Find out how dental veneers could quickly give you a new and improved appearance.
Are you feeling less than confidence about your appearance because your smile is lacking? Are you dealing with chips, discolorations, or gaps between teeth? If so, then you could be an ideal candidate for dental veneers. From the office of our Lake Oswego, OR, dentist Dr. Colin Smith, find out the many ways dental veneers can improve your smile.
What are dental veneers?
Veneers are very thin shells made from medical-grade porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth to hide common imperfections and to improve the overall shape, size, color, and alignment of your smile.
While veneers don’t have to be placed on all of your teeth, they are ideal for patients who are dealing with more widespread imperfections that bonding, tooth reshaping, or professional whitening won’t be able to address.
What are the benefits of dental veneers?
Here are just some of the advantages of getting dental veneers from your dentist in Lake Oswego, OR.
The porcelain used to create your veneers is designed to look just like real tooth enamel. They even reflect light in the exact same way; therefore, no one will even be able to tell that your beautiful smile isn’t actually yours.
Fix a Variety of Issues
Since veneers cover the entire front surface of your teeth they can hide a wide range of cosmetic imperfections including:
- Gaps between teeth
- Chips and cracks
- Misshapen or oddly shaped teeth
- Worn teeth
- Teeth that are too small
- Slightly crooked or misaligned teeth
Veneers have the ability to not only be able to give you a whiter and more even smile but they can even give you a straighter set of teeth without ever having to turn to braces.
Thanks to the medical-grade porcelain you know you are getting a durable restoration that can withstand everyday biting and chewing. Another wonderful benefit is that porcelain is stain-resistant. As long as you are careful with your veneers they could last several years before needing to be replaced.
