What To Consider When Getting Dental Veneers

Have you been wondering if dental veneers are a good choice for your smile? If so, it will help to know the following things about them to make a more informed decision. 

Dental Veneers Can Fix Tooth Color

One of the nice things about dental veneers is that they give you the ability to change the color of your teeth. This may be very important to you if you have issues with your teeth that cannot be fixed by simple whitening, such as a single tooth that is very dark, or major staining that would be difficult to fix. You'll end up being able to have teeth that are the exact shade of white that you want, helping them look natural with the rest of your face.

Dental Veneers Can Fix Dental Alignment

It's possible that you are not happy with the way that your teeth are aligned. This could be teeth that do not show much when you smile or teeth that have gaps between them. Dental veneers help change the look of the teeth so that the alignment looks perfect. You can slightly change the size of the teeth and fill in those gaps so that the problems are hidden behind the porcelain surface.

Dental Veneers Can Strengthen Teeth

Know that the dental veneer process involves putting a thin layer of porcelain on the front surface of your teeth. This is going to strengthen your teeth by making them thicker than they were before. This can give you more confidence when eating since your teeth will have something on the front surface that helps with chewing. 

Dental Veneers Are Custom Made

Be aware that there is no one-size-fits-all solution for dental veneers. When you go to a cosmetic dentist to have this procedure performed, they are going to custom make a set of dental veneers specifically for your teeth. This ensures that they are going to fit and look perfect to give you the best smile possible.

Dental Veneers Are Not A Reversible Procedure.

The process of installing dental veneers involves shaving off a thin layer of enamel to attach them to your teeth. This means that the process of having veneers is not going to be reversible once you have it done. The veneers will need to be maintained and replaced over time as well, but it will be well worth it for a smile that you love.
