Do You Need Dental Veneers? Here Are Five Reasons To Consider Them
Do you consider yourself to be self-conscious about your smile? Do you look in the mirror and wish that your teeth were whiter, straighter, or somehow even more beautiful? Have you tried other cosmetic treatments in the past, only to feel disappointed by the way they turned out? If so, then dental veneers may be right for you! Here are five reasons why they’re worth considering:
Unsightly Yellow Stains on Your Teeth
Dental veneers are a great way to achieve a whiter, brighter smile. If you have deep stains or tooth discoloration that doesn’t respond to whitening products, veneers may be the right solution for you.
Although professional whitening treatments offer amazing results, some people have significantly dark tooth structure or take medications that permanently alter the color of their teeth (such as antibiotics like tetracycline.) Such dark stains can’t be bleached out, no matter how hard you try.
Veneers completely mask the tooth behind them, so you can choose what color you want them to be. Dr. Yazdan can help you select a shade that compliments your natural skin tone and lip color. The bright porcelain looks like naturally white teeth. No bleaching is required! As an added bonus, the bright color of your porcelain veneers will hold their shade for years to come.
Chipped or Misshaped Teeth
Do you have chipped or misshaped teeth? If so, you may want to consider dental veneers. Since each veneer is handcrafted in a dental lab, we can select exactly how they are shaped. From the width and length to the contour of the biting edges, no detail is left out.
Issues like slightly chipped enamel (where you don’t need a dental crown), narrow teeth, or surface irregularities like pitted surfaces can easily be erased. Once the veneer is bonded over the front of your tooth, your smile looks perfectly whole again. Veneers provide better protection than composite bonding but are less invasive than full coverage crowns; they’re specifically designed for issues such as this!
Veneers are perfect for teeth with aesthetic flaws that are otherwise completely healthy.
Crooked, Crowded, or Gapped Teeth
Veneers are a great alternative to braces for patients with crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth. Since they are bonded to the front of your teeth, they can quickly give them a straighter, more uniform appearance. Each one is specifically shaped with its partners to create a straight smile where the teeth look perfectly aligned, even though the natural teeth are still behind them.
Some people even refer to Newport Beach dental veneers as “instant braces.”
Veneers are also much quicker to complete than braces, and they can be placed in just a couple of visits with our Newport Beach cosmetic dentist. If you don’t have or want to spend 12 months in aligners or wearing fixed orthodontic appliances, dental veneers can help you achieve the same look you want in less time. Your total time investment is usually 2-3 appointments over the course of a few weeks.
Do you have an uneven smile? Asymmetrical shapes, such as short and uneven teeth, can detract from the overall appearance of your smile. Even if short or uneven teeth are healthy and free of enamel damage, they can pose aesthetic concerns. Veneers offer the best solution, as they are less invasive than dental crowns but provide better stability than composite bonding.
A beautiful smile is usually symmetrical from one side to the other. Veneers can help achieve this symmetry, even if you have specifically uneven teeth.
Typically, Dr. Yazdan recommends placing several veneers at once to create a more uniform appearance. But it’s possible to occasionally place just a couple of veneers as needed, in the instance of uneven teeth or conditions like “peg laterals.”
You Want to Love the Way Your Teeth Look
Teeth are one of the first things people notice about you, so it’s no wonder that so many people want to love the way their smile looks. And while there are a number of ways to achieve this, dental veneers offer the best smile makeover experience.
Knowing you can select exactly how your teeth will look, down to their size, shape, and color, and complete the entire process in just a few weeks is priceless. No amount of braces, whitening, or bonding can do the same!
