With the holidays at hand, family gatherings filled with seasonal favorites are once again upon us. That means delicious pies, sweets, and treats galore! While this time of the year may be a favorite for many families, your oral health may be taking a bigger hit than you initially expected. At Cleveland Family Dentistry in Cleveland, TX our goal is to help you achieve a lifelong smile that you are satisfied with, and we recognize that even when you take the necessary precautions to ensure it, blemishes can still get in the way. Because of this, we want you to know that there are treatments available to take care of those pesky sights, such as porcelain veneers.
Dental Veneers are thin shells of dental porcelain that are hand-crafted and bonded to the front of your teeth. They are specifically designed to match your teeth’s natural shade and appearance so that you can enjoy a natural-looking, healthy smile. They are simple to maintain and care for, and can handle a variety of cosmetic blemishes.
One of the most common factors that tarnish a perfect smile is a noticeable stain. Typically, stains can be managed with ordinary teeth-whitening that brightens your grin and removes unsightly outliers. Occasionally, however, a stain can build up and become difficult to remove, requiring more than whitening alone. In this case, a porcelain shell may be created and applied to address the abnormality in a very simple process. For more information on hard-to-remove stains, contact our office today.
Chips or Cracks
In addition to stains, porcelain veneers can address minor chips and cracks that may cause irregularities to your grin. Chips can cause unevenness and disrupt the consistency of your smile, while cracks can be painful and noticeable as well. To combat these problems, veneers can be created to re-establish an even appearance while also taking care to mimic the natural, healthy- looking structure of your teeth. To place them, minimal sculpting of the enamel is required so as not to create a bulky look, and then each shell is secured to the surface of the teeth with a dental cement.
Gaps Between Teeth
Another benefit of perfecting your smile with cosmetic dentistry includes the ability to close any unwanted gaps between oral structures. Gaps can not only cause a grin to appear unflattering, they can house harmful bacteria as food particles are more likely to become lodged. Veneers can easily address this issue by adding surface area to your teeth, resulting in a full, seamless smile.
