If you’ve every looked enviously at a friend or co-worker’s teeth and wished you could have been born with their perfect smile, they might have a secret, and we’re going to tell. It’s time to quit believing that gaps, chips, discoloration or other imperfections are simply your teeth, and you have to live with them. You can have enviable teeth, and your dentist is the key.
You don’t have to hide your smile any longer, thanks to dental veneers
A veneer is ultra-thin porcelain, placed on top of your teeth, to help correct problems with your smile. You may have crooked, misshapen teeth that you were born with, or you may have cracks and chips from an injury. No matter the reason, veneers and your dentist can provide the answer.
Veneers by Advanced Dental Arts can provide an effective solution
Our patients say they appreciate the natural appearance that their veneers have given them. And they can give you a natural, attractive smile. Here’s how the procedure works:
Thin, custom-made shells are fabricated and placed over the front side of your teeth in order to improve:
- Spacing issues
- Dull, dark or yellow color
- Discoloration from staining
Preparing your teeth for veneers
Prior to placement:
The dentist will create a model of your teeth, used to build the veneers. A small amount of tooth material will be removed so that the veneer can be attached and sit naturally on your teeth.
Taking care of your veneers
Veneers allow your teeth to look like natural teeth, only better, and they can last up to 10 years and beyond. To help maintain the bright appearance of your veneers, we recommend you avoid coffee, tea, red wine and tobacco. They are also strong enough to function like natural teeth. Veneers don’t require special care – give them the same, consistent attention that your teeth always deserve:
- Brush twice a day for at least two minutes with fluoride toothpaste
- Floss at least once a day
- See your dentist regularly
