Dental Veneers: The Fastest Way to Improve Your Smile

January 12, 2018

We live in a world where many people expect fast results. Text messages are received instantaneously, food can be heated in minutes, and a full library of televisions shows is available with the touch of a button. When it comes to dental work, most patients want the same: instant results. Luckily, there are cosmetic dental options that can transform your smile in just a few hours.

One of the fastest ways to change the appearance of your smile is with dental veneers. This treatment can be used to overcome many common dental problems. The best thing that you can do is schedule a consultation with our team to see if this treatment is right for you.

When are Veneers Needed?

Patients choose veneers for a variety of reasons. Some people are looking to overcome minor dental blemishes, while other patients need a full smile makeover. If your teeth have a strong structure and they are healthy overall, then dental veneers might be the right treatment to help with aesthetics.

Here are a few issues that can be corrected with veneers:

  • Severe staining or discoloration on the surface of the teeth
  • Misalignment or gaps are present between the teeth
  • You want to improve the size consistency of the teeth
  • Chips, cracks, or other damage is visible when you smile

When there is serious structural damage to the tooth, such as major chips or severe decay, then it might be better to have a crown instead of veneers. You can talk to our experienced team to learn more about the recommendations that are right for your situation.

Dental Veneers: What to Expect

After we’ve had a consultation to determine that you are a good candidate for veneers, the next step is to prepare your teeth for the treatment. We will discuss your desires to ensure that the treatment matches your wishes to create the smile of your dreams.

First, it is necessary to remove a small portion of the enamel from the surface of the teeth. Then, we can take an impression of your mouth to ensure that the veneers are created to match your teeth exactly.

You will need to come back to our office when the veneers are ready. We will place them on the surface of the teeth and make adjustments to ensure that they are natural. We always consider the shape, size, and color of the teeth to create a beautiful smile.

After the veneers are placed, then you take care of your teeth in the same way as before. Regular brushing and flossing will protect your teeth and gums, ensuring the long-lasting results that you desire.
