In many ways, your smile is your calling card. People remember a wide, toothy grin and associate with someone who is happy and fun to be around, but if you’re less than thrilled with your teeth then you might be leaving a distinctly different first impression. To boost both your smile and your confidence, ask your dentist about veneers.
Here’s everything you need to know:
What are Veneers?
Veneers are porcelain or resin laminates that bond to the front of your own teeth to create a new and improved appearance. Unlike dentures, veneers are considered permanent and can last 15 years or more.
They’re a One-Stop Smile Shop
The average adult has 32 teeth and likely more than one complaint about how they look or feel. Luckily, veneers can help you address a whole host of issues, including any:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Eroded teeth
- Discolored or stained teeth
It Doesn’t Have to Be All or Nothing
While some people visit their local dental office looking for a complete smile overhaul, other patients just want to improve one or two teeth or cover a gap. Your dentist will be happy to offer guidance and go as simple or as complex with your veneers as you wish.
Your Dentist Can Do a Color Match
Veneers are often associated with the bright white smile flashed by A-list celebrities, but you don’t have to go that light if you prefer a more natural look. Your dentist can match your custom veneers to the rest of your teeth for a seamless finish.
Great Dental Hygiene is Still a Must
Although your dentist will remove some of the enamel on your own teeth in order to affix your veneers, those teeth still need lots of attention. More than ever, it’s important that you have a great brushing and flossing routine post-veneers so you can keep your new smile in tip-top shape.
