Find out if you could be the ideal candidate for this popular cosmetic restoration.
It’s amazing the many ways in which cosmetic dentistry can improve and enhance the appearance of your smile. In fact, more and more people are turning to a cosmetic restoration known as a dental veneer to hide common smile imperfections. Our Seymour, IN, dentists Dr. Matthew Pierce, Dr. Haley Doose, and Dr. Douglas Gardner are here to help you get your dream smile with dental veneers.
Tell Me About Dental Veneers
Veneers are very thin porcelain restorations that are adhered to the front surface of one or more teeth to alter and enhance the shape, size, or color of your smile. While most people get a full set of veneers, this restoration can also be placed on a single flawed tooth.
Just like fake fingernails can cosmetically improve the appearance of your nails and your hands, veneers can do the same for a single tooth and your whole smile. After all, having a beautiful smile can certainly provide major aesthetic benefits and boost your self-esteem.
You may be ideal for veneers if you want to correct:
- Stains and discolorations
- Chips, cracks, fractures, and breaks
- Spaces between teeth
- Misshapen or asymmetrical teeth
- Worn-down teeth
- Crooked or twisted teeth
If there is a cosmetic flaw that you want to hide then chances are good that dental veneers can do this.
Good Candidates for Dental Veneers
If you want a smile that is whiter, straighter, or more symmetrical then chances are good that veneers can help. Before getting veneers, our Seymour, IN, dentist will need to examine your smile to determine two things:
- That your smile is healthy enough for cosmetic dentistry
- That the problems you want to treat can be addressed with dental veneers
It’s also important to know that to get veneers we will need to shave off a very small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth to make room for the veneers. While this shouldn’t cause any discomfort, removing enamel is permanent. This means that your veneers are a lifelong restoration and can’t be reversed.
