Get a Million Dollar Smile with Dental Veneers

Dental VeneersOne of the best kept secrets of celebrities are dental veneers. Dental veneers are fine porcelain shells which are bonded to your teeth. They are used to brighten your smile, correct gaps between the teeth, hide chipped or cracked teeth, and misshapen teeth quickly and easily. When cared for dental veneers will last for many years.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Veneers?

If you have discolored teeth or a discolored tooth, cracked or broken teeth, misshapen teeth, or gaps between your teeth you may be a good candidate for dental veneers. Dental veneers address and correct these problems and give you a completely natural looking smile. Almost everyone is a good candidate for veneers.

What to Expect

Before your teeth can receive veneers, a small amount of the tooth must be removed to make room for the veneer. If several teeth are going to receive veneers, your doctor may administer a local anesthesia to prevent any discomfort. Once the teeth are trimmed, the doctor will take an impression and send it to the lab to fabricate your new veneers.

The lab will fabricate your new veneers to match or improve the color and shape of your natural teeth. Once the new veneers arrive you will return and the doctor will cement your new veneers onto your teeth. You will leave the office with a new bright and white smile makeover.

Caring for Your New Smile

With proper care your new veneers will last for many years. Brush and floss regularly and use non-abrasive toothpaste. Limit staining foods and drinks such as red wine, tea, and coffee. Keep up with your regular dental checkups. Eventually your veneers will need to be replaced, and remember they are only a cosmetic solution. If you have underlying issues you may want to get those addressed. Your veneers look and feel like your natural teeth, only better.
