Do You Need Dental Veneers?

Posted in Veneers

Are you happy with the way your smile looks?

Like most other people, you probably would make a few changes, if you could.

Do you want teeth that are:

  • Brighter
  • Straighter
  • Smoother
  • More even?

Dental veneers could be just what you’ve been looking for.

What Dental Veneers Do

Veneers are traditionally made from porcelain, but they also come in a slimmer plastic-like version. They’re made as thin as possible so they can neatly fit over the visible portion of your upper front teeth.

Your dentist will need to remove a little of the enamel from the front of your tooth so that the veneers can easily fit. Once your permanent veneers are in place, it’s not coming off. Gently brush and floss around your veneer as you would for any tooth.

Qualify For Veneers

Are veneers right for your smile?

Your teeth should be fully developed and healthy before you can get veneers. A veneer is not a deep restorative treatment, so if you have decay on your tooth, that should be treated first.

Not all problems can be patched up with veneers. For example, if you have a big gap between your teeth, closing it with large veneers will only weaken them. Not to mention, you’ll probably have a bucktoothed look.

Visit your dentist to find out whether veneers could be effective in improving your smile.

Why Choose Veneers?

Even though dental veneers are cosmetic treatments, they can make a big impact on your quality of life. Smoothing out your smile with these delicate porcelain shells could do wonders for your self-respect and confidence levels! They’re definitely worth a try.

Contact your dentist to find out more about the benefits of this cosmetic treatment.
