Enhancing Smiles with Porcelain Veneers in Midland
Cosmetic dentistry is perfect for patients who want to improve the look of a damaged or generally lackluster smile, but the need for multiple treatments becomes a drain on both your budget and your busy schedule. If you'd prefer to transform your smile for the better all at once, porcelain veneers could be the ideal solution. These customized sheaths of dental porcelain are painstakingly designed by Midland cosmetic dentist, Dr. Robert Christensen to fit over your teeth to create a bright, naturally flawless look you’ll love.
These cosmetic wonders can conceal so many different smile imperfections. For example, if you have teeth that are permanently stained or discolored, veneers turn these dull teeth white again. Teeth that are chipped or broken become whole again. Even teeth that are somewhat crooked or have wide gaps between them can be corrected with porcelain veneers. In fact, veneers have a nickname—some people call them instant orthodontics because of the way they can quickly straighten your smile.

Porcelain Veneers Treatment Process
Typically, receiving custom porcelain veneers requires two to three appointments at our office. You and Dr. Christensen will first speak about what you hope to achieve through your cosmetic treatment. The dimensions of your mouth, the proportions of your face and even your complexion will have an influence on the final design of your custom veneers. But also, Dr. Christensen wants to hear what your idea of an attractive smile is.
At the next appointment, he prepares your teeth and takes detailed impressions in order to provide you with temporary veneers and give our dental lab an accurate roadmap for creating your beautiful smile. Dr. Christensen takes care with the creation of his temporaries so that the patient can see the beautiful way the ceramic restorations will look when the process is completed. These restorations arrive a few weeks later, and Dr. Christensen makes necessary adjustments to ensure you’re fully satisfied with the result before he bonds them into place. The photos on this website show the dramatic results Dr. Christensen has achieved for his patients due to his artistry, talent and skill. Once you take a look at his Smile Gallery, you will surely agree that Dr. Christensen can work wonders with almost any smile!
What are the benefits of choosing porcelain veneers in Midland, TX?
- Veneers successfully hide a wide variety of dental flaws, including cracks, chips, stains, discoloration, gaps, and misaligned teeth. We even make corrections to the length and shape of certain teeth if that’s what the patient wants.
- For patients who don’t want to spend years wearing noticeable metal braces, veneers may achieve the same results.
- Veneers are virtually seamless compared to natural teeth, possessing the same translucent qualities. However, they are more resistant against staining than enamel, which allows you to maintain your newly brightened look longer.
With proper maintenance, veneers can easily last 10 to 20 years.
