Veneers are one of the most versatile treatments that Dr. Vidya Suri must conservatively and dramatically improve the appearance of patients’ smiles in Little Elm, TX. These thin layers of quality, durable dental porcelain is prepared and fabricated to correct many cosmetic dental concerns, including gaps between teeth.
If you are interested in veneers, you will schedule a visit with Dr. Suri. During this visit, she examines your teeth and gums. Not all gaps are suitable to be corrected with veneers. It is important for her to assess the severity and the cause of uneven spaces between teeth. For instance, if your teeth have shifted out of place over time, progressive periodontal or gum disease may be to blame. In that case, we need to resolve active disease with periodontal therapy. Additionally, if Dr. Suri finds that you have more extensive misalignment or bite problems, alternative procedures may be more appropriate.
Veneers, however, are a non-invasive way to effectively disguise modest gaps, such as a hard-to-miss space between your upper two front teeth. Depending on the type of veneer you select, you can walk into Frisco Elm Dental with a gap-toothed smile and walk out a short time later with perfectly uniform teeth!
Also known as dental bonding, direct veneers can be completed in one visit. They require little to no preparation. So, the natural tooth is generally unaltered. While indirect veneers generally require two visits to prepare and fabricate this tooth covering, patients appreciate that dental porcelain is stain-resistant, lasts a long time with proper care, and mimics the translucency of natural enamel.
