Do you have a chipped tooth you want to correct? Maybe you have dental stains that just won’t go away. Whether you are dealing with these issues or a number of other ones, dental veneers in Lake Worth, FL can help you repair the look of your smile.
What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin coverings that are bonded to the front of teeth to correct a number of cosmetic problems. Dr. Suarez will prep each affected tooth for a dental veneer by removing a thin layer of tooth enamel. He will then take a dental impression to help make your veneers. After the veneers are custom made for you, Dr. Suarez will permanently bond each veneer into place, and your problem will be solved.
What Do Dental Veneers Treat?
- Chipped Teeth – A chipped tooth hurts the appearance of your smile. Dental veneer can effectively treat any chips and return your tooth to its correct shape. Dental veneers are also much more durable than other treatments that some dentists use to correct this type of cosmetic flaw.
- Cracked Teeth – Not only does a cracked tooth stand out in your smile, but it also leaves you vulnerable to further injury in the future. A crack makes your tooth more likely to break. A dental veneer does two things for a cracked tooth. First, it hides the crack and restores your appearance. Second, it supports your tooth and protects it from cracking further and breaking.
- Misshapen Teeth – Some teeth just aren’t shaped the way they are supposed to be. Whether bad luck or bad genes, there is really only one option to fix this problem. A dental veneer can cover the tooth and give you a regularly shaped tooth it its place.
- Dental Stains – Teeth whitening is an effective treatment for many dental stains, but some dental stains are more stubborn than others. These stains are resistant to dental whitening. Dental veneers will cover these persistent stains and give you back a dazzling white smile.
What Types Of Dental Veneers Does Dr. Suarez Offer?
Porcelain Veneer – Traditional dental veneers are made from porcelain and are wonderful at looking like real teeth. This is the less expensive of the two dental veneer options, but not because they are less effective. This type of veneer, while still very thin, is not as thin as Lumineers veneer.
Lumineers – Dr. Suarez is a Lumineers certified dentist and has the skills needed to give you a beautiful smile. These veneers are thinner than traditional veneers, and this benefits you in a few ways. One benefit is that more of your tooth stays intact. The thinner the veneer, the less enamel that needs to be removed. Additionally, with less enamel removal comes less prep time and a shorter procedure. You will be in and out before you know it.
