What Does Getting Veneers Mean for My Smile?

Find out the many ways veneers can improve the look of your teeth.

Have you ever thought to yourself that you don’t have the smile that you would like to have? Unfortunately, so many other people feel the veneersexact same way. Just normal wear and tear on teeth can cause them to chip, crack, break or become discolored. While you should be seeing your Sudbury dentist Dr. Reina Garcia every six months to maintain a healthy smile, if you are looking to correct your smile’s flaws then it’s time to find out if veneers are the right way to do it.

Porcelain veneers are a less invasive way to change the shape, color or size of your teeth without needing as much tooth preparation as other restorative dentistry treatments like dental crowns. Veneers are thin shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth to hide imperfections and to improve the overall look of your smile. Veneers are made from tooth-colored porcelain that not only cover defects but also are designed to look just like natural teeth. In fact, the porcelain used is designed to even mimic the translucency that real teeth offer, so you’ll get a restoration that looks natural and realistic every time.

Sometimes veneers can be placed immediately over the front of your teeth or your Sudbury cosmetic dentist may need to remove some enamel from your teeth to make room for your new restoration. Dental veneers can be great for,

  • Reshaping teeth that are uneven, cracked, chipped or have excessive wear due to teeth grinding. Veneers can restore their shape.
  • Hiding major discolorations and stains that don’t respond to whitening treatment. Better yet, porcelain veneers are stain-resistant.
  • Providing additional structural support. Veneers are highly durable so applying these restorations to the front of your teeth can increase strength and resilience back into weakened teeth.
  • Instantly straightening your smile. Consider veneers like orthodontics but without all the metal brackets and wires. Veneers can close gaps, cover slightly rotated or crooked teeth, and even minor overlapping.
