Smile, and the world smiles with you. It turns out science backs this classic song lyric. If damaged teeth keep you from enjoying the benefits of a glorious grin, the solution may be as simple as dental veneers. Read on to learn more.

Dental veneers are among the most sought-after cosmetic dental procedures for many reasons. This minimally invasive treatment involves bonding wafer-thin shells to the surface of your teeth, camouflaging a wide range of smile flaws. Veneers can quickly transform smiles without downtime or pain, usually in just two to three office visits.

Made of composite resin or porcelain, veneers are custom-shaped and tinted to match your natural teeth, creating a seamless smile. 

At C & C Dental in Sugar Land, TX, Tim Cashion, DDS, and Teresa Cody, DDS, have beautified countless smiles with the magic of dental veneers. Here are some of the most popular reasons C & C Dental patients choose veneers:

Gaps in between teeth

The C & C team creates veneers wider than your natural tooth, filling the gap to create a more aesthetically pleasing smile.

Chipped or broken front teeth

Veneers are a quick and easy fix for this type of tooth injury. They blend perfectly with your natural teeth and reinforce and protect your broken tooth to prevent further damage.

Deep tooth discoloration

We recommend veneers if traditional teeth whitening treatments can’t reverse staining or discoloration.

Bonus: Veneers are more resistant to staining than natural teeth, so they’ll stay whiter longer.

Crooked teeth

Veneers can improve the appearance of minor misalignments. Sometimes called “instant orthodontics,” veneers camouflage orthodontic problems but don't change the positioning of your teeth. More severe alignment issues may require Invisalign®. Your C & C dentist can advise which is right for you.

Gummy smile

A gummy smile usually occurs in people with smaller teeth. For a gummy smile, veneers improve the balance between teeth and gums, creating better symmetry.

Irregularly shaped teeth

Veneers can usually camouflage misshapen or pointy teeth.

Durable and long-lasting

Dental veneers can last up to 15 years with good dental hygiene. Their care is the same as the rest of your teeth. That means brushing twice daily, flossing daily, and visiting C & C for bi-annual dental checkups and professional cleaning appointments. 

To help ensure the most years out of your veneers: 

  • Avoid chewing on hard objects such as ice.
  • Don’t use your teeth to open packages 
  • Wear a night guard if you grind or clench your teeth
