Most people are willing to go to great lengths to improve the appearance and health of their teeth. However, in many cases you can greatly improve the appearance of teeth and help safeguard them as well without having to go to great lengths at all. Our best dentist in Missouri City at ISmile Specialists has many methods of adding to the appearance of your smile. One way that doesn’t require a long commitment of time to put into place is a dental veneer.
Dental veneers, also known as porcelain veneers or Lumineers, are thin sheets of tooth-colored porcelain that fit over the front of a tooth. Our best dentist in Missouri City uses veneers to protect a tooth or to improve its appearance, or both. If the tooth has a chip or crack on the front side our doctor will apply a veneer to protect the tooth from bacteria and debris thus improving both form and function. If a tooth is shorter than the other teeth a veneer can lengthen it in a long-term manner. A stained or discolored tooth can be made to match the color of the other teeth through a veneer, or all the front teeth can receive white veneers and give the patient’s smile back it lost luster. Our doctor custom fits veneers so that they match your teeth and blend in with the teeth around them. Our practice’s veneers can last many years and will not discolor.
Another method of improving the appearance of your smile and eliminating malocclusions, an uneven bite is through the use of braces, especially clear braces. Braces are the most reliable way of fixing an uneven bite and crooked teeth, but some people don’t like traditional metal braces. Our best dentist in Missouri City also offers patients clear braces, which places clear or tooth-colored porcelain brackets of the teeth and connects them by using clear plastic arch wires, which also controls the amount of tension and pressure on each tooth that is used to move the teeth. Clear braces are almost invisible and much less intrusive than their metal counterparts. Come see our dentist to improve the look and function of your teeth.
