If you have discolored or misshapen teeth, it can hold you back from smiling and enjoying your looks. Dental veneers are a great way to enhance the look of your smile. The best part is that veneers are often affordable and are a quick way to transform your entire look.
What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are custom-made shells that fit over your existing teeth. These go on the front teeth surfaces with the intent of cosmetic enhancement. This cosmetic option is best for concealing cracks, stains, chips, and other imperfections. In fact, veneers are one of the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments on the market today.
Very Low Maintenance
Dental veneers are pretty low maintenance and completely stain-resistant. All you'll need to do to take care of them is perform your regular dental routine. This means flossing and brushing your teeth twice per day. Also, be sure to attend your annual dental checkups. This can help ensure that your veneers stay affixed to your existing teeth.
The biggest benefit that a patient can gain from veneers is self-confidence. Many people with discolored, misshapen, cracked, or damaged teeth find it hard to smile. They are self-conscious about the look of their teeth. When you invest in dental veneers, you'll be proud of the smile that you have. You'll find yourself smiling more and will be sure to thank your dentist for your new smile.
Prevent Tooth Discoloration
Tooth discoloration is common based on the western diet that most of us Americans eat. Drinks like tea, coffee, and even red wine can cause brown to yellowish discoloration. Chewing tobacco and smoking can also contribute to the unwanted discoloration that occurs.
With dental veneers from your dentist, you don't have to worry about discoloration. The veneers will block your existing teeth from any further staining. The veneers will withstand discoloration throughout their lifetime.
Minimally Invasive Method
Your dentist may share with you several options for enhancing your smile. Some of these may include dental bridges and crowns. Unfortunately, these other methods can be quite invasive on your teeth. They may remove existing teeth or sand down the enamel on the exterior of your teeth. This aids in proper adhesion.
With veneers, you only need to shave a minimal amount of enamel away. This helps to preserve the integrity of your existing teeth, unlike these other ways. Even better, most dentists won't put you under anesthesia to install your new veneers.
