How Do We Get My Veneers To Look Natural?

“A lot of what I do here in McKinney is to redo old veneers, and we’re passionate about getting it right. The newer porcelain we have now in our practice is extremely realistic. We’re very blessed because the porcelain we work with now allows us to create teeth that look just like natural teeth. They’re transparent, extremely strong, and durable. So, we get the best of both worlds.

When we sit down and design your smile, we’ll discuss whether you want a Hollywood white smile, a natural white smile, just a little bit of an upgrade, or if you want to hit it out of the park. Whatever your desires are, we have the material to follow through and provide that for you. Redoing veneers is something we unfortunately have to do, but we’ll do it with gusto and make your smile as gorgeous as you can imagine.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin shells made of porcelain or composite resin that are custom-designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. They are an excellent solution for improving the appearance of teeth that are discolored, chipped, misaligned, or have gaps between them. Veneers can create a uniform, attractive appearance, giving you a smile makeover with long-lasting results.

Why Choose Porcelain Veneers?

At McKinney Dentist, we use the latest advancements in dental materials, and our preferred choice for veneers is porcelain. Here are some of the reasons why:

  • Natural Appearance: Porcelain veneers mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth. They are translucent, allowing light to pass through and reflect off the inner layers of your tooth, which gives them a lifelike appearance.
  • Durability: Porcelain is a strong and durable material that can withstand the forces of biting and chewing. With proper care, porcelain veneers can last for many years.
  • Stain Resistance: Unlike natural teeth, porcelain veneers are resistant to stains from coffee, tea, red wine, and other foods and drinks. This ensures that your smile stays bright and beautiful.

How We Ensure a Natural-Looking Smile

Creating a natural-looking smile with veneers requires a combination of skill, experience, and the right materials. Here’s how Dr. Marvin Berlin and the team at McKinney Dentist achieve stunning results:

  1. Comprehensive Consultation: The process begins with a thorough consultation. Dr. Berlin will discuss your goals and preferences, whether you want a Hollywood-white smile or a more natural look. Understanding your desires helps us create a smile that suits your personality and facial features.
  2. Custom Design: Each set of veneers is custom-designed for you. We take detailed impressions of your teeth and use advanced imaging technology to design veneers that fit perfectly and look natural.
  3. High-Quality Materials: We use high-quality porcelain that closely mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel. This material is not only strong and durable but also translucent, allowing it to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.
  4. Precision Craftsmanship: Our dental laboratory technicians are skilled artisans who craft each veneer with precision. They pay attention to details such as color, shape, and translucency to ensure that your veneers look just like natural teeth.
  5. Expert Application: Dr. Berlin’s expertise in cosmetic dentistry ensures that your veneers are applied correctly. The veneers are bonded to your teeth with a strong adhesive, and any adjustments are made to ensure a perfect fit.

The Veneer Placement Process

Getting veneers typically involves a few visits to our office. Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Initial Consultation: During your first visit, we will discuss your goals, examine your teeth, and determine if veneers are the right solution for you. We will also take X-rays and impressions of your teeth.
  2. Preparation: In the next visit, a small amount of enamel is removed from the front of your teeth to make room for the veneers. Impressions of your prepared teeth are taken and sent to our dental laboratory.
  3. Temporary Veneers: While your permanent veneers are being crafted, you may receive temporary veneers to protect your teeth and maintain your appearance.
  4. Final Placement: Once your custom veneers are ready, Dr. Berlin will check their fit and appearance. After any necessary adjustments, the veneers are bonded to your teeth with a special adhesive, and you leave our office with a stunning new smile.

Caring for Your Veneers

Taking care of your veneers is simple and similar to caring for your natural teeth:

  • Good Oral Hygiene: Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss daily to keep your gums and teeth healthy.
  • Avoid Hard Foods: While porcelain veneers are durable, it’s a good idea to avoid biting into very hard foods, such as ice or hard candies, which could damage the veneers.
  • Regular Dental Check-Ups: Visit McKinney Dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings. This helps ensure that your veneers and overall oral health are maintained.
