Dental veneers are an excellent choice for patients who want to transform their smile but have
numerous issues that need to be corrected, such as deeply stained teeth, chipped or cracked
teeth, or excessive tooth wear.
Veneers are essentially a very thin layer of durable porcelain that’s placed over your natural
smile with minimal preparation. Although veneers are considered a permanent form of
treatment, they have many benefits. What are some of the benefits of dental veneers?
Get a Whole New Smile
Instead of having numerous treatments to restore your teeth, dental veneers provide a whole
new layer to your smile. Veneers can correct uneven teeth and even crooked teeth to make
them smooth and uniform. Veneers can dramatically transform chipped or gapped teeth or
even shorter teeth, giving them a new appearance in just one to two weeks for dramatic
For patients who want a new smile in a short period of time with minimal preparation work,
veneers may be a good choice. You can talk with your dentist about whether or not your
concerns about your smile would improve with dental veneers.
Get Rid of Stains
If teeth are deeply stained and don’t respond to a traditional cleaning or even professional
whitening treatments, it may be time to consider veneers. Veneers can make yellow or stained
teeth whiter and younger looking. It can make thin or translucent teeth thick and strong.
The best part about dental veneers is that the veneers themselves are very resistant to stains,
so you won’t need BriteSmile, Zoom, Crest Whitening Strips, or any other chemicals to whiten
your teeth after the treatment. Instead, you can just enjoy your beautiful new veneers!
Improve tooth Sensitivity
For people who have experienced enamel damage and have very sensitive teeth, dental
veneers can actually help stop tooth sensitivity from worsening and, in fact, can even improve
existing tooth sensitivity by adding a new layer onto teeth and shielding your natural teeth from
hot and cold temperatures.
Many patients who receive dental veneers appreciate that their teeth are less sensitive after
the treatment. In fact, some dentists use a desensitizing treatment before bonding porcelain
veneers to your teeth to help enhance the protection from extreme temperatures you’ll
experience with dental veneers.
For patients that qualify, dental veneers make a dramatic transformation and give many
patients the smile of their dreams without whitening treatments, orthodontic work, or tooth
bonding. If you have several issues you’d like addressed with your smile, you can ask your oral
healthcare professional if dental veneers could be for you!
