Getting the beautiful "Hollywood" smile you've always dreamed of might be easier than you think. Porcelain veneers have transformed thousands of smiles covering problems like:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Tooth staining or discoloration
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Oddly shaped teeth
  • Tooth size discrepancies
  • Slight misalignment issues
  • Worn teeth

Redesigning your smile with porcelain veneers in Austin couldn't be more accessible or more affordable. Here's the process for achieving your best smile.

Step #1 Planning Your Dream Smile

The first step in completing veneers is the planning process. At West Creek Dental, Dr. Poonam Gokhale has helped hundreds of patients design their dream smiles with porcelain veneers. Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain that fit over your teeth, changing their shape, color, and size to create the bright symmetrical smile you've always wanted.

Dr. Gokhale works closely with you to design your new smile to ensure that you're getting the best possible outcome.

Step #2 Preparing Your Teeth for Veneers

During your next appointment, Dr. Gokhale prepares your teeth for your new porcelain veneers. This requires her to remove a small amount of tooth enamel to ensure a seamless fit. Because we alter your tooth enamel, we consider veneers to be a permanent treatment. Dr. Gokhale will make temporary veneers and take impressions of your teeth that a trusted dental lab will use to handcraft your final restorations.

Step #3 Placing Your Final Veneers

It takes the dental lab about two weeks to create your final restorations. When they're ready, you'll return to West Creek Dental to have them permanently placed. At this time, Dr. Gokhale makes any needed adjustments to your new teeth to ensure that your bite is functioning properly.

And it's as simple as that. Now you're ready to begin sharing your new confident smile with the world!
