Did you know that some bad oral habits could wreak havoc on your teeth? Vigorous brushing can affect your enamel, irritate your gums, and cause sensitivity. Habitual chewing of ice and biting on hard objects can damage your precious teeth. If you have some chips and cracks due to some bad habits, Dr. John M. Hucklebridge of Plano Smile Studio can bring back your gorgeous smile with dental veneers. These custom-made thin shells are attached to the front area of your teeth to improve their appearance.
Dental veneers are an ideal solution for teeth that are chipped, cracked, crooked, discolored, and misshapen. To find out if veneers are right for you, visit your Plano TX dentist and get a smile assessment.
During your consultation, he will inform you about the details involved in the treatment including the requirements, costs, and insurance. Please feel free to ask questions and he’ll gladly answer them.
He’ll perform a complete examination of your mouth and may suggest that you take X-rays and other tests. Upon verification, he’ll prepare your teeth by removing a small portion of your enamel to make room for your veneers. Since it involves a minimal reduction of the tooth surface, you’ll get to save more of your healthy teeth.
After this, impressions of your teeth will be taken. The mold will be forwarded to an off-site dental laboratory for fabrication. On your next visit, the veneers will be fitted and bonded to your teeth. With proper care, veneers can last for several years.
Remember to keep up with your daily oral hygiene and visit the clinic for checkups and teeth cleaning. Avoid bad oral habits that can damage your teeth.
