Do you have several dental imperfections that make you feel embarrassed about smiling? Instead of getting multiple cosmetic treatments, at Allen Smile Design, we offer one customized solution that can do it all, called porcelain veneers. These porcelain shells are built to fix a variety of problems so you can achieve a smile that looks ready for the read carpet. If you’d like to learn whether porcelain veneers in Allen can help you transform your grin into a trait that you’re proud to show off, schedule a consultation with Dr. Lewis today by contacting our office.
Porcelain veneers are thin, strong shells crafted from high-quality dental porcelain. This material’s color can be customized and mimics the natural appearance of tooth enamel by reflecting light. Porcelain is also a non-porous material, which means that your veneers will resist staining, keeping them looking like new for years to come. The veneers are permanently attached to the visible portion of your teeth to conceal a variety of problems, including damage, gaps, and even slight misalignment.
Porcelain veneers in Allen come highly recommended by patients and professionals alike because they are incredibly versatile and offer several unique advantages. Some benefits that you’ll be able to enjoy from having this cosmetic procedure include:

The process of getting porcelain veneers typically takes place over the course of two appointments. Before Dr. Lewis can begin the procedure, she will meet with you to have an initial consultation so she can discuss your goals and wishes and examine your mouth. From here, she’ll be able to make a treatment plan and begin preparing your teeth to receive the veneers. To do this, Dr. Lewis will remove a small amount of your natural enamel to compensate for the thickness of the veneers. This will allow them to lay flush with the rest of your teeth when they’re placed.
We will take impressions of your mouth and place temporary veneers over your prepared teeth. This will allow you to get a feeling and idea of what life will be like once your permanent veneers are placed. You’ll return to our office once we receive your veneers from the laboratory, and we’ll permanently bond them on your natural teeth to conceal cosmetic flaws.
