The holidays are coming! The holidays are coming!
With apologies to Paul Revere, we hope our warning fills you with happiness, not worry.
But we also know that for many people the holidays can be a stressful time. Based on what we’ve heard from some of our patients, the social obligations are big part of that stress, especially if you are embarrassed by your teeth.
At Weddell Dental, we want every patient to feel confident about his or her smile. It’s one of the reasons we are happy to offer dental veneers as part of our cosmetic dentistry.
Consider it a gift to yourself.
People Get Dental Veneers For Many Reasons
In previous posts, we have discussed the versatility of veneers. It’s one of the reasons they remain among the most popular cosmetic services at our office and across the country.
Veneers can to more than improve your smile. For many people, veneers can give you the smile of your dreams — and they already have for many of our patients.
It’s a fact of life that we put our teeth through a lot. Because of this many people end up with chipped or broken teeth. All it takes is biting into the wrong thing or getting distracted at the wrong time, and your smile can be changed.
But your smile doesn’t have to stay that way. You can repair your tooth or teeth with natural-looking, durable dental veneers.
It’s equally true that people with perfect smiles are few and far between.
Many people have diastema, which is the technical term for a gap between teeth. If this makes you feel self-conscious about smiling, veneers can close that space for you.
Lots of people also have crooked or crowded teeth. A set of veneers can conceal them to give you the appearance of someone with a perfectly straight, perfectly aligned smile.
Another common problem that affects many people as they get older is discoloration of their teeth. Stains, illnesses, medications, injuries, and worn-down enamel are all reasons one or more of your teeth may not be as white as you would like.
With veneers, you can have the bright, white smile you want to have.
And one of the best things about veneers is that they can be used to address multiple issues simultaneously. If you come see us soon, you could have a new smile before you carve the Thanksgiving turkey, open a gift from your secret Santa, or ring in the New Year.
How Veneers Work
Veneers are a different approach to cosmetic dentistry than some other services.
Professional teeth whitening can be effective at removing stains from your teeth. Orthodontic care will physically push or pull your teeth into new positions.
Veneers don’t change your teeth. Instead, veneers conceal them.
Veneers are sort of like putting a new facade on a building. The structure remains the same, but the outward appearance is made to look more attractive.
Getting veneers starts with an examination to make sure you are a good candidate for this service. Assuming you are, we can remove a thin layer of enamel from the front of your teeth. This creates room to bond your veneers in place without changing your profile.
Your veneers are made to fit your teeth, and they can be crafted to make your teeth as white, as straight, and as complete as you want them to be.
At many offices, it can take weeks to get your veneers, but at Weddell Dental, you could have new veneers in one day. With our CEREC system, we can make veneers while you wait and bond them to your teeth before you leave.
