A beautiful smile is an asset that will serve you well, and it’s typically the first thing people notice about you. What does your smile say about you? And what would you do to change the appearance of your smile?
Dental veneers are an excellent way to bump up your smile, making you look years younger and much more vibrant. But veneers go way beyond giving you a flawless smile. Dental veneers can correct a multitude of common issues, and may even improve your oral health.
At Dental Illusions, we believe a healthy mouth influences your overall health. Dr. George Saliba and Dr. Basil Moukarim encourage those in and around the Houston area to schedule regular dental check-ups. Your health is your greatest asset, and we want to ensure your asset is protected for life.
Many common dental issues can be corrected by veneers. These thin, shell-like pieces of ceramic material are attached to the front surface of your teeth, providing a clean and healthy transformation, while maintaining a natural appearance. Because your veneers are custom-crafted, they can be made to correct any common dental issue that may be bothering you. These include:
You can expect your dental veneers to be completed in two appointments, in most cases. Dr. Saliba and Dr. Moukarim want to stress that each case is different, and your veneers are customized to your specific needs and goals. With that in mind, here’s an idea of how the process may unfold.
On your initial visit, you’ll discuss your desires and goals for your beautiful new smile. Once you’ve decided veneers are the best fix, your teeth are prepped. This involves removing a very thin layer of your enamel, so your veneers can successfully adhere to your teeth. You’re given temporary veneers while your custom veneers are designed at the lab. Your dentist takes impressions and photos to ensure your veneers will fit exactly as you expect.
At your second visit, your dentist checks to make sure all is going according to plan, then permanently bonds your custom veneers to your teeth. With proper care, you can expect your new veneers to last up to 20 years.
One of the many benefits that come from acquiring dental veneers is the way you start to care for your teeth. Even the most disciplined brusher-flosser-rinser becomes more focused on oral hygiene. Because of your investment in your beautiful new smile, you’re motivated to take extra care and make sure you visit us regularly.
Strong, healthy-looking teeth give you plenty of reason to smile. Dental veneers are the easiest way to protect your pearly whites and create a beautiful new smile in the process.
