Get A Smile Fit For Spring
March 20th was the official first day of spring and as we ease into the warmer weather, people love to get out and about. A lot more activities ensue and inevitably that means more photos of momentous occasions will be snapped. Some people may be afraid to have their picture taken or shy away from showing their full smile due to the embarrassment of having yellow, chipped, or misshapen teeth. Our dentist can help in situations such as these. Perhaps, porcelain veneers are your perfect answer.
What are porcelain veneers?
They are thin, tooth colored pieces cemented over the front of your damaged teeth. They can be shaped and colored whiter than your current tooth color to give a brighter, more perfect appearance.
When should you consider getting veneers?
If you have any of the following dental imperfections, then veneers may be right for you:
- Minor chips or cracks
- Worn down teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Abnormally short teeth
- Overly large teeth
The process to fix all of these issues would start with a dentist visit to prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of enamel from the teeth undergoing treatment to allow room for the veneers to fit. Some teeth, such as larger ones, may need to be gently filed down to an average length. The next step involves getting impressions of the teeth so that your veneers can be crafted for a perfect fit. In a short time, you will then be equipped with a beautiful smile fit for spring!
The best part? Porcelain veneers are known to be durable with proper care and they can last several years.
