What does your smile look like? Do you like what you see when you smile in the mirror? Do you see a perfect set of teeth? If you are like most people, it is not a perfect smile that you see in the mirror. Many of the flaws that you see in your smile can be corrected. If you have chipped or cracked teeth, you might think that you need to live with them, but that is not the case. Here at Taglia Advanced Dentistry, we have helped others to have smiles that they like to see when they look in the mirror. Veneers are one of the possibilities.
Will Veneers Work for You?
Many people now love their smiles because of veneers. Here is what you need to know about them. Veneers are thin sheets of usually porcelain or composite resin that are placed on the front of a tooth or teeth. They just cover the front; the rest of the tooth remains the same. They are made to blend in with your teeth; they will not stand out.
Veneers are a great option for someone who has a chip or cracks in their teeth. The veneer will cover over the imperfection, and no one will know that it is there.
There are other problems that veneers can cover that have nothing to do with a chip or a crack. If you have a tooth that is too small, a veneer could be the answer. If the enamel on your teeth is worn, we might recommend veneers on all of your teeth. Veneers can also help you to have even teeth. Another thing that veneers are sometimes used for is to whiten teeth. With traditional teeth whitening, a solution that is a combination of bleach and peroxide is used. Not everyone should use that solution. With veneers, your teeth will all be white, and you will not have bleached your teeth to get that result.
Your veneers will be strong, but that does not mean that you do not need to be careful. You can eat or drink the way that you are used to, but be smart. You should also not chew ice with veneers, or bite your fingernails. Be careful if you eat hard candy.
