Our teeth naturally show signs of age over the course of a life well-lived. These gaps, discolorations, cracks, and minor misalignment can be unsightly when you look in the mirror and cause you to not smile as freely as you should. You may be wondering what can be done for your smile, but the thought of multiple dental procedures does not excite you. Dental veneers may be right for you.
What are dental veneers?
A thin, translucent shell of tooth-like porcelain that is bonded to the front of your teeth, dental veneers can give your teeth a new lease on life. Clearwater Florida dentist Dr. Natasha Radosavljevec offers porcelain veneers to her patients. These veneers will improve the beauty, health, or function of your teeth and can improve your confidence to smile again.
While some people may choose at-home or in-office teeth whitening procedures, dental veneers are constructed of medical-grade porcelain. This substance is less absorbent than tooth enamel and is resistant to many of the pigments and dyes found in wine, coffee, and other foods. Veneers placed on top of most of the existing enamel can eliminate the need for frequent teeth whitening treatments and can be cared for as you would your natural tooth enamel.
What else can veneers fix?
Misalignments, small gaps between teeth, small chips or fractures in the teeth or other minor cosmetic problems can be hidden by dental veneers. Veneers can solve multiple problems at once instead of having extensive orthodontic work. Each dental veneer is customized to the individual, and Dr. Rados consults with each patient throughout the process to ensure that your veneers will meet your needs while helping you look your best.
Life can be stressful, and some of us have developed the bad habit of grinding our teeth. Dental veneers can be broken with extensive teeth grinding, but these issues can be addressed so that anyone can benefit from veneers and veneers can even help restore teeth that may have been damaged by this habit.
Cosmetic bonding may be a better option for those with very sensitive teeth due to the necessity of removing the outer layer of enamel to attach the veneer to your natural teeth. After receiving dental veneers, some patients can experience increased tooth sensitivity. Our experienced team will consult with you to determine the best option to allow you to share with the world the smile you want.
