Whether you have a tooth that is damaged and no longer responding to conventional restoration methods, or you simply want to improve the appearance of your smile, dental veneers can help. Dental veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment in which our dentists expertly place ultra-thin shells over the front surfaces of your teeth to improve the aesthetics of the smile. There are several benefits you can expect from this treatment.
Top Benefits of Getting Dental Veneers
Dental Veneers Are a Fast Way To Fix a Number of Dental Issues
Dental veneers are an incredibly versatile form of camouflage. Your dentist may recommend dental veneers to cover up or more cosmetic issues, such as:
- Stubborn stains or discolorations that do not respond to professional teeth whitening
- Gaps between teeth
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Teeth that are too small
- Misshapen teeth
Cosmetic veneers can strengthen your teeth and will certainly make them look better.
Your tooth enamel is porous, which means it contains tiny holes where stain-causing food and drinks can collect. Dental veneers are not porous, so they are resistant to stains.
Dental Veneers Look Like Your Natural Teeth, Only Better
Made from tooth-colored composite or porcelain, dental veneers look like your natural tooth enamel – but without the discolorations, cracks, or other issues that detract from the natural appeal of your smile. Nobody but your dentist will know that you have dental veneers.
Unsightly teeth can take a toll on your confidence, especially if cosmetic issues prevent you from smiling, talking, and laughing with others. Low self-confidence may have serious consequences on your social and professional well-being, too.
Dental Veneers Can Save You a Fortune
While they require an investment, dental veneers last much longer than teeth whitening and other approaches to cosmetic dentistry, so they save you money in the long run. Dental veneers are also less expensive than dental crowns or conventional braces.
Dental veneers are easy to maintain – simply brush, floss, and visit your dentist as you normally do. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste to remove food particles and plaque. Avoid teeth whitening products, as they often contain harsh abrasives that can scratch your veneers and do not bite directly into hard or crunchy foods, such as apples, carrots, or tough meats. Instead, cut them up and chew them with your back teeth.
