How Veneers Can Improve Your Smile?
Having a stunning smile is a valuable asset, both in your personal and professional life. When a few imperfections detract from your smile, you can feel less confident. Veneers are a wonderful solution to improve the beauty of your smile while hiding dental flaws that can make you self-conscious. At Pearl Dentistry, we can help you achieve the stunning smile you deserve with our cosmetic dental veneers.
Transform Your Smile with Veneers
If you are considering cosmetic solutions to improve the appearance of your smile, veneers may be the right solution. However, you should first understand how veneers work to determine whether they are the right option to achieve the results you desire.
Veneers do not fix dental flaws, they cover them. Veneers are a thin shield of tooth-colored material that is adhered to the outside of your teeth. These tiny shields can hide many common imperfections like gaps, crooked teeth or discolorations. They can make teeth look longer or even with the length of your visible teeth. Veneers protect the outside of the tooth and can often help minimize stains to keep your smile looking white for many years.
Veneers can be used to cover just one or two teeth; they can also be used to transform your entire smile. If only a few veneers are used, the specialized material will be color-matched to your teeth so they blend perfectly into your smile.
Imperfections Veneers Can Hide
Not everyone is a candidate for veneers. While veneers can help hide many imperfections and dental flaws, they are not always the appropriate solution. For example, veneers can hide a slightly crooked tooth that is otherwise healthy. However, if you have serious malocclusions, orthodontics may be a better option to improve your smile and oral health.
Some of the common issues that can be covered under veneers include:
- Small gaps between teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Discolorations that do not respond to whitening
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Excessive gum appearance when you smile
It is important to remember that veneers do not fix these issues, only conceal them behind a beautiful exterior. Any underlying dental issues will still need to be addressed to protect your oral health. Veneers simply make your teeth appear the way you desire and give an outer layer of protection for your smile.
Veneer Application Process
Transforming your smile with dental veneers is quicker than you may think. Many people can have their new smile completed in just a few visits to our office. The process starts with removing a small amount of tooth material to create space for the veneer. Veneers are very thin, but for them to look natural and match your existing teeth, there is a thin layer of enamel that is removed.
Once the tooth or teeth are prepared for the new veneer, an impression is created of the teeth receiving veneers. This allows us to create new coverings that will fit perfectly to your teeth. Once these impressions are made, we can have veneers customized to correct your imperfections using digital imagery and advanced dental technology.
Veneers usually take about two weeks to create. Once the veneers are back from the laboratory, we will schedule the final visit to create your new smile. Our cosmetic dentists use a special adhesion that holds the veneers in place. Once the veneers are solidly in place, you will walk out the same day with a bright new smile.
Once veneers are attached, they are a semi-permanent part of your smile. Veneers can last for over ten years when maintained, giving you a beautiful smile that you can be confident to show the world. In fact, veneers can last longer than many other dental treatments and can help protect your fillings and other procedures. They offer durability, protection and beauty for your smile, a combination that is worth the investment for many of our patients.
Benefits of Cosmetic Dental Veneers
There are many benefits and advantages when deciding to invest in dental veneers to improve your smile. Appearance is the most obvious, allowing you to change the look of your smile to give you higher self-confidence. A straight, white smile is attractive and youthful, helping you look your best in social and professional encounters.
Another benefit of veneers is how quickly they can transform your smile. In as little as two weeks, you can have a new smile that looks totally natural. This is perfect for anyone with a big event like a wedding or class reunion that is right around the corner. Unlike orthodontic and other treatments that can take months or years, veneers can give you a new smile on a short timeline.
Finally, veneers protect your smile and resist stains. Dental work under the veneers have an extra layer of protection and veneers are harder to stain than your natural tooth enamel.
Easy Maintenance for Your New Smile
Veneers are easy to maintain – in fact, there is little to do beyond your normal oral hygiene routine. Brush and floss daily as normal to keep your teeth and veneers in excellent shape. You do not need special products to keep your veneers looking great for many years to come. Just remember that veneers, like your natural teeth, can chip or crack. Stay away from biting down on hard items that can damage your veneers or your natural teeth.
