In the past few years, it seems like a new superhero movie is coming out every time we turn around. Inevitably the star of the show will face a test to rescue someone (or everyone) in a climatic showdown.
In cosmetic dentistry, dental veneers could rescue your smile. The way we do this might not be as exciting as the scenes in an action movie, but the final results can be just as dramatic for a patient who gets a set of dental veneers.
At least, that’s what we think based on the reactions we’ve seen at our dentist office in Billings, MT.
Saving Smiles With Dental Veneers
We wish we could say that everyone who visits us is always happy with his or her smile. The truth is that many patients are embarrassed by their teeth.
Some will avoid eye contact and look away when speaking so their mouths are harder to see. Others can speak to us … but only if they hold their hand over their mouth while they talk.
If you come to our office, we want you to know that you don’t have to feel ashamed of your smile. We are here to support you. Talk to our dentist, Dr. Michael Stuart, about the things you would like to change. Then together, we can come up with a plan to make those changes happen.
Many times, dental veneers could be part of the solution. To illustrate what we mean, here are four times with dental veneers could help you feel better about your smile.
➧ 1. You Have Gaps Between Your Teeth
The technical term for this is diastema. Some people have a single gap in the center of their front teeth. Other people have more than one gap in their smile.
If you would like to fill in those spaces, veneers may be the simplest solution. The right veneers can add some size the affected teeth to create the appearance of an evenly spaced smile.
➧ 2. Your Teeth Are Crooked
Crooked teeth are a common problem. If the crookedness is particularly noticeable, then you may want to consider an orthodontic treatment, such as Invisalign®, to straighten your smile.
However, for minor issues, dental veneers can be equally effective from a cosmetic standpoint. Veneers are custom-designed for each patient. They are bonded to the front of your teeth, and when they are put in place, your smile can look like it is perfectly straight.
➧ 3. Your Teeth Are Yellow Or Dark
Coffee. Tea. Wine. Soft drinks. Sports drinks.
Spaghetti. Desserts. Pizza. Sweet-and-sour chicken.
These are just a few of the many, many foods and drinks that can add to the stains on your teeth. These can make your teeth look yellow or dark.
Injuries, accidents, and prescription medications can cause teeth to turn colors as well.
Teeth whitening can help with the stains, but veneers can help with the stains and everything else that we mentioned. Just as veneers can make your teeth look straighter, they also can give you a smile that is as white and bright as you would like it to be.
➧ 4. Your Teeth Are Chipped or Worn Down
Just as teeth can gradually become darker with each meal that we eat. Certain habits can cause your enamel to wear down with time.
Or, your teeth could become chipped or broken as a result of an accident at any time. A fall, a ball, someone opening a door unexpectedly all could leave you missing a little something from your smile.
Dental veneers can restore what you lost and make your smile look complete once again.
