Learn more about these porcelain restorations and how they can enhance and reshape your smile! We know the importance of having a smile that exudes your inner confidence. But we also know how even the most minor flaws can leave you feeling embarrassed due to your appearance. Fortunately, our Spring, TX, cosmetic dentist Dr. Maisa Idriss excels in providing this rather simple solution for giving you a beautiful and natural-looking smile.
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are thin, porcelain shells that are affixed to the front of your teeth to become the new front surface of your smile. The porcelain reflects light in the same way natural tooth enamel does, so no one will be able to tell that you even have veneers! Veneers can be used to fix a single missing tooth or completely revamp your entire smile! The choice is up to you.
What are the advantages of getting veneers?
Veneers offer many patients a simple and effective way to reshape and completely “makeover” their smile without having to undergo extensive dental procedures. The only preparation required before getting veneers is for Dr. Idriss to shave a very small amount of enamel off the front of the affected tooth (or teeth). This process offers the veneer enough room to fit over your teeth without looking “bulky”.
Another benefit offered by veneers is that they are created especially for YOUR specific smile, so they provide a realistic appearance and shape that is crucial to looking your best! Veneers can also hide a variety of flaws and imperfections including:
- Stains and discolorations
- Cracks and chips
- Malformed or misshapen teeth
- Unevenness or an asymmetrical smile
- Gaps between teeth
- Minor crowding or twisted teeth
Veneers may also result in a straighter smile without having to resort to orthodontic treatment(s). If there is a cosmetic issue affecting your smile then chances are good veneers can mask it. Plus, having this layer of porcelain over the front of your teeth will provide added protection and resilience to your teeth.
The porcelain used by Dr. Idris to craft your veneers is also stain-resistant, so you won’t have to worry about stains or yellowing from the foods or drinks you consume. If you do get Veneers just make sure you continue to keep your teeth and gums clean with brushing and flossing and you’ll enjoy your new smile for years to come!
