There can be many reasons why you might need veneers. Sometimes, the tooth's enamel may have worn away due to consumption of drinks, smoking, medication or possibly due to genetics. Unfortunately, genetics can also play a role in gaps between the teeth that may widen as a patient grows older. Other reasons for teeth abnormalities may include natural wear and tear that comes with age or uneven teeth from night grinding.
Basically, a light layer of the tooth's surface is removed to enable a veneer of porcelain to bond with the tooth so it doesn't become any thicker. The veneer is able to cover most anything such as discoloration (darkened or yellowed teeth), crooked teeth, and gaps in the teeth, and they can also help to lengthen teeth.
Results of Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are considered a more permanent procedure because the tooth underneath is shaven down in order for the veneer to be fitted and bonded around the tooth. If the veneer was to be removed for some reason, the tooth would not look like its original form. Most of our patients have had great results with dental veneers in Houston as the methods we use are very advanced.
