There are many different kinds of dental problems that people may face, and thankfully there are also many different solutions available for effective dental care. If you have teeth that are flawed in some fashion, a member of our office for cosmetic dentistry in Houston will be able to suggest a treatment that will best meet your needs. When you meet with our Downtown Dentists, they will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your dental health to ensure that the appearance as well as the health of your smile is completely restored.

One of the most versatile and effective dental treatment options that we offer is porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thing shell of a special dental ceramic that can mask imperfections and make a smile look picture perfect. The fact of the matter is, you’ve probably seen lots of celebrities with perfect smiles that are made using porcelain veneers, but porcelain veneers are so subtle that you don’t even notice.

Let’s take a quick moment right now to look at the different dental problems that porcelain veneers can address. You may be surprised about what uses porcelain veneers have.

First let’s start with chips and cracks. These little dings on a tooth can make your smile look less appealing. Porcelain veneers, however, can easily conceal these little imperfections from view and make your teeth look incredible. For more serious problems with chips and cracks, there are inlays, onlays, and dental crowns.

Next come stains on the teeth and tooth discoloration. Years of smoking can make you smile look yellow, and all that red wine, coffee, tea, and cola doesn’t do smiles any favors either. While teeth whitening treatments can be effective for most stains, porcelain veneers are what you need for thos major stains on your teeth.

Here’s a shocker: you don’t need braces to get a perfectly straight smile. In cases where your teeth are just a little uneven or misaligned, porcelain veneers may do the trick. No need to worry about braces and you may not even need Invisalign®–porcelain veneers may be all that you need. There’s a reason that some people have called porcelain veneers “instant orthodontics.”

Now as great as porcelain veneers are, they cannot do everything on their own. You may have noticed that we mentioned other treatments above, and there’s a reason for that. Porcelain veneers are a staple of smile makeover treatments. Smile makeovers combine both cosmetic and restorative dentistry in Houstonto achieve a comprehensive revision and enhancement of your smile. By combining multiple treatments, you can have a smile that’s good enough for the red carpet.
