Do you have cracked chipped, stained, discolored, or unevenly spaced teeth? If so, you may consider dental veneers from University Oaks Dental in Houston, Texas. Dental veneers offer a quick and effective way to fix the imperfections of your teeth and give you the flawless smile of your dream.
What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain attached to the front surface of the tooth. They are handy to correct chipped, stained, spaced, or misaligned teeth. Veneers will transform your smile into a straight, bright, natural-looking smile.
What Problems Can Porcelain Veneers Fix?
Dental veneers are preferred as they can fix many cosmetic tooth issues with just one procedure. Dental veneers can:
- Hide small, chipped, or cracked teeth
- Fill in unattractive gaps and spaces
- Conceal stubborn stains or discoloration
- Make your teeth straight and white
What Material Is Used For Dental Veneers?
Here at University Oaks Dental, we offer patients porcelain no-prep veneers that are so thin that the tooth’s enamel does not have to be reshaped to make room for them. No prep veneers can be directly bonded on the tooth’s surface using dental adhesives. If for any reason, you would like to reverse the process, you can do so without affecting your smile.
What Is the Process of No-Prep Veneers?
During your first appointment, we will check the affected tooth and take the measurement for your new restoration. We will ensure that the veneers match the shade of your existing natural teeth. The impressions will be sent to our lab to make your restoration. We generally use porcelain material that best reflects the qualities of a natural tooth.
During the next visit, we will check the restoration for proper size and fit. Once everything is found to be satisfactory, we will directly bond the veneers using durable adhesives.
How to Care For Dental Veneers?
While you may not get a cavity on a veneer, tooth decay can develop at the edge of a veneer or on the uncovered back portion of a tooth. Efficient oral care is necessary to care for and prolong the life of the veneers. Oral care must include a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste. Flossing is of paramount importance to keep bacteria and food particles from accumulating around the sides of the restoration. Finally, it would help if you undergo regular dental exams to maintain your smile at its best.
