Do chips, gaps, or discoloration make you want to hide your smile? With veneers, from Dr. Gent at SoLa Dental of Austin, you can easily correct your teeth's imperfections to help you have a more confident, beautiful smile.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made from porcelain, designed to cover the front side of your teeth. Teeth don’t need to healthy, we can make them healthy with veneers and we can make gums healthy if they aren’t. Also we can make huge, dramatic, life-changing improvements to smiles! Yes they are ideally suited for patients whose teeth are in relatively good shape and have a stable bite, but please don’t underestimate what we can achieve with them!
When done correctly on patients with a stable bite and good oral hygiene, veneers are designed to last decades and do not require much more special care than natural teeth. However, common sense is necessary. What is bad for your teeth will probably be bad for your veneers. Proper brushing and flossing are critically important as are regular visits to our Austin, TX dental office for checkups and professional cleanings.
Veneer treatment at SoLa Dental of Austin is unique because of the technology we use to create your veneers. Dr. Gent utilizes advanced CEREC® technology to digitally capture images of your teeth, design the veneers, and create them right here in our office! Since the veneers are made in our office, we can have a full cosmetic case ready for delivery in as short as 24 hours. This same technology is what allows the completion of smaller cases to be completed in a single visit. In addition, since Dr. Gent is the ceramist for your veneers, there is no loss of communication between the doctor and an outside laboratory. This helps to guarantee that your veneers are as natural-looking as possible.
During your initial consultation at SoLa Dental of Austin, we will discuss your oral health needs, aesthetic goals, and ultimate expectations. It is imperative to begin with the end in mind before any specific treatment is discussed. Additionally, a detailed clinical examination including digital X-rays are necessary to evaluate your overall dental health in order to address all issues, both cosmetic and functional.
