Whether you never liked your smile or have acquired oral flaws through age or trauma, help may be as easy as a simple cosmetic procedure: Dental Veneers. At his Peoria, Arizona, practice. Johnny L. Smith, DMD uses veneers to remedy a wide range of smile flaws from chips to gaps. If you’re unhappy with yours, read on to learn whether veneers are the solution for you.
What are veneers?
Veneers are custom-made shells designed to fit perfectly over your teeth. They’re thin and formed from materials that closely resemble your natural teeth. The process of fitting veneers is permanent, and you can expect your veneers to last anywhere from 7 to 15 years, after which you can replace them.
One of the great things about veneers is that they don’t require any special care. All you need to take care of your veneers is to follow your regular good oral hygiene routine. This means you don’t need to do any more than your regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing to take care of your veneers.
What veneers can fix
Veneers can fix a couple of different imperfections in your smile, including:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Worn-down teeth
- Misaligned or uneven teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Gaps that are too wide
Veneers are great for fixing any smile flaws short of complete tooth replacement.
Veneers can improve your dental health
Veneers aren’t just for cosmetic imperfections. They’re also great for replacing damaged enamel. Enamel is essentially the outer coating of your teeth that protects the nerves and roots. Over time, this coating can become worn and eroded. This can lead to sensitivity, pain, and even tooth loss.
Veneers can act as a sort of replacement enamel, coating your teeth and protecting them from harsh acids and erosive wear. The American Academy even approves of Cosmetic Dentistry as an effective solution for damaged or lost enamel.
