For those of us that have had those thoughts (and maybe more than once or twice), there is a way to fix those things we dislike about our own smiles and give us the million dollar movie star smile many of us desire. Most of us jump right away to braces, which can mean long treatment time and numerous trips to the dentist. What would you say if there was an easier way to reach the final destination without wearing braces? Sign me up, right?
Veneers are a great option for many who are looking to change their smile; looking for a brighter, whiter, straighter smile. A veneer is a layer porcelain placed over a tooth, almost like a fingernail. This is done to either improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect the tooth's surface from damage. Many people typically have four to six veneers placed at a time, thus giving them a chance to whiten, straighten, or make any changes to their smile they may desire. Unlike Crowns, which cover the entire tooth, veneers are thin covering of the front and edge of your front teeth. The back side of your natural tooth is conserved with veneers.
I bet you are thinking “This sounds great!” This technology has changed the way many do dentistry. Veneers can really change a person’s smile and boost confidence. It is always best to sit down with your Plymouth, MN dentist and discuss this treatment, what you expect, and what to expect before proceeding. We love being the reason people smile proudly and stand tall behind our veneers!
