Are your teeth in need of repair? Perhaps they’re stained, yellow, cracked, misshapen, or you’ve got some gaps in your teeth that you’re not proud of. Whatever your reason for wanting a bit of a smile makeover, we’re here to help.
Anything done to improve the look of your smile can be considered cosmetic dentistry. Some common forms are teeth whitening, dental crowns, and veneers. All of these options are meant to help you improve the appearance of your teeth and help you move towards greater confidence and comfort.
All About Veneers
One of our most popular cosmetic dentistry options is dental veneers. Veneers are coverings or shells that can be cemented on top of your natural teeth in order to give you a stronger and more beautiful smile. These shells are usually made out of composite resin materials or porcelain. These materials are meant to imitate your natural teeth in strength and appearance. They blend right into your smile in a very natural and aesthetically pleasing way.
Veneers can cover up teeth that are stained and cracked and can even correct the appearance of misshapen teeth. Some people choose veneers to hide large gaps in between their teeth and to help fix a cracked or broken tooth.
You’ll start by meeting with your dentist to talk about your needs and wants when it comes to your oral health. Once you’ve decided that dental veneers are the way to go you can get your teeth cleaned and prepared for the veneers. Damaged and decayed bits of your teeth will be removed and your teeth will be polished and prepped. Once your teeth are ready, the customized veneers will be placed on your teeth and cemented in place.
You should care for your veneers just like you would care for your natural teeth. Be sure to brush and floss them daily and go in to see your dentist for cleanings and checkups every six months.
