What would you be willing to do for a perfect smile?
The answer may depend on your age. It may depend on your career, and it may depend on your options.
If you a teenager in the middle of studying for tests and writing papers, you probably have lots of friends who are undergoing orthodontic care.
If you an adult who is starting your career or an adult who has worked your way up the ranks, then you may be less willing to walk around wearing braces for a couple years. That may not send the professional image you want to portray.
In that case, you could consider getting veneers, which are one of the best services available in cosmetic dentistry. If you live in San Antonio, TX, then you are close enough to talk to the dentists at Advanced Dental Associates about whether veneers can work for you.
Why You May Want To Change Your Smile
Cosmetic dentistry is part of any modern dental practice. We want your teeth to be healthy, and we want your teeth to look their best.
Only you know what you would like to change about your teeth. No matter what your issue(s) may be, we are confident that we can help. For many patients, veneers are a fast, effective means to get the smiles that they want to see. Veneers could help you, too.
To find out, schedule a consultation at our office to discuss which of our veneers could be right for you.
Before we discuss the different types of veneers that we offer, let’s consider some of the problems that veneers can be used to fix.
- You have crooked teeth.
Crooked teeth can be a distraction. They can affect how other people perceive and treat you, too. It may not be fair, but people with straight teeth are considered more successful, healthier, and happier, according to a survey conducted by Kelton Research.
- You have crowded teeth.
Crowding can contribute to misalignment problems. These problems can arise as your adult teeth are erupting. They can occur when you wisdom teeth emerge, too, especially if your wisdom teeth are impacted.
- You have gaps between your teeth.
The scientific term for this is diastema. Some people are self-conscious about the uneven spacing between two or more of their teeth.
- You have yellow or discolored teeth.
Our teeth naturally become yellower as we age. The things that we eat and the things that we drink can change the color of our smiles.
In other cases, illness or the medication you took for an illness can cause your teeth to turn darker.
- You have worn down, chipped, or broken teeth.
Injuries and accidents may have resulted in you losing part of one or more teeth. Bad habits, such as nail biting or opening things with your teeth can cause them to become worn down.
- You have a combination of problems.
It’s not uncommon for people to have multiple issues with their teeth, and, therefore, their smiles.
No matter what your issues are, veneers could be the fastest way to change your smile.
Feel Confident About Your Teeth
If you are already self-conscious about your teeth, you may not feel comfortable wearing metal wires and braces for two years or more to straighten out your pearly whites.
On the other hand, veneers can be used to straighten your teeth in a matter of weeks. You won’t have to wear any special appliances, and your smile will still look natural.
We offer porcelain, IPS e.max, and minimal preparation veneers at our dentist office, located in San Antonio.
With traditional porcelain veneers, we may need to remove some of the enamel from the front of your teeth before we take the impression for your veneers. This way the veneers will be made to fit your teeth without changing your profile.
IPS e.max veneers are made of lithium disilicate glass ceramic. This is one of the most advanced materials used in veneers. It is lifelike and more durable than many other types of veneers.
For patients who are concerned about removing part of their teeth, we also offer minimal or no-prep veneers. These are made of a thinner material, so they can often be applied directly to your teeth as they are now.
