Porcelain Veneers in Oklahoma City
A New & Improved Cosmetic Solution
Listen to one of Dr. Rykard’s patients talk about her experience getting porcelain veneers in OKC and how the new smile has improved her life!
Porcelain veneers have been around for many decades, and they’ve really changed over time. Many patients may remember the porcelain veneers that looked extremely fake and required extensive removal of the natural tooth enamel in order to bond into place. No longer do porcelain veneers require this kind of preparation, nor do they appear unnatural and stand out as they once did.
Veneers are extremely thin pieces of porcelain materials that are typically glued to natural teeth in order to change their overall appearance. While there are alternatives for addressing cosmetic issues such as these, porcelain veneers are considered the gold standard in fixing numerous issues with a single tooth or several teeth.
The Porcelain Veneer Process
The process of obtaining porcelain veneers is simple. Once a patient has discussed their cosmetic options during their initial examination and consultation with Dr. Rykard, the process begins. Dr. Rykard will slightly roughen up the surface of the tooth’s enamel to give the tooth a stronger bonding area and then take impressions. These impressions are then sent to a laboratory, which fabricates the veneers in approximately two to three weeks. After the veneers have returned to Dr. Rykard, another appointment will be made for their placement This appointment typically lasts about an hour to an hour and a half, depending on the number of teeth that are being done. After the appointment, the patient will then have their new smile!
