Are Dental Veneers For You?

Posted in Veneers

What would you like to change about your smile? Dental veneers can make it possible! Depending on what it is that you’re wanting to transform about your teeth, porcelain veneers provide patients with straightforward, successful ways to get that Hollywood smile they’ve always wanted.

Veneers are perfect for teeth that are:

  • Misshaped or chipped
  • Have gaps between them
  • Smaller or shorter than normal
  • Discolored and stained
  • Crooked

To be able to consider veneers, your smile needs to be relatively healthy and fee of tooth decay. Veneers are a cosmetic treatment that helps change the appearance of teeth, but aren’t used for the reversal of disease like abscesses, tooth decay, or structural needs. You’ll want to be sure that you’re committed to oral hygiene and preventive care that keeps gum tissues free of gingivitis, so that the contours of your veneers will look healthy and natural. Ask your dentist about having any fillings or crowns completed in order to have successful use of your smile before moving on to cosmetic needs.

Veneers are perfect for treating several teeth at a time. Your dentist may recommend 4, 6, or 8 teeth per arch when you decide to have veneer treatments. This will allow the teeth to blend together naturally, and give you the straight, white smile that you’re really looking for. Since veneers are made of porcelain or resin, their shade will stay permanently white for the life of the veneers! You may opt to whiten your other teeth before you begin treatment, so that the shades can be matched as closely as possible.

A custom veneer consultation is a simple and easy way to find out if you can make the changes that you really want to your smile! In just one or two visits, you can have a brand new smile that you’ll want to show off all day long.
