Your smile greets the world and you want to make sure you’re sending the right message. If chips, discolorations, gaps, and other small imperfections in your teeth are detracting from an otherwise great smile, veneers may be just the solution you’re looking for.
At Straight Teeth Orthodontics, Dr. Scott Evans and our team offer the most effective tools to whiten, brighten, and improve the smiles of our Dallas area patients.
When it comes to fixing your smile, veneers accomplish more than most other cosmetic procedures because of their versatility, allowing us to cover up more flaws than you might have thought possible.
How veneers work
With veneers, we can conceal imperfections by attaching thin shells of porcelain or resin composite to the visible area of your tooth. We can apply a veneer to a single tooth to fix one issue or to several teeth to improve your entire smile.
Veneers offer a comfortable fit and natural look because they’re custom-made to match the contour of your teeth. To attach a veneer, we remove a tiny amount of tooth enamel and then bond your porcelain shell in place. This ensures that you don’t have any added bulk on your tooth once it’s in place.
Veneers also come in a number of different shades so we can either match a single tooth to the others in your mouth or brighten up the entire row of teeth.
Whiten and brighten
One of the easiest ways to enhance your smile is by brightening up yellowing or stained teeth. With veneers, we provide the perfect window dressing for your teeth, giving you a front row of perfectly white teeth that exude vitality and confidence.
Veneers go beyond whitening by covering up myriad imperfections that may detract from your smile. For example, when you get veneers, you can hide unwanted gaps in your teeth in one or two office visits, without the need for braces.
If you have teeth that have a strange or uneven shape, we can easily hide them with veneers to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
A chip, break, or crack can leave your tooth vulnerable to decay and even ruin your entire smile. Veneers not only restore your tooth’s appearance, but the strong porcelain or resin composite material offers protection at the same time.
In fact, the protective coating of enamel on your teeth may be strong, but it’s not indestructible. If your enamel becomes worn down from highly acidic foods or drinks, stomach acid, or overzealous brushing, we can protect your teeth from additional damage with porcelain veneers.
Lastly, if you feel like you have more gum than tooth showing when you smile, veneers can fix the problem by lengthening the shape of your teeth to create a more proportioned look.
