You will then be able to show off your attractive, confident smile to the world, and no longer have to hide any issues you were once worried about.
The Basics of Dental Veneers
When you are facing some type of a cosmetic issue with your front teeth, one of the best options is veneers. They can take a smile that is problematic and turn it to gorgeous in very little time. The process is also quite simple. Your dentist will take a look at your teeth, create a mold of your mouth, and match the color of the surrounding teeth. They will then prepare the surface of the teeth that are going to be getting the veneers. When the laboratory returns the veneers, your dentist will then have you back to get the surface ready to bond the veneers to them, and they will adhere your new veneers. You will instantly be able to see the difference. The most common reasons that people get veneers include:
|•||Gaps in your mouth between teeth that you want covered
|•||Teeth that are misshapen or crooked
|•||Teeth that are cracked, chipped, or broken in places but still have enough surface left for bonding
|•||Stains on your teeth that are unable to be removed or covered in any other way
|•||Having teeth that are either a little too big or a little too small for your mouth|
How Long to Expect Your Dental Veneers to Last
Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way in helping you achieve that attractive and confident smile you have longed for, but it has not found a way to make veneers permanent just yet. Most dental veneers last quite a few years before they need to be replaced, when they are taken care of properly. If you are in a very active profession or sport, you may chip or damage your veneers, requiring them to be replaced sooner than normal. However, for most people, they can expect their veneers to last between five and ten years.
If you are looking for a way to achieve that perfect smile, but do not want to wait years for braces and other dental fixes, then veneers may be the ideal answer. However, depending on the severity of damage to the tooth, (mild) veneers, (moderate) crowns, or (severe) dental implants, may be the optimal solution for your needs. You can get that smile just in time for that big family event, reunion, or just to give you a better sense of self-confidence.
