Alternatives to improve your smile
Your smile says more about you than any other physical feature. It’s the first thing that other people notice about you. Imagine the difference a whiter, straighter, healthier smile could make for you. Veneers are an effective, conservative restorative option for the front teeth. When placed by an experienced cosmetic dentist, veneers can be used to:
- Restore chipped, malformed teeth
- Rejuvenate severely stained or discolored teeth
- Lengthen teeth that are too short
- Suitable alternative to orthodontics
A veneer consists of a porcelain shell that is bonded to the front surface of the tooth. The tooth is only minimally prepared, and very little enamel is removed, making a veneer a very conservative solution. Because veneers are customized to your unique specifications, options such as shade, shape, and size are available to drastically improve the appearance of your smile.
It is important to note that veneers aren’t just pretty to look at. Beneath the beautiful porcelain shell, veneers are surprisingly durable. They are designed to withstand normal chewing and biting forces and the bond between the porcelain and the natural tooth is extremely strong. In terms of homecare, veneers can be treated much like your natural teeth. Brushing and flossing can continue, uninterrupted. Eating and drinking are completely unaffected.
A bright, healthy smile improves your self-image and confidence. Over time, food, drinks, and natural aging can take a toll on your teeth. To discover how you can use veneers to restore your healthy smile, start by asking your cosmetic dentist about dental veneers in Plano.
