Veneers in Greenville, TX

Thanks to always improving dental technology, many ways are available to improve the appearance of damaged or stained teeth. There is no longer a need to hide your teeth behind your hand or suppress your personality for fear of showing them. One of the least expensive ways to fix your teeth is with dental veneers.

Why Consider Veneers?

With all the alternatives for repairing teeth, why should you decide to use veneers to improve their appearance? One reason is that it is an easier, less invasive process. If you choose to cap your teeth, that can involve reshaping teeth so that the crowns fit properly. Crowns are also much more expensive than veneers and take longer for a laboratory to make.

One of our dentists at Graham Family Dental will take precise measurements of your teeth so that the material they use to make the veneers can be cut to fit over the teeth. The veneers help smaller teeth took bigger, hide the gap between teeth, hide chips or cracks, and cover badly stained teeth.

How are Veneers Produced?

Veneers are thin pieces of material shaped to cover teeth to hide flaws like stains or chips. Most veneers consist of porcelain or a composite resin. Our dentists in Greenville, TX like using porcelain to make veneers because:

  • They are durable
  • Their surfaces look like natural teeth
  • They don’t stain easily
  • Less enamel needs removing from teeth than for crowns

Composite resin is also used for veneers because:

  • Less enamel needs removing than for porcelain veneers
  • They usually don’t require more than one visit to the dentist
  • They are easier and quicker to repair than porcelain
  • They are less expensive than porcelain veneers

How Long can Veneers Last?

Veneers can be a good investment if you want to alter how your teeth look. If you take good care of them and don’t grind your teeth, porcelain veneers can last 10 to 15 years before they need replacing. If you have “no-prep” or composite veneers, then they will last five to seven years.
