Protecting Your Smile With Dental Veneers

Your smile is one of your most important assets and a damaged tooth can negatively affect your self confidence. If a damaged, stained, or misaligned tooth is hampering your smile, dental veneers may be the solution. Veneers are thin layers of either composite or dental porcelain placed over the tooth. The veneer may be made by a technician and bonded to the teeth with resin cement.

When California dentist Charles Pincus originally invented dental veneers, he used dental adhesive to bond them to teeth. This was convenient for Hollywood Stars looking to temporarily alter the appearance of an actor for a role. The private sector was less impressed by early veneers because of course, they fell off very quickly.

Today, veneers are bonded to the teeth for as long as thirty years, changing the patient’s appearance for a prolonged period of time. If a broken or rotten tooth is ruining your beautiful smile, contact local Houston dentist, Dr. Jeffrey Lewis, DDS, and discuss your options. Call us at 713-783-1733.
