Having a great smile is a privilege that everyone in Austin should enjoy. The confidence that comes from having genuine pride in your pearly whites is irreplaceable. However, many of us struggle with imperfections in our teeth. Broken, chipped, cracked, stained, and crooked teeth can really put a damper on your smile. At Hedgecock Dental, we know how much a healthy, happy smile means to Austin residents, so we’d like to talk about how Dr. Hedgecock and Dr. Hany can help get you the smile you deserve with veneers.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are thin layers of composite, or dental porcelain that are placed on the surface of a tooth to correct cosmetic and functional issues. Invented in 1928 by Charles Pincus, veneers were originally intended to give movie stars perfect teeth for the silver screen. Back then, they were only temporary due to a lack of competent adhesive, but modern dental medicine has advanced to the point that veneers can last for up to 30 years, and are nearly identical to natural teeth in form and function.
What Can Veneers Fix?
Veneers are a good option for a number of different cosmetic and functional dental issues. Although veneers cannot replace lost teeth, they provide an excellent solution for many Austin residents. Here are the most common conditions that benefit from veneers:
Before deciding if veneers are right for you, it is best to visit Hedgecock Dental for a consultation and discussion with Dr. Hedgecock or Dr. Hany. If veneers can accomplish your cosmetic and functional goals, Dr. Hedgecock and Dr. Hany will take a mold of the tooth/teeth to be fitted and send it to an expert technician in a dental laboratory, who will craft the perfect veneers to match your existing teeth. Once Dr. Hedgecock and Dr. Hany have prepared your teeth for fitting, they will place your new veneers, taking your smile to the next level. Although veneers are stain-resistant, Dr. Hedgecock and Dr. Hany may recommend avoiding coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco.
