Are you unhappy with your smile? It’s not uncommon to find yourself wishing you could have “normal-looking” teeth. What if you could? At Lovett Dental North Heights, we can help you with a range of cosmetic procedures. One of the flagship tools we offer is dental veneers. In our North Heights, Texas office, you can learn more about if they are a solution for you.

What Are Dental Veneers?a woman holds a sample of dental veneers

Dental veneers are a way to have natural-looking teeth that are beautiful, stain-free, and properly aligned, even if your natural teeth are not like that. They work to mimic the natural teeth in a very hard-to-distinguish way. Veneers are made of porcelain. They are sculpted to fit the size and shape of your teeth. They are then able to be fitted over your teeth, giving you a like-new look without having to remove your existing teeth.

When Are Dental Veneers a Good Thing?

There are many benefits to dental veneers. When you visit us, we’ll provide a full consultation and talk to you about your options. Many people benefit from dental veneers for problems such as:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Teeth that are too short
  • Permanently stained teeth
  • Gaps in between teeth
  • Chipped teeth that cannot be repaired any other way

They look very natural. No one will know you have them in place unless you tell them you do. More so, dental veneers are actually able to withstand stains from food, red wine, coffee, and other substances. They stay white and beautiful for you long term when you care for them properly.

What Happens During Dental Veneers?

When you are interested in this procedure, our team is happy to schedule a consultation for you. Keep in mind you may benefit from other types of dental services as well. Sometimes, we need you to take other steps to ensure your teeth are healthy enough for dental veneers. This may mean having treatments like these if you need them:

Once we can move forward with the procedure because your teeth are healthy and ready for it, you’ll come in to meet with our team. We aim to create a very natural-looking smile, which means we take our time to ensure all of the details are just right.

The process starts with getting a complete impression of your teeth. We’ll then talk to you about the proper shade of white for your teeth, based on what looks both natural and fits your goals.

After a short time, you’ll go home with temporary veneers. These are used to protect your teeth while the custom-finished product is created for you. This can take a few weeks to complete. Our lab is world-class and does an exceptional job ensuring your veneers are beautiful and properly fitted for your teeth.

Natural-Looking Veneers

The veneers are made from high-quality ceramic material. Once ready, we will install these after removing the temporary products. These are bonded to your teeth. Adjustments may be necessary in some situations to ensure they are comfortable and beautiful. Just like that, you’ll have a beautiful new smile. Our office is located on North Shephard in the Heights. We can’t wait to show you how good you’ll look!

Benefits of Family Dentistry

Family dentistry practices often perform dental services related to general, pediatric, emergency, and cosmetic dentistry. While most people who need dental veneers are adults, some are teenagers. For this reason, it is helpful to have a dentist who understands how to treat a growing person. A family dentist is a preferable choice for most people for convenience and affordability. 

At Lovett North Heights, we can schedule dental appointments for your whole family on the same day. This will make everyone’s life easier because you won’t need to keep track of which family member has an appointment on which day. Just bring in the family and our dentists will do the rest. In addition to cosmetic dentistry, we also offer the following types of dentistry services at Lovett North Heights:

  • General dentistry
  • Family dentistry
  • Emergency dentistry

Apart from that, our dentists have vast experience installing dental veneers and other cosmetic dental services for patients of all ages. We will be happy to advise parents on the best ways to promote the dental health of their children and family members. We are excited about your new smile!
