The Benefits Of Getting Veneers

Veneers are a cosmetic implant made to give you a more beautiful smile. Veneers have a number of benefits, but if you aren't sure if they are for you, read the information below and be sure to consult with your cosmetic dentist for help to see which type of cosmetic dentistry procedure is best for you and your smile.

What Are Veneers And How Are They Put On?

Veneers are a very thin piece of porcelain made to look like your own teeth, only better. They are created using a mold of your teeth, then made to cover imperfections in your smile to give you a perfect smile. The veneers are cemented to your natural teeth using a strong bonding agent. In some cases, the enamel on your teeth may be ground down, although, this depends on a number of different factors.

The Benefits

  • Straight Teeth. Sure, you can invest in braces or even Invisalign for a straighter smile, and wear them for as long as it takes to straighten your teeth, but most adults don't want to wait that long for straight teeth, or don't want the hassle of wearing braces, or worrying about needing to put on the clear Invisalign retainers each day.
  • Whiter Smile. Some can use those whitening strips to get their teeth white, or even go to the cosmetic dentist for whitening treatments, but these treatments don't always work for everyone. Some stains just don't come out for some. Veneers can give you that bright white smile you've always wanted.
  • Quick Results. It only takes a few weeks to have your veneers made for your teeth, which means a straighter smile without much wait time.
  • Strong And Resilient. Veneers are very strong and resilient and can be long lasting if taken care of properly. You can eat whatever you want, but it's not advised to use your teeth for opening anything hard, biting your nails or any other objects that can chip the veneers. They are considered stronger than your natural enameled surface.
  • Easy To Care For. They are easy to take care of, simply brush (with a non-abrasive toothpaste) and floss twice daily, and see your dentist for regular cleanings and checkups. Veneers do not stain, so there's no worry about staining those gorgeous new teeth.  

Veneers are great for crooked teeth, teeth that have gaps in them, or even stained teeth. The veneers can cover these imperfections, giving you a more beautiful smile. Your teeth and smile are one of the first things someone notices when first meeting you. See your cosmetic dentist today for a consultation.
