Dental Veneers Bring Life Back Into Your Smile
There is no reason to put up with gaps in your teeth or teeth that are stained, badly shaped or crooked. Today, with the use of a veneer placed on top of your teeth, you can correct nature's mistakes or the results of an injury - creating a beautiful smile. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials that are designed to cover the front side of teeth. Say good-bye to a discolored smile and hello to teeth that you can't hide. Smile with confidence knowing your smile has been significantly improved with dental veneers.
Understand the Factors that Affect Teeth Color
Some people are born with teeth that are more yellow than others, while others have teeth that yellow with age. Your natural tooth color can also be affected by an array of other factors including:
*Drinking tea, coffee, or red wine
*Eating highly pigmented foods such as cherries and blueberries
*Accumulation of tartar deposits, which result from plaque that has hardened
*Yellowing or graying of the teeth as part of the aging process
*Trauma to the teeth that may result in the death of the tooth's nerve
What are the Benefits of Veneers?
Most dental veneers are made of porcelain, which are favored by dentists because of their incredibly natural appearance. Porcelain veneers are also translucent, which means that light permeates the surface rather than just bouncing off of it. After penetrating the porcelain shell, the light then reflects off of the hard, opaque cement underneath. The reflection comes from the inside of your tooth, giving it the luminous quality of the surrounding natural teeth.
Another benefit of dental veneers is that they are created to match your natural teeth in terms of shape, size, and color, as they are made from a mold taken of your tooth. Veneers can also improve both the appearance and the strength of your teeth. Additionally, the veneers procedure is relatively quick, requiring only one easy appointment for improved teeth.
Are you a Candidate for Veneers?
To determine if veneers are right for you, your dentist will schedule a preliminary consultation during which your oral health will be evaluated and the available treatment options will be discussed. If you and your dentist decide that veneers are the best option, the next step will involve a thorough review of the details of the procedure.
During your consultation, you will actively participate in the smile design process because by sharing your preferences you will help to ensure that your veneer treatment will meet your expectations. It is important that your dentist understands your objectives when undergoing the veneer procedure.
