Do you avoid smiling in pictures? Do issues with your teeth and their color, shape, or even cracks in their surface make you feel less confident? Have you always wanted to do something about it but felt that the usual options weren’t for you? It might be time to consider veneers.
At Downtown Dental Studios, we know that there are many different options to provide you with the smile you’ve always wanted. Our practitioners — Fadi Beydoun, DMD, MS; Alexander Kimon, DMD; and Karina Zaygermakher, DMD — believe it is highly important to match each patient with the best option for their needs, which is just one of the reasons we offer veneers as a fantastic treatment for smiles that need a little help getting to their full potential.
Veneers are very thin shells that are bonded to your teeth to create an elegant, natural look. In most cases, they are made of porcelain, but sometimes, they are made of composite resin.
Veneers usually require a few trips to our office before the finished product. You might need to come in for a consultation, or in some cases, preparation can begin immediately with the shaping of your teeth to get them ready for the veneers.
Then we’ll take a mold of your teeth so the veneers can be manufactured in a dental lab. Finally, the veneers are put into place with a process that involves a kind of bonding cement.
Veneers are a fantastic and long-lasting option for cosmetic dentistry. According to a 2012 study, porcelain veneers especially have high survival rates over the seven to 15 years they are likely to last without intervention.
Although you might never have considered other cosmetic dental procedures to improve your smile, veneers have several advantages you might not know. First, they don’t require surgery or any invasive treatment that can be anxiety-inducing — not to mention costly.
Second, they are safe for your teeth and gums, making them a great option when your dental health is in otherwise good condition and your teeth require a bit of a makeover. Third, they’re durable and long-lasting, and they also resist stains in the long term.
Finally, veneers can fix a host of dental problems that may currently be holding your smile back. These can include
If you have one or more of these issues, relatively healthy teeth, and a desire to make a change, veneers could be a fantastic option to help you smile wider and brighter. After all, we all deserve to feel good about our smiles. Think about how improving the look and feel of your teeth could make you feel like smiling more every day.
