Many men and women are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth. It could be a chip or crack. Perhaps they have yellowed over the years.
You Don’t Have to Live With Chips and Cracks
You don’t have to live with imperfections in your smile. In today’s article, we discuss one of these solutions: dental veneers. At David A. Rice, DDS, we provide veneers for myriad tooth issues.
In a perfect world, each of your prized teeth would stay healthy, strong, and brilliant white from childhood to your golden years. However, our teeth work hard for us and take some bumps along the way.
Most Illinois men and women will need to restore a tooth at some point. And if you only need one tooth restored, you’re fortunate. Some men and women need a restoration every few years.
And there are also individuals whose teeth are healthy, but they were never attractive, to begin with.
What are Dental Veneers?
Traditional veneers come in the form of tooth-colored “shells” that are fitted to the teeth. Each veneer is customized to one individual tooth and is affixed permanently to the front. Once placed, it covers the entire visible portion of the tooth.
A veneer can be used when the underlying tooth is structurally sound and free of tooth decay. A beautiful veneer can cover a chip or crack or correct the alignment of a tooth that appears slightly off-kilter as compared to surrounding teeth.
Veneers are Custom-Matched to Your Teeth
Veneers are created with dental porcelain or composite resin. Many individuals find veneers appealing because they can create a whiter smile. A veneer can also protect a tooth from damage.
The latest veneers are thinner and stronger than ever. Your dentist only has to remove a minuscule bit of tooth structure to allow for the thickness of the veneer.
An Attractive Smile Increases Your Confidence
Plenty of individuals have chipped or stained teeth. When it comes to a professional setting, appearances, and first impressions are important, and that starts with a smile.
Veneers can create a truly celebrity-caliber smile. That is why they are becoming very popular amongst young professionals especially those who have teeth that have darkened or have a superficial crack or small chip.
If you want to be more self-confident in professional and social settings, make your smile a priority.
