When you look in the mirror, do you feel that your smile could use some improvements? If your teeth are chipped, discolored, worn, or gapped, your family dentist, Dr. Sapna Amin, can offer you a variety of options for improving your teeth so you feel good about your smile again. For centuries, people have explored ways to beautify their smiles. All of these innovations eventually led to the creation of one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures in use today: porcelain veneers. With porcelain veneers from Flower Mound Family Dentistry, you can have a brand new smile in just a couple of visits to our dental office.
How Veneers Work
Veneers are made out of porcelain that attaches to the front of your teeth to cover up cosmetic imperfections. The porcelain is made specifically to match your natural tooth enamel, so the veneers look like your normal teeth! In order to attach veneers to your teeth, Dr. Sapna Amin may need to remove a very thin layer of tooth enamel so that the veneers appear natural. This creates room for the veneers to fit comfortably in your mouth and gives Dr. Amin a proper surface for bonding the veneer.
Improving Your Smile with Veneers/What Veneers Can Fix
Porcelain veneers are a dental solution to a number of different cosmetic issues. Teeth can become discolored over time due to diet, lifestyle choices, genetics, and certain medications. In some cases, professional whitening won’t help, but veneers can give you a whiter smile. Other cosmetic imperfections may occur such as chips or unevenness, and veneers will attach to the teeth for an improved appearance. Veneers can also be used for minor problems with misaligned teeth and to correct your bite.
How to Maintain Veneers
Maintenance of porcelain veneers is fairly simple, especially if you already have good oral health habits. Brush and floss your teeth as you normally do, paying special attention to the areas around your veneers. You’ll also need to visit Dr. Amin after your veneers are placed to make sure there are no issues. If you tend to grind your teeth at night, Dr. Amin may recommend wearing a night guard so that you don’t damage your veneers and you can protect your investment.
As a skilled cosmetic dentist, Dr. Sapna Amin will take great care to make sure that your porcelain veneers look natural while also meeting your smile requirements. She will work closely with the highly trained lab technician to modify the shape, color, and size of your porcelain veneers to make sure they fit your specifications, giving you the smile you desire.
