Ever wonder how so many famous people seem to have the perfect smile? They're changing them, and you can too, with veneers!
What is a Dental Veneer?
A veneer is a thin porcelain or composite resin material that covers your natural tooth. Think of it like the thin layer on a piece of furniture that gives it the look of natural wood. It can mask discolorations, brighten teeth, and generally improve your smile. Whether having a veneer applied to a single tooth or a series of teeth the process may take up to three appointments. The first would be the consultation to discuss the treatment plan, preparing the tooth and bonding. With the proper care such as regular brushing and flossing, and avoiding foods and beverages that may discolor your smile the veneer should last for years to come. The replacement of veneers differs for each individual and our doctor will make that recommendation when the time is right.
Why would you want Dental Veneers?
Over time, teeth become darker internally and wear down externally, making them appear even darker. Discoloration occurs from smoking, coffee, tea, red wine, and even certain antibiotics. Tooth size or shape is worn down or not visually pleasing. You may want to fill in the gap between your two front teeth.
According to a consumer study conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), a new smile can make you appear more attractive, more successful, and even more intelligent. The AACD survey found that the first things people notice about someone’s smile include: Straightness, whiteness or color of teeth, sincerity of smile, if teeth are missing, and the sparkle of the smile.
