As we get older, signs of wear and tear begin showing in our smiles. These cracks, gaps, chips, discoloration, and misalignments of our teeth can cause us to feel self-conscious and maybe we don’t smile as freely as we should. You may look in the mirror and feel overwhelmed by all the changes you see in your smile. Maybe you’re worried about the amount of dental work that you’ll need to revitalize your smile. Dental veneers could be an option to correct these problems in just a few office visits with just one procedure instead of multiple.
Refresh Your Existing Smile With Dental Veneers
With porcelain dental veneers, Annapolis, MD dentists, Lee, Bonfiglio, Vesely & Associates can improve the visual aesthetics of your smile by correcting the color, shape, and spacing of your teeth. Dental veneers can remove spaces between your teeth, reshape oddly-shaped teeth or whiten stained teeth. If your teeth are chipped or are showing signs of wear, porcelain veneers can protect them from further damage while also restoring their appearance in a way that looks and feels natural.
Since everything we eat affects our teeth, eating foods with dyes or that are acidic like coffee, most fruit, and sugar can damage enamel, resulting in sensitive or discolored teeth.Some patients may consider having their teeth whitened, but dental veneers may be right for you if you have multiple concerns that need to be addressed.
For minor gaps between teeth, or a few misaligned teeth, dental veneers could be a quicker and less expensive treatment option than orthodontic intervention. Porcelain veneers are customized for each patient’s mouth and placed over your existing teeth, so your LBV dentist can design yours to cover any minor misalignment, gaps, or cracks.
Are Dental Veneers Right For Me?
The veneers are installed by your LBV dentist after he or she removes the outermost layer of enamel. Then they are simply adhered to the teeth. This is unlike a dental crown, where the teeth are removed or altered. With dental veneers the teeth in your smile will still be your own, simply covered with a protective layer. The result is an enhanced version of your smile!
There are some situations where porcelain veneers may not be the best option at this time. For example, individuals who suffer from bruxism (habitual grinding of teeth) may want to consult with your dentist about addressing this issue before veneers are installed. Patients with very sensitive teeth may not want to undergo the procedure until this issue is addressed. Fortunately, once these issues are treated, most patients are able to benefit from veneers or are able to consider other cosmetic options provided by Lee, Bonfiglio, Vesely & Associates.
