When you were growing up, did you have a friend who just seemed to be good at everything? In cosmetic dentistry, dental veneers are kind of like that friend.
Veneers can help with almost anything that you want done to create your dream smile. If you would like to see how different your smile could look with veneers, then you should schedule a visit to our dentist office in San Antonio, TX.
At Advanced Dental Associates, we have used veneers to address a number of issues to change smiles from ones that patients hide to ones they want in the spotlight.
Veneers Vs. Teeth Whitening
As Americans, we want to look and feel our best. It’s why we wear clothes that we like. It’s why we get our hair styled certain ways.
It’s why we want our teeth to be as clean and white as possible. That’s why you can find so many different teeth whitening products on store shelves across the country. (How effective those commercial products are is another story for another day.)
We offer professional teeth whitening at our office. This is a fast, effective way to remove deep stains from your teeth. But as great as teeth whitening is, it can’t remove other kinds of tooth discoloration.
Teeth also can change color as a result of worn down enamel, injuries, illness, or reactions to medication.
Veneers can make your teeth look whiter and brighter no matter the reason for your discoloration. Veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth. The act as a kind of cover or shell that hides your teeth so people see the smile that you want them to see instead.
And veneers are stain-resistant, which means they are more likely to stay whiter for a long time with proper care and maintenance.
Our dentists can explain the differences between teeth whitening and veneers more in depth if you schedule a consultation at our office. We want to help you pick the right cosmetic service for you.
Veneers Vs. Teeth Bonding
People are hard on their teeth.
In the course of our everyday lives, we use our teeth for their intended purpose of biting and chewing foods. Some foods are harder than others, and eating too many of those foods can wear down our teeth with time.
Some of us add to those problems by using our teeth to open packages or by biting our fingernails. And that’s to say nothing of the countless ways we could chip off parts of our teeth.
One way to repair small chips and worn down teeth is with teeth bonding. This involves applying a composite resin to your teeth. The resin can be layered to restore the shape and size of your teeth. This resin is made to match the color of teeth, and when it hardens, it looks like a natural part of your smile.
If you have one or two chipped or worn teeth, teeth bonding can provide an efficient way to fix them.
If you have several teeth that have lost a little something over the years, then dental veneers may be a better option. Veneers can be applied to the front of your teeth to restore the appearance of undamaged teeth once again.
Call 210-819-5233 if you want to find out if teeth bonding or veneers is a better option for rebuilding your smile.
Veneers Vs. Orthodontics
It’s extremely rare for people to have naturally perfect teeth.
Some people have teeth that are crooked. Some people have teeth that are crowded. Some people have gaps between their teeth.
One way to fix those issues is with orthodontic care. You can wear brackets and wires on your teeth for years to push and pull your teeth into the positions you want them to be.
Or, you could change the appearance of your teeth in a matter of weeks with our dental veneers.
Veneers are custom-made for each patient. When they are bonded in place, your teeth can look perfectly straight. Your veneers will hide the gaps between your teeth as well as any teeth that look like the are fighting for the same space.
At Advanced Dental Associates, we can show you how quickly veneers can transform your smile.
