There is no better accessory than a genuine smile that’s full of stunning teeth. Sadly, though, most of us aren’t fortunate enough to have pearly whites that are naturally gorgeous — and that’s where porcelain veneers in Wichita Falls come in. This marvelous treatment has the potential to provide you with a fast and long-lasting smile transformation.
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin pieces of porcelain that your cosmetic dentist in Wichita Falls permanently attaches to the fronts of your teeth.

If you are interested in transforming your smile with porcelain veneers, the first step on your journey is a consultation with your dentist in Wichita Falls. Dr. Strohman will examine your mouth and make sure your teeth are healthy enough to support your new look. This appointment is also your opportunity to ask any questions you may have about veneers and to discuss any other cosmetic treatments you might be interested in.
Once you decide to commit to porcelain veneers, Dr. Strohman will prepare your teeth by removing a sliver of enamel from them. This is to ensure that your veneers line up well with your smile.

Your gorgeous new look could last for 10 – 15 years if you’re diligent about maintaining it. Here are some tips to help you care for your veneers and the teeth underneath them:
