About Porcelain Veneers
One effective method to improve your smile and conceal crooked, chipped, stained, or decayed teeth is with porcelain veneers at White Lotus Dental. Cosmetic veneers can be life-changing for many men and women, especially those who have spent years feeling self-conscious about the appearance of their teeth. Porcelain veneers are light, thin covers created with porcelain, which are secured to the front of the teeth to enhance the overall look of your smile. They are a cosmetic enhancement that can last for many years and aid in improving the size, color, length, and shape of the teeth. If you are ready for your smile makeover and have been considering porcelain veneers, we invite you to call White Lotus Dental and the office of McKinney, TX dentist Dr. Karuna Peravali to schedule your appointment. Learn more about the amazing benefits veneers can offer you and decide if they're appropriate for your aesthetic and oral health goals.
Porcelain veneers may be used to effectively mask stains and chips in your teeth, improve worn down or misaligned teeth, and fix teeth that are poorly spaced or shaped. At White Lotus Dental, your porcelain veneers will be custom created to fit securely over your teeth for an appealing and natural look. At your consultation, Dr. Peravali will listen to your objectives and concerns so she can personalize your procedure. She may also find out whether you're a good candidate for porcelain veneers by checking the total health of your mouth. You shouldn't have symptoms of periodontal disease, or routinely grind your teeth and clench your jaw if you are contemplating veneers. Before veneers can be recommended, patients should have good oral health, thus a dental exam and cleaning is the first step toward your new smile. If there are issues found during the exam, these can be addressed so that you can move forward with getting your veneers.
What to Expect
As soon as you've decided on your personalized treatment program with Dr. Peravali, she will take dental impressions. Your porcelain veneers might be produced in our office as you wait, or your impressions could be sent to a dental lab where your veneers will be made from high-quality porcelain. As soon as your porcelain veneers are prepared, Dr. Peravali will prep your teeth by taking off a very small layer of enamel from your natural teeth. This allows room for the porcelain veneers and enhances the bond for a more natural outcome that lasts longer. When your porcelain veneers are secured, our dental team can make small adjustments so that your veneers are comfortable and look and feel natural.
Since getting veneers normally doesn't require anesthesia, you should be able to continue your daily tasks following your appointment. You might experience sensitivity to cold and hot meals for a couple of days, but that should fade away. Veneers should be cared for just like your own natural teeth with regular flossing and brushing. While cosmetic veneers are stain resistant compared to natural teeth, you still need to be aware of drinks and foods that are known for staining teeth and care for your veneers to keep them white. To prevent harming your veneers, you shouldn't chew on hard objects, like ice, your fingernails, or hard candy. Continue to make dental examinations and cleanings at White Lotus Dental in McKinney, TX so that we can track the condition of your porcelain veneers, teeth, gums, and general oral health. Dr. Peravali and our trusted dental assistants will tell you if your cosmetic veneers have to be replaced or repaired.
Porcelain veneers are an elective treatment so they're usually not covered by dental insurance. Veneers are considered a huge cosmetic upgrade for so many of our patients, thus our McKinney, TX dental office works with patients on various payment options and low-interest financing to make your veneers more affordable. At your first veneers consultation, we will personalize your treatment to meet your needs and budget. We will take the necessary time to discuss a quote for your veneers and explore your payment choices.
