Are Dental Veneers for You?
- Posted on: Feb 15 2019
If there’s one thing that we as Americans love, it’s one stop shopping. With supercenters just around every corner, they make it easy for you to buy everything in one location so that you can get hoe and spend more time doing the things that you love like hanging out with family and friends. Similar to one stop shopping, wouldn’t it be nice if you could take care of all of your dental issues with just one solution? Depending on the oral conditions that you are facing, dental veneers maybe the one solution that you’ve been looking for. Let’s take a closer look at what dental veneers can help with.
Having chipped teeth is a big problem; especially if the chip is really large. The last thing that you want to do when you have a chipped tooth is just leave it. Why? Because germs and bacteria can enter inside of it and lead to an infection, or the chip may get even worse. By sanding own your chipped teeth and then placing dental veneers over the top, it can get rid of the problems so that you don’t have to worry about them later on.
Another thing that dental veneers can help with are crooked teeth or at least the appearance of them. Although braces and Invisalign will actually straighten your teeth, dental veneers can be placed over your front teeth in a way that creates the appearance of straight teeth.
Having yellow teeth because you drink a lot of coffee can usually be corrected with in-office or at home whitening solutions. However, if you have stained teeth due to medications like tetracycline, then you may not be quite as lucky. When we are choosing your dental veneers, we can choose ones that are a brighter white so it looks like you have whiter teeth.
You may think that you are stuck with the size of teeth that you are born with but veneers can change the size of teeth that you have to make them smaller or larger. During your initial consultation, we will show you different sizes of veneers and help you find the right size for your mouth.
It’s nice to have a one size fits all kind of method for your teeth. If you want to learn a little bit more about veneers, schedule an appointment with us and call us at our Tampa office at 813-922-3093.
