Enjoying dark foods and beverages can dull the whiteness of your smile, leaving you feeling self-conscious in social settings. This problem can be compounded if the teeth also have small chips or old fillings that no longer match the shade of the surrounding enamel.
One of the most effective options for improving a chipped or stained tooth in Dallas, Texas, is to have your dentist, Dr. Jeffrey V. Jones, fit the tooth with a porcelain dental veneer.
Dental veneers are made of a custom-shaped, natural-looking porcelain material that is designed to fit over the faces of the teeth in your smile. The veneers are custom made in a dental lab to match the natural shape of the teeth. This makes them indistinguishable from the natural tooth enamel. Dental veneers can be shaded to appear just like your natural white enamel.
At your initial appointment, our Jeff Jones, DDS team will examine all of the teeth in your smile and take X-rays to make sure each tooth has sufficient enamel to mount a veneer. If one or two teeth lack the sufficient enamel to anchor a dental veneer, our team might recommend having the entire enamel layer of the tooth replaced with a porcelain crown.
Your dentist will then form an impression of your smile. The impression will be sent to the dental lab that makes your new dental veneers.
Dr. Jeffrey V. Jones will call you to schedule your second appointment so he can install the dental veneers once they are created. To install them, he will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth and will cement your new dental veneers in place.
