In the world of cosmetic dental treatments, there are many new procedures these days as well as procedures that have been around for many years. In the cases of these older treatments, all have been updated to reflect the changing desires of patients and the changing landscape of research, safety and efficacy. One great option that you may have heard of to improve the look of your teeth is veneers. However, if you do not know much about this treatment, you may be unsure as to whether or not it is right for you. Let Dr. Wendy Willoughby, DDS and her team tell you all about the basics of this popular treatment so you can make a thoroughly informed decision for yourself.
What are They?
Veneers are usually made of very thin pieces of porcelain that are fixed to the front of your teeth. They can last a long time if cared for well and can cover one problematic tooth or several teeth in the front of your mouth. Because they are color-matched and individually shaped to your teeth, they look incredibly natural.
How Can They Help You?
This treatment is particularly helpful if you are embarrassed by your teeth. They can cover up stains as well as a variety of imperfections, including small chips or cracks in the teeth that are not so bad as to require a filling. Plus, veneers can get rid of the look of minor misalignments and gaps between your teeth. You may use them as a whitening or perfecting treatment. They are incredibly strong and long-lasting and are perfect additions to your everyday life.
