We do veneers in our practice for our patients who are looking for a smile makeover. Sometimes it's simply just a few teeth. Maybe they have teeth that are a little crooked, or crowded, or have some spacing between. Veneers are a think laminate that just cover the teeth and can really make a dramatic change in color, and size, and shape of the teeth. We have patients that come all the time, even after they've had orthodontic treatment somewhere where their teeth have been straightened, but the appearance of the teeth still look uneven because the teeth are different shapes and sizes. We can place these really minimally invasive coverings without having to remove a lot of tooth structure, and be able to give them the appearance of the perfect smile.
Your Dental Veneers Options At Houston Uptown Dentists
Our Houston, TX dentist likes to give you options when it comes to your dental and cosmetic care, so we offer both all-porcelain dental veneers and Lumineers. Both are great choices, but because they are ultra-thin, Lumineers require little, if any, preparation of your natural teeth before placement.
Regardless of which option you choose, your smile will be sure to dazzle your friends, family, and coworkers!
The Many Benefits Of Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are thin, tough shells of tooth-colored material that are bonded to your teeth.
Because dental veneers cover up the entire front surface of your teeth, they are a highly versatile option when used by a cosmetic dentist. Rather than fixing problems with your smile one by one, dental veneers can hide many imperfections at once, including:
- Minor cracks
- Stains or discoloration
- Teeth that have become worn
- Small gaps between your teeth
Many of our patients with slightly crooked teeth choose to use dental veneers as a sort of “instant orthodontics” instead of using braces. Another popular option is placing dental veneers on all your teeth that are visible when you smile for a dramatic, consistent look.
While typically reserved for cosmetic treatments, dental veneers also have some benefits when used by a restorative dentist in that they help to strengthen your teeth!
If you’re ready for a major smile upgrade in as little as two dental visits, call our Houston, TX dentist office at 832-463-1021 to schedule your veneers consultation. You can also use our online form to schedule or ask questions.
