Cosmetic Dentist Pasadena Texas:
Millions of adults have minor orthodontic issues that hinder their otherwise beautiful smiles. Many of these people would like to fix these flaws but do not wish to undergo lengthy orthodontic (braces) treatment. Luckily, a potentially ideal alternative exists in the form of instant orthodontics.
Instant orthodontics simply involves the placement of custom-made porcelain veneers to correct imperfections in the size, shape, and orientation of the front teeth in the mouth. Pasadena, Texas Dentist Michael Nugent can evaluate your mouth and teeth to determine the extent of your orthodontic issues. He will then tell you as to whether you could benefit from treatment with porcelain veneers. If so, you could have the straight, white smile of your dreams, along with an improved bite.
Imagine having a glowing, healthy smile without having to wear traditional metal braces. At our cosmetic dentistry practice in Pasadena, instant orthodontics makes it all possible.
Porcelain veneers are among the most transformative and versatile restorations in all of dentistry. They are what are used for the “Hollywood Smile Makeovers”. They can be used in a assortment of applications. Porcelain veneers are routinely used to conceal teeth that are misshapen, discolored, chipped, cracked, or separated by gaps. Because porcelain, like natural tooth enamel, is translucent (it allows some light to pass through its surface rather than simply reflecting all of it), veneers look amazingly like. Veneers blend seamlessly into our patients smiles, complementing the shape, size, color, and texture of surrounding natural teeth.
In some instances, porcelain veneers offer benefits beyond the cosmetic. By closing gaps between teeth, veneers can help to prevent teeth from shifting or rotating out of their optimal position. Plus, by changing the shape of the teeth, veneers can help the upper and lower teeth align better, improving and strengthening the bite. Minor misalignment issues can also be corrected, as slightly crooked teeth can be made straighter.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
For many Pasadena patients, instant orthodontics is an excellent alternative to braces. Not all orthodontic issues can be addressed with porcelain veneers, however. The most ideal candidates for porcelain veneers include patients who have:
