Have you been considering some cosmetic dentistry? Maybe you have some long-standing esthetic issues with your smile and you are hoping to find an effective remedy? If so, Jack Fong, DDS in Amarillo, TX would like you to learn a bit about porcelain veneers, which some refer to as dental veneers. As your preferred dentist in Amarillo, we are dedicated to patient education, and we want you to know all the facts. To ensure this, we provide the following porcelain veneers FAQs as a sort of introduction to this innovative treatment.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

As you might guess, this is one of the more common porcelain veneers FAQs. Veneers are a lot like the sound and are very thin shells of durable porcelain designed to fit over your teeth to correct cosmetic and esthetic issues.

What Issues Do Veneers Address?

Many of our patients are surprised to learn from our cosmetic dentist that veneers address such a wide range of issues as deeply stained teeth unable to be whitened, cracked or broken teeth, unevenly sized teeth, gapped teeth, mildly crooked teeth, and more. To determine if the issues you would like corrected are viable candidates, you need only meet with our porcelain veneers specialist for an assessment.

How Is It Done?

This is another of the most common porcelain veneers FAQs, and is a good question. The treatment takes two visits to the office. During the first, your teeth are prepared for veneers, usually by the removal of some enamel. Temporary veneers are made from molds and measurements taken, and a specialized lab receives this data and creates your permanent veneers. The second visit will be when the permanent veneers are bonded to the teeth, and our dentist ensures they are a good and comfortable fit.

Will They Be Difficult or Obvious to Wear?

No. We ensure that your veneers look just like the natural teeth around them, including the color. They are designed to improve the looks of the smile and have a very natural and esthetically pleasing look.
