Dr. Craig Mabrito assisted in the development of veneers, and as such has made smile restoration one of his special interests. There are many factors that can cause the need for dental restoration. Using veneers to correct previous dental work or to restore your smile offers a more permanent solution than many other options. Dental veneers are thin coverings made of tooth-like materials that are placed over the surface of the tooth to cover unattractive teeth, improve tooth color, and repair previous dental work.
Our dentist may recommend dental veneers in Houston, Texas, to repair:
- Worn tooth enamel
- Uneven tooth alignment
- Spacing issues, such as gaps
Process for Successful Results
Having veneers placed on your teeth requires that your teeth are first shaped or prepped. This process usually entails filing them down so that the veneer covering will fit properly. Once your teeth are prepared, an impression is made of your teeth so that your veneers will have a precision fit. Dr. Craig Mabrito will apply a temporary resin to the tooth or teeth that will have veneers attached to simulate the final results. You wear this material for a week or two until your jaw is comfortable with the change. Adjustments can be made during this time in order to achieve the optimal results. Your veneers will then be made according to the shape of the temporary resin. When it is time to place your veneers, our dentist takes great care in making sure there is a proper fit. Once the fit, shape, and size are right, the veneers are bonded to your prepared teeth.
