In today’s constantly moving world, everyone is searching for a quicker, better, easier way to do things. Cosmetic dentistry is no exception. Many people feel like their lives are too busy to undergo lengthy dental treatments and multiple appointments. People who have mild to moderate imperfections in their teeth may opt just to “live with them,” because they aren’t interested in spending years in a solution like braces. At Holistic Dental Centers, we offer our patients the convenience and versatility of dental veneers.
Veneers are a single solution that can address a multitude of problems. They are thin shells of porcelain that mask imperfections and create a new look for the front of your teeth. Veneers are a conservative treatment, requiring very little preparation of the natural tooth. They can be used on a single tooth or multiple teeth to transform your appearance dramatically. Veneers are common as a stand-alone treatment but can also be done in combination with other cosmetic procedures to complete a smile makeover.
Some of the most common uses for dental veneers include:
- Teeth that resist whitening treatment. Teeth whitening treatments are an obvious first choice for a brighter, whiter smile. However, there are certain situations where discoloration and stains are not responsive to the whitening agent. In these situations, dental veneers can provide a natural, Hollywood-white smile.
- Teeth with small alignment issues. While braces are extremely effective in straightening teeth, the treatment often requires several years. For patients who have a few teeth that are moderately misaligned, veneers can create a straight-looking smile.
- Teeth with gaps. When several teeth are treated with porcelain veneers, we are able to close small spaces between the teeth.
- Uneven teeth. Many patients have teeth that are too long or too short. When choosing your veneers, you can pick the size and shape to create an even and proportionate smile.
Whether you are interested in dental veneers or one of our other cosmetic procedures, the team at Holistic Dental Centers can help you improve the appearance of your smile.
