In Houston, veneers are an affordable cosmetic solution for people with problem teeth. If you have thought about getting veneers but aren't sure if they'd be right for you, then you're in the right place now! U Sparkle Family & Cosmetic Dentistry invites you to explore dental veneers with the premier cosmetic dental clinic in Houston.
What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are wafer-thin veneers that are cemented over the front of your problem teeth. These custom-made shells or veneers can dramatically improve teeth appearance in wearers. Veneers provide a more attractive shape, size, and color to the teeth they cover. This cosmetic dental procedure is a great quick fix or anyone wanting to improve their mouth's appearance immediately without spending thousands of dollars to do so.
Dental Veneers are most often made of porcelain, as they are at U Sparkle Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. Porcelain provides a much better and much more natural look compared to resin veneers. Of course, we encourage you to schedule your appointment for a consultation and examination if you would like to explore dental veneers and or other cosmetic dental solutions further.
Who Should Wear Veneers?
You may want to wear veneers if any of the following statements apply to you:
- You have teeth that are stained or discolored
- Teeth that are worn down or brittle
- Teeth that are cracked, chipped, or broken
- Teeth that are misaligned
- Teeth that are badly shaped
- Teeth that are gapped
It's important to point out that veneers may not be the best permanent solution if you have any of these problems with your teeth. The fact is; good oral health is synonymous with total body health. If you want; you can accurately think of your mouth as the gateway to your entire body. Therefore, these above-mentioned dental problems should be fixed, not only to promote a better cosmetic look, which is what veneers provide; but you should also improve your oral health and hygiene.
How Veneers are Installed
The procedure for veneers is pretty straight-forward. We will schedule an appointment for you to come in, and we'll remove a small amount of enamel from the surface of your teeth - roughly the same thickness as the veneer we will attach. A local anesthetic will be used, so you'll want to make sure that you have a ride home after the procedure is finished.
After the enamel has been trimmed off of your teeth, we'll make an impression of the tooth or teeth being covered. Your permanent veneer will be manufactured in the dental laboratory, which typically takes around two weeks. We also have temporary veneers that can be applied while you await your custom veneers.
When it's all said and done, your custom veneers will be permanently bonded to your tooth. But before that, we'll check to make sure your veneer is the exact fit and color it's supposed to be. If not's just right, we can remove it and trim it down to the proper size. Your teeth will have to be first cleaned, polished, and etched.
