The Amazing Versatility of Dental Veneers
Having problems with your teeth is nothing to smile about. But, even if you were born with them, that doesn’t mean there’s nothing you can do to change them.
At Healthy Dental Expressions in Lake Worth, Florida, Dr. Henry Suarez can help fix the dental flaws that keep you from smiling. Dr. Suarez knows firsthand how embarrassing tooth troubles can negatively impact your life, but he can help.
In reality, most people with dental issues struggle with more than one dental problem. That’s why Dr. Suarez loves the versatility of dental veneers when it comes to correcting imperfect smiles.
How dental veneers work
Veneers are super thin, custom-made shells made from tooth-like materials, like porcelain or composite resin. This shell covers the exposed surface of your teeth, giving you the smile you’ve always wanted. Dr. Suarez bonds veneers in place permanently, so you can talk, smile, eat, drink, and laugh without worrying about them shifting or moving.
You can get one veneer or several, depending on how many teeth you’d like to correct. Dr. Suarez custom sizes and seals each veneer to the individual to ensure a perfect fit. First, he carefully removes a thin, exterior layer of your tooth known as enamel. This step creates room for the thin shell to fit on your tooth without adding bulk and keeps it lined up with the rest of your teeth.
Dr. Suarez also uses veneer material that matches the shade and shape of your natural teeth. Once in place, veneers brighten your smile and make it flawless — all while looking and feeling completely natural.
What sets dental veneers apart
At Healthy Dental Expressions, Dr. Suarez has noticed many patients worry about more than one dental issue. For example, you may want to whiten them or close a gap in between some of your teeth. Fortunately, veneers provide an amazingly versatile treatment option because they can correct multiple problems with one solution, which leaves our patients smiling!
What could be better than that? When you’re tackling multiple dental issues with traditional one-off solutions, the costs can add up. Veneers can solve that, too! Because they can treat more than one issue, they offer a cost-effective alternative for giving you a total smile makeover.
Here are a few of the smile flaws veneers can address:
It’s easy to damage your teeth by biting something hard or through impact. But veneers can hide embarrassing cracks and chips, making your teeth appear whole, healthy, and imperfection-free. They also provide a protective seal that prevents your teeth from further damage or decay.
It’s a sad reality: teeth move over time, whether you had braces or not. For many people, shifting teeth leads to noticeable gaps and spaces that impact their smile. But you can find long-lasting solutions with veneers because they get sized and shaped to cover those gaps and spaces between your teeth.
Brighten and whiten
Unfortunately, tooth stains involving the deeper layers of your teeth can’t get erased with professional whitening treatments. However, veneers can whiten and brighten all of your teeth at once by hiding those tough stains. Plus, you can use veneers to cover up other unsightly dental issues, like uneven edges and surfaces, crooked teeth, and previous dental work!
Streamline your smile
Do you have a tooth that doesn’t match the rest? Join the club. Many people have at least one tooth that doesn’t quite match the rest in color or size. Grinding your teeth can cause them to wear unevenly. But don’t despair — the team at Healthy Dental Expressions can custom-shape your veneers to fix these inconsistencies and give you a uniform smile.
When to consider dental veneers
Veneers are an exceptional solution for people who want to improve the appearance of their smile. While most people are good candidates for veneers, they’re aren’t for everyone. Dr. Suarez may not recommend this restorative treatment if you have:
- Severe, active gum disease
- Weakened teeth
- Thin dental enamel
Before recommending a course of treatment, Dr. Suarez at Healthy Dental Expressions checks your oral health for existing dental conditions and also reviews your dental history. You can rest easy knowing Dr. Suarez customizes a treatment plan to help you meet your dental goals so you can get the smile you’ve always wanted.
