Do you hide your teeth and smile with your mouth closed? Have you noticed the difference in your teeth when you look at older pictures? If you’re unhappy with your teeth, it’s time to consider a smile makeover with veneers. Porcelain veneers give you a brand-new smile that you’ll love to show off.
The experienced and compassionate team at TLN Family Dental, with offices in Houston and Pearland, Texas, offer veneers to improve your smile and increase confidence. A custom smile makeover personalized just for you is complete in about two office visits.
Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain bonded to the surface of your teeth to cover imperfections and improve their appearance. Each veneer is customized to your mouth to blend in while correcting common cosmetic issues, including:
It’s usually very noticeable when front teeth get chipped. Whether you chipped it when you fell, got into an accident, or bit into a piece of hard candy, the TLN Family Dental team can restore the chipped tooth's appearance with veneers.
Smoking, taking certain medications, or consuming dark beverages like soda, tea, and coffee can all contribute to stained and discolored teeth. Severely discolored teeth won’t respond to teeth whitening treatments. Veneers instantly brighten and whiten your smile to hide the stained or discolored teeth.
If a tooth becomes cracked, it’s not only a cosmetic issue that doesn’t look very nice, but the crack makes it easier for bacteria to reach the interior part of your tooth. Treating cracked teeth and covering them with veneers block bacteria and reduce the risk of further damage while restoring the healthy, beautiful appearance of the tooth.
If you see too much of your gums when you smile because your teeth are too small or oddly shaped, placing veneers over them can instantly improve the appearance. The experienced team at TLN Family Dental uses the placement of veneers to reshape and resize the appearance of your teeth.
If one or more of your front teeth angle oddly in your mouth or you have wide spaces between teeth, expertly placed veneers can give the appearance of straighter teeth and reduce the gaps.
During your first veneer appointment, your dentist lightly sands the surface of your teeth to give the dental adhesive a better surface to adhere to the tooth. Then, TLN Family Dental takes impressions of your teeth to create the veneers and applies temporary veneers to protect your teeth while you wait for your permanent veneers.
During your second visit, the temporary veneers come off, and your dentist places the custom veneers on your teeth with strong dental adhesives. Each veneer is shaped to ensure a perfect fit.
