A Picture Perfect Smile
- Posted on: Nov 15 2017
Smiling is a universal language for starting friendships, sharing the joy and relaying affection. Charles Darwin was the first to note that smiles are a sign of happiness that connect us to other people. Feeling too embarrassed to smile because of your teeth may mean missing many of life’s most precious opportunities. If you want to feel more confident about smiling, crowns, onlays, and veneers may help.
What are Crowns, Onlays, and Veneers?
The most common reasons that people feel uncomfortable smiling are:
- Broken teeth
- Crooked or irregular teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Gaps between the teeth
Crowns are used to cover an entire tooth, and onlays replace a portion of a tooth that may be broken or chipped. Veneers are used for changing the color of your teeth, as well as for repairing gaps, crooked teeth, and other cosmetic irregularities.
What If I Have Missing Teeth?
How Long Will It Take to Improve My Smile?
Some crowns and veneers are performed over the course of two appointments. The first appointment is used to take molds of the teeth that are sent to a lab. We will schedule a second appointment in a few weeks to place the crown or veneers.
How Can I Improve My Smile Sooner?
We are proud to offer CEREC® 3D Restoration technology to our patients. In just one visit, you can have a picture-perfect smile. Dr. Garza uses the CEREC® system to make 3D images of your teeth.
