Just because the days are getting shorter, it doesn’t mean you need to shine any less. In fact, entering a new season is a perfect time to reevaluate and make changes that could enhance your quality of life. Few things can have a bigger impact on your confidence or your happiness as your smile, making cosmetic dentistry one of the greatest investments you can make for yourself. By correcting concerns or flaws that may have haunted you for years, porcelain veneers, in particular, can quickly help give you a dazzling smile, one with which to enter fall and after that, a whole new wonderful year.
How Veneers Are Made to Enhance Your Smile
Modern veneers are much more customized than the ones you may have seen in past decades that were often overly white, unnaturally bright and often abnormally large. Now cosmetic dentists work hard, often alongside ceramicists, to provide patients with entirely customized veneers, which help to enhance each smile’s natural beauty, not distract from it.
From the shading to the contouring, and even the sheen, veneers can be made to closely match your existing teeth, while still making them appear more uniform and symmetrical. And, because modern veneers can be made incredibly thin, very little preparation must be done to your natural teeth, meaning you don’t have to worry about drastically damaging your enamel in order to have cosmetic treatment completed.
When Veneers Are the Best Choice
Veneers might be the ideal treatment for you if you’re insecure because of any of the following:
- Disproportionally small teeth
- Overly sharp or otherwise misshapen teeth
- Jagged or noticeably worn edges due to general wear or possibly bruxism (nighttime teeth grinding)
- Deep stains, especially those originating within the teeth, as these cannot be addressed through professional whitening
- Minor gaps between the teeth or other purely cosmetic alignment issues
