If you have concerns about the shape, color, or appearance of your teeth, Dental Veneers could be a good option for you.
When you’re unhappy with the way your teeth look, your entire life can be impacted. From your self-confidence to your appearance, deeply stained or crooked teeth can make you want to hide from the world.
The good news is that you may not have to invest in numerous cosmetic treatments to improve your teeth, even if you have numerous issues with your smile. Dental veneers allow you to correct many problems with your smile with just one form of treatment.
How Can Dental Veneers Help My Smile?
Dental veneers improve your smile by changing its appearance. The veneer actually covers your natural tooth, so while your natural teeth exist and do their job, the veneer is the part people will see when you smile.
People who have the following concerns about their teeth may qualify for dental veneers:
- Deeply stained teeth that don’t respond to a professional teeth whitening
- Mildly crooked or misaligned teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Teeth that are an unusual shape or size
- Extensively chipped teeth
In order to qualify for dental veneers, you’ll also need to have enough existing tooth enamel to support the bonding process. Dr. Sattout can let you know during your consultation if you’re a good candidate!
What You Can Expect When Getting Dental Veneers
Veneers are permanently bonded to your natural teeth in a minimally-invasive process that requires removal of only a very small amount of tooth enamel to facilitate the bonding process. Once the veneers are bonded to your teeth, you can smile, speak, and chew just as you would with your natural teeth.
You also take care of veneers just as you would your natural smile. Dental veneers are resistant to staining and damage from pressure, but they aren’t immune to it. Therefore, people are encouraged to keep up with their regular dental cleanings and exams to ensure the veneers remain bright and strong to support your dental health and appearance.
Dental veneers can last decades with the right care from your at-home brushing and flossing to regular visits with your dentist!
