Straight Talk on Dental Veneers

[schema type=”review” url=”” name=”Dental veneers” description=”Review of and information on the benefits of dental veneers.” rev_name=”Dental veneers” author=”Robert Gazzola” pubdate=”2014-03-21″ ]Are you afraid to smile in public or in other social occasions? Is it because your teeth are chipped, broken or misaligned? Worn tooth enamel stained or discolored with age may be one reason that you are reluctant to smile in the company of other people. Other dental problems including uneven teeth or abnormal tooth spacing may be the real reason for your lack of self-confidence or embarrassment in social situations. Fear of smiling is a problem that may be easily resolved with dental veneers.

The most efficient way to achieve the desired dental results is to communicate how the cosmetic dentist can help you restore a friendly smile with dental veneers during the initial dental consultation. Two other dental visits are required to make and apply the selected dental veneers.

A smile analysis performed by a cosmetic dentist will determine the proper procedure that will help you to increase self-confidence and dispel any fears you might have about smiling in public. During the dental appointment, the dentist will create a diagnostic mock-up of possible veneer choices. These will help you to determine which dental procedure is the best solution for you. Cosmetic imaging is another way to “try on” dental veneers by viewing a picture of your new smile and dental appearance.

Dental veneers are made of either porcelain or composite resin placed over the facial surfaces of teeth to improve the facial appearance of a patient. Porcelain dental veneers resolve dental problems that include dullness, discoloration, cracking, wear, extensive chipping or uneven teeth. Direct composite veneers are an inexpensive and effective solution that will correct dental problems such as small chips, cracks and teeth discoloration.

Included among the many benefits of this form of cosmetic dentistry are the creation of bright, confident white smiles that display symmetrically aligned and shapely teeth. Dental veneers protect the surface of damaged teeth, are durable and the removal of tooth structure is minimized.
