Like many people, you may be unhappy with your smile even though you still have all of your natural teeth. There are a number of minor cosmetic flaws that can leave you feeling less than confident when talking to people, laughing, or engaging in other social activities. Dental veneers provide a durable and aesthetically beautiful solution to a vast range of issues. Whether you have chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth, veneers can give you the bright, white, and even smile you’ve always wanted.
What are Dental Veneers?
With veneers, a high-quality, tooth-colored ceramic is carefully bonded to the exterior of the tooth structures to enhance their overall appearance. If you have a very small and localized issue, just one veneer may be used to cover it. This application will be carefully matched to the shape and color of the surrounding tooth structures for a seamless finish. If you have aesthetic issues that span across multiple teeth, however, our dentist may install a complete set of veneers to dramatically improve your entire smile.
There are currently different options in dental veneers that patients can choose from. The most popular of the options is porcelain. This natural-looking and durable material can radically enhance the smile for a long-lasting finish. We are proud to also offer DURAthin veneers, which are a great alternative.
Problems That Veneers Can Solve
Various prescription drugs and medical conditions can result in significant and noticeable staining of the teeth. This form of discoloration is often unresponsive to professional tooth whitening treatments. In these instances, dental veneers can quickly create a brighter, whiter smile overall. Veneers can also cover chipped or cracked teeth, teeth that are under-sized or misshapen, and gapped or crooked teeth. If you have minor orthodontic issues, you don’t necessarily need braces. Dental veneers could effectively cover moderately crooked or gapped teeth instantly.
Surprising Benefits of Getting Veneers
Surprisingly, dental veneers can do far more than simply build your confidence and improve the look of your smile. For many people, getting veneers has been a very effective way to achieve a more youthful-looking appearance overall. That’s because the smile is one of the first features to start showing signs of aging.
