Not every problem with your teeth is a major one. Sometimes, all you need to improve your smile is change the color of a tooth, close the gaps between irregularly spaced teeth, improve teeth that are the wrong shape or size, or protect a tooth that has been chipped or fractured. At Vital Dental, our dentist, Dr. Asad Ahsan can restore your smile with dental veneers in McKinney, Texas.
Dental veneers are very thin strips made of porcelain or a type of resin that are cemented to the fronts of your teeth. The dentist will need to remove a small amount of enamel from the tooth and take an impression in order to create your veneer. Once the veneer is ready, it will be attached to the tooth. Once the veneer is in place, you will be able to smile with confidence once again. Your veneer can resist staining, and with the proper care it can last for ten years. However, veneers only protect the fronts of your teeth and can be stained over time. With that in mind, you need to remember to brush your teeth twice a day, floss once a day, and see our dentist for your regular appointments.
If you have a minor problem with one of your teeth, a dental veneer may be the perfect option for giving you a bright, beautiful smile that you will enjoy for many years to come!
