Smiling has never been easier thanks to veneers.


When you smile in the mirror, are you happy with what you see? Most people have at least one flaw in their teeth that they'd like to get rid of; a lot of us have two or three issues. Whether it's crookedness, discoloration, gaps, or chips, porcelain veneers can completely eliminate your cosmetic dental issues, leaving you with a gorgeous smile. If you're wondering about veneers, Dr. Kenneth Sharp, of Stonebridge Ranch Smiles in McKinney, TX, has answered some common questions here.

What are veneers?

Veneers start out as a block of porcelain that is milled down into a tooth-shaped section that is about the width of a dime. Laboratory technicians then buff, shine and paint each veneer to the exact specifications made by your McKinney dentist. When your veneers are finished, they are affixed to the front of your teeth using a special bonding cement and your new smile is complete!

Who gets veneers?

Even though veneers are the dental restoration of choice for the best and brightest in Hollywood, your dentist assures his patients that they're not just for celebrities. Almost anyone who is looking to improve one or more flaws in their teeth can benefit from veneers. Having an attractive smile boosts confidence and provides an excellent first impression; this can be especially beneficial for those whose careers require a lot of "meeting and greeting."

Can I remove my veneers?

Veneers require your dentist to buff away some of the enamel on the front of the teeth in order to ensure a natural fit and proper adherence. For this reason, porcelain veneers are a permanent commitment. Dr. Sharp can discuss with you all of the cosmetic dentistry options available at Stonebridge Ranch Smiles.
