Our San Antonio veneers are porcelain shells that sit on the front, outside surface of your teeth, providing a natural looking mask to any cosmetic defects that have damaged the appearance of your smile. San Antonio veneers dentist Dr. John Moore custom-designs these veneers shells to provide you with the best possible smile you can get.
Why do I need Veneers?
Over time, the thin, hard white substance covering your teeth, known as enamel, may become worn, dulled, and unusually discolored. Habits such as drinking soda, coffee, tea, smoking, and using certain medications can cause the wearing down and discoloration of your teeth.
In addition, teeth will eventually wear down as people age, and the extended use that comes with it. Grinding your teeth can also cause abnormalities such as uneven teeth, chipping, and fractures. Aged teeth are also more likely to have chips, cracks, or a generally uneven appearance.
Porcelain veneers can help repair your damaged smile, by covering up any chips, cracks, and stains, and by filling in the spacing gaps. In fact, porcelain veneers have been known to be an affordable cosmetic dental alternative to orthodontic braces, because the placement of dental veneers is non-invasive.
About the Dental Veneers Procedure:
Before we begin any procedure, we recommend scheduling an appointment for a one-on-one consultation with our San Antonio Dentist, Dr. John Moore, to see if this cosmetic dentistry procedure is right for you. During this initial consultation we will determine whether veneers are the best way to improve your smile, and answer any remaining questions you may have regarding variables like the “cost of veneers” and “how many veneers will I need?”
Once Dr. Moore has determined that dental veneers are your best option, we will take an impression of your teeth in order to properly customize your veneer mold to the shape, size, and position of your natural teeth. We then place temporary shells onto the tooth surface until the final ones have been crafted.
When the final shells have been formed, we will line them up against your teeth to ensure a proper, snug fit, and your satisfaction. We then bond the shells to the front of your teeth, and you’re set!
