Many people these days are looking to improve their smile. At the same time, they are also looking for solutions that don’t require an invasive, extensive procedure. If you have minor imperfections in your teeth that you want to fix, Tim Perry, DDS may be able to help with veneers.
Veneers are Minimally Invasive
Many times, people avoid cosmetic dental treatments because they think that the procedures are going to be very involved and very invasive. This simply is not the case. Veneers are very minimally invasive. To place them, we only need to remove just a few millimeters from the front surfaces of the teeth where they will be applied.
Veneers are Versatile
No one flaw affects the appearance of your teeth. There are many cosmetic issues that can impact your smile. Using veneers, we can address several different types of these issues. Veneers can cover over minor chips and cracks, give you a straighter smile without braces or clear aligners, and even completely change the size or shape of teeth. They can also eliminate discoloration, giving you a whiter smile when your teeth will not respond to the typical whitening treatments.
Results are Immediate
Whatever issues you are looking to address, veneers provide you with instant results. The process only takes two appointments. Once the veneers have been bonded to your teeth, your smile is instantly transformed. You do not have to worry about undergoing any lengthy treatments to achieve the desired results.
Stain Resistance for Lasting Results
Stains can happen for many reasons. Common causes include the things you eat and drink, smoking cigarettes, and simply getting older. Not only are veneers able to eliminate the appearance of stains and discoloration, veneers made from porcelain can resist the development of new stains. The issues that typically cause stains to develop do not have the same effect on porcelain that they do on your natural teeth. As a result, you can enjoy a beautiful white smile without fear of worrying about new stains developing.
Keep in mind that even though porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, they are not stain-proof. This means that you should still take good care of them to keep them clean. Taking good care of your veneers is also important for maintaining your oral health.
Veneers, particularly those made from porcelain, are fairly durable. They can withstand most normal biting, which means that you can still eat and enjoy your favorite foods. When you take good care of your veneers, they can last 10 to 25 years, if not longer.
Compatible with Other Treatments
If there are other issues affecting your smile, a smile makeover may be recommended. This is a customized treatment that allows us to determine the best treatments to improve your smile. Veneers can be a part of a smile makeover and can be used in conjunction with other dental and gum treatments for the best possible results.
Veneers provide many incredible benefits and only require a minimally invasive procedure to place them. For more information, call Tim Perry, DDS at (318) 322-0576 today.
