Dental veneers close gaps, whiten teeth and improve tooth shape with minimal preparation required.
ABILENE, TX, June 15, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, the teeth are an intricate canvas. Not all dentists are equal in their abilities to truly change a smile for the better. That's why Abilene dentist Dr. Jeff Webb reminds patients to go to a dentist whose experience and knowledge in the dental veneers field truly makes him or her an expert.
"Dental veneers are a cosmetic dentistry service that can truly change a patient's smile," Dr. Webb says. "However, they are a scientific breakthrough that still requires artistry and experience to expertly place."
Dental veneers are tooth-like covering that can change the shape, size and appearance of the teeth-a California dentist who worked in the film industry initially conceptualized them. He used to glue false teeth onto actors' real ones in an attempt to make a dreaded villain appear scarier or correct a leading lady's uneven smile.
While the dentist had the right idea, he did not have the right adhesive or materials that provide long-lasting results. Fortunately, Dr. Webb does have these tools on-hand at his Abilene dentist's office.
The process to create porcelain veneers is a multi-step one. It starts with a consultation at Dr. Webb's Abilene, Texas, dentist office. Dr. Webb can discuss the veneers process with you and evaluate your teeth to determine if you are a good candidate for dental veneers. Some example of dental imperfections porcelain veneers can correct includes stained, slightly gapped, chipped or worn-down teeth.
If you would like to move forward with veneers placement, Dr. Webb will schedule a follow-up visit with you for veneer preparation. This involves removing a small portion of outer dental enamel. This makes veneers easier to adhere to the teeth, helping them to appear more even with the surrounding teeth. He can then take a mold of your teeth to send to a laboratory. At this laboratory, your veneers are custom-created.
When the veneers come in from the laboratory, you will return to Dr. Webb's office to evaluate how well the veneers may fit on your teeth. He may need to slightly shape or adjust the veneers before he adheres them to your own teeth.
"Look for a dentist who carefully evaluates your new veneers when they arrive from the laboratory," Dr. Webb, an Abilene cosmetic dentist, recommends. "By ensuring your new veneers are exactly what you were hoping for from your initial consultation, you are most likely to be pleased with your results."
