DirectVeneersOfferaQuickandAffordableAlternativetoTraditionalVeneers

Orthodontics, veneers and other cosmetic dental techniques can turn a less than perfect smile into a beautiful one—but not always very quickly. For example, porcelain veneers can take weeks from planning to installation, including the meticulous work of an outside dental lab to produce veneers that look natural as well as beautiful.

But you may be able to take advantage of another approach, one that often takes no more than a couple of dental visits. Called direct veneers, it's actually a process of bonding and sculpting life-like composite materials to teeth that are heavily stained, chipped or that contain tiny crevices called “craze lines.”

Unlike the similarly-named traditional method, direct veneers don't involve the creation of layered porcelain veneers fashioned by a dental lab. But this newer process is similar to the older one in that some of the enamel must be removed from the teeth in question to provide a suitable surface for the composite material to adhere. This alteration will be permanent, requiring a restorative covering on the treated teeth from then on.

Right before this preparation, though, a dentist typically makes an impression of the patient's mouth. This will be the basis for creating the procedural plan for the dental work, particularly a “trial smile” from similar composite material that can be applied to the patient's teeth before actual restoration work begins. This temporary application gives both patient and dentist an opportunity to visualize the final look, and make needed adjustments in color and shaping.

Once the work plan is finalized, the patient then returns for the actual restoration procedure. The dentist begins by applying and bonding the composite material to the prepared teeth. Then, using a drill and manual instruments, the dentist shapes and smooths the material into a tooth-like appearance that blends with other teeth. The procedure can take a few hours, but it can usually be completed during a single visit.

Although direct veneers may not last as long as porcelain veneers, the process is less costly and requires less time to complete. Direct veneers could be an economical solution for achieving a more attractive smile.

Get the smile you want and know you deserve with cosmetic dentistry

You have decided it’s time to improve and enhance your smile and you are ready to turn to our Spring and Louetta, cosmetic dentist Dr. Michael Morris to get beautiful results. If you are looking for a dental treatment that can give you a straighter, whiter and more even smile then you may want to consider getting dental veneers.

Here are just some of the ways veneers can improve your smile,

Cover Stains and Discolorations

While external stains (which are usually yellow in appearance) can often be treated with teeth whitening, internal stains are usually not as responsive to whitening treatment. Of course, you still want to be able to get a whiter smile. Even though your smile may not be an ideal candidate for teeth whitening you can still get a brighter smile with the help of dental veneers.

Close Gaps and Get a Straighter Smile

If you have teeth that are slightly crooked, or if you are dealing with minor crowding or gaps between teeth you may be able to turn to dental veneers to achieve a straighter smile. By bonding veneers to the front of your teeth, veneers can easily fill gaps and make teeth appear better aligned. While veneers won’t be able to fix more serious misalignment issues, our Louetta, TX area dentist will be able to examine your smile and tell you whether veneers can give you straighter teeth.

Hide Chips and Cracks

Teeth are incredibly durable and yet they aren’t fully resistant to damage. Everything from direct impact to crunching down on hard foods can break or chip a tooth. If this happens to you it’s important that you see your dentist right away for care. Depending on the extent of the damage, veneers may be able to cover chips and cracks within multiple teeth.

Improve the Length of Your Teeth

If you have what is known as a “gummy smile” (where your gums are more prominent than your teeth) then dental veneers could help you. Since veneers are specially crafted to give you the results you want, these simple porcelain shells may be able to help you get a more even, balanced smile.

If you are looking for a dentist in Louetta and Spring, TX, who can give you a beautiful smile with the help of veneers then call Dr. Michael Morris today at (281) 379-6939 to schedule a consultation.

How veneers from Dr. Michael Morris in Spring, TX, can make you smile.

The normal aging process, combined with bad habits like smoking and consuming darkly pigmented foods, can cause some not-so-prettyveneers effects on your teeth. If your smile isn’t as beautiful or youthful-looking as it once was, it may be time to consider dental veneers, conveniently provided through Dr. Michael J. Morris's Spring, Texas, office. He proudly serves the residents of Spring and Louetta and he can help you too!

More about Veneers

Dental veneers are thin laminates of beautiful porcelain which are cemented on the front surfaces of your teeth. They can dramatically change the color, shape, and other aesthetic issues you may have with your teeth and your smile. You should consider dental veneers if you want to:

              - Cover up breaks or fracture lines on your teeth

              - Disguise permanent discolorations

              - Conceal excessive wear or erosion

              - Hide chips, cracks, or enamel defects

              - Close up small gaps between your teeth

             - Mask the appearance of tooth overlap

Dental veneers are the go-to treatment to dramatically enhance your smile. They offer many benefits including:

- Natural beauty, as porcelain reflects light, just like natural tooth enamel

- Conservative treatment, as minimal to no tooth surface is removed

- Long-lasting results, as porcelain resists stains and discolorations

- Quick, dramatic smile enhancement, as you can have a beautiful smile in as little as two to three appointments

Veneers have been used for many years to make celebrities and movie stars look their very best. Stars couldn’t show up on the big screen veneerswith yellowing, gapped, or chipped smiles. In more recent years, veneers have become more popular with everyday people who want a smile improvement. Explore how this cosmetic treatment, which is available at the office of Dr. Michael Morris in Spring, TX, can help your smile.

About Veneers
Veneers can make your whole face look different. They brighten up your teeth. They are small, light, dental devices made of porcelain that sit on the top surfaces of your natural teeth to make them look better. A custom, individual veneer is created for each tooth in the treatment plan developed by your Spring, TX dentist. Veneers will continue to look attractive for decades as long as you prioritize oral hygiene.

How They Can Help Your Smile
Veneers obviously help your smile by improving the overall appearance of your teeth. But they offer a few other key benefits. For one, when your teeth look good, you are more apt to do whatever is necessary to keep them looking that way. Veneers also act as a protective barrier over the natural teeth. The porcelain material is very durable and resistant to damage or staining.

How Easy Is it to Get Veneers?
Many patients are able to get their veneers placed in two or three appointments. The first time you visit the dentist for veneers you’ll be evaluated to ensure that your teeth are strong and healthy enough to hold them. At the first or second appointment for veneers, the teeth will be prepared to accept the veneers and Impressions will be made. The last appointment is the “moment of truth” when your veneers are bonded in place and your new smile will be revealed.

Call for a Veneer Treatment
Many people who get veneers are extremely satisfied with the results and are happy to know that their teeth will look good for years. Contact Dr. Mark Morris at his cosmetic dentistry office in Spring, TX to see for yourself. Call (281) 379-6939 today for an appointment.
