Is It a Good Time for Veneers?

Is It a Good Time for Veneers?If you are feeling unhappy about your smile, you might be looking into ways to get the results you are looking for. Turning to dental veneers has helped a vast number of people achieve a mouth they can feel confident about. Today we will be explaining what dental veneers can do for you.

A Smile To Love

Dental veneers are like make-up for your teeth. They are a thin layer of porcelain that is meant to go on top of your natural teeth to improve the appearance. They are in the shape of teeth and are usually bright white - the desired look for teeth. Unlike dentures, veneers are for aesthetic purposes almost exclusively and are a relatively quick way to achieve a mouth that would be considered stunning by many.

If you simply have teeth that are a bit "crooked" or have gaps you don't want, veneers provide instantaneous results compared to braces which require nearly a year of usage to achieve the desired effect. And as mentioned above, they give you the appearance of bright white teeth. So while they may not fix the teeth themselves, for people whose teeth are functioning, but aren't happy with their appearance, veneers are an excellent choice.

It is important to remember, however, that you still need to practice good dental hygiene for your natural teeth. Veneers don't eliminate problems caused by forgoing healthy brushing and flossing habits. This is a trap that can easily be fallen into since it becomes easier to not have to worry about your natural teeth becoming yellower by allowing stains and plaque to build - but you still have cavities, gum disease, and tooth decay to worry about!
