Nothing can compare to the feeling of smiling with pride and confidence. Dr. Bruyere and his team want to help you enjoy that feeling every day, for the rest of your life. We offer a wide variety of cosmetic dental solutions to meet the diverse needs of our Longview, TX patients. Porcelain veneers are among the most popular options for improving the appearance of teeth, with a very conservative procedure.

“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”

If you’ve ever wondered how veneers work, think of this quote. Although Aristotle was referring to philosophy when he uttered these famous words, the statement applies to many things, including the science of veneers. Multiple thin layers of a given material are stronger than a solid block. That is why the technique of veneering – which involves applying a thin layer to the surface of something for cosmetic improvement – is so very efficient.

In dentistry, a veneer refers to a layer of porcelain or composite material fixed to the visible surface of a tooth. It can correct any number of cosmetic complaints, as well as some minor tooth damage. Because the veneer is so thin, it requires very little tooth preparation. Yet, due to the strength of layering, it is quite durable.

What a porcelain veneer procedure can accomplish

The first step is a consultation with Dr. Bruyere. He will perform an examination to ensure that you are a suitable candidate. Veneers are an excellent solution for most people with good oral health. They may be used to correct:

Dr. Bruyere creates cosmetic restorations with precision and great attention to detail. He begins with a consultation.
  • Dark or discolored teeth – Whitening can remove superficial stains, but it doesn’t always yield the desired brilliance. Some stains are caused by changes in the tooth or dark inclusions within the enamel. In some cases, a person’s natural tooth color is darker than he or she wants.
  • Asymmetry – One half of your smile should match the other half, like a mirror image. Known as symmetry, this is one of the primary principles of facial esthetics.
  • Tooth shape – If one or more teeth are misshapen, it will detract from the overall appearance of your smile. Additionally, some people are unhappy with the natural shape of their teeth.
  • Disproportionate teeth – The shape and size of teeth should be proportionate to each other, and to other facial features, for the most esthetically pleasing smile.
  • Wear and minor damages – Normal wear and tear on your teeth can grind them down, decreasing the size and changing the shape. Additionally, tiny chips and microfractures in the enamel can create cosmetic concerns and pose oral health risks.

Are you a good candidate?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, the answer to this question is probably, “yes.” However, if your concerns extend beyond cosmetic, Dr. Bruyere may recommend alternate or additional treatments. Because veneers are very thin, they cannot be used to replace a significant portion of the tooth structure.

Broken or badly decayed teeth are better treated with sturdier restorations, such as crowns. Additionally, if you currently have periodontal disease, it should be addressed for the sake of your oral health, as well as the longevity of veneers or other cosmetic dental work.

What to expect?

Dr. Bruyere creates cosmetic restorations with precision and great attention to detail. He begins with a consultation. He will perform an examination, listen to your concerns and goals, then discuss all available options. If you and the doctor decide that veneers are right for you, the process will be completed in three steps.

Planning – The doctor will take impressions and create a wax replica of your smile. This is used to create a mock up, giving you a preview of the final result. The design is refined and perfected according to your esthetic preferences. This serves as a template for your new veneers.

Preparation – During the next appointment, your teeth are shaped and prepared. A local anesthetic may be used, but it is often unnecessary. Veneers are extremely thin, so very little enamel is removed. Therefore, the preparation process is fast, gentle, and comfortable. When it is complete, the doctor will take a new set of impressions, to ensure precision accuracy. Temporary veneers are placed at this time.

The first step is a consultation with Dr. Bruyere. He will perform an examination to ensure that you are a suitable candidate. Veneers are an excellent solution for most people with good oral health.

Placement – Your new veneers are crafted by a quality dental laboratory, which takes approximately three weeks. When they are ready, you will return to our office for your final appointment. After removing the temporaries, Dr. Bruyere will check the appearance and fit of your new veneers. They are then bonded, cured, and finally polished.

Everyone there is really nice and courteous. The cleaning hurt a little but I haven't seen a dentist in 5 years before that so they had to do a lot to get them all clean. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Also they have a smokin hot dental assistant to take your x rays.

I’ve been going to Dr. Bruyere for thirty years. Due to health insurance changes over the years, I’ve seen three other Longview dentists. After the last one, I finally decided Dr. Bruyere is worth paying out of network when necessary...I’m not changing again. He’s simply the best. He goes above and beyond to take my fears into consideration and has never made me feel silly. His staff is top notch, too!

Wonderful staff and genuinely concerned for their clients. I am pregnant and after looking at a washed out filling, they opted to wait on it since it wasn't an emergency ( and avoid any risk to the baby, even if slim) when others may have fixed it just for the business. Loved their concern & attention to our needs over theirs!! Also, we are cash pay and they are great at helping us find ways to make our regular dental care more affordable.
