Veneers are thin, shell-like covers for teeth that are worn, chipped, misaligned, or deeply stained. Used primarily on upper teeth, veneers work well for a single tooth or a row of teeth for a “Hollywood” smile.
Veneers restore a tooth’s shape, color, size, and length to give you a flawless, symmetrical smile. Using state-of-the-art CEREC technology at your dentist in Anderson Township, you can even get your veneers the same day.
How do you know if veneers are the right choice for you? Take a look at these reasons veneers might work for you.
You Would Like to Improve Your Smile
Crooked or gapped teeth, stained teeth that won’t respond to teeth whitening, chipped teeth - these are all aesthetic problems that veneers can fix. If you’re self-conscious about your smile and your teeth are otherwise healthy, veneers can renew your teeth to create a bright, white, knockout smile.
You Already Have Healthy Teeth and Gums
Dentists use veneers to cosmetically fix the appearance of teeth. While veneers may add strength to a weakened tooth, this restoration method is best for people without existing tooth decay or gum disease. You can still get tooth decay and gum disease while wearing veneers, so it’s best to start with healthy teeth.
You Have Good Dental Hygiene
Made of porcelain or resin composite material, your trusted dentist in Anderson Township bonds the veneer to the fronts of your teeth for a flawless look. You’ll need to continue brushing and flossing two to three times per day, as decay and gum disease can still occur with veneers. While veneers are stain resistant and durable, they can be weakened by repetitive wear. If you clench or grind your teeth or bite your fingernails, you may not be a good candidate for veneers.
