Cosmetic dentistry is making a comeback as more and more patients are trying to retain that youthful, beautiful smile that they once had. One of the most common and least invasive procedures to attain this goal is dental veneers. This simple procedure does not cause any pain, yet can provide you with a more youthful, perfect smile for many years to come. Veneers pack quite a punch when it comes to preserving your smile; here are 3 ways that they can help your mouth today.
Remove Large Gaps
If your teeth have large spaces that make you consciousness about smiling, porcelain veneers are a great solution. Veneers are most comfortably placed on the front few teeth because they provide a slightly larger layer on your enamel than would exist if you did not have them. After we shave your existing enamel down on the few front teeth that have the gap a very small amount, the veneers are placed and the gaps that once existed between your teeth are gone. This is all accomplished without any extensive dental work or complicated orthodontic appliances, allowing you to be back to your normal routine right away.
Stained, Worn, or Cracked Teeth Disappear
Aging is not only hard on your body - it is hard on your teeth too. Whether you are suffering from an illness, have had hormone changes, or are just experiencing wear and tear on your teeth from the food and drink that you consume, the result can be unsightly. They are also a great solution for those people with bad habits that have ruined their teeth, such as smoking, drinking coffee, drinking wine, chewing tobacco, or even biting their nails. Each of these habits has their own ways that they ruin your teeth, making them weaker and less pleasant to look at. Rather than having to deal with misshapen, stained, or cracked teeth, dental veneers can make all of those issues a thing of the past. Because veneers are custom made for your mouth, they will cover up the issues that you are most embarrassed about, leaving you with a bright, white smile with little to no defects!
Straighten Your Smile with Dental VeneersIf you have a crooked smile, yet you do not want to undergo orthodontic treatment, you have other options. Dental veneers are a great way to make your teeth appear straight without undergoing years of braces or aligners that constantly need tightening or adjusting. If your misalignment issues are minor enough, dental veneers can perfect your smile. A few of the ways it can help is to diminish the appearance of a gummy smile, making your teeth look longer; make your teeth look bigger if they are too small; or give your teeth a more pleasing shape.
