Have you ever wanted to improve the appearance of your smile? You’re not alone. Ever since 1928, many movie stars have enhanced their smiles through the magic of dental veneers!
But dental veneers aren’t just for celebrities! Just about anybody can enjoy the cosmetic benefits of dental veneers. They are thin layers or shells made from tooth-colored materials — porcelain at our office — that are custom-designed to fit over the front surface of a tooth, similar to the way false nails fit onto fingernails.
A veneer can help to improve the aesthetic appearance of a tooth that has been badly discolored or damaged through decay or injury. Dental veneers are popular for their effectiveness in making imperfect teeth look more attractive.
Veneers can do more than just restore the appearance of an imperfect tooth: In some cases, dental veneers help to provide some protection for a tooth that’s vulnerable to damage.
Porcelain veneers are used to correct marginally misaligned teeth; to restore teeth that are broken, worn, or fractured; to close large gaps between teeth; to improve the appearance of irregularly shaped teeth; or to whiten teeth that are severely stained or discolored.
If you have dental veneers, your dentist may recommend that you avoid certain foods and beverages that may stain or discolor your veneers. Red wine, coffee and tea are three infamous, veneer-staining beverages.
So, if you’ve been meaning to change the appearance of your smile for the better, we encourage you to call our office at 541.787.4733 to discuss how dental veneers could help you smile with confidence!
