Did you know the appearance of your teeth is equally important as their health? An attractive smile is crucial to your self-esteem. Unfortunately, if you’re like many adults, you might feel insecure about how they look. Genetics, poor dental health, and bad habits can all lead to a variety of aesthetic imperfections that might cause you to hide your smile when talking, eating, or taking a picture. Dr. Allen can transform your self-image and your teeth with veneers. You’ll enjoy drastic, lasting results using a minimally invasive procedure.
Veneers are thin shells bonded to the front side of the teeth to cover cosmetic flaws while improving their color, size, shape, and proportion. Their versatility is the perfect option to correct several issues using only one procedure, so you don’t need to worry about a lengthy treatment plan. When compared to veneers used in the past, they are now thinner to be less invasive and look natural.
After an initial consultation to ensure you’re a candidate, you can enhance your smile in as little as 2 appointments. During your first visit, your cosmetic dentist will clean your teeth and prepare them for bonding by removing a small amount of enamel. Although no one wants to permanently alter their teeth, it’s necessary to ensure the veneers will sit flush.
Dr. Allen will take impressions of your mouth to create your veneers in a dental lab. While you wait, we will attach temporary ones. In about 2 weeks, your new veneers will be ready to be bonded to your teeth. At the end of your appointment, you will walk out with a beautiful, confident smile.
Veneers can fix several issues, including:
If you’re dissatisfied with your smile, you might be a candidate for veneers. Generally, if you have good oral and general health, you can benefit from the procedure. Dr. Allen will perform a thorough consultation to ensure veneers can help you reach your goals.
When compared to other elective procedures, veneers offer several advantages, including:
Veneers are thinner than ever, but they can last for a decade or longer with the right aftercare. To protect their longevity, use nonabrasive dental products during your oral hygiene routine. Besides brushing and flossing, don’t forget to visit your dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. It’s best to avoid any habits that can damage your veneers, like using your teeth as tools or biting your nails.
