Teeth start to show signs of wear and tear as the years pass. It’s inevitable. These cracks, gaps, chips, discoloration, and misalignments can make us self-conscious about our smiles. Maybe we don’t feel as free to smile whenever we like. You may look at your smile and be overwhelmed by the “imperfections” you see. Maybe you dreading the amount of dental work that you’d need to have to get the smile you really want. If this sounds like you, dental veneers could be your best bet to correct these problems in just a few office visits, and with only one procedure instead of multiple.
Refresh Your Existing Smile With Dental Veneers
With dental veneers, Medford NJ dentist Dr. Poorva Parnaik of Dental Creations can improve the aesthetics of your smile by correcting the color, shape, and spacing of your teeth. Dental veneers can reduce spaces between teeth, reshape small or misshapen teeth or whiten stained teeth. Maybe you have some teeth that are chipped or worn down? Dental veneers can protect them from being damaged further while also restoring their appearance in a natural-looking way.
Eating and drinking foods and drinks with dyes or that have acidic properties like coffee, most fruit, and sugar can damage your enamel, discoloring your teeth and making them sensitive. Digestion begins in the mouth, and everything we eat affects our teeth, some foods more than others. Some patients may consider whitening their teeth, but dental veneers may be a better option for you if you have multiple concerns that need to be addressed.
For minor gaps between teeth, or a few misaligned teeth, dental veneers are quicker and more affordable than orthodontic treatment. Dental veneers are custom-made for each patient’s mouth and placed over your existing teeth, so Dr. Parnaik can design yours to cover any minor misalignment, gaps, or cracks.
Are Dental Veneers Right For Me?
The veneers are installed by Dr. Parnaik after she removes the outermost layer of enamel. This prevents the teeth from looking or feeling too large in the patient’s mouth. Then they are fastened to the front of the teeth. This is unlike the procedure for a dental crown, where the teeth are altered or removed. With dental veneers the teeth in your smile will still be your own, simply covered with a protective layer that is more straight and white than your natural teeth are now, resulting in an enhanced version of your smile!
There are some cases in which dental veneers may not be the best option at this time. For example, individuals suffering from bruxism (habitual grinding of teeth) may want to consult with Dr. Parnaik about addressing this issue before veneers are installed. Patients with very sensitive teeth may not want the procedure due to the need to remove the outermost layer of enamel to prepare the teeth for veneers. Fortunately, once these issues are addressed, most patients are able to benefit from veneers or are able to consider other cosmetic options provided by Dr. Parnaik. Dr. Parnaik offers both porcelain and resin-based veneers for all needs and budgets.
