As we age, our teeth will begin to show signs of wear and tear. These cracks, gaps, chips, discoloration, and misalignments can make us feel embarrassed of our smiles and maybe we don’t smile as freely as we should. You may look at your smile in the mirror and be overwhelmed by all the different issues. Maybe you’re living in dread of the variety of dental procedures that you’ll need to have the smile you want. Dental veneers could be a simple and relatively inexpensive option to correct these issues in just a few office visits, with one procedure instead of multiple.
Refresh Your Existing Smile With Dental Veneers
With porcelain dental veneers, Toledo, OH dentist Dr. Hires of Hires Dental Care can improve the aesthetics of your smile by correcting the color, shape, and spacing of your teeth. Dental veneers can reduce gaps between your teeth, lengthen small or misshapen teeth or whiten stained teeth. Maybe your teeth are chipped, damaged or are showing signs of wear? Porcelain veneers can protect your smile from further damage while also restoring their appearance in a way that looks and feels natural, effectively giving your smile a facelift.
Consuming foods with dyes or that are acidic like coffee, most fruit, and sugar can negatively affect your enamel, resulting in tooth sensitivity or discoloration. Digestion begins in the mouth, and that means that everything we eat affects our teeth, some food and drink more than others. You may be considering having your teeth whitened, but dental veneers may be a better option for you if you have multiple issues with your smile that need to be addressed.
For minor gaps between teeth, or just a few misaligned teeth, dental veneers could be a faster, more comfortable and more affordable option than pursuing orthodontic treatment. Porcelain veneers are custom-created for each patient’s mouth and placed over your existing teeth, so Dr. Hires can design yours to cover any minor misalignment, gaps, or cracks.
Are Dental Veneers Right For Me?
The veneers are installed by Dr. Hires after he removes the outermost layer of enamel. Then they are simply attached to the teeth. This is unlike a dental crown, where the teeth are removed or altered. With porcelain dental veneers the teeth that make up your smile will still be your own but covered with a protective layer, resulting in a refreshed version of your smile!
There are some patients for whom porcelain veneers may not be a viable option at this time. For example, individuals who suffer from bruxism (habitual grinding of teeth) may want to consult with Dr. Hires about resolving this issue before veneers are installed. Patients with very sensitive teeth may not want to undergo the procedure until this issue has been addressed. Fortunately, once these issues are treated, most patients are able to benefit from veneers or are able to consider the numerous other cosmetic options offered by Hires Dental Care.
