Sleep Apnea Treatment & Dental Veneers
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Anyone at any age can suffer from Sleep Apnea. This disorder stops you from breathing during a long night’s rest and keeps oxygen from reaching your brain. This can occur hundreds of times during a single night if left untreated. Those with Sleep Apnea are told they need a big, bulky, unfriendly device referred to as the Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machine, AKA: the CPAP machine. Due to its uncomfortable nature, many decide to only wear the machine sporadically or simply neglect it. However, we make it comfortable and possible for you to still receive treatment.
Here at Smile New Braunfels, one of our many services is applying mouthguards to our Sleep Apnea patients. Our devices hold the lower jaw forward to help eliminate physical blockage. Thus, granting our patients the ability to receive the oxygen they need during sleep, and to help for further peaceful repose, onward. The CPAP machine is now unnecessary, so make an appointment here at Smile New Braunfels at 830-629-8011.

Sometimes teeth can be stained with the consumption of hard water while permanent teeth form. The same can be said for the use of antibiotics. Gapped, misaligned teeth, or possibly teeth with older or larger fillings can lead to teeth staining. However, this problem can be easily solved with veneers. With just two visits a month apart, the problems can be taken care of – just a fraction of the time it would take if you visited the Orthodontist or received braces.
As its namesake implies, a veneer is a thin layer that covers the entire front of the tooth and wraps around the backside ever so slightly. The wrap provides the veneer with strength and durability. The pressed ceramic material bonds to both surfaces and results in a beautiful surface once the treatment is finished. To make an appointment at Smile New Braunfels, call 830-629-8011, and for more information on veneers, watch our video.
