Our teeth can start to show signs of wear and tear as we age. These cracks, gaps, chips, discoloration, and misalignments can be embarrassing and make us feel self-conscious about our smile. You may look at your smile in the mirror and be overwhelmed by all the different issues you see there. Maybe you’re dreading all the different dental procedures that you think you’ll need to have to smile confidently again.
Dental veneers might be the simple, relatively affordable cosmetic procedure you need to correct all these problems in just a few office visits.
Refresh Your Existing Smile With Dental Veneers
With porcelain dental veneers, Nashua, NH dental provider Levesque Family Dentistry can refresh and enhance your smile by correcting the color, shape, and spacing of your teeth. Dental veneers can lengthen small or misshapen teeth, whiten stained teeth or close up too-wide gaps between teeth. Are your teeth chipped or showing signs of wear? Porcelain veneers cover the imperfections, protecting your teeth from further damage while also restoring their appearance in a way that looks and feels natural.
It has been said that digestion begins in the mouth. In this case everything we eat affects our teeth, some foods and drinks more than others. Eating foods that are acidic or contain dyes can damage enamel, resulting in its’ discoloration. Some patients with discoloration may consider having their teeth professionally whitened, but if you have multiple issues that need to be corrected, porcelain dental veneers may be for you.
For minor gaps between teeth, or a few misaligned teeth, dental veneers could be a faster and more affordable solution than orthodontic treatment. Porcelain veneers are custom-made for each patient’s mouth and placed over your existing teeth, so your Levesque Family Dentistry provider can design yours to cover any minor misalignment, gaps, or cracks.
Are Dental Veneers Right For Me?
The veneers are placed by your dentist after he or she removes the outermost layer of enamel in order to fit the veneers into your mouth without affecting its’ shape or how you speak. With dental veneers the teeth in your smile will still be your own but covered with a layer that protects them as it restores their appearance. This results in an enhanced version of your smile!
There are some patients for whom porcelain veneers may not be an option at this time. Individuals who suffer from bruxism (habitual grinding of teeth) will want to conquer this issue first before veneers are installed. The preparation of the enamel before veneers can be attached can be difficult for patients with very sensitive teeth.
Fortunately, once these problems are treated, most patients are able to benefit from veneers or are able to consider other cosmetic options provided by Levesque Family Dentistry despite these issues.
