A survey released by the American Association of Orthodontists found that about a third of Americans admit that they wish they had better-looking teeth. The quality of your smile has professional, social, and personal ramifications. Could your teeth benefit from veneers? After one visit to Kenneth Woo, DDS and Associates in Kensington and Gaithersburg, MD you’ll know exactly what dental veneers can do for you and your smile.
Dental Veneers Hide Imperfections
Your teeth can be perfectly healthy except for visible imperfections on the outer enamel. Veneers hide these imperfections, no matter how unsightly they may be. Though a veneer is made of ultra-lightweight, translucent porcelain, the dental bonding agent used is colored to perfectly match your other teeth. Even dark, discolored, and chipped teeth can look smooth, white, and brand new with veneers.
Dental Veneers Protect
Porcelain is a high-quality ceramic material that is made through a special heating process. It is very durable and resists cracking or chipping. The toughness of the material gives your front teeth a certain level of protection for as long as the veneers are installed. However, it’s still a good idea to wear a mouthguard created by your Kensington or Gaithersburg, MD dentist whenever possible so that the veneers and your teeth have an additional safeguard. This is especially true if you have a tendency to clench your teeth or you participate in sports.
Dental Veneers Save Time
In order to change the positioning of your teeth for an ideal alignment, you would have to wear braces for at least a year or two and visit the dentist about every month. Veneers only take about a month for installation and you’ll only have to attend about two or three total appointments. Furthermore, each appointment with your dentist will only take about 45 minutes to an hour. You won’t have to wait very long to show off your smile to the world!
