Having a great smile is a privilege that everyone in Houston should enjoy. The confidence that comes from having genuine pride in your pearly whites is irreplaceable. However, many of us struggle with imperfections in our teeth. Broken, chipped, cracked, stained, and crooked teeth can really put a damper on your smile. At Dassani Dentistry, we know how much a healthy, happy smile means to Houston residents, so we’d like to talk about how Dr. Dassani can help get you the smile you deserve with veneers.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are thin layers of composite, or dental porcelain that are placed over the surface of a tooth to correct cosmetic and functional issues. Invented in 1928 by Charles Pincus, veneers were originally intended to give movie stars perfect teeth for the silver screen. Back then, they were only temporary due to a lack of competent adhesive, but modern dental medicine has advanced to the point that veneers can last for up to 30 years, and are nearly identical to natural teeth in form and function.
What Can Veneers Fix?
Veneers are a good option for a number of different cosmetic and functional dental issues. Although veneers cannot replace lost teeth, they provide an excellent solution for many Houston residents. Here are the most common conditions that benefit from veneers:
Before deciding if veneers are right for you, it is best to visit Dassani Dentistry for a consultation and discussion with Dr. Dassani. If veneers can accomplish your cosmetic and functional goals, Dr. Dassani will take a mold of the tooth/teeth to be fitted and send it to an expert technician in a dental laboratory, who will craft the perfect veneers to match your existing teeth. Once Dr. Dassani has prepared your teeth for fitting, she will place your new veneers, taking your smile to the next level. Although veneers are stain-resistant, Dr. Dassani may recommend avoiding coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco.
