There’s nothing stopping you from having a beautiful smile in 2017. Call Dr. Bruce Silva to find out how veneers can make it happen. Veneers are a quick way to attaining a healthy, bright smile. They are a perfect, permanent solution for people with teeth that are stained, chipped, or gapped. Veneers have a lot of benefits, but before deciding they’re for you, make sure you have all the facts and are well-acquainted with the procedure.
What are Veneers?
Composite or dental porcelain veneers are the ultimate tools of cosmetic dentistry. Veneers are thin, sculpted layers of porcelain that are applied to the front of your teeth. They improve the position, size, color, and shape of teeth, while maintaining a natural sheen and translucency. They are also a less intrusive option than crowns or braces, are custom made to the contour of your teeth, and are bonded to the tooth’s original enamel during a series of in-office procedures.
What are the Benefits of Veneers?
The ‘before and after’ effect of veneers can be positively surprising, and because veneers are made from high-tech materials and are therefore harder than tooth enamel, they resist wear and staining (from coffee and tea drinking or cigarette smoking) and do not discolor with age like natural teeth. There are also other benefits to veneers. Since veneers are uniquely sculpted for each individual, it’s difficult to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. With veneers, your natural teeth remain largely intact with only a minimal amount being altered to fit the veneer. Finally, for teeth that resist whitening, veneers can make off-color teeth appear bright white.
