There’s a Lot to Smile About This Year, Especially If You Opt for Veneers

Do you love your smile? According to a survey conducted by The American Academy of Orthodontics, only 33% of adults are happy with their smile. If you’re part of that group, you don’t have to settle for a smile you don’t love. Veneers are a simple solution that can leave you smiling from ear to ear. Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that go on the outward portions of your front teeth.

David Epstein, DDS, and Nikita Vakil, DMD, provide a variety of cosmetic dental services, including veneers, teeth whitening, and clear aligners at The Woodlands Dental Group in The Woodlands, Texas. In this blog, they explain more about veneers and some of their many benefits.

Transform a dull smile into a dazzling one

Veneers offer a host of benefits, including the following:

1. Veneers can brighten your smile

While professional teeth whitening is powerful, it might not be enough to combat intrinsic stains or deep stains caused by medications. Veneers, however, can brighten your smile — even if professional whitening treatments can’t! 

Veneers are usually made of porcelain, and, unlike your natural enamel, veneers are resistant to staining. Furthermore, Dr. Epstein or Dr. Vakil can match the shade of your veneers to your surrounding teeth.

2. Veneers can eliminate the need for orthodontic treatment

While veneers won’t shift your teeth — such as with clear aligners — they can cover small gaps. Veneers can also hide minor imperfections. 

If you’re not sure if your gaps are minor or not, Dr. Epstein or Dr. Vakil can examine your teeth and let you know if veneers would be sufficient or if clear aligners would be the better option.

3. Veneers can hide cracks in your teeth

Do you have a small chip or crack in one of your teeth? Veneers can hide the crack or chip. Not only will this enhance the appearance of your tooth, but it will also strengthen and protect it. If the crack is too large, Dr. Epstein or Dr. Vakil may recommend another option, such as a crown or dental implant

4. You won’t have to worry about veneers falling off 

Even though veneers are thin, they’re strong. Veneers are securely attached to your teeth with dental cement and a light that cures it. 

5. Veneers can change the shape of your teeth

Do you have teeth that are small or misshapen? Veneers can change the appearance of your teeth to bring symmetry and balance to your smile.

There are many ways to improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry. To see if veneers or another service can give you the smile you desire, book an appointment with The Woodlands Dental Group today.
