Are worn, slightly crooked, stained, or chipped teeth affecting your smile and negatively impacting your self-confidence? Here at Elite Smiles in Morrisville, NC, you can turn to dental veneers to effectively mask cosmetic imperfections and procure a beautiful appearance. Led by Dr. Geetha Sripathi, read on to learn what this popular treatment can do for you.
The Benefits of Dental Veeners
Veneers can be utilized for concealing gaps, crooked teeth, cracks, chips, and stubborn stains that teeth whitening can’t quite fix. Using advanced materials and techniques, dentists can craft veneers that are virtually indistinguishable from real teeth. These materials, most notably, dental-grade porcelain, are capable of mimicking the natural light-reflecting properties of the enamel of real teeth and can be easily color-matched to your specific preference.
In addition, while every person’s results will differ based on their specific concerns and goals, generally, you can expect to achieve a more youthful-looking, balanced, and radiant smile. Dental veneers are likewise remarkably durable, and with proper maintenance, can last more than 10 years.
Are Veneers Right for Me?
During a consultation at our Morrisville office, your dentist will take into account the following factors when determining your eligibility for dental veneers:
The Degree of Misalignment
While veneers can easily hide minor misalignment and small gaps, orthodontic treatment may be recommended for people with severely misaligned teeth.
The Condition of the Enamel
For veneer treatment, you need to have a certain level of tooth enamel because your dentist will need to slightly resurface your teeth before placing your restorations. However, don't worry—most people qualify for treatment, and if there is an issue, we can work with you to make your smile eligible.
Teeth grinding or bruxism involves grinding and clenching teeth, which could damage the veneers. Depending on the severity of bruxism, the dentist may require the patient to wear an oral appliance to safeguard the veneers or recommend treating the condition first before applying veneers.
