Your smile makes the first impression in situations throughout your personal and professional life. This spring, make sure your teeth look bright, even, and healthy with veneers. When you get veneers put in place on one or several of your teeth, we cover them with thin porcelain shells, creating a uniform appearance and concealing imperfections.
At Madison Lakes Dental, James Hill, DDS, specializes in veneers as part of a comprehensive practice. Veneers typically take one or two appointments to put in place, as it may be necessary to remove small amounts of your existing tooth enamel to make room for your veneers. Veneers can then last for as long as 10-15 years.
Here are five of the cosmetic reasons Dr. Hill might recommend veneers for you.
1. Irregular tooth shapes
If you have irregularly shaped or positioned teeth, veneers can give you the smooth, even smile you’ve always dreamed about. You might find your life refreshed in other ways, as well, as you step into spring with improved self-confidence about the appearance of your smile.
2. Uneven color
While you may be able to achieve some success removing stains from the surface of your teeth with whitening treatments, discoloration issues might persist, especially if they’re caused by a root canal. With veneers, you can create a completely even color tone across your smile, giving you the brightening results you’re looking for.
3. Wear and tear
Your teeth go through a lot, between chewing, speaking, smiling, and all the other activities of your daily life. Veneers can cover over signs of wear and tear, additionally helping you avoid sensitivity problems and lessen your risks for chipping and breakage.
4. Chips or cracks
Depending on the location of your damaged tooth, you may be able to use a veneer to cover a crack or chip. Veneers work best to repair teeth at the front of your mouth, and may not be recommended for damaged molars. Veneers effectively protect your chipped tooth and fix your smile at the same time.
5. Gaps and spacing
Veneers provide a quicker and easier alternative to time-consuming and inconvenient teeth straightening treatments like braces if you’re concerned about gaps. Custom veneers on your teeth can reduce the appearance of gaps, and contribute to easier oral hygiene, as well. Gaps and tight spacing can create places for food and oral bacteria to accumulate.
