Are you ashamed of your smile? Do you get embarrassed when you laugh, speak, or eat, because you don’t want anyone to notice your teeth? Often times it’s just a small cosmetic flaw that’s keeping you from having the smile of your dreams. Maybe your teeth are discolored, cracked, or have an embarrassing gap between them.
We can help! At Advanced Dental Associates in San Antonio, TX, we’ve helped countless patients transform their smile with veneers. In today’s post we’re going to look at the different types of veneers on the market, and the problems veneers can fix. Then we’ll give you seven excellent reasons to choose veneers for your smile!
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are one of the fastest and highest-quality cosmetic dentistry procedures available today. A thin facing of tooth-colored ceramic material is bonded to the outside of your teeth to change their appearance.
A single veneer can be placed to correct a minor problem, then seamlessly matched to the appearance of your natural teeth. Or a full-set of veneers can be placed to completely change your appearance.
We offer three types of veneers: IPS e.max veneers, porcelain veneers, and minimal prep veneers. IPS e.max veneers are the gold standard of veneers, constructed out of lithium disilicate. This glass, ceramic material is a perfect match for the appearance of your natural teeth. IPS e.max veneers are also more flexible than traditional veneers, make them less likely to be damaged.
Porcelain veneers are one of our most popular options. Porcelain is a durable but lifelike material which can give you an amazing new smile. Porcelain veneers are also more affordable than IPS e.max veneers.
Minimal prep veneers won’t require any enamel to be removed from your teeth, which allows them to be applied faster than porcelain veneers. Minimal prep veneers are durable, but removable, making them a reversible cosmetic dentistry option.
What Problems Can Veneers Fix?
Discolored or Stained Teeth. Certain medical conditions and medications can cause your teeth to become deeply stained or discolored. Your teeth may even be resistant to professional teeth whitening. A full set of veneers can be applied to give you a beautiful, white smile.
Cracked or Chipped Teeth. Small chips and cracks in your teeth can stick out like a sore thumb in your smile. We can apply a single veneer to cover your damaged tooth, and it will blend perfectly with the rest of your smile.
Misshapen Teeth. There are invasive ways to reshape a tooth. You could have the tooth grinded into shape, or significant portions of it removed. Or you could choose to cover it with a veneer!
Crooked and Gapped Teeth. Braces aren’t the only solution for minor orthodontic problems. Veneers can also be used to cover orthodontic issues like gapped teeth or crooked teeth, in a fraction of the time it would take braces to repair the issue.
Seven Reasons to Choose Veneers
Reason #1: Veneers Can Make You Look Younger
Patients tell us that their veneers not only make them feel more self-confident, they actually make them look younger as well! As you age, your smile is one of the first things which begins to suffer in appearance. Sometimes your teeth lose their whiteness, crack, or drift apart. Veneers can erase years off your smile!
Reason #2: Veneers Are A Comfortable Procedure
Veneers are a minimally invasive procedure. Generally a very small layer of your enamel has to be removed to make room for your veneers. But that’s it! You don’t have to worry about drills or uncomfortable orthodontic devices making your mouth uncomfortable.
Reason #3: Veneers Aren’t Just For Celebrities
Many celebrities choose veneers to help them get that Hollywood smile. If they trust veneers to make them look great, then why shouldn’t you? We offer three types of veneers, so you can pick the ones that are right for your smile and budget.
Reason #4: Veneers Are A Smart Choice
Veneers are completely customizable. Want to totally change your appearance? Veneers can do that. Want a permanently whiter smile? Veneers can do that. Even if you’re unsure about veneers, our minimal prep veneers may be a great option for you. Because your teeth stay intact, the veneers can always be removed.
Reason #5: Veneers Can Keep You From Feeling Ashamed About Your Smile
When was the last time you proudly displayed your smile? If it’s been far too long, veneers can fix the problems which are keeping you from smiling. You can have a whiter smile, free of unsightly cracks, chips, or cracks. A set of veneers is a great way to start feeling good about your smile.
Reason #6: Veneers Can Save You From Braces
Do you have a gap between two of your teeth that’s driving you crazy? You could spend two years in braces OR you could choose veneers. Veneers are effective at covering many different orthodontic issues including gaps between teeth and crooked teeth.
Reason #7: Veneers Can Be Applied Quickly
Most of the time, veneers only take two appointments to apply. During your first appointment, we’ll prepare your teeth for the veneers and take measurements for the veneers. Then during your second appointment, we’ll apply the veneers to your teeth. Veneers bond to your teeth quickly, and there’s no recovery time. You simply walk-out of our office with a brand-new smile!
