We understand just how important a white, winning smile is for your self-esteem. When your smile suffers from cosmetic imperfections, we have multiple treatments to restore and preserve its appearance. One of the most effective options is to replace the faces of each tooth in your smile with a dental veneer.

Dental veneers are custom-shaped, thin, porcelain shells that are meticulously crafted in a state-of-the art dental lab. The special dental-grade porcelain material can be shaded to look just like natural tooth enamel. Since it won’t be as receptive to future stains, you will have an easy time maintaining your white smile going forward.

The process of fitting you for dental veneers starts with Dr. William G. Kaylakie examining each tooth in your smile and taking a few X-rays to make sure each tooth has enough enamel to mount a veneer. If one or more teeth have insufficient enamel or are compromised by past tooth decay issues, he might recommend having that tooth restored by a porcelain dental crown. Then, a small amount of enamel will be removed from each tooth.

Our technicians will make a detailed impression of each tooth that is destined for a dental veneer. This will be sent to a professional dental lab where your dental veneers will be meticulously created. When the dental veneers are ready, we will call you back in for a second appointment to cement the corresponding veneer into place with a special dental adhesive.

If you live in the Austin, Texas, area and you have a smile in need of dental veneers, you should call 512-831-5887 to schedule an appointment.
