Veneers Give You A Symmetrical Smile

Cleveland, X, dentist offers veneers

If you have several imperfections throughout your smile, you may be overwhelmed at the many different ways to correct them. Professional whitening can be used to remove discoloration, and Invisalign may be used to straighten your teeth. While you can combine several esthetic treatments to achieve your appearance goals, there is a single method that can correct these blemishes. Your Cleveland, TX, family dentist offers porcelain veneers that can help your grin appear more even and vibrant.

How Veneers Stand Out

There are many different cosmetic options available for patients to improve their smiles. The best choice will depend on your unique needs and goals. For some people, their main concern is to have more vibrant pearly whites. This may be achieved with the help of professional whitening or bonding. Other patients may be concerned with having a straight and even-appearing grin, which can be fixed with methods such as Invisalign or contouring. However, if you have several imperfections you would like to correct, it can be daunting to have multiple treatments done. Instead, porcelain veneers can be used to achieve your goals. This method can improve the appearance of dull or discolored teeth, small gaps, or misshapen teeth.

Veneers Are For Cosmetic Purposes

These porcelain-shaped shells will be applied to the front of your teeth to create the effect of an even and bright smile. This method is only for esthetic purposes and cannot protect or repair your teeth. If you have damaged a tooth, your dentist may recommend having a crown placed. Dental crowns can be made of porcelain, metal, or zirconia depending on where they will be added. While these caps can also improve the appearance of your teeth, they are mainly used to protect the area from further damage.

Getting Started With Veneers

Before any cosmetic treatment, you will need to have a consultation with your dentist. These are a permanent enhancement that includes shaving down a small amount of your natural tooth. While this is safe, it is irreversible, so it is important that your oral health is in good shape, and that you understand the process of this option. If you have any problems, such as cavities or gum disease, these will need to be treated before the process can begin.

After the consultation, the next step is preparing for the shells to be placed. Your natural teeth will need to be shaved down for the porcelain to fit properly. Impressions will be taken of your smile to get measurements for the shell. When they are ready, they will be cemented in place. These will last for many years with proper maintenance.
