Do you have higher aspirations for your smile? Maybe you're unhappy with a stained or misshapen tooth. Despite putting plenty of time and effort into their oral health, many patients still want more when it comes to their cosmetic dental appearance. Fortunately, at Beacon Hill Dental, we offer our patients fantastic porcelain veneers that provide a new and improved cosmetic look.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
If you could simply cover up any tooth or teeth that cause detriment to your cosmetic appearance, would you do it? Instead of replacing any teeth or requiring surgery, dental veneers act as a tooth-like cover that sits over an existing tooth. Dental veneers seamlessly blend in with the rest of the teeth around them to improve a patient's smile. After creating a custom veneer made of porcelain, a dentist prepares the tooth's surface and places the veneer on top, securing it with a strong dental adhesive.
How Do Dental Veneers Help My Smile?
Our staff at Beacon Hill Dental may recommend dental veneers to patients with certain cosmetic dental situations. A few scenarios include:
- Stained teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Oddly shaped teeth with gaps
- Cracked or chipped teeth
By effectively covering up a "problem tooth," dental veneers can provide the following benefits to patients:
- Increase in self-esteem
- Improvement in overall oral health
- Dental veneers are easy to clean and manage at home and regular dental appointments
- Ensuring better cleaning by creating a more uniform smile
- Less hesitancy to smile in photos or social situations
- Continued motivation to take care of overall oral health and visit a dentist regularly
