Just like our bodies, our teeth can show signs of age. Years of eating and drinking can cause stains. Our teeth take abuse as we use our teeth to open packages causing a crack or chip, maybe we grind them while we sleep or perhaps, you were in an accident that caused some issues. Whatever the reason, you may not be smiling fully that way you would like. Dental veneers could be the answer to improving the look of your smile and bring back the confidence you once had. With just a few visits, Dr. Durning Moore in Charlotte, NC can work with you to restore your smile.
Refresh Your Existing Smile With Dental Veneers
If you are looking to correct some minor problems with your smile, Dr. Moore can discuss your situation. He will show you how porcelain veneers can improve the look of your smile. Porcelain veneers can whiten teeth, fill in the gaps between teeth, lengthen small teeth, or even straighten crooked teeth. Porcelain veneers can also protect teeth from further damage if they are beginning to show signs of wear.
Many foods, some healthy and some not so healthy, can take a toll on our oral health, especially our teeth. The morning cup of coffee or the evening glass of red wine can cause discoloration in our teeth. Even healthy foods such as fruits can be acidic or high in sugar which can damage tooth enamel. In some cases, teeth can be whitened but some patients prefer to have dental veneers.
Dental veneers are a good option if you have minor issues such as small gaps or minor misaligned teeth. Veneers are placed over the teeth and can be a quicker solution to a minor problem that would otherwise require orthodontics. Veneers are a more affordable option that orthodontics for minor restoration procedures. Your dentist can custom design and fit yours to cover minor issues with your teeth.
Are Dental Veneers Right For Me?
Getting a dental veneer is a less-invasive procedure than dental crowns where the tooth is altered or even removed. Veneers are a covering over your current teeth to restore your smile due to small gaps, stains and minor misalignments. Your dentist will remove a layer of enamel so that the veneer can be attached to the teeth. The end result will be your own smile but enhanced!
While dental veneers are a good option, they may not be the best solution for your problem. In some cases, the underlying issue must first be addressed. For instance, if you grind your teeth at night, the issue would need to be addressed and resolved before veneers could be applied. Also, for some patients that have sensitivity issues, these too would need to be addressed. There are other options if veneers aren’t for you. Learn more about cosmetic dentistry.
