Having a flawless smile can make anyone feel better about themselves, especially if you're the type of person to enjoy taking and posting pictures of yourself. While most dental procedures for fixing teeth abnormalities can take long amounts of time and money, that doesn't mean that you have to go through this process in order to correct the look of your smile. Dental veneers can dramatically change the look of your smile in a short period of time without extensive dental work. Here are three ways dental veneers can improve your smile.
Having white teeth is one of the most desired things people want for their own smiles. It makes teeth look perfect on camera and allows for a wide variety of makeup styles without accidentally accentuating yellow or brown tones of stained teeth. However, whitening teeth can be dangerous depending on the method used, and the process is only temporary.
Dental veneers can immediately change the color of your teeth by sitting directly in front of your teeth. Dental veneers come in a wide range of colors, from very subtle and natural white to bright and vivid white, like you would expect from teeth whitening. Best of all, dental veneers save you from the trouble of putting your gums and teeth at risk of damage by repeatedly bleaching or whitening them.
Having jagged-looking teeth is fairly common, as wear and tear from eating and biting can cause this cosmetic damage over the years. If your teeth aren't damaged enough to need crowns or fillings, veneers are a fantastic choice for correcting this flawed appearance.
Veneers take on the appearance of your teeth themselves, sitting in front of the jagged teeth and hiding them from view. Veneers are shaped like healthy, even teeth, which will completely obscure the fact that your teeth are jagged or have rough edges.
Lastly, dental veneers can be used to improve the overall balance of your teeth size. People like having symmetrical teeth, but it isn't entirely uncommon for natural teeth to not match those dimensions. Maybe your upper teeth are a bit small, or some teeth are larger than others. In any case, veneers can help.
When you talk to a cosmetic dentist, the two of you will pick veneers that are the exact size and shape that you want. You can match existing teeth in your mouth, or start fresh, covering all of your front teeth and creating a seamless, even appearance between them. In either case, you will drastically improve the look of your smile.
Dental veneers are a great way of correcting three of the most common cosmetic problems with teeth and smiles, and there are other cosmetic dentistry procedures that could help as well. Talk with your dentist to learn more.
