You know that your oral hygiene habits and diet can affect your risk of gum disease, but you might not be aware of the link between your hormones and gingivitis. Here’s what you need to know to protect yourself from gum disease.
To smile or not to smile? If you have inconvenient imperfections in your teeth, like stains, cracks, or misalignment, this might be a question you are asking yourself. After all, a less-than perfect smile can affect your self-confidence and willingness to share your teeth with the world.
Cosmetic veneers can help enhance the aesthetic appearance and function of your teeth and could be the solution you’re looking for to boost your confidence and smile.
Scott Young, DDS and our team of dental professionals in The Woodlands, Texas work with you to determine if our Emax® porcelain veneers are the right choice to address concerns you may have with your smile.
Here are five reasons to consider cosmetic veneers:
Dr. Young and the team at Scott Young, DDS use the Emax® porcelain veneer system because the result of your procedure will be durable veneers with quality fit and function. This ensures that your veneers look pleasing and last for many years.
The LVI lab provides reliable and advanced porcelain veneers that are customized for your needs. Porcelain veneers are comprised of several thin layers of ceramic and layer of adhesive, and they not only fit your current teeth perfectly, but also improve their appearance, making cosmetic veneers a quality choice for tooth imperfections.
Porcelain veneers resemble your natural teeth, so no one will be able to tell the difference. They will blend in with your smile, enhancing it without the appearance of fake materials. You care for them using the same dental hygiene practices you’re accustomed to using.
In some ways, veneers are even better than the smile you have now. Unlike your natural teeth, porcelain resists many types of stains, including those from coffee, tea, and cigarette smoke.
If you are considering veneers, it’s probably because you aren’t happy with the way your natural teeth look. They may be broken, cracked, stained, or decayed, and may have minor gaps or overlaps.
Cosmetic veneers can fix all of these noticeable imperfections in your teeth. They essentially provide a natural cover for the front of your teeth so that they appear much more aesthetically pleasing.
The process of having veneers applied to your teeth is nonsurgical and convenient. You don’t need to worry about the types of extensive preparation and recovery that come with surgeries, and oral sedation is used on most cases to keep the patient very relaxed during the process.
Instead, you just need to schedule a few appointments. At your consultation, Dr. Young discusses your options based on your current dental concerns and desired outcome. Then, you’ll need two appointments. At the first, Dr. Young scrapes away the top layer of your natural tooth enamel and takes a mold for the lab. Your next appointment occurs after the lab sends in your customized veneers. Dr. Young applies each veneer to your individual teeth with an adhesive and light beam that attaches them strongly.
At a follow-up visit, Dr. Young evaluates the veneers to see how they are working with your mouth, both in form and function, to guarantee they’re perfect for you.
Your smile is an important part of who you are. You smile to laugh and share joy with the people you care about. Without teeth that help you feel confident, you may find yourself worrying more about how you look than how you feel. Cosmetic veneers offer a beautiful way to enhance your self-esteem, so you can continue to enjoy your life. You deserve to look your best.
