Dental veneers are a very popular choice of cosmetic dentistry procedures. There are many reasons why people choose veneers to help improve the cosmetic appearance of their teeth.
Veneers can be suitable for people with gaps between their teeth, chipped or worn down teeth.
Once the new veneers are attached to your teeth, you will be able to go about your normal daily activities with them in place. You will enjoy the improved appearance that these veneers offer. You will be able to smile again and not feel embarrassed about the appearance of your teeth.
A good dentist will ensure that your veneers are indistinguishable from your other teeth. In order to do this, he will check the shade of your teeth, and in some instances, may put you on a teeth whitening regimen to get your teeth a little brighter in order to match a suitable shade for the veneers. In almost all cases, it's not wise to go for the brightest shade, but something a little more natural, as your natural teeth will likely lose their brightness faster than the veneers will. Therefore, be careful - the brightest shade is often not the most suitable one.
Veneers can be fitted with a local anaesthetic within an hour or two, so it's not such a long procedure. Be aware that the dentist will smooth down the edges of the teeth that the veneer will fit onto. It can be a little disconcerting to realise this, but veneers are a long-lasting solution, and can last ten years or longer if you look after your teeth well. You should brush your veneers just as you brush your regular teeth.
Dental veneers are a great solution for both practical and cosmetic reasons. The end result will leave you with a smile that you will be proud to show off to the world.
