Veneers Houston, TX

Veneers

Veneers can help you achieve a straighter, whiter smile. At Maple Leaf Dental in Houston, Texas, Lisa Giovanetti, DDS, MS, offers custom-made veneers to conceal chipped, broken, or discolored teeth. Veneers also cover gaps and cracks. Let Dr. Giovanetti help you explore your options for cosmetic dentistry. She provides free same-day consultations for patients considering veneers. To request a consultation, call the office or schedule an appointment online today.

What are veneers?
Veneers are thin porcelain covers that attach to the surface of your teeth. These covers look just like your natural teeth. Veneers produce a uniform appearance, concealing cracks, and chips. At Maple Leaf Dental, Dr. Giovanetti uses veneers to improve your smile and boost your self-confidence.

What problems can veneers correct?

Veneers can:

  • Cover up a chipped tooth
  • Restore cracked or broken teeth
  • Seal gaps between teeth
  • Contour misshapen teeth

Veneers can be ideal for fixing teeth after an accident. Veneers can also change the color or shape of your tooth. If you have cosmetic dental concerns, veneers may be the right solution.

How are veneers placed?
Dr. Giovanetti offers complimentary veneer consultations. During your consultation, she examines your teeth and discusses your options to help you decide on the right treatment.

If you opt for veneers, Dr. Giovanetti works with you to choose the right material. Your veneers are custom-made to match the natural shade of your teeth. Dr. Giovanetti first takes a mold of your teeth and sends it to a high-quality dental lab. Your veneers are then shipped directly to the office.

Next, Dr. Giovanetti prepares your tooth by removing part of the enamel. This process helps ensure a secure fit. Finally, Dr. Giovanetti adjusts the veneer and bonds it to your tooth then seals the veneer using a special light. Afterward, you can return to your normal activities right away.

How should I care for my veneers?
Veneers work just like your natural teeth. With veneers, you can brush and floss normally, but avoid chewing on hard objects, like ice or pens. Using your teeth to open packages or chew hard objects may damage your veneers.

Porcelain veneers usually last for 10-15 years. You can extend the lifespan of your veneers by practicing good dental hygiene. Dr. Giovanetti may also recommend using a mouth guard to protect your veneers while playing sports.

If veneers aren’t the right choice for you, Maple Leaf Dental provides a range of other options, as well. Dr. Giovanetti and her team offer:

  • Dental implants
  • Dentures
  • Teeth whitening
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Invisalign®

No matter what your dental concerns, she helps you find a treatment that’s right for you.

If you are ready to brighten your smile, call Maple Leaf Dental or schedule an appointment online today.

Dentures Houston, TX

Dentures

Dentures are a convenient, pain-free option for patients with missing teeth. At Maple Leaf Dental in Houston, Texas, Lisa Giovanetti, DDS, MS, offers custom-made dentures. Skilled technicians craft your dentures in a high-quality dental lab. Your custom dentures fit comfortably and match your natural teeth. Let Dr. Giovanetti help you create your perfect dentures. Call the office or schedule an appointment online today.

What are dentures?
Dentures are artificial teeth that fit securely over your gums and remaining teeth. They’re an ideal option for patients missing several teeth. Maple Leaf Dental offers both full and partial dentures.

Full dentures work best for patients missing all the teeth on their top or bottom jaw. Full dentures fit snugly over the gums, creating a tight seal that prevents your dentures from shifting during the day. Most full dentures are removable, but some attach to dental implants.

Partial dentures are an excellent option for patients who still have some natural teeth. These dentures are held in place by a structure that wraps around your natural teeth. Partial dentures can also attach to implants for added security.

Are dentures right for me?
If you’re missing some teeth, you have many options for dental care. Dr. Giovanetti offers personalized consultations to choose a treatment that’s right for you.

Dentures are ideal for patients who can’t undergo implant surgery. They can also be cost-effective and easy to use. If you prefer permanent replacement teeth, Dr. Giovanetti offers full mouth reconstructions, as well. This comprehensive procedure can replace several damaged or missing teeth.

How are dentures fitted?
Dr. Giovanetti begins by taking a mold of your gums and remaining teeth. She designs your dentures to look like your natural teeth. During this process, Dr. Giovanetti asks for your input. You can help select the right shade and shape for your new dentures.

Your dentures are created in a high-quality dental laboratory. Each set of dentures is custom-made and designed to provide a secure fit. Once your dentures are ready, they’re shipped directly to Maple Leaf Dental.

Dr. Giovanetti checks to make sure your dentures feel comfortable in your mouth. If necessary, she makes last-minute adjustments. Dr. Giovanetti also explains what kind of maintenance your dentures will need.

How should I care for my dentures?
Dentures need special care. Maintenance recommendations can vary, depending on what kind of dentures you receive. During your final consultation, Dr. Giovanetti explains how to care for your customized dentures.

Maple Leaf Dental also provides on-site denture repair. During each exam, Dr. Giovanetti checks the condition of your dentures. If your dentures become damaged, she restores them.

Are you considering dentures? Let Dr. Giovanetti provide expert care. Call Maple Leaf Dental or schedule an appointment online today.

Porcelain Crowns Houston, TX

Porcelain Crowns

Getting porcelain crowns is the best way to have a very natural looking smile. They are used when simply filling in a tooth is not an option. There are times when they decay is so bad that we just have to use a porcelain crown. We also use them with severely damaged teeth or teeth that have already had multiple fillings. Porcelain crowns are attached right to your teeth so that they can function, even when you bite something really hard! There are several types of porcelain crowns so it is important to discuss which type is best for you with your dentist.
