Can You Benefit From Dental Veneers?

If you're struggling with crooked teeth or continued discoloration, you may think that there's absolutely no hope for enhancing the look of your smile. In reality, gaining a smile that you're proud of is as easy as talking with Dr. Anisa Maredia about ceramic veneers. There are many different benefits you can gain from having these veneers installed, which include:

  • A whiter smile
  • Remedy misshapen or cracked teeth
  • Stop pain from current enamel erosion
  • More self-confidence

What Exactly Are Ceramic Dental Veneers?

Ceramic veneers are constructed out of sheets of medical-grade ceramic that are specifically cut to create a more uniform look for your teeth. Veneers are very thin shells that are adhered to the front of your existing teeth. Once bonded to your teeth, veneers become a permanent improvement to your overall smile. Apart from having a more uniform-looking smile, your new veneers will have a bright white appearance that can enhance your self-confidence and have you loving your new smile.

The Two Types of Dental Veneers

Dr. Maredia currently offers two types of ceramic veneers, which include prepped and non-prepped. The type of veneers that she'll apply to your smile will highly depend on its individual attributes. Prepped veneers are highly recommended for patients who are simply looking to brighten their smile and not change its shape. These are the easiest veneers to have installed and will take the least amount of time.

Prepped veneers, on the other hand, will take longer to install as they require a more involved procedure. This second type of veneer is recommended for patients who are looking to enhance the overall shape of their smile, like fixing a crooked tooth or two. When Dr. Maredia is installing prepped veneers, she will need to shave a small amount of enamel from the teeth to remedy any imperfections before permanently bonding the veneers.

One vs. Eight Dental Veneers

While most patients will commonly have all eight dental veneers installed on their upper jaw to enhance the overall look of their smile, it's not always necessary. If you have a chipped, misshapen, or severely discolored tooth, you can benefit from just having one dental veneer installed over the tooth in question.

Since veneers are considered a permanent treatment for your teeth, it's important that you discuss your intentions with Dr. Maredia to ensure that you're getting the right dental solution to fit your desires.

Having veneers installed can greatly help to enhance your confidence and have you proud to call your smile your own. Be sure to contact M Dental at Aliana to schedule your veneer consultation with Dr. Maredia today!
