When minor dental imperfections are causing your smile to not shine as brightly as it otherwise could, you may be a perfect candidate for dental veneers. Instead of having to hide your smile, or not smile as brightly as you could, dental veneers can be the perfect solution. They are able to cover up minor imperfections, and add to the overall look of your smile. This can boost your confidence, and give you a healthier smile, all with a simple procedure that can be done in just a couple of dental visits!
What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are incredibly thin sheets of either plastic, or more commonly porcelain, that are placed over the top of your teeth to give them a fresh, new look. They can cover up a wide variety of maladies within your smile, such as:
- Staining caused by foods, drinks, or smoking
- Slight chips in your teeth from accidents or normal wear and tear
- Imperfections in your teeth from cavities or decay that has been corrected and filled
- Slight cracks in your teeth
- Receding gums or teeth that are slightly misshapen at the gum line due to gingivitis or gum disease
- Minor gaps between your teeth
- Crooked teeth that are noticeable in your smile
When getting dental veneers, your teeth are slightly roughed up to make it to where the sheets of veneer are able to properly adhere to your natural teeth. To start the process, you need a mold made of your mouth for the veneers to be created from.
After the veneers are done being made at the lab that Surprise Smiles Dental uses, you will come back for another visit. This is when the veneers are shaped to make a perfect fit, and adhered to your teeth. Once you and your dentist are sure they are going to fit perfectly, you will get them stuck to your teeth, and any minor imperfections will be smoothed down. All that is left to do from there is to smile, and let the world see how beautiful your new smile is.
Dental veneers are not going to last forever. With proper dental care and regular dental visits, you can expect your veneers to last around ten years before they are going to need to be replaced. If you are rough with your lifestyle, it may be earlier, or if you are super gentle, it may be longer. Regular checks with the professionals at Surprise Smiles Dental will help give you an idea when you are going to need to have them replaced, and the same process will begin all over again.
