Let’s Talk About Dental Veneers
- May 1, 2017
Today we want to talk about dental veneers. This is one of the easiest ways a patient can fix up a brokedown smile through cosmetic dentistry. Keep reading to hear all about the possibilities, and then be sure to follow up and schedule your smile makeover consultation with Dr. Bistritz.
Dental Veneers 101
Here’s what you need to know: our smile-enhancing dental veneers are essentially just durable shells that get applied to the front of your existing teeth so we can cover over all the deep dental damage you have incurred.
A porcelain veneer from Dr. Bistritz will make your smile look completely new again. They are also very strong, so you will not have to change your diet, and you can still brush and floss just like you always would.
Veneers are good for…
Brightening Your Smile
Discolored teeth can cause you to want to hide out and lay low. We have a few ways to address such an issue including professional teeth whitening. Yet, if you have really bad stains or if the natural shade of your teeth is growing darker, we might recommend dental veneers.
Closing Gaps And Addressing Other Orthodontic Issues
If you are dealing with chipped teeth, or if your teeth are out of alignment or you have gaps between them, we can also correct these issues with the help of dental veneers. Because they transform your smile without delay, veneers are often nicknamed “instant orthodontics.” They are much easier than braces!
Taking On A Gummy Smile
Your teeth aren’t always the problem. If your gums extend too far down onto your teeth, they can make your teeth appear small and out of proportion. This is called a gummy smile, and we can often correct it with gum reshaping or recontouring, but we can also correct it with dental veneers. Our veneers can be crafted to be longer than your natural teeth, effectively balancing the proportions between teeth and gums.
What To Expect
If you are ready to start your transformation, here’s what the process will look like: first we will thoroughly clean your teeth to prepare them for the veneers. A nontoxic adhesive is applied to the front of each prepared tooth, and Dr. Bistritz will carefully place the veneer in the correct position. The adhesive bonds the veneer to the tooth, creating a long-lasting and stable connection.
Keep in mind that we can also provide “prepless” veneers if you want to explore that option. Thanks to advances in dental technology, we can offer veneers so thin, they can sit flush with your teeth without removing any enamel. They are called “prepless” veneers because the teeth do not need to be prepared before using adhesive.
