Have you ever wished that you could have a flawless smile – one that lights up a room as soon as you enter? This is an attainable goal that your Dallas, TX cosmetic dentist can easily achieve with porcelain veneers.

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 surrounding teeth, and the finished result is a flawless, natural-looking smile.

One of the significant benefits of porcelain veneers is that your cosmetic 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!

Has your smile lost the brilliance it once had? Have you tried over-the-counter tooth whitening products and seen disappointing results, if any at all? If you are tired of stained or yellow teeth, our Dallas, TX teeth whitening dentist office is where this can all change.

There are many over the counter tooth whitening systems on the market today, but none are as effective or provide the same level of whitening as the professional products. Tooth whitening is the simplest and least expensive way to enhance your smile and restore a youthful appearance.

Why Your Teeth Are Stained or Discolored

Teeth can naturally be less than white or may be stained and discolored due to:

  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Illness
  • Certain medications (such as antibiotics)

Most common reasons for discoloration are due to:

  • Tobacco use
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Soft drinks
  • Wine

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 for 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.
