Dental veneers are wafer-thin covers for your teeth that can be applied by your cosmetic dentist to address a number of common aesthetic issues that may make you hesitant to smile. Find out how veneers can give you the benefit of more confidence every day by checking out the information below.
A Whiter Smile
Veneers are often used to address tooth discoloration, giving you a brighter, whiter smile. They last longer and can create more dramatic effects than even professional whitening, because you and your cosmetic dentist will work together to choose the most radiant, natural-looking shade of white. You are encouraged to view different shades before the veneers are permanently affixed to ensure that you’ll be happy with the results. Because veneers are also durable and stain-resistant, you can count on your whiter smile for years to come.
A Healthy Smile
Dental veneers can also be used to correct issues such as chipped, misshapen, or broken teeth, and are often a desirable alternative to dental crowns. You and your dentist can choose the ideal look and shape for your teeth before placement. Veneers require very little enamel removal before placement, while crowns often require that much of the healthy tooth be shaved away before they can be fitted.
An Even Smile
Not all misaligned teeth require long treatment times in expensive braces to fix. If you’re looking for a more even smile, dental veneers can be used by your cosmetic dentist to correct mildly crooked teeth or address uneven gaps between your teeth. Veneers require only two visits to the dentist to complete and will help you achieve the natural look you’re after without a large commitment of time and money.
