Most of us wish there was something we could do to change the way one, two, or all of our teeth look. Even if we were blessed with naturally flawless teeth, time can begin to take its effect on our smile. Teeth that become worn, shift out of place, or may have never been straight to begin with can affect our confidence level as well as how we interact in social settings.
Thankfully, there’s a simple way to completely change absolutely everything about your smile. No matter if it’s discolored teeth, gaps between the teeth, chipped enamel, or crowded teeth, it can fix it all! We’re talking about dental veneers. Veneers are full-size tooth restorations that are placed directly onto the front of your natural teeth, making it appear as if it were an entirely new tooth.
Veneers can be customized to whatever size, shape, and color the patient prefers. Most of the time, several veneers will be used side-by-side so that all of the front teeth look perfect from one side of the smile to the other.
There are different types of crowns available, but all of them give patients a functional, beautiful smile in just a couple of visits. After the initial consultation, impression, and any tooth preparation, the permanent veneers are ready within about 2 weeks. This final appointment involves permanently bonding each veneer onto the appropriate tooth. You can’t even tell that it’s not the real tooth! It looks, feels, and functions just as if it were your natural tooth.
Dental veneers can be used instead of other types of cosmetic treatment, or as part of a cosmetic care plan that assesses several needs at once. Call your dentist to find out which type of dental veneer is right for you.
