Veneers are the ultimate technique for smile rehabilitation! As a cosmetic dentistry technique, veneers are thin, porcelain facings that are bonded over the front teeth. This restorative technique is great because it is minimally invasive and offers realistic and long-lasting shine for years to come!
Simple, Effective Cosmetic Dentistry
Have you ever wondered it if were possible to just re-surface your teeth? Rather than trying to whiten away stains, couldn’t we just apply some sort of paint or product that gives our teeth a whole-new look without attempting to undo the natural staining that occurs as we age? Well, veneers provide just such an answer. Whether your teeth are stained from poor oral habits in the past or have simply lost their luster in recent years, veneers can give you an all-new look in one simple procedure.
Giving Teeth a New Look
At Salvatore Dental, your cosmetic dentist can quickly and easily apply veneers that are specially-made to fit over your natural tooth and provide an all-new surface to eat, brush, and smile with! Best of all, you won’t have to take them in and out all the time, you’ll get a white, real-looking tooth to enjoy for years to come without any extra effort on your part. You get to enjoy a brand-new smile in about as much time as it takes for a standard cleaning!
Who Benefits from Veneers
While just about anyone with stained or unsightly teeth typically benefits from veneers, there are a few criteria that define the ideal patient for this cosmetic dentistry service, including:
- Strong, healthy natural teeth to place veneers upon; those without a healthy tooth should consider an alternative, such as a crown, bridge, or dental implant
- Stained teeth that just won’t get back to their original whiteness
- Teeth that are lacking suitable enamel on their faces and can lead to more damage down the road
- Teeth that have a minor twist
- Covering a small gap or compensating for an overlap
- Natural staining from tooth aging
- Environmental stains, such as from smoking and coffee
After Your Veneers
Once you have a veneers on your teeth, they will function almost identical to your original tooth. When you go to the dentist, they will check up on the strength and bond of your veneers to assess if any or all of them need to be repaired or replaced. Otherwise, you can continue to brush and floss as normal. It is worth noting: Veneers are not stain-proof, so if you continue any bad habits that may have caused your original teeth to stain, you could risk re-staining your veneers.
