3 Ways Dental Veneers Can Improve Your Smile 

dental veneers monroviaAre you unhappy about your smile? Do you avoid smiling in public or feel self-conscious about the way you look every time you smile?

Dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are of the same color as your teeth. They are bonded to the front surfaces of your natural teeth and address many different physical and aesthetic issues related to your smile.

Dental veneers are stain-resistant and camouflage minor orthodontic problems. They are a very good treatment for Monrovia patients with enamel erosion or enamel abrasion and are aesthetically pleasing as well. Veneers are a quick and easy fix to many cosmetic problems, and they are affordable too

There Are 5 Signs You Need Dental Veneers

#1: Your teeth are cracked, chipped or broken.

#2: Your teeth are extremely discolored or stained. Even regular whitening doesn’t seem to work.

#3: Your teeth are badly worn down. This can happen because of constant grinding and clenching over the years (a condition referred to as bruxism.)

#4: Your teeth appear to be misaligned, uneven or irregularly shaped.

#5: There are gaps between your teeth, which makes your smile look unsightly.

Here Are 3 Ways Dental Veneers Can Transform Your Smile

 #1: They give you a complete smile makeover.

A veneer is essentially a thin porcelain shell that is carefully bonded to the surface of your tooth by skilled Monrovia cosmetic dentist, Dr. Q. They are very versatile and can correct almost any problem with your smile. A veneer can…

  • Modify the shape and size of your teeth
  • Fill up the gaps in between teeth
  • Straighten up any crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Cover any ugly, yellowish or dark stains
  • Restore your natural smile even if your teeth have been damaged by an accident

#2: They are easy to apply.

Dental veneers are surprisingly easy to apply, certainly easier than crowns and dental implants. Applying veneers is a completely painless process, it is non-invasive, and no sedation is needed.

Your Monrovia dentist, Dr. Q makes an impression of your teeth during your first visit, and the dental lab creates natural looking porcelain prosthetics based on that. During your second visit, we bond the veneer to your teeth using special cement.

The entire process takes only a few minutes of your time, and the effects are long-lasting. Once applied, a porcelain veneer can last for 10 to 15 years, and even longer, with proper care.

#3: They appear perfectly natural, beautiful and flawless and are impossible to detect.

Dental veneers look very natural and flawless. It’s very difficult to detect a dental veneer unless you’re a trained dentist. They resemble your natural teeth in every way.

The advances in dental technology over the last 30 years have made veneers more lifelike than ever before.

The new types of porcelain veneers are stronger and reflect light in the same manner as natural dental enamel. For instance, veneers don’t have one single shade: they are slightly darker near the gums, just like natural teeth.

You can feel confident enough about showing off your smile without worrying about anyone finding out.

At Dr. Q, we use digital imaging systems to create restorations that match the natural shape and color of your teeth almost to perfection.

Moreover, we combine dental veneers with other advanced dental treatments such as dental crowns and teeth whitening for a more comprehensive cosmetic result and to give you a truly dazzling smile.
