Do you want to dramatically change your appearance in a week or less? Having a Hollywood smile can improve your career performance and your self-confidence. The fastest way to whiten your teeth and fix imperfections or damaged teeth might be to choose dental veneers from a respected cosmetic dentist.
What Are Dental Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin laminates that are attached to the front of your natural teeth. Used in cosmetic dentistry, they allow the alteration of tooth position, shape, size, and color. Veneers can improve your smile almost instantly and can fix the appearance of:
- ● Gapped teeth
- ● Stained teeth
- ● Chipped teeth
- ● Slanted teeth
- ● Some rotated teeth
The Benefits of Veneer Dental Procedures
Teeth whitening cannot always remove stains on the front of teeth, and crowns are a more drastic option when veneers are not enough to protect a tooth from further damage. Cosmetic dental veneers offer these advantages over other options:
- ● Instant orthodontics, allowing patients to fly in for treatment and leave in a week or two with a new Hollywood smile
- ● Minimal or no tooth preparation, or loss of tooth material, depending on the style chosen
- ● No need for general or local anesthesia
Types of Dental Veneers
There are three types of dental veneers used in cosmetic dentistry. Each has a specific purpose, and your dentist will help you determine if you are a good candidate for this kind of dental work and which type is best for your teeth.
Lumineers™ require no tooth preparation, and the veneers are adhered to your existing teeth. These tend to be well suited for people with smaller or inclined teeth. The veneers used will be carefully selected to provide a natural appearance and make your smile even more beautiful without appearing fake.
Minimal Preparation Veneers
This type of veneer is sometimes called a “contact lens” veneer because of their thin construction. The surface of the tooth is slightly reduced to adhere to these veneers. For those who are not good candidates for a no preparation veneer, these are an excellent solution for those who have short or small teeth that do not protrude.
Full Preparation Veneers
If your teeth are large or slant outward, you might still be a good candidate for full prep veneers. In this application, a minor reduction of the front tooth surface is performed first, allowing these veneers to improve the appearance of teeth that are too large or slanted outward slightly.
