In over 30 years of dental practice in Plano, TX, Dr. Rick Barfield come to one inescapable conclusion: Teeth are remarkable things.
Our adult teeth are designed to remain in our mouths for our entire lives and to allow us to comfortably eat all foods we love.
But life isn’t always kind to teeth. Over time, they can become chipped, stained, discolored, or cracked. Nature doesn’t always line up teeth perfectly which results in small but embarrassing gaps between teeth.
There are very few naturally perfect smiles, and that’s even more true after life takes a toll on our teeth. But you don’t have to live with a smile you don’t like.
If you’ve been embarrassed by your smile, take heart! There’s a quick, affordable, and painless solution. Dental veneers can give almost anyone the smile they’ve always dreamed of having.
About Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are very thin pieces of special material that are cemented to the fronts of damaged, discolored, or gapped teeth. Traditional veneers usually require the underlying teeth be ground down somewhat to keep the veneered teeth from appearing too thick.
Dr. Rick Barfield at 1st in Smiles in Plano, TX uses Lumineers® for our patients who want a quick, painless, and lasting smile that they’ll be proud to show off. Lumineers are made a special material that reflects light in a very natural manner. Once in place, the veneers are undetectable. People will simply marvel at how beautiful and regular your smile appears.
Lumineers are extremely thin but very durable. In contrast to traditional veneers, Lumineers require little to no tooth reduction to give you a gorgeous and completely natural-looking smile. Since the underlying teeth remain intact, Lumineers can be removed if circumstances require.
The Lumineers Process
With just two office visits, you can have your beautiful new Lumineers smile. At your first appointment, Dr. Barfield will make a custom mold of your teeth. The mold will guide the dental laboratory in creating your perfectly-fitting Lumineers. Dr, Barfield will carefully match the color to your existing teeth. Or, if you prefer and you’re having your visible teeth veneered, you can select the shade of white you want.
At your second appointment, Dr. Barfield will check the fit and color to make sure that everything is perfect. Then, he’ll bond the Lumineers to the fronts of your teeth. Again, little to no tooth reduction is required for Lumineers, so you can look forward to a painless process.
Once you see the results, you’ll be thrilled. Those unsightly stains, discolorations, chips, and gaps are instantly gone! You’ll walk out of our Plano, TX office with a smile you’ll love and be proud to display at every occasion. And you can look forward to smiling confidently for many years to come. With care, your Lumineers can easily last for 20 years or more.
