Everyone wants a beautiful smile, and thanks to the help of cosmetic dentistry, anyone can have the smile of their dreams. Cosmetic dental procedures are those that improve the aesthetic look of your teeth. They take cracked, chipped and discolored teeth and transform them into the pearly whites everyone aspires to have in their mouth. Veneers are only one of these procedures but are a great way to improve the look of your teeth. As your go-to North Texas Dentist, HomeTown Dental has all of the information on veneers.
What Are Veneers?
You may have heard of Veneers before, but do you know what they actually are? Veneers are basically small pieces of porcelain placed over teeth. They recreate the natural look of your teeth and also add a layer of stability when compared to enamel. They will not only completely reverse the effects of years of coffee drinking, but they will also strengthen your teeth once they are in place.
How Veneers Help
Veneers help by improving the look and structural integrity of your teeth. They can correct issues such as chipped or fractured teeth, severe discoloration and small gaps between two teeth. Since a thin layer of enamel needs to be scraped off of your teeth before a veneer can be added, this procedure is permanent. It is important to consult your dentist before deciding if this cosmetic dental procedure is right for you.
Whether you’re looking to strengthen your teeth or restore them to their former glory, veneers may be the right option for you. They have been improving the lives of people since their invention in 1928 and can help to dramatically improve the look of your teeth. Have any questions regarding veneers or cosmetic dentistry?
