Who doesn’t love a beautiful smile? Though brushing and flossing regularly are crucial, sometimes you need a helping hand to achieve a picture-perfect smile. That’s where dental veneers come into play.
Veneers are a quick and efficient solution to various dental issues. They are also durable and long-lasting, making them one of the most sought after dental solutions for many oral aesthetic problems.
If you're considering veneers, you can trust us at LivWell Dentistry in San Francisco and San Ramon, California to help you achieve a flawless smile. Dr. Wenli Loo and Dr. Steve Deng are world-class dentists who specialize in helping people restore that glean.
In this article they explain what veneers are and what dental problems they can fix.
What are veneers?
Designed to cover the front surface of your teeth, dental veneers are thin, custom shells. Typically made from porcelain or composite resin, veneers are permanently bonded to your teeth to improve their appearance.
They're designed to mimic the look of your natural teeth, both in color and texture, so they seamlessly blend with other teeth that may not be covered with veneers.
Veneers are a great fix for many dental problems, including:
Over time, your teeth may become discolored because of various factors like drinking coffee, smoking, or even taking certain medications. In some cases, traditional whitening methods may not be effective enough to get rid of the discoloration.
Veneers are an excellent solution for severe discoloration that can't be eradicated with whitening treatments. With veneers, you can select a shade that's as white as you'd like, giving you a radiant smile that lasts.
Chips and cracks
Accidents happen, and when they do, you may end up with a chipped or cracked tooth that affects both your appearance and your self-confidence.
Veneers can seamlessly cover these imperfections. The thin shell fits over the affected tooth, concealing any chips or cracks, making your teeth look more uniform.
Misaligned or crooked teeth can be both an aesthetic and functional problem. Though braces are typically the go-to solution, they can be a long-term commitment.
For minor misalignments, veneers can be a quicker alternative. They can create the appearance of a more uniform dental structure without the need for braces or aligners.
Gaps between your teeth
Having gaps between your teeth can make you self-conscious when you smile. Veneers can be designed to close these gaps, giving you a more symmetrical smile without needing orthodontic treatment like braces.
Uneven or worn down teeth
Over time your teeth wear down because of various reasons such as age or bad habits like teeth grinding. This wearing can cause your teeth to appear uneven. Veneers can restore your teeth to their original length and give them a more even appearance.
Enhancing your smile
Sometimes, you just want a more polished and aesthetically pleasing smile. Veneers can give you a full smile makeover, enhancing the color, shape, and alignment of your teeth, which boosts your self-confidence.
Dental veneers are a versatile solution for various aesthetic and functional dental issues. From discolored and chipped teeth to gaps and minor misalignments, veneers can transform your smile in just a few dental visits.
