A Cosmetic Dentist Can Give You Long-Lasting Veneers

One of the many ways a cosmetic dentist can improve the way your teeth look is by installing veneers. A veneer is a tooth-shaped shell that is used to cover the front part of a tooth. It hides any imperfections on the tooth it is covering like stains, discoloration or disfigurement.

Why a cosmetic dentist might recommend veneers

There are many reasons why a dentist might decide veneers would be right for a patient, but one of the reasons why these prosthetics are so popular is the fact they are so effective at making any smile look flawless. Veneers have been used in Hollywood for over a century and there is a very good chance your favorite celebrities already have them.

Veneers do not just improve the appearance of the wearer's teeth, they also make it easier to keep them looking perfect. Patients can thank the stain-resistant properties of ceramic and porcelain – the two materials that are typically used to make veneers – for that.

Besides hiding stains and discoloration on a person's teeth, veneers can also be used to deal with minor alignment issues, chipped or broken teeth and spaces between teeth.

What to expect when getting veneers

Once a patient has been cleared for veneers, the process is quite straightforward. During the first appointment, the dentist will take a digital image of the person's teeth and the data is relayed to a monitor which the dentist uses to design the prosthetics. The dentist asks for the patient's input while selecting the shade, shape and length of the veneers.

The information is then sent to a dental lab where the devices are made.

During the first appointment, the dentist might prepare the patient's teeth for the veneers. A small portion of enamel is removed to ensure the veneers fit properly. The patient is typically fitted with temporary veneers while they wait for the devices to be made.

During the second appointment, the dentist will remove the temporary veneers and install the customized veneers. That marks the completion of the procedure. The patient might experience increased teeth sensitivity but that typically goes away after a couple of days.

Benefits of getting veneers done by a cosmetic dentist

There are many reasons why people decide to go with veneers to improve their smile. These include:

  • Veneers do not require specialized cleaning
  • Veneers made from ceramics or porcelain are resistant to stains
  • Veneers can last up to 15 years with good oral hygiene
  • Veneers look natural. It is virtually impossible to tell if a person has veneers
  • Veneers can be used to fix a variety of dental issues

Veneers will give you a confidence boost

If you find yourself reluctant to smile in public because of the condition of your teeth, it does not have to be that way. Veneers make it possible for everyone to have a set of teeth they will happily flash every chance they get.
