Achieve A Hollywood Smile That Dazzles With Dental Veneers
Are your teeth badly stained, chipped or crooked? If you suffer from any of these dental blemishes dental veneers might be an appropriate solution for improving the appearance of your smile. By placing dental veneers on the surface of affected teeth, you can improve an array of dental blemishes. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked, can be significantly improved with dental veneers for a Hollywood smile.
Worn Down and Damaged Teeth
As you age the thin, tough outer surface that coats your teeth, called enamel, can wear and look dulled, stained and discolored. It can also occur as a result of certain medications, but it is most often due to habits such as tooth grinding, poor oral hygiene and the consumption of carbonated and sugary soft drinks such as coke. Smoking can also contribute to the staining of your teeth.
Over time your teeth will naturally wear down just like your shoes or tires on your car. Everyday functions, such as biting, eating and chewing wear away your teeth, causing them to become cracked and chipped. Veneers are used to mask these dental problems, allowing you to smile with confidence.
A common problem for patients is that teeth can naturally be crooked or can become crooked over time with age or by losing neighboring teeth through complications such as gum disease. Crooked teeth can be treated using orthodontic braces or clear aligners such as Invisalign, but treatment with these can be up to two years before any results are seen. Veneers are often referred to as instant orthodontics as they cover up imperfections of slightly crooked teeth. So if you have slightly crooked teeth, veneers may be an instant solution for a straighter smile in two visits without metal-wire bracket braces.
Veneers have proven to be durable and long lasting. In addition, they offer the following advantages:
*Natural tooth appearance.
*Gum tissue tolerates porcelain well.
*Porcelain veneers are stain resistant.
*The color of a porcelain veneer can be selected so that it makes darker teeth appear whiter.
*Offer a conservative approach to changing a tooth's color and shape.
Visiting your dentist in Highland for regular examinations and cleanings is important for maintaining the health of your mouth and longevity of your veneers. Even though porcelain veneers are highly resistant to stains, your dentist may recommend that you avoid stain-causing foods and beverages.
Veneers are not for everyone, requiring proper consultation with your dentist. Upon review and diagnosis, your Highland dentist will assess and develop a proper treatment plan for enhancing the appearance of your smile.
