If you’re like most people, you consider a bright, attractive smile to be an essential component of putting your best face forward. Unfortunately, if you’ve got severely stained, chipped, or misshapen teeth, you may be reluctant to let your smile shine on others. However, thanks to advances in modern dentistry technology, there is no reason for you or anyone else to have to hide your smile behind your hand or otherwise conceal it from others due to problems with your teeth. If the appearance of your teeth is standing between you and the stunning smile of your dreams, talk to your dentist about whether veneers are a good option for you. Here’s what you need to know about veneers:
What Are Veneers?
Dental veneers are a layer of material placed over a tooth or teeth for the purpose of improving its appearance as well as protecting it from further damage. For instance, if a tooth has been seriously damaged by tooth decay or is chipped or fractures, veneers help keep it safe. Some teeth or so badly stained that traditional whitening techniques are useless, and veneers offer a way to have a bright smile to those who ordinarily wouldn’t be able to.
What Do Veneers Entail?
Most patients need at least three dental appointments in the process of having veneers installed. The first appointment is exploratory — your dentist will determine whether you’re a good candidate for veneers and work with you to develop a plan. During your next appointment, your dentist will prepare your teeth for the veneers. Your veneers will be placed on your teeth during your third visit. You’ll also receive instructions on how to care for the veneers in order to keep them in the best possible condition.
