Are you constantly hiding your teeth because of obvious stains, chips, cracks, or gaps? If so, then porcelain veneers in Tyler, TX can make them all disappear in as little as 2 appointments. This treatment can be custom designed by Dr. Perez to give you the big, bright, and beautiful smile you’ve always wanted, and then you’ll enjoy it every day for decades to come.
A porcelain veneer is actually a very thin ceramic covering that is placed over the front of a tooth. It’s designed to resemble flawless white enamel, and when applied to multiple teeth, they can completely change the look of the smile for the better. The procedure involves removing a small amount of enamel from the teeth to ensure the veneers lay flat, taking an impression, and then sending it to a lab for the veneers to be made. Then, at a follow-up appointment, Dr. Perez bonds the veneers to the teeth using dental cement.

They also offer a way to make slightly misaligned teeth appear straighter without having to undergo braces, which is why many dentists call them “instant orthodontics.” Veneers are also extremely strong and can be used to strengthen and reinforce the teeth so a patient is able to bite and eat with more security.
