Realize Your Smile Dreams With Gorgeous, Lifelike Dental Veneers
When your teeth are damaged, misshapen, or discolored, you probably want to know your options. Stained teeth are often treated with whitening, but not all stains are good candidates for whitening treatment. Also, you might have another factor that impacts you, such as being pregnant, having visible fillings or crowns, being allergic to the materials, and more.
In these cases, dental veneers are a great way to get white, beautiful teeth that look natural and are durable. Veneers are also a great way to improve your looks when your teeth aren’t shaped quite right or have minor imperfections.
To get a veneer, the dentist will scan or make a mold of the target tooth or teeth. These are sent to a lab for custom veneers. Your teeth will be shaped and roughened a bit so that the veneers adhere well. The veneers are bonded using a special cement that is hardened using an ultraviolet light.
Living with dental veneers
Generally, veneers adhere well, and you can use your teeth normally. If you struggle with grinding or clenching your teeth, you might need a mouthguard at night to avoid damaging your tooth enamel or veneers.
Once your veneers are in place, you can enjoy a bright, confident smile. You won’t have to worry anymore about discolored teeth, awkward tooth shapes, gaps, or other cosmetic issues. Your veneer can also help prevent further discoloration of your tooth.
Veneers don’t require as much invasive work as crowns, and often look better and are more durable. If you have minor cosmetic problems with your teeth, it’s time to regain your confidence and reclaim your smile with dental veneers.
With good oral hygiene and wise food choices, your veneers can last for many years. If you’re ready to explore your options for a beautiful smile, the dentists at Dearborn Family Smiles are here to help. Contact us today!
