The Cosmetic Benefits of Dental Veneers

Posted in Veneers

Dental veneers have quite possibly the most influential cosmetic benefits of any dental treatment used on a normal basis. Patients that are seeking to instantly change the way their teeth look and feel can have their dental veneers placed during just one treatment visit, enabling them to walk out of the office looking like an entirely new person. Not only do porcelain dental veneers make your teeth look beautiful, they also give you the boost of self-confidence that can help you feel more at ease when you talk or smile around other people.

What do veneers change? Almost everything. Teeth that are crooked, discolored, stained, or have gaps between them appear to be completely made over when porcelain veneers are placed on the front surfaces of your teeth. Each set of veneers is shaped very carefully to create the straight smile that you truly want to have, including making up for discrepancies in the position or shape of your teeth. Each person, along with their dentist, chooses a shade of porcelain that is not only beautiful, but blends naturally with their appearance.

One huge benefit of veneers is that they are minimally invasive or require no tooth preparation at all. No whitening, drilling or shots are needed. All that is necessary is an appointment prior to the fabrication of your veneers, which allows the dentist to create an impression of your mouth that can be sent off to the laboratory. If desired, you can also have a wax-up of the proposed veneers for you to try on in advance. Once the final veneers are ready, they are placed directly over your natural tooth enamel and you have an instant, beautiful smile!
