Having a beautiful smile matters a lot. There have been many studies that have shown the relationship between our smile and our self-esteem. When you’re confident, you smile more frequently. While at the same time when you smile more often, you begin to feel happier. If you are embarrassed to smile because of bad teeth, it can greatly impact your quality of life. The good news is there is a range of cosmetic dentistry options that will allow you to enjoy a stunning smile. One such solution is cosmetic teeth veneers. Below, Los Angeles, CA dentist, Dr. Dalwani shares how cosmetic teeth veneers can improve your smile.
Cosmetic teeth veneers are essentially a new “front” to your existing teeth. The wafer-thin strips of porcelain are attached to the front of your natural teeth to hide imperfections and enhance the smile. Veneers are custom crafted to transform your smile dramatically, while also looking natural. Veneers can be used to correct a range of issues such as stains, chips, cracks, and deeply discolored teeth. They can also alter the size and shape of the teeth and close in small gaps.
There is a lot of planning that goes into cosmetic teeth veneers to ensure that you have the most optimal outcome. Using digital x-rays and photographs, Dr. Dalwani will create the specifications that will be used to fabricate your custom veneers. Along the way, you’ll be asked to give your input on your ideal smile and help determine the color and shape of your final veneers.
The entire process for receiving veneers usually requires two appointments. During the first visit, your teeth will be prepped by removing a small amount of enamel to allow the veneers to sit flush in the smile. Temporary veneers will be placed on the teeth for a few weeks to protect them while you wait for your final veneers.
When you return for the second appointment, the doctor will check each veneer for proper fit and feel. Once you have given the go-ahead, the veneers will be permanently bonded to the front surface of the teeth. Minor adjustments can be made in the office after which your veneers will be given a final polish and you will leave with your brand-new smile.
There are many advantages to choosing cosmetic teeth veneers to enhance your smile. They include:
