When it comes to our appearance, sometimes it doesn’t take much to feel embarrassed. You might get to work in the morning, only to realize you have a huge coffee stain on your tie. You’re in the restroom washing your hands, and you notice that you have an enormous piece of dark green lettuce resting snugly in between your two front teeth. And it was left behind from your lunch … two hours before! How mortifying!
Things like this happen to everyone, but the good news is that they’re temporary, and by the next day, they’re usually forgotten. But what about the embarrassing things about our appearance that aren’t temporary? What about the flaws that can’t be fixed by a quick change of your tie or by giving your mouth a quick rinse of water after lunch?
That’s where dental veneers can help. At Rod Gleave, DMD, we offer a variety of veneers that will beautify and restore your smile according to your needs, goals, and budget. You’ll finally have the confidence only a bright, beautiful smile can bring.
Veneers: What Are They?
A dental veneer is a wafer-thin but durable shell covering that hides the imperfections on a tooth in a natural-looking way. It not only hides flaws, but because it’s bonded to your natural tooth, it protects your tooth from any further potential damage like a shield.
While a veneer can be customized to match the rest of your natural teeth, a full set of dental veneers are like an instant professional teeth whitening that will resist stains for a whiter, brighter smile that lasts for years.
Veneers Can Fix All Sorts Of Dental Problems!
You’d be amazed at what this one cosmetic wonder can fix. Dental veneers can be used to correct:
-Discolored or stained teeth caused by things like dark drinks, aging, genetics, or certain medications
-Gapped, misshapen, or crooked teeth
-Chipped or cracked teeth from accidents, injuries, or just years of wear and tear
5 Reasons To Love Veneers!
- Veneers Are A Versatile Solution
Since you probably already gathered from our list above, you can see how veneers are so versatile. It’s actually a multi-purpose treatment option because it’s restorative and cosmetic in nature. It bonds to your teeth, corrects damage, protects teeth from then on, and can be shaped and polished to look like a completely transformed, beautiful smile that can last many years.
- Veneers Can Improve Your Life
We’re not being overly dramatic here! Veneers can improve the quality of your life in many ways. First, veneers can take years off of your appearance. As you age, your teeth will inevitably show it. They may become weak, they may shift, and they may become discolored. Second, they can correct all sorts of minor problems like chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth, so in the end, you have a more symmetrical, aesthetically pleasing smile. All of these improvements will mean a huge boost to your self-confidence. You won’t just look like a million bucks, but you’ll feel like it, too!
- Veneers Can Be Easy And Comfortable
With various types of veneers, you have varying methods for application. But in general, veneers can be incredibly easy and comfortable to apply. They’re minimally invasive, only requiring a small amount of your tooth enamel to be removed in order to give the bonding resin more staying power and to allow your veneers to fit more naturally in your mouth. Also, since your tooth enamel contains no nerve endings, you’re talking about a virtually pain-free type of procedure.
- Veneers Can Make You Look Like A Star
Just because veneers can make you look like a Hollywood celebrity doesn’t mean you have to have the money of a Hollywood celebrity! At Rod Gleave, DMD, you have several options to choose from, and we are more than happy to work with you to come up with a treatment plan that works comfortably within your goals and budget.
- Veneers Are Instant Orthodontics
Among their many awesome qualities, veneers are like immediate orthodontics. In much the same way that they can cover the imperfections from damage or wear and tear, they can also correct flaws that’ve always been there. So if your teeth are crooked or if there’s a gap between your two front teeth, for example, veneers can be applied and shaped to look like you wore braces for years, when you really only spent a little bit of time in your dentist’s chair!
