Do you ever find yourself trying to cover up your smile because you're embarrassed by it? Do you glance in the mirror and wish that your teeth were more attractive in any way? Perhaps they could be whiter, better aligned, or more stunning overall. Have you ever experimented with various cosmetic treatments, only to be dissatisfied with the results of such treatments? If this describes you, you should consider getting dental veneers. The following are five reasons why you should give them some thought:
Yellow Stains that Mar the Appearance of Your Teeth
A smile that is whiter and more radiant can be achieved with the help of dental veneers. Veneers could be the answer for you if you have tooth discolouration or deep stains that do not respond well to whitening treatments. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to your teeth.
Although professional whitening treatments can provide fantastic results, some people's tooth structure is naturally very dark, or they use medications that permanently change the color of their teeth. These individuals cannot achieve the same results (such as antibiotics like tetracycline.) No matter how hard you try, you won't be able to get such black stains out with bleach.
Veneers cover the entire tooth that lies behind them, allowing you to select any shade you like for the veneers themselves. Your natural skin tone and lip color are both factors that Dr. Cohan will take into consideration while helping you choose a shade. The brilliant porcelain makes the teeth appear to be naturally white. There is no need to bleach the fabric! Your porcelain veneers will continue to maintain their brilliant hue over the course of many years to come, which is an extra plus.
Teeth that are broken or misshapen
Do any of your teeth have chips or are they crooked? If this is the case, you might think about getting dental veneers. Because each veneer is made individually by hand in a dental laboratory, we have complete control over the way in which they are fashioned. No detail has been overlooked, from the dimensions of the width and length to the shape of the serrated edges.
Problems such as thin teeth, enamel that has been slightly damaged (in which case you do not require a dental crown), and surface imperfections such as pitted surfaces are all easily rectifiable. After the veneer has been glued to the front of your tooth, your smile will appear to be entire and complete once more. Veneers offer superior protection than composite bonding while also being less invasive than full coverage crowns; in fact, they were developed particularly for situations just like this one!
Veneers are an excellent option for teeth that are otherwise in good health but have aesthetic faults that need to be covered up.
Teeth that are crooked, crowded, or have gaps between them
Patients who have crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth have the option of using veneers as an excellent replacement for braces. Because they are attached to the front surface of your teeth, they have the ability to immediately give your teeth the appearance of being straighter and more uniform. Even if the patient's original teeth are still present behind the veneers, a straight smile can be achieved by contouring each one in conjunction with its corresponding partner in order to get the desired result.
Even "instant braces" is a term that some people use to describe to Summerlin dental veneers.
Veneers are also significantly faster to complete than braces, and our Summerlin cosmetic dentist can place them in as few as two appointments. Dental veneers can help you attain the same look you want in a shorter amount of time if you don't have the time or don't want to spend it wearing aligners or other fixed orthodontic tools for a year. Your overall time commitment will often consist of two to three appointments spread out over a period of a few weeks.
Do you have an uneven smile? Your smile's overall appearance may suffer if it has asymmetrical shapes, such as teeth that are too short or aren't even with each other. Even if a person's teeth are healthy and their enamel has not been damaged, having teeth that are too short or that are uneven might be problematic from an aesthetic standpoint. The greatest solution is veneers since they are less invasive than dental crowns yet give superior stability than composite bonding. Veneers offer the best of both worlds.
A lovely smile is typically symmetrical when viewed from either side. Even if you have particularly uneven teeth, you may still be able to achieve this symmetry with the use of veneers.
In most cases, Dr. Cohan advises patients to have many veneers placed at the same time in order to achieve a more unified appearance. However, if the teeth are uneven or there is a problem known as "peg laterals," it is possible to occasionally place just a pair of veneers as needed. This procedure is possible.
You want to be pleased with the appearance of your teeth.
Because teeth are one of the first things people notice about you, it's not surprising that a lot of people are concerned about how their smile seems to others. And even though there are a lot of different ways to accomplish this, the smile makeover experience that dental veneers provide is unrivaled.
The knowledge that you can choose exactly how your teeth will look, down to their size, shape, and color, and that the entire process may be finished in only a few weeks is invaluable. Nothing—not braces, not whitening, nor bonding—can achieve the same results!
We take great satisfaction in the fact that our patients at our Summerlin location receive the highest level of care and aesthetics that is humanly feasible. When it comes to your grin, we want to make absolutely certain that you adore it just as much as we do. If you are thinking about getting dental veneers, we encourage you to make an appointment with Dr. Cohan for a consultation.
