Hi! Welcome to the Stephen Ratcliff, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry dental blog where we take the time to answer some of the questions dental patients in the Fort Worth area are curious about. Today we are focusing on fabulous veneers, which are used extensively in cosmetic dentistry.
Dental veneers (also called laminates) are custom-made to permanently cover the front part of one or more teeth. Wafer-thin, super-strong veneers can correct a variety of problems including:
4. Teeth that are misshapen
5. Teeth that are too short
6. Teeth that are misaligned
7. Gaps between teeth
When you get veneers, your Mansfield, Bentley Village, and Cook’s Meadow dentist will first make a model of your teeth. Then, a dental technician uses the model to create the veneers. In some veneer procedures, a small amount of the enamel from the face of the tooth has to be removed so the veneers can be placed. In such cases, the procedure is irreversible.
If you are in the Cook’s Meadow area and are looking for a family, general, or cosmetic dentist, give Stephen Ratcliff, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry a call. My name is Dr. Stephen Ratcliff and I have been practicing advanced dentistry in Arlington, Texas since 1990. The art and science of cosmetic dentistry is my passion.
Please call 817-200-7323 and a member of our warm and friendly staff can answer any questions you have about veneers, teeth whitening, invisible braces, sedation dentistry, pediatric dentistry, general dental care, or smile makeovers.
