How Can Dental Veneers Improve Your Smile?

By September 19, 2020 No Comments

When looking in the mirror, does your smile give you confidence? Is your smile healthy, but you still have multiple things about it you’d like to change? With today’s popular cosmetic dental treatments such as porcelain veneers, you can fix a variety of aesthetic concerns an achieve a radiant smile you’ll be excited to share.

Why Choose Porcelain Veneers?

Dental veneers are a popular choice for cosmetic enhancement due to their ability to mask dental flaws effortlessly. Few dental options can match the versatility of veneers.

These thin ceramic shells are placed over the front of the most visible teeth in your smile. Porcelain provides a similar luster and translucence as natural tooth enamel, which allows them to blend in perfectly with your other teeth. When you see a celebrity with that stellar Hollywood smile and wonder what their secret is, the answer is likely veneers.

Since the teeth are hidden behind the veneers, they can be used to conceal a wide variety of issues, including:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Permanent stains
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Small, misshapen, or worn teeth
  • Mildly crooked or misaligned teeth

 What Does Receiving Veneers Include?

Your treatment begins with an open and honest conversation about your needs, goals, and expectations. From there, you will have a thorough examination of your current dental state.

Your cosmetic dentist will walk you through every aspect of your veneer treatment. From selecting the design and shape to the ideal shade, your dentist will consider all the factors that make your appearance unique, such as skin tone and facial structure.

After a professional cleaning, your dentist will prepare the selected teeth with a light buffing to create a clean, smooth surface for veneer application. They will take precise digital impressions to send to the lab for the fabrication of your veneers. You will get temporary prosthetics until your permanent ones are finished. 

In about two weeks, the finished veneers are sent to your dentist’s office. At your second and final appointment, the veneers are permanently affixed, and you can leave the office with the dream smile you’ve always wanted!

Am I A Good Candidate for Veneers?

Most adults make excellent candidates for veneers. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, your dentists must first determine whether your teeth and gums are healthy enough to receive veneer treatment. Depending on the issues you want to address, you may want to consider more than one type of treatment to accomplish your goals.

Combining Treatments for Best Results

Every smile is different, and sometimes a single treatment isn’t enough to get the results you want. When you have a consultation with the dentist, they listen to your concerns and what you hope to achieve. Then, once they evaluate your smile and understand your situation, they develop the treatment plan that will help you meet your goals.

When you have veneers made for your teeth, the cosmetic dentist matches them to your natural enamel to ensure a consistent appearance. Getting your teeth whitened beforehand means the veneers will also be lighter, creating a more vibrant appearance overall. Depending on your situation, you may even seek other cosmetic options, such as porcelain crowns or orthodontics…read more
