Three Dental Issues Improved with Porcelain Veneers

By: Dr. Ernest De Paoli


Are you grappling with stained, chipped, or broken teeth and wondering how to restore your smile to its original glory? You're certainly not alone. Dental issues can take a toll on your confidence and quality of life. But the good news is that modern dentistry offers effective solutions, including porcelain veneers. Dr. Ernest De Paoli at Advanced Smiles specializes in this transformative cosmetic option and is excited to offer it to patients near Frisco, TX, who want a dazzling, healthier-looking smile. Discover how porcelain veneers can tackle these three common dental problems and give you the beautiful smile you've always desired.

Stained teeth

Coffee, wine, and age are just a few of the culprits that can stain your teeth over time. While teeth whitening is an option, it may not always produce the desired results. Porcelain veneers offer a more lasting solution for severely stained teeth. They are stain-resistant and can maintain their color for years, offering a more lasting and aesthetically pleasing outcome.

Chipped teeth

Chipped teeth are not only aesthetically unpleasing but also can lead to oral health issues. At Advanced Smiles, porcelain veneers are often recommended for patients with chipped teeth. These veneers fit snugly over the chipped tooth, restoring its appearance and functionality. Plus, the veneer is color-matched to your existing teeth, ensuring a seamless blend.

Cracked or broken teeth

Broken teeth can be a significant cause for concern, affecting not only your appearance but also your ability to chew and speak. Porcelain veneers are a quick and reliable way to fix broken teeth. Dr. De Paoli will custom-design your veneer to perfectly match the rest of your teeth, offering a durable and aesthetic solution.

The dental veneers process at Advanced Smiles

Understanding the veneer process is crucial before considering this treatment option. Generally, the procedure requires two visits to Advanced Smiles. During your first appointment, Dr. De Paoli will prepare your tooth by removing a small amount of enamel to accommodate the veneer. An impression of your tooth is then taken, and a temporary veneer is placed. At your second appointment, your custom-made veneer will be securely bonded to the tooth, providing a long-term solution for your dental issues.

How long do porcelain veneers last?

One of the first questions that might come to mind is how long porcelain veneers will serve you. With proper care and maintenance, porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years or even longer. The key to their longevity lies in regular dental check-ups, good oral hygiene, and avoiding behaviors that could damage them, such as chewing on hard objects. Dr. De Paoli recommends following proper aftercare instructions to ensure a long lifespan for your veneers.
