Can dental veneers improve my smile?

Dental veneers can help almost anyone who has an imperfect smile. In fact, have you ever wondered how so many celebrities suddenly have perfect smiles? Most of them never wear braces, undergo surgery, or have months-worth of dental work done. So, what’s the secret? Dental veneers!

These thin shells are a quick and minimally invasive way to drastically improve the appearance of your smile. To place veneers, dentists simply prepare a patient’s natural teeth, take impressions, design the veneers, send the designs to a dental lab, and secure them to your teeth. All of this takes two appointments and requires very little recovery time.

The Cosmetic Issues Dental Veneers Address

If you’re searching for a way to improve the appearance of your smile, you probably have a thing or two in mind that you would like to fix. Dental veneers could be an option if you are hoping to rid your smile of any of these aesthetic problems:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Minor chips and cracks
  • Intrinsic and extrinsic stains
  • Disproportionate teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth

Veneers may be a solution to these problems if the problems aren’t severe. Otherwise, your smile may require a combination of restorative and cosmetic solutions. Talk to your dentist today about the best way to address these dental problems.

Benefits of Dental Veneers

Many patients choose dental veneers for these five reasons:

1.     Veneers are natural-looking.

One of the most common fears people have when improving their smile is that it won’t look natural in the end. Porcelain veneers were introduced in 1983 and have since proven to be one of the most aesthetically pleasing treatments.

You and your dentist will work together to design the veneers to match your face shape, lip position, gum height, and more. It’s imperative to choose a dentist with years of experience in creating custom-made veneers. Ask to see a portfolio of previous work to get an idea of the dentist’s quality of work. 

2.     Veneers help strengthen teeth.

If the enamel on any of your teeth is damaged, the entire tooth is weaker and more susceptible to cracking or chipping. Veneers replace that enamel and strengthen teeth up to 95 percent!

3.     Dental veneers last a long time.

The saying “good things take time” doesn’t apply to porcelain veneers. This cosmetic solution can last 20 years or more when taken proper care of. To ensure your new and improved smile lasts as long as possible, follow these guidelines:

4.     Dental veneer treatment is conservative.

Unlike many other dental treatments, the dental veneer procedure is minimally invasive. A local anesthetic is sometimes required while the dentist preps the teeth, but there is no surgery involved.

5.     Veneers offer quick results.

Having dental veneers placed takes two appointments: one to prepare and one to place. These appointments are typically between one and two weeks apart. During the second appointment, the dentist bonds the veneers to the prepared teeth, places the veneers, polishes them, and you are off to enjoy your brand-new smile!
