Have you ever wished that you could have a flawless smile – one that lights up a room as soon as you enter? This is definitely an attainable goal that can easily be achieved with porcelain veneers offered at our Dallas, TX cosmetic dentist office.

What are Porcelain Veneers?
 
Veneers are very thin shells of dental porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. Porcelain is an excellent material for veneers because it looks so much like natural dental enamel. Veneers are custom-made to match the shade of your own teeth, and the finished result is a flawless, natural-looking smile.
 
What can Porcelain Veneers do for Me?
 
One of the significant benefits of porcelain veneers is that your veneers dentist can use them to correct a wide variety of smile flaws:

 

  • Mask cracked, chipped, or broken teeth
  • Disguise the appearance of crooked teeth
  • Cover spaces lefts by gaps between teeth
  • Alter the appearance of severely stained or discolored teeth
  • Lengthen the appearance of teeth
Do Porcelain Veneers Look Natural?
 
Porcelain veneers are not only versatile, but they blend in perfectly with your natural teeth. The translucent quality of porcelain makes them an excellent choice for a cosmetic dental treatment that is flawless and looks just like your natural teeth – only better! In fact, chances are that no one will notice you’ve had any work done!

Dental bonding is an excellent way to repair chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth. It’s fast, less costly than other treatments, and we can usually restore several teeth in just one appointment.

What Problems does Bonding Correct?

Using dental bonding, we can easily alter the shape, size, and even the color of your teeth. One of the things about bonding that makes it so effective is that the material we use can be shaded to closely match the color of your natural teeth. The result is a repair that even you won’t be able to see!

The Dallas, TX dentist cosmetic often chooses bonding to correct the following flaws:

  • Uneven gaps in-between your front teeth
  • Small chips and fractures in enamel
  • Slightly misaligned teeth 

How Does Dental Bonding Work?

Bonding requires special skill and attention to detail, and Dr. Follette starts the process by carefully mixing several shades of composite resin to match your natural tooth color as possible. Next, she carefully and expertly shapes and bonds the material to your tooth. Since the repair blends so well with your smile, we can use it to fill in a small chip or cover entire surface of a discolored tooth.

A Beautiful Smile is Closer than You Think

Have you always believed that a smile makeover was beyond your reach? If so, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to learn how a simple process like bonding can produce the beautiful results you’ve always dreamed about.

 

While oral cancer makes up only a small portion of all annual cancer cases, it is still a serious problem. Oral cancer cases that are diagnosed in the early stages of development have a significantly improved survival rate — up to 80 percent after five years.

For this reason, the Dallas, TX dentist wants you to be aware of risk factors for oral cancer that might affect you.

Risk Factors for Oral Cancer

The following risk factors can’t be changed, but raising your awareness can help you report any potential problems when treatment options and positive outcomes are greatest.

  • Heredity – There’s sufficient evidence to suggest that the probability of oral cancer can run in families even if no other risk factors like smoking or alcohol use are present.
  • Age– More than 90 percent of all oral cancers occur in individuals over 40. However, the incidence among younger people has been on the uptick recently, perhaps related to lifestyle behaviors.
  • Race – African Americans have a higher incidence of oral cancer than Caucasians.

The following are risk factors that can and should be addressed:

  • Smoking tobacco use – Smokers are at five to nine times greater risk of developing oral cancer
  • Alcohol– Moderate to heavy drinkers are at three to nine times greater risk; the higher the alcohol content, the greater the risk
  • Diet– A high intake of fruits/vegetables, which are high in antioxidants, has been found to have a protective effect against a variety of cancers, including oral.
  • Chronic sun exposure– Often connected with lip cancers.

As part of your routine oral hygiene, you should closely monitor any changes in your mouth that don’t diminish in a few days, e.g., ulcers, sores, or white or red patches on the tongue. We care about your overall wellness, so our dentist always performs an oral cancer screening as part of your regular check-ups.
