If you feel that your smile leaves a lot to be desired, you may want to consider porcelain veneers. This cosmetic dentistry treatment has been around for a long time. Recently, there has been a resurgence of this method of enhancing smiles. Hollywood celebrities used removable veneers in the past and now they use the more permanent and durable veneers of the present day. Modern dental technology makes it easier than ever to experience your own Hollywood smile in a short period of time.
Cosmetic Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are used to address a variety of issues. They can be used to make slightly misaligned teeth appear straighter. Damage to teeth such as chips or discoloration can be corrected with veneers. Disfigured teeth and gaps can also be addressed with these teeth coverings. There are some things to consider when contemplating getting veneers. Your dentist will talk to you about these things such as whether or not your teeth have enough enamel to accept the veneers. Sufficient healthy tooth enamel is required in order to apply dental veneers. They are not used to correct severely misaligned teeth or cover up major gaps between teeth.
This is a permanent solution to whatever issue is being addressed, so good candidates will have excellent oral hygiene and oral health. Even though veneers are permanent, they may need replacing from time to time so you should be aware that there may be additional costs in the future. Your dentist will go over the pros and cons with you regarding your choice of veneers so that you can make a fully informed decision.
The decision to get porcelain veneers is not one to be taken lightly since it does entail more work when the time for replacement comes. However, if you are interested in this option for getting your best smile ever, contact Hudson Oaks Family Dentistry to make an appointment for a consultation.
