Treatment options to improve smile symmetry Posted on December 27, 2011 by trinhdm in Veneers As we go through life, we notice there are many folks that naturally bring their hand to their mouth when they smile. Generally, that is because there is something about their smile they do not like and wish to hide. If you are one of those people, a visit to your dentist to discuss dental veneers in Grapevine TX can change that for you. A dental veneer is a shell like covering that is attached to the front of your tooth. It is used to correct many dental imperfections such as stained or discolored teeth, chipped or cracked teeth, gaps or spaces between teeth or misaligned, crooked teeth. Another situation suited for dental veneers is for the person with dental decay, but the tooth is still healthy enough to save. A veneer not only covers, but improves the stability of that tooth. A cosmetic dentist can work wonders developing dental veneers that will closely match the shape and shade of your untreated teeth making your dental veneers almost undetectable. And by placing the veneers over your own teeth, you are merely covering up those imperfections with a minimally invasive procedure, as little of your own dental enamel is removed prior to placing the veneers. The material used to make your dental veneers can be made of porcelain or a resin composite material. Based on the advice of your dentist, the veneers you select will be bonded to your teeth providing not only a new look for you, but some added strength and durability for your teeth. Once veneers are placed, they cannot be whitened so it is best to whiten your teeth to improve your smile before getting dental veneers. So whether you are looking to improve one or several teeth, you can transform your smile with this quick, painless procedure. Call 817-485-2111 to schedule an appointment today!
