Porcelain and No-Prep Veneers in Sherman, Texas - Dr. Gray - Cosmetic Dentist
Veneers are a popular and effective treatment for completely transforming the appearance of your teeth to give you a smile that is free of cosmetic flaws.
At the Sherman, TX cosmetic dental office of Bill Gray, DDS, we focus on comprehensive dentistry and are especially skilled at restoring smiles that have been damaged by teeth grinding and excessive wear and tear with porcelain veneer therapy. Dr. Gray and his staff perform many full smile rehabilitations with veneers and can help your teeth look healthy, white, and damage free for a stunning new smile.
A dental veneer is a thin slice of durable and tooth-colored porcelain that Dr. Gray places over the fronts of teeth, so they appear more evenly sized and a bright shade of white. By covering the front of teeth, veneers can also conceal flaws such as small chips and cracks. To help you achieve your ideal smile, Dr. Gray offers two types of veneer therapy:
Traditional Porcelain Veneers – These porcelain shells are permanently bonded in place after teeth have been prepared slightly. This tooth preparation is essential in ensuring that your veneers do not add extra bulk to teeth and look as natural as possible. Traditional veneers are ideal for patients with severely stained teeth, for whom bleaching has been unsuccessful, or those with slightly crowded teeth who want a more even smile.
No-Prep Veneers – With prep-less veneers, Dr. Gray does not complete the initial step of polishing and buffing surface enamel, as these porcelain shells are even thinner than the traditional variety. While they are thin, prep-less veneers will add some additional thickness to un-prepared teeth, making them ideal for patients whose teeth are thin or small. No-prep veneers also work well for patients who teeth appear pushed back and need some additional thickness to appear in-line and even.
Among available cosmetic treatments for restoring your smile, veneers better conserve natural teeth. Patients who require a complete rehabilitation with veneers can enjoy a whole new smile and still have most of their natural teeth structure. If you don’t like the shape, color, or position of your teeth, our veneer treatment can help. We ensure that your smile transformation with veneers allows your teeth and overall appearance to look naturally improved.
How Veneers Work: Our Dental Veneer Treatment Process
Before performing any treatment, Dr. Grays welcomes patients for a thorough oral health evaluation and care consultation. Good candidates for veneers are those with minor or moderate cosmetic issues. Problems such as periodontal disease and extensive tooth decay may need to be addressed before any veneers are applied to ensure best results.
The first step of getting veneers at our Sherman dental office is the completion of a wax-up model of your treatment case, where Dr. Gray can show patients what their new smiles will look like. This real-life model allows patients to better visualize results that are possible with veneer therapy. Depending on your treatment method, teeth are then prepared and impressions of your smile are taken and sent to our dental lab for custom creation of your veneers. At your next and final appointment, Dr. Gray will bond veneers in-place and make sure that they are colored and shaped to compliment your smile.
