Are dental veneers right for me?

Veneers

Thinking about veneers? They are a big step, and a big investment, but one that can make a world of difference. A sparkling new smile can give you the self-esteem and confidence to take on the world. Read on to learn if veneers are the right choice for you.

A Versatile Solution

Veneers are the answer to a whole range of dental woes, which patients may have previously thought could not be resolved so easily. Tooth discoloration, worn enamel, broken or chipped teeth, and a crooked or misaligned smile can all be solved with veneers.  While orthodontia is often the best place to start, there are times spacing or gaps can not be fully resolved with braces or Invisalign.  In these cases, porcelain veneers are often the best treatment for optimal aesthetic results.

Strong & Durable

Veneers are a coveted choice because they are long-lasting and durable. Porcelain veneers are permanent, and they are designed to last. Although the porcelain shells are thin (often as thin as a contact lens), they are extremely strong, and hold up to comparable forces as your natural teeth would.

Always Brilliant

One of the most appealing aspects of porcelain veneers, for many, is their stain resistance. Tooth enamel is naturally porous. As a result, stains from foods and drinks like red wine, berries, beets, and tomatoes are absorbed, which stains the teeth over time. Porcelain, however, is non porous, leaving veneers bright and white, with no need for whitening products.

Naturally Beautiful

Veneers are custom made to fit each and every tooth perfectly, the color chosen to look like the real thing. They don’t just look natural, but they feel natural too. Veneers don’t cause any pain or discomfort and they won’t cause any trouble eating or speaking. They’ll just feel like real teeth.
