Teeth can attract attention to your face, affect how others respond to you, and boost your confidence. If you do not have naturally beautiful teeth, cosmetic dental care can improve the aesthetics of your smile. Veneers are thin porcelain shells covering teeth and offering a natural look that can enhance your smile’s appearance. In addition, dental veneers can solve gaps between teeth, broken or stained teeth, or uneven and crooked teeth. Smile Land Family Dental offers porcelain veneers as a cosmetic and restorative treatment option for our dental care patients in San Antonio, TX.
Porcelain Veneers in San Antonio, TX
To begin dental veneer treatment, we remove the thin structure of your enamel and take a dental impression to send to a dental lab. The lab creates porcelain veneers that fit precisely. Then, we cement the veneers to your tooth. After treatment, avoid biting your teeth to prevent pressure on your brand-new veneers. Porcelain veneers should provide many years of beautiful wear.
What are Lumineers?
Lumineers are a type of veneer that can be tougher than other brands of veneers and, therefore, can be made very thin. Typically, porcelain veneers are 0.5 mm thick, about the thickness of a fingernail. Lumineers can go down a little thinner at 0.3 mm wide. Since they are so thin, the teeth do not have to be shaved down, and they can be placed directly over unprepared teeth without being too bulky. Lumineers can even be placed over existing crowns or bridgework without replacing them. No shots or drilling make Lumineers appealing to many patients.
