Features to Look for in Dental Veneers

Posted in Veneers

Dental veneers can give you the perfect Hollywood smile that you’ve always dreamed of having! But not all veneers are created equal. When you’re trying to decide which types of veneers are right for you, here are a few things to keep in mind:

Choosing the Right Size and Shape

Veneers literally change everything about the appearance of your tooth. Most people think about tooth color, but the size and shape of the tooth are just as important. Your dentist will show you types of tooth shapes, length of teeth, and the sizes that will look best on you. You might want to check out a few magazines to have something in mind before your initial consultation. 

A Natural Color that Still Pops!

With so many shades of teeth out there, you want to choose a veneer color that looks natural but still says “Wow!” You’ll want to keep in consideration the color of your other teeth, especially if any of those teeth are not going to have veneers placed over them. Talk to your dentist about if you should whiten your smile prior to your veneers, so that you can choose a lighter material for your procedure. 

The Right Material

Some types of materials look more natural than others. What is it that you want to achieve with your veneer treatment? Some people prefer a more translucent appearance while others want opaque whiteness for a bolder statement. Your dentist can show you the types of veneer materials available and how they will look against your personal characteristics.

If you’ve wondered whether or not dental veneers are right for you, it’s time to set up a consultation with your dentist. He or she can discuss what aspects of your smile that you want to change, and various alternatives such as veneers that can help you get the look you want.
