A Smile As Happy As Springtime
- Posted on: Mar 15 2018
As the humdrum mood of winter subsides, the new season has everyone smiling. If you feel uncomfortable with joining in, perhaps now is the time to consider a smile makeover with veneers. The treatment helps with a dull color, chipped teeth, gaps and many other concerns.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are custom shaped to fit your teeth and adhered to the natural tooth. You can choose from several colors of veneers to lighten and brighten your smile. We recommend veneers for:
- Gaps between the teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Teeth that are worn down
- Misaligned teeth
What is the Procedure for Veneers?
Fixing your smile with veneers takes only two appointments. During the first appointment, we make a mold of your teeth that is used to create the veneers in a lab. Once we receive the veneers, we schedule the second appointment to apply them to your teeth.
Are Veneers Better Than Teeth Whitening?
Professional teeth whitening treatments do not work for everyone. Veneers may be the only way to whiten your teeth if you have severely discolored teeth or stains that are brown or grey. Teeth whitening also does not work on crowns and bridges. Another advantage of veneers compared to teeth whitening is that veneers can help with other problems that affect your smile.
Will My Veneers Stain Like My Natural Teeth?
Your natural teeth develop stains from tobacco, coffee, and wine because enamel is porous. Veneers are made of porcelain, which is not porous, so your veneers are less likely to stain.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
If you take care of your veneers and teeth, you can enjoy your new smile for up to ten years. We will check your veneers during each dental exam to make sure that they adhere properly to your teeth and comfortable.
