Choosing Dental Veneers

Apr 15, 2016

When it comes to cosmetic dentistry in Frisco, today’s patients have a wide variety of treatment options that can address just about any cosmetic or dental health concern. Millennium Smiles wants to be your cosmetic dentist and can help you achieve the smile of your dreams with porcelain veneers.

One of the most common options for damaged, misshapen or deeply stained teeth is porcelain veneers. There are several types of dental veneers, and each has their benefits and appropriate applications depending on the issue being addressed and desired outcome.

Dental veneers are applied directly to the surface of the teeth, requiring varying degrees of tooth preparation for each type of veneer. At Millennium Smiles in Frisco, we place all types of dental veneers, making a recommendation based on the dental health and cosmetic goals of the patient.

Dental Veneer Options:

Composite Resin Veneers: this type of veneer is often considered temporary and is used to correct a minor imperfection in a tooth. Your dentist will directly apply a tooth colored material to the surface of the tooth.

Lumineers: a minimal prep dental veneer, this type of veneer requires minimal tooth degradation and is made from a thin, translucent material that will lend a natural appearance.

Porcelain Veneers: considered the “gold standard” of dental veneers, porcelain veneers can provide a permanent solution to many cosmetic issues. Porcelain veneers require tooth preparation and will be custom made for a comfortable fit that looks and functions naturally.

Deciding which veneer is best for you requires the experience and skill of a trained cosmetic dentist. Dr. Koroushas years of experience with cosmetic dentistry and can make a recommendation after a thorough exam and consultation.
