Cosmetic imperfections, chronic dental stains, and other defects on the teeth in the front of your mouth can leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile’s appearance. While these issues might not have any significant bearing on your oral function they can still hinder your natural sense of self-confidence.
If you aren’t happy with the general appearance of your smile, you should consider scheduling a cosmetic dentistry consultation with a dentist like Dr. Thi Hoang. After assessing the nature of the cosmetic imperfections and the general health of your teeth, she can recommend the best method for improving your unattractive smile.
In many of these cases, the most effective option is to clad the faces of each front tooth with a dental veneer. These thin shells made from dental grade porcelain or composite resin will be designed and created in a professional dental lab to provide you with a gleaming white that will also be easy to maintain.
This cosmetic restoration starts with Dr. Thi Hoang creating a detailed impression of each tooth in your smile. If a specific tooth has been compromised by a newly developed cavity or a previous dental filling, she might recommend restoring it with a porcelain dental crown.
When your dental veneers are ready Dr. Thi Hoang will install them onto the corresponding teeth by removing a small amount of existing tooth enamel. Then she will cement the corresponding dental veneer into place with a special dental adhesive.
