What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic material that strengthen and perfect your teeth. Hand-crafted by skilled artisans, porcelain veneers allow light to pass through them, mimicking the light-handling properties of natural tooth enamel.

These wafer-thin shells are bonded to the front of your teeth to cover and correct just about any dental flaw. Porcelain veneers are the most common cosmetic dentistry procedure because they fix many dental problems. 

Dr. Kyle Clark and his team use only the best labs and the highest quality materials, so our porcelain veneers are beautiful and natural-looking every time. Your family, friends, and colleagues may wonder what’s different about you, but they won’t know you got porcelain veneers unless you tell them!

What to Expect With Porcelain Veneers

After Burkburnett cosmetic dentist Dr. Kyle Clark decides you’re a great candidate for porcelain veneers, a small amount of enamel will be removed from the surface of your tooth. This is done to prepare the tooth to receive the veneer. During your first appointment for veneers, temporary veneers will be put in place while your permanent ones are made in a laboratory.

During your second visit, the permanent porcelain veneers will be bonded to the teeth receiving them. Our Burkburnett dental team will work masterfully to make amazing final touches to the porcelain veneers to provide the stunning smile you expect.

Some patients require what is referred to as “gum recontouring” during the porcelain veneers process; gum recontouring enhances your smile even further. Not all people require gum recontouring, but if necessary, we will explain it to you so you know exactly what it entails.

More About Gum Recontouring

When too much gum tissue covers your smile, your teeth look shorter than they actually are. Too much gum tissue can also make cleaning your teeth properly more difficult, leaving you vulnerable to an increased risk of periodontal disease

Too much gum tissue is caused by a variety of things, including:

  • Hormones
  • Heredity
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Braces
  • Certain medications

Using the most advanced soft-tissue-laser technology available today, we can quickly sculpt away your excess gum tissue to show a stunning smile you’ll be proud to show off.
