How would you like a brand new, dazzling movie star-quality smile? Thanks to natural white veneers, you can have a smile that rivals any celebrity. Dr. Clint Bruyere with the Clint Bruyere, DDS team has years of experience with porcelain teeth restoration and can bring out the very best in your smile.
A porcelain veneer is a wafer-thin shell processed in a lab that is placed over the front teeth, changing their color from stained to brilliant white. They can also change the size, length, and shape of your teeth, giving you the appearance of a perfectly uniform smile.
In most cases, the laboratory only requires a small preparation of 0.5 millimeters to craft the perfect veneer that won’t make your teeth look too thick.
A few reasons why some people may not qualify for veneers include:
To get started, Dr. Bruyere will determine if you’re an ideal candidate for veneers through a comprehensive exam. He will look at your overall oral health, including gum evenness, gum disease, jaw joints, and any possible cavities. If you meet the qualifications, he will take molds of your teeth and send them off to a lab where they make a wax-up of your teeth to be treated. This process will allow you to preview the shape and length of your future veneers.
If you’re satisfied with the wax-up, Dr. Bruyere will schedule your next appointment to prepare your tooth enamel, take a couple of molds, and place your temporary veneer as the lab begins making your restoration.
Then once it’s time for your delivery appointment, he will remove the temporary veneers and clean your teeth of any residue. The new veneers will be placed and measured to ensure accurate color, appearance, and fit. Then Dr. Bruyere will bond your veneers to your teeth using a powerful dental cement and adhesive.
Your smile can be transformed into something magnificent with no invasive surgery or messy mold treatments. Contact the Clint Bruyere, DDS team, today at (903) 708-6116 to schedule your consultation. Our office is located at 444 Forest Square Suite G, Longview, TX.
