Dental veneers provide mainly cosmetic benefits to help you feel great about your smile. Whether you have never loved the way your teeth look or have recently become dissatisfied with your teeth, these amazing yet tiny pieces of porcelain can be just the answer you need to feel confident in your innate beauty once again. This treatment basically provides a covering for your own teeth, meaning that you get to keep the proven strength of your natural teeth while making the visible parts of them whiter, brighter and more perfect.
A Covering for Flaws
The main reason that our patients choose dental veneers is to experience whiter, brighter, more perfect-looking teeth. Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain placed over the fronts of your teeth. You may choose to have only one problematic tooth covered, or you may choose to have all of your visible teeth covered. They are different from crowns in that they do not cover your entire tooth.
A New Shape
Since each veneer is uniquely customized for each of your teeth, you can get just the right shape and size for you. You may want them cut to match your teeth exactly. However, if you are unhappy with the size or shape of one of your teeth, you can present a new front to the world with your veneers.
A Permanent Option
You should consider veneers to be a permanent dental repair to your mouth. Because some of the enamel from the front of each tooth is etched away, you will need to keep veneers on your teeth for the rest of your life. Depending on your age when you first get them, you may need to get new veneers placed eventually. Most of them today last from 10 to 15 years if they are cared for well.
When you choose dental veneers, you are choosing a long-lasting cosmetic dental alternative to more invasive treatments. Get in touch with us at Implant and Comprehensive Dentistry to get started. Contact us today for a consultation in Winter Haven or Champions Gate.
