What Veneers Could Do For You

Dental_VeneersDo you have teeth that are basically healthy – ones with only minor appearance issues? Dental veneers are a cost-effective way to deal with a situation like this, and they are one of the least invasive cosmetic dental procedures around. After receiving your veneers, you may begin enjoying your new beautiful smile almost immediately!

A dental veneer is a very thin porcelain shell that is applied on top of a natural tooth. A dentist removes an extremely small amount of tooth enamel from the tooth, then bonds the veneer to your tooth with a dental composite material.

Since a nice-looking smile is a huge social asset, let’s look at the ways in which dental veneers could enhance the appearance of your mouth.

How Veneers Improve Your Smile

  • They can erase minor chips, cracks and alignment issues. The veneers cover these problems and present a beautiful new tooth surface to the world!
  • They can dazzle your friends when they look at your veneers. Because they closely mimic the way natural teeth reflect light, porcelain veneers can look astoundingly life-like.
  • They can resolve permanent stains. If your teeth are permanently stained by conditions like fluorosis or because you have taken medicines such as tetracycline, dental veneers can return them to a more natural shade. Plus, afterward, those teeth will not need to be whitened again!
  • They can reduce teeth sensitivity. If your teeth have lost enamel, veneers can make them stronger and eliminate sensitivity.

Patients are considered good candidates for dental veneers if the teeth that are to receive the veneers are structurally sound, have sufficient enamel for the veneers to be bonded to, and if there is no history of teeth grinding (bruxism), which can endanger the longevity of a dental veneer.

“Many patients do not need complex procedures to improve the appearance of their smile,” says Dr. Carol Ford, a cosmetic dentist practicing in central Phoenix. “Dental veneers can be a great choice for correcting many minor dental challenges.”
