Porcelain Veneers

Most of us would love to have the perfect-looking smile that so many TV stars and celebrities seem to enjoy. But if you’re like a lot of dental patients, you probably think that kind of smile is simply not possible for you to have. Well, think again! The truth is that many of those perfect smiles are due to a very simple and relatively quick dental procedure: porcelain veneers. Dr. Mobley is a strong believer in the importance of a beautiful smile, which is why she’s pleased to offer porcelain veneers to our Austin, TX patients.

An Introduction to Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers consist of an extremely thin layer of porcelain material that is applied directly over the patient’s natural teeth. The process is easy, fast and completely painless: Dr. Mobley simply applies the porcelain using a dental adhesive and hardens it with a specially designed light. Although the procedure is simple, the results are anything but. In fact, you could easily enjoy a perfect-looking smile all thanks to veneers.

Not only is the porcelain material beautiful; it’s also stain resistant and durable. In fact, most patients can enjoy their veneers for 9 or 10 years before they need to be replaced.

Are You a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

If you have very minor dental issues – such as tiny cracks in your teeth, misshaped teeth, chipped teeth, or badly stained teeth – chances are that you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers. It is important to note that if you have any more serious oral health problems – such as gum disease or tooth decay, for example – those issues will need to be resolved before porcelain veneers can be applied. But once you regain your good oral health, veneers can give you the perfect smile you may never have believed possible!

Patient 4

This patient came to me with a chief complaint: “I don’t usually smile, and I want to again with confidence”.

She presented with dark, worn, and chipped teeth. We wanted to close the spaces between her teeth and restore them to ideal size and shape. Initial appointment included x-rays, pictures, and diagnostic records. We created a custom design for her new smile and were able to give her a mock try-in to visualize the change. This was perfect for this case as we realized with the mock try-in the first design the teeth were too long. She wanted a natural looking smile that fit her face. She wore temporary veneers of the proposed design for 3 weeks while the lab fabricated her Porcelain Veneers. We placed 8 Emax Veneers HT BL4 and the results turned out beautiful.

She wore temporary crowns for about 3 weeks of the proposed new design while the lab fabricated the new Emax Porcelain crowns. We delivered Emax Crowns HT BL2.

The final product turned out beautiful. We also made her a new retainer after treatment to assure her teeth do not move. This is always recommended with any cosmetic case.

Patient 5

This patient came to me before her wedding wanting a beautiful new smile before one of the most important (and photographed) days of her life.

She presented with stained bonding on her front teeth.

Porcelain veneers were proposed for the following reasons.

  1. Porcelain is color stable (will stay white longer) as compared to bonding, where you see overtime, it absorbs stain.
  2. She did not like the shape of her front teeth. Porcelain Veneers can give us beautiful and natural looking teeth.

First, she went through one session of Zoom whitening so we could shade match the porcelain to her new white smile. We took pictures and made diagnostic models of her mouth to create the new proposed design. She wore temporary veneers of the proposed design for about three weeks while the final porcelain veneers were being fabricated.  We placed four Emax Veneers HT BL2. We love the results.
