How To Get A Perfect Smile
Do you watch your favorite movie star and stare longingly at their beautiful, perfect smile? If you find yourself admiring the smiles of others because they appear perfect, there is a very good chance they have had cosmetic dental treatment. One cosmetic dental treatment in particular is often referred to as the “movie star treatment” because it leaves you with a beautiful, perfect smile. This treatment is called dental veneers. Interested in knowing more about this treatment and how it can improve your smile? Read on to learn more.
What Are Dental Veneers?
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your front or visible teeth and looking to make a permanent change that can rival your favorite movie star, dental veneers may be the treatment for you. A veneer is a custom-made ceramic or porcelain shell that is permanently affixed to the front of your tooth. Each veneer is custom designed in the shade of your choosing. Patients love this treatment because it gives them a uniform yet natural-looking smile. Dental veneers can be used on one tooth or multiple teeth and are usually placed on the teeth that are visible when smiling. Veneers improve imperfections such as:
- Permanently discolored teeth
- Teeth with chips, cracks, and bumps
- Teeth that are too short or look too small
- Gaps between teeth
Benefits of Dental Veneers
Patients love dental veneers because they do not require any special care other than brushing gently and not using vigorous strokes. When cared for properly, veneers can last for decades. Dental veneers also resist staining. It is important to note that veneers cannot be whitened, so if you are looking for a brighter smile, we recommend using a whitening treatment before the veneers are placed.
