Dr. Mentesana has decades of experience transforming smiles with porcelain veneers. Reshape chipped, worn, or unshapely teeth, whiten discolored teeth or align crooked teeth with veneers.

A dental veneer, as the name implies, is a thin “shell” that is designed to cover your teeth. They provide a brighter, cleaner, more uniform shape, color, and overall appearance. Veneers are affixed to your teeth to provide consistent color, hide cracks or chips, and provide even, symmetrical lines to eliminate jagged smiles.

Veneers can be used to cover imperfections such as cracks and discoloration. Veneers can also change the shape of teeth and correct minor misalignment of the teeth. Dr. Mentesana has perfected veneers making them natural-looking and beautiful. She uses Emax porcelain veneers which are very durable and easy to take care of. Veneers can accomplish goals that teeth whitening alone cannot. Veneers give you total control over the color and shape of the teeth, you can design your smile from scratch. If you want a smile you can be proud of schedule an appointment today.


PORCELAIN VENEERS IN Allen

Porcelain veneers take more time to apply, which may necessitate more than one visit. This artificial material most closely resembles the natural enamel of real teeth, in both texture and the way it reflects light. Because this is a more complicated, comprehensive procedure, it can take two weeks for a complete veneer application to be completed when choosing porcelain.

However, porcelain is a strong, durable material. Aside from the usual good dental hygiene practices of keeping teeth and gums free of plaque and tartar, with responsible care, you are unlikely to require additional professional maintenance to keep porcelain veneers intact.


VENEER PROCEDURE

During your porcelain veneer procedure, your teeth will be numb, nitrous oxide can also be given to relax you if desired. A thin layer of the enamel on the front surface of the teeth is removed to make room for the thickness of the new veneer(s). An impression of the teeth is made in order to make a model of the teeth for the veneers to be made on. After the impression is made, a temporary veneer(s) is made for you to wear while the porcelain veneers are being made at the dental laboratory. Once the veneers are made, the temporary veneers are removed and the porcelain veneers are bonded to the teeth.

ARE VENEERS PERMANENT?

While veneers are meant to be permanent, like natural teeth, they must be cared for properly. Veneers, like natural teeth, can chip or break if they are not protected from teeth grinding and clenching. The part of the tooth that is covered up with the veneer can still get tooth decay if plaque is allowed to collect on the teeth.

HOW LONG DO VENEERS LAST?

Veneers will last until they chip or break. A veneer will have to be replaced if the tooth under the veneer gets tooth decay. Wearing a nightguard to protect the teeth and veneers from forces of clenching and grinding will protect the teeth and veneers from chipping and breaking and also help the bond to last longer between the tooth and the veneer. Keeping the teeth free of bacteria and plaque also helps ensure that the teeth do not decay under the veneers.

ARE THERE ANY PROBLEMS WITH VENEERS?

There are few problems with veneers if they are cared for properly. Maintenance for veneers includes protecting them from teeth clenching and grinding with a nightguard, daily brushing and flossing to remove plaque to reduce the instance of decay and regular checkups and x rays to discover decay early before it can do enough damage that would cause the veneer to need replacement. If the tooth under the veneer gets decay, the veneer can fall off.
