Dental Veneers For The Movie-Star Smile You’ve Always Wanted
Are you sporting chipped, stained, discolored, or crooked teeth? If you are, you’d probably love to fix those issues and have a more brilliant, dazzling smile. The good news is that dental veneers from the expert dentists at Family Smiles of Fleming Island can help you make it possible!
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers can fix virtually any problem with the look of your teeth by simply covering them up. Veneers are thin porcelain or resin shells that your dentist will bond with a special adhesive to the front of your teeth. The veneer can be shaped and colored however you like, giving you a whole new smile without major dental reconstruction.
Veneers are applied to each tooth individually. This means you can have a veneer placed over a single tooth or multiple teeth to fix problem areas.
When are veneers a good choice?
Veneers are primarily a cosmetic option and can only be placed over healthy teeth. This makes them a fantastic option for more easily fixing issues with the look of your teeth without having to perform a more involved restoration such as a dental crown.
Are veneers resilient?
How long your veneers will last depends on a few factors. Some people prefer resin veneers that don’t require removal of healthy tooth structure and are a reversible procedure. However, the resin can stain and can break or chip more easily and need to be replaced.
Porcelain veneers require the etching of tooth structure and are a permanent procedure. They don’t stain.
Both types of veneers require good dental hygiene habits to keep them looking nice. Plus, you’ll want to avoid biting into things (such as apples and corn on the cob), biting your nails, or using your teeth to open packages.
Ready for a brilliant smile?
Veneers are a relatively easy way to get the perfect movie-star smile you’ve always wanted. Under the expert hand of our dentists here at Family Smiles of Fleming Island, you’ll be brilliant in no time!
