How veneers from your Seymour dentist can improve your smile
You’ve probably heard about dental veneers, and now you want to know if you are a good candidate for them. The truth is if your teeth are healthy and pain-free, you are an excellent candidate for dental veneers. Your dentists at Jackson County Dental in Seymour, IN, Dr. Matthew Pierce and Dr. Lane Severe want to introduce you to the benefits of dental veneers.
You are a great candidate for dental veneers if you:
- Have no tooth decay
- Have no dental problems causing you pain
- Practice great dental hygiene
- Want your smile to look as beautiful as possible
Dental veneers can help your smile look as beautiful as possible by hiding cosmetic problems like these:
- Excessive tooth wear due to aging or a bad bite
- Chips or cracks in your teeth from overuse or bad habits
- Broken or damaged teeth due to trauma
- Small gaps, spaces, or overlapped teeth due to genetics
- Discolorations due to medications or fluorosis
- Stains from lifestyle issues like tobacco use or coffee
Dental veneers are thin sheaths of translucent porcelain; they reflect light just like natural teeth. That means your porcelain veneers will look completely natural. Porcelain also resists stains. That means even if you smoke or drink coffee, you can still have a beautiful, white smile for years.
Veneers are also a conservative treatment because your dentists at Jackson County Dental only have to remove a tiny amount of tooth surface, just enough to compensate for the thickness of the veneers.
Dental veneer treatment takes between 2 and 3 appointments, beginning with your consultation appointment. Your second appointment is tooth preparation and study models. The models are sent off to a dental laboratory where skilled dental artisans create your veneers. Once your veneers are back from the laboratory, your last appointment will be scheduled. At your final appointment, your beautiful new veneers will be permanently cemented onto your teeth.
Just about everyone is an excellent candidate for dental veneers. It’s time to find out if you are too!
