Porcelain VeneersDental veneers can reshape your worn or damaged smile into something to be truly proud of. From tweaking a single tooth with a small imperfection to covering your visible smile to give you a totally different look, porcelain veneers’ versatility can benefit patients in many different situations. Find out more about dental veneers and what they could mean for your smile with Dr. Julie Folger and Dr. Ralf Poineal in Sherman, TX.

What are dental veneers? 
Dental veneers are a super-thin, shell-like covering for your tooth. A dental laboratory creates each veneer by hand and customizes it to fit perfectly into your smile. The veneer attaches permanently to the surface of a tooth and masks its appearance to give it a new look.

Can porcelain dental veneers help my smile?

Dental veneers can help your teeth in a variety of situations. Dentists most often use veneers to treat:

  • chipped teeth
  • cracked teeth
  • slight misalignments
  • slight gaps
  • yellowed teeth
  • discolored teeth

If you think you can benefit from this powerful dental treatment, consult with your dentist to ensure that this is the best dental procedure for you. In some cases, other cosmetic procedures like teeth whitening or even orthodontics may be better suited to treating your smile.

Porcelain dental restorations and natural teeth alike require a committed at-home oral care routine. The American Dental Association recommends brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once. In addition to seeing your dentist at least twice a year for routine examinations and professional cleanings, this at-home routine will keep your mouth healthy and free from teeth decay and gum disease so you can enjoy your veneers for years to come.

Most of us have a mental "prototype" of what our ideal smile would look like. Maybe it's your favorite celebrity's, or a co-worker or family cosmetic dentistrymember. Or maybe you are fairly happy with your own smile, but just wish your teeth were whiter, or a different shape. Studies have shown that a majority of people would change something about their smile if given the chance, and many of the people walking around with "perfect" teeth have had a little help from cosmetic dentistry. Sherman, TX, based dentists Dr. Julie Folger and Dr. Ralf Poineal recommend dental veneers to repair some of the most common cosmetic imperfections and issues.

Get a Smile Makeover with Dental Veneers in Sherman, TX

Veneers are one of the most common and versatile cosmetic dental restorations available because they can change the color, size, and shape of a tooth and deliver natural looking, long lasting results. They are also used in restorative dentistry to seal and reinforce a tooth after it has been treated with root canal therapy.

Made of a thin layer of porcelain or composite resin (a combination of plastic and glass and other materials designed to match the sheen and texture of tooth enamel), veneers are bonded onto the surface of the damaged tooth. Some of the uses for dental veneers include:

  • Chips and cracks
  • Mild to moderate spacing issues (larger spaces and gaps may require orthodontic treatment)
  • Permanent dental stains and discolorations
  • Uneven or misshaped teeth

Would you like to improve your smile but aren't sure which cosmetic procedure is right for you? Dr. Julie Folger, your cosmetic dentist incosmetic dentistry Sherman, TX, discusses several common types of procedures.

Composite Bonding

Bonding is an effective, relatively inexpensive way to repair damaged teeth and improve cosmetic issues. Putty-like composite resin, the material used for bonding, can be molded into any shape. Once it's applied to your teeth, it becomes as hard as your natural tooth enamel. Bonding is often used to lengthen teeth, improve the appearance of crooked teeth, fill slight gaps between teeth and cover cracks, chips and stains.

Crowns and Bridges

Crowns are hollow dental restorations that slip over a tooth, covering it completely. They're used to stabilize cracked or broken teeth or teeth that have been weakened by large fillings or root canal therapy. Crowns can also lengthen short teeth and conceal imperfections, such as oddly shaped or crooked teeth, discolorations, cracks and chips. Bridges replace missing teeth. They consist of one or more artificial teeth attached to crowns on either side.

Teeth Whitening

Dull, yellow teeth can make you feel self-conscious in business and social situations. After professional teeth whitening, your teeth will be as much as three to eight shades lighter. Your dentist offers both in-office whitening and take-home whitening kits for your convenience.

Veneers

Thin porcelain veneers hide flaws and imperfections that prevent you from enjoying a perfect smile. Since veneers are attached to the fronts of your teeth only, they don't require a complicated dental procedure. Veneers are used to whiten teeth and hide chips, cracks, gaps and oddly shaped teeth.

Dentures and dental implants

Full or partial dentures replace missing teeth, allowing you to eat and chew normally. Full dentures rest on your gums, while partial dentures usually hook over surrounding teeth. Dental implants are a good choice if you prefer a more permanent tooth loss replacement option. Implants replace your teeth from the root to the crown and can be used to replace one tooth or all of them.

Cosmetic dental procedures can make you feel like smiling again. Call Dr. Julie Folger, your cosmetic dentist in Sherman, TX, at (903) 893-2540 to schedule an appointment to find out which option is right for you.

How dental veneers can help you

Do you have a dull, dark smile? Do you have front teeth that are badly shaped or uneven? Do you find yourself not smiling as much as you used to? There is a simple solution; it’s called dental veneers! Dental veneers are the high-tech modern solution to give you a Veneerscelebrity-perfect smile easily and quickly. Dr. Julie Folger in Sherman, Texas wants you to know dental veneers can revitalize your smile.

Dental veneers are a versatile solution which can fix many minor and major cosmetic issues with your front teeth. Dr. Folger wants you to know dental veneers can correct issues including:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth from overuse
  • Badly worn down teeth from age-related wear
  • Damaged or broken teeth from trauma or injury
  • Badly aligned or overlapped teeth from genetics
  • Poorly spaced or gapped apart teeth from genetics
  • Teeth that are darkly stained from medications like tetracycline
  • Deeply stained or yellowed teeth from smoking or drinking coffee

Dental veneers are ultra-thin laminates of porcelain or plastic which Dr. Folger cements onto your front teeth. They are a conservative treatment because she only removes a minimal amount of tooth structure, just enough to accommodate the thickness of the veneers. Your veneers will be custom made for you in a dental laboratory by highly skilled dental technicians. They are sent back to Dr. Folger and she will cement them at your next appointment. The process takes between 2 and 3 appointments, and then you get to enjoy your perfect smile!

The dental veneers made by Dr. Folger are cosmetically beautiful, and they are also strong. They should last for many years with proper care. Veneers also resist staining, which makes them a great choice for coffee drinkers and smokers who still want a dazzling smile.

Just imagine a perfect, white, beautiful smile that lasts for years! You can have a great smile thanks to dental veneers, the modern way to revitalize your smile. It’s time to call Dr. Julie Folger in Sherman, Texas. She would like to help you discover the magic of dental veneers. So call today and revitalize your smile!
