two of these flaws or a combination of several, the consequences can be a smile that negatively impacts your daily life. With porcelain veneers, you can have a brand new smile that gives you the confidence to face the world.
Receiving Porcelain Veneers in San Antonio
That first step on the path toward building your new smile begins when you schedule an appointment with one of the dentists in San Antonio. Dr. Jones or Dr. Knight will first need to conduct a complete examination of your mouth to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy enough to support veneers. Then, we’ll take a complete collection of digital x-rays, photographs and impressions of your teeth. This information helps the dentist in San Antonio better plan your new smile. We’ll need to consider the size, shape and color of each tooth that is to receive a veneer.
Once the veneers are designed, placing them usually happens in just two appointments. At the first, a slim layer of tooth enamel is removed. This step is necessary to ensure that each veneer lies evenly in your mouth. While our dental lab creates your beautiful new smile, you’ll wear temporary veneers to protect your prepared teeth. In about two weeks, the permanent set will be ready. Before bonding them into place, Dr. Jones or Dr. Knight will check that each meets their strict standards of perfection.
Once secured, you can expect these strong and durable tooth coverings to last years and years. To ensure the longevity of your porcelain veneers, however, brush with a soft toothbrush, floss daily, and schedule regular checkups at Jones & Knight, DDS, in San Antonio.
