Thanks to modern dental technology, movie star smiles aren’t just for the rich and famous. In fact, you can enjoy a picture perfect smile in no time at all with porcelain veneers. Dr. Burnett and his trained staff of dental professionals at Burnett Dentistry are pleased to offer porcelain veneers as one of the many smile makeover services we provide to our patients in and around the Garland, TX, area.
Not Your Grandmother’s Porcelain!
When you think of “porcelain,” you might envision porcelain china dishes like your grandmother might have owned. But dental porcelain is much different. Rather than something fragile that has to be handled with care, dental porcelain is actually a remarkably strong and durable material. It can be easily applied directly over a patient’s natural teeth, and it typically lasts for many years. Dental porcelain is stain-resistant and an effective way to protect the patient’s teeth – not to mention creating a stunningly beautiful smile!
Are Porcelain Veneers Right for You?
Porcelain veneers are often an excellent way to address relatively minor dental issues, such as chipped teeth, misshaped teeth, teeth with gaps in between them, and badly stained teeth that can’t be whitened with regular whitening products. If you live with any of these dental issues, talk to Dr. Burnett about whether porcelain veneers might be the right choice for you.
How Porcelain Veneers Are Applied
The process involved in having new porcelain veneers applied is surprisingly easy and fast. Dr. Burnett simply applies the dental porcelain material directly over the patient’s existing natural teeth using an adhesive, then speeds up the hardening using a specially designed light. The entire process can usually be completed in a single trip to our Garland, TX, office, and the end result is an absolutely beautiful smile!
