Veneers are one of the most popular procedures in cosmetic dentistry, for superstars and laymen alike. They are certainly beautiful to look at! However, the benefits and functions of dental veneers go far beyond just providing a beautiful smile and perfectly shaped teeth. At Gulf Dental, we provide dental veneer services for a variety of reasons to help us in our mission to improve your dental health:
- To fix gaps in your smile: Gapped teeth can cause problems with speaking, as well as leave portions of the gums vulnerable to food particles.
- To fix chips and cracks: Cracked, chipped or broken teeth can make it difficult to chew food, and they can increase your chances of having tooth decay.
- To repair tooth shape: Misshapen teeth can cause problems with your bite, which can lead to poor chewing, jaw discomfort, and headaches.
- To whiten your smile: Discolored teeth are not always the results of food or drink stains, and some discoloration cannot be removed by teeth whitening treatments.
What To Expect
Placing dental veneers requires the removal of a small amount of surface enamel in order to help the veneer to remain in place after it is installed. For this reason, traditional veneers are considered a permanent treatment.
Most dental veneers can last for years, depending on a variety of factors, such as daily use and dental hygiene habits. While dental veneers are difficult to stain, they can become discolored over time, so it is important to keep a regular daily dental hygiene routine and to keep regular six-month dental check-up appointments.
