Can Veneers Improve My Smile?

Columbus, OH – If you hide your smile because you don’t like how it looks, it may be time to consider a smile makeover. A bright white smile can boost your self-esteem and leave a lasting impact on those around you. Veneers can help you achieve that.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are very thin, custom-created shells that are designed to fit directly over your natural teeth. Made of porcelain or composite resin, they are bonded directly to the surface of your teeth. Veneers can be used to change the shape, size, length, or color of your smile so that you have the aesthetically pleasing smile of your dreams. 

The Benefits of Veneers

There are many benefits to veneers, including:

  1. Aesthetically pleasing appearance. Veneers totally transform your smile by taking miscolored or misshapen teeth or teeth that are chipped and turning them into a perfect smile. 
  2. Longevity. With proper oral care, your veneers can last for many, many years. Because veneers are made of very durably materials, they can withstand the wear and tear that natural teeth go through over the course of your life. 
  3. Say goodbye to stains. Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, so you don’t need to worry about your diet affecting their color. 
  4. Minimally invasive. When it comes to smile makeovers, veneers are the most minimally invasive procedure. All it takes is shaving down a bit of enamel from your teeth to allow space for the veneers. 
  5. Personalized treatment. Your veneers will be customized completely for your smile. We’ll work with you to make sure we have the right color, shape, and size so that your veneers fit in seamlessly with your natural smile.
  6. Correct issues. If you have minor dental issues, such as a gap between your front teeth or a minor misalignment, veneers can improve the appearance of your smile without orthodontic work.

The Veneer Procedure: What to Expect

Step One: Consultation and Planning

Getting veneers is a straightforward process, but it does involve a couple of trips to your dentist. Your first appointment will be a consultation and planning session. At this appointment, your dentist will assess your smile, discuss your smile goals, and help you select the appropriate shade for your veneers to ensure they match your natural teeth or achieve your desired look. A treatment plan can then be created.

Step Two: Teeth Preparation

Next, your teeth will be prepared for the veneers. At this visit hour dentist will remove a thin layer of enamel from the front surfaces of the teeth receiving veneers. This is important to ensure the veneers fit properly into your smile and don’t stick out in any way.

Step Three: Dental Impressions

Impressions are taken after the teeth are prepared and sent to a lab so your custom veneers can be created.

Step Four: Placement

When your veneers are created, you’ll return to your dentist’s office to have them placed. The dentist will check the fit before permanently bonding them to be sure it is correct. Adjustments are made if needed, and then a special adhesive is used to bond the veneers to the surface of your teeth. If any final adjustments are needed your dentist will make those and then you can be on your way to enjoying your new smile. 

Maintaining your veneers is as easy as maintaining your natural teeth. Proper oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing daily, and visiting your dentist for regular checkups are important. You should also avoid using your teeth as tools to open things or biting into hard objects. With proper care, your smile can last for years to come.
