When your teeth have cosmetic flaws that make you self-conscious about the way you look, dental veneers can provide a great solution. These veneers cover your teeth with porcelain in order to even out their appearance, hide cosmetic flaws and close up gaps or uneven spaces. When you come to Spartan Dental for dental veneers, you can expect to enjoy the following advantages of this type of treatment.
Dental Veneers Have Many Uses
Dental veneers can be used to improve the appearance of teeth that are affected by a wide range of cosmetic issues. Whether you have severely discolored teeth, chipped teeth, crooked teeth or noticeable gaps between your teeth, veneers provide you with a way to hide or correct these flaws.
Dental Veneers Look Natural
When you have dental veneers applied to your teeth, other people shouldn’t be able to tell that you have them. Porcelain dental veneers have a natural appearance that blends in with your other teeth. In fact, our dentist at Spartan Dental in Cranston makes impressions of your affected teeth to ensure that your veneers look as much like your natural teeth as possible. This provides you with a more uniform appearance that can significantly improve your smile.
Dental Veneers Only Require Minimal Trimming
Before you can have dental veneers applied to your teeth, our dentist will need to trim some of your enamel off. Doing this helps ensure that your veneers fit comfortably and do not make your teeth look too bulky. Unlike other types of dental treatments, such as dental crowns, dental veneers only need a small amount of tooth enamel removed in order to fit. This means that your teeth still have plenty of enamel for protection from bacteria and decay.
Dental Veneers Are Durable
Porcelain veneers have a high amount of durability, which means that you can expect them to last for several years. These veneers are not likely to chip, break or sustain any other damage, especially if you take good care of your teeth with proper dental hygiene and routine visits for cleanings and exams. Porcelain veneers are also resistant to stains, so you don’t have to worry about having them replaced due to discoloration.
The Dental Veneer Process Is Quick
Some dental treatments for cosmetic flaws can take several months to complete. The dental veneer process usually only requires two visits. During your first visit, our dentist will prepare your teeth for your veneers and make impressions to be sent to a lab. When your dental veneers are ready, you’ll come in for a second visit to have them applied. You generally won’t need to come in for any additional dental visits other than your routine cleanings and exams when you have dental veneers.
