Our teeth will show signs of a well-lived life over time: gaps, discoloration, cracks, and minor misalignment. If you’re wondering how to deal with these cosmetic issues, without having multiple dental procedures, dental veneers may be right for you.
A porcelain veneer is a thin, translucent shell of material that mimics the natural enamel of teeth and is bonded to the front of teeth. Toledo OH dentists Dr. Eric Hires, Dr. Jaslynn Kalsi and Dr. Nithya Nagaraj offer porcelain veneers to patients who want to improve the beauty, health, or function of their teeth.
Many patients may choose at-home or in-office teeth whitening services. These treatments may be effective at brightening teeth but results will fade without regular maintenance. Dental veneers are comprised of medical-grade porcelain, which doesn’t absorb as many of the pigments found in wine, coffee, and other colorful foods. Veneers are attached on top of most of the existing enamel, so you won’t have to worry about teeth whitening for a long time!
Dental veneers also help in hiding minor cosmetic problems such as misalignments, small gaps between teeth, or small chips or fractures in the teeth. Instead of having extensive orthodontic work, dental veneers might possibly solve multiple problems at once. Each dental veneer is customized to the individual, and our dentists consult with each patient individually, so our team can ensure your veneers are perfect for you and your needs.
If you habitually grind your teeth, Dr. Hires and his associates will work with you to determine the best solution to this destructive issue. Dental veneers can be broken if you’re prone to grinding your teeth, but we’ll work with you to address the issues that might cause this issue. Fortunately, many people can have if these underlying causes are addressed!
Veneers require the outer layer of enamel to be removed in order to be attached to your natural teeth. Some patients have experienced increased tooth sensitivity after receiving dental veneers. Our experienced team will consult with you to determine the best course of action to help you create a brighter smile with a minimum of discomfort.
