How Dental Veneers Can Change a Smile

Posted in Veneers

Did you ever look in the mirror and wish that you could change the tiniest thing in your smile? Maybe it’s the color of your teeth. Is there a gap you’d like to close? Or you wish there was some way to change the size of your teeth.

Whatever the reason, a change to your smile may be easier than you imagine. Give dental veneers a try!

How to Wear Veneers

First of all, let your dentist know that you’re interested in veneers. He or she will set you up with a consultation. You’ll get to design how many teeth you would like to “fix” with a veneer. This includes selecting size, shape, material, and color.

Your existing teeth will be prepped and a mold or template created based on an impression of them. The new veneers are created in a dental lab. Once they’re made to suit your preference, your dentist will cement them into place over your prepared teeth.

The result? One or more beautifully-shaped teeth as seen from the front!

What to Expect with Veneers

Veneers are basically false-fronts that let you keep and enhance your natural teeth. They’re a conservative alternative to full dental crowns, in terms of aesthetics.

Dental veneers can transform an adult’s smile instantly. Veneers even out the spaces between teeth, create a uniform color, and smooth out areas that are chipped.

Just about anyone with a permanent set of teeth is a candidate for veneers. To find out whether veneers are right for you as well, plan a visit to your local dentist.

A small change could make a big difference!
