Patients with imperfections in their smiles may be excited to learn that Longview area dentist, Dr. Clint Bruyere, has a wide range of restorative solutions to help them in addressing these problems. Dr. Clint Bruyere can discuss with patients the many ways in which they can achieve a more beautiful smile.
Cosmetic solutions such as porcelain veneers are a wonderful method of repairing imperfections. When patients are unhappy with their smile due to fractures, unusually shaped teeth, or permanent staining, they may feel as though they don’t have options for achieving a beautiful smile. Thanks to cosmetic dentistry and the use of porcelain veneers, many of these patients find an affordable way to rejuvenate their smiles.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that are made to cover problem areas. They bond over the front of teeth and can hide issues that concern many patients. They can be used to eliminate gaps between teeth as well as address short or unattractive teeth.
Dr. Clint Bruyere reviews with his patients the benefits of porcelain veneers. Not only are they natural looking, they are easy to place. Most patients only need a week or two from start to finish to prepare their smile for veneers, and to have them made through our quality ceramist. Patients will need to have their teeth reduced slightly before impressions are made to avoid extra bulk after placement. However, this is done in a conservative method to maintain as much of the natural tooth structure as possible. The impressions allow the ceramist to fabricate a beautiful veneer for bonding over the natural tooth to hide imperfections that may negatively affect the way one looks when they smile, laugh, or speak with others.
