Did you know that you can transform your smile in as little as two appointments? Now, with veneers, you can remedy a number of issues with your teeth and bite. These white, porcelain shells are placed directly onto your teeth to fortify your enamel and renew your smile. The process is easy. We start by preparing your teeth for the devices — removing only a small amount from the surface of your tooth to ensure it is the right shape and size for the veneers. Next, we take an impression of your teeth to manufacture your new veneers. We’ll fit you with a temporary device while you wait for your veneers to be created. Then, in your final appointment, we will cement your veneers directly onto the surface of your teeth and cure them with a special lamp. After cleaning and polishing your new teeth, you can walk out of the office with a brand new smile! The best part is that you can treat your veneers exactly like your natural teeth. Simply maintain a healthy dental hygiene routine to keep them in great shape for up to ten years.
So what oral health issues can you remedy with these amazing devices? Veneers can resolve any number of issues. Just check out this list of ways that veneers can transform your smile today!
1. Remedy poorly stained teeth.
In certain instances, whitening treatments are not sufficient enough to remove the stains that are ingrained in the surface of your teeth. However, veneers are made from a beautiful, natural-looking porcelain that will leave your teeth looking good as new. Your dentist will even work closely with you to choose the perfect shade of your veneers so they look exactly as you’d like!
2. Cover up a crack or chip in your tooth.
If you’ve cracked or chipped a tooth, veneers may just be the perfect solution for you—particularly if you still have most of the tooth. The tooth will need to be minimally prepared and then the thin, porcelain shell will be cemented directly onto the dental enamel. Once the procedure is complete, you’ll never even know there were any damages to the tooth.
3. Remove gaps in your smile.
If you have a gap in your teeth that you would like remedied, veneers can help! These devices can be shaped to the size and shape you would like, which means they can be made to cover the gaps in your teeth as well.
4. Straighten minor misalignments in your bite.
If your bite is slightly misaligned, you don’t need to have braces to fix the issue. Instead, you can repair your bite in just two appointments with veneers. These devices are placed over your natural teeth and shaped to make your bite meet your exact specifications.
5. Improve the structure of your teeth.
By remedying the cracks, chips, or holes in your teeth, veneers go well beyond restoring the aesthetic appearance of your smile. Additionally, veneers fortify your teeth—restoring their structure and making them strong again.
