It is not easy task to keep teeth in the very best of shape. They are used for so many activities that cause them stress, like chewing food, biting objects like string, clenching from intense situations, as well as talking. Then there are items with which we surround them: food particles, sugary products, and items that can stain, like coffee, sodas, and fruit juices. The teeth work hard everyday and that work sometimes creates visible issues, which is why many of the patients of New Smiles Texas come to us for dental veneers.
WHAT ARE DENTAL VENEERS?
Dental veneers have become a smile saver for many people. These thin shell-like coverings for teeth are made out of porcelain or composite resin. They are used for patients who have teeth that are discolored or misshapen. These little covers are bonded to the front side of teeth and are matched to each other perfectly to make it appear as if they are the patient’s real teeth. These cosmetic covers for teeth enable a patient who had perhaps been ashamed of their smile to smile freely once again.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR DENTAL VENEERS?
When a patient arrives for their dental veneers appointment, our Houston dentists conduct a thorough examination of all the teeth to see if dental veneers are actually the best procedure for the patient. Once that has been confirmed, we ensure that the veneers selected will fit perfectly with the patient’s existing teeth and that each veneer will line up evenly and beautifully with each other. We then advise which type of veneer, porcelain or composite resin, would be the best option for the patient. The patient then chooses the type of veneer they wish to have.
We then apply the porcelain or composite resin veneers to the patient’s existing teeth using a strong bonding substance to ensure the veneer will remain in place. The substance has been proven to stand up to the everyday demands that teeth endure. After the dentist has applied the veneers, we ensure that the patient is satisfied with their new smile.
