As we age, our teeth age too, visibly showing the wear and tear of years of use. These cracks, gaps, chips, discolorations, and misalignments make us think twice about smiling. You may look in the mirror and feel overwhelmed by the flaws you see in your smile. Maybe you’re dreading the amount of dental work that you would probably need to have the smile you want. Porcelain dental veneers could be the solution to your problems, correcting these issues with just one relatively comfortable procedure instead of multiple.
Refresh Your Existing Smile With Dental Veneers
With porcelain dental veneers, Truckee, CA dentist Dr. Baldwin can improve the look of your smile by correcting the color, shape, and spacing of your teeth. Dental veneers can eliminate spaces between your teeth, lengthen and reshape small or misshapen teeth or even whiten and brighten stained and faded teeth. If your teeth are chipped or are showing signs of wear, porcelain veneers can protect them from additional damage while also refreshing their appearance with a solution that looks and feels natural.
Consuming foods with dyes or that are acidic like coffee, most fruit, and sugar can stain your enamel and result in tooth sensitivity or discoloration. Some people may be considering having their teeth whitened, but porcelain veneers can resolve this issue for you and multiple others at the same time.
For minor gaps between teeth, or a few misaligned teeth, dental veneers are a more inexpensive and faster option than orthodontic treatment. Porcelain dental veneers are custom-made for each patient’s mouth and placed over your existing teeth, so Dr. Baldwin can specially design yours to cover any minor misalignment, gaps, or cracks.
Are Dental Veneers Right For Me?
The veneers are installed by your dentist after removing the outermost layer of enamel. This alteration allows for the veneers to be placed without feeling overly large in or changing the shape of your mouth. Then they are simply cemented to the front of your teeth.
There are some situations where porcelain veneers may not be appropriate at this time. For example, individuals who suffer from bruxism (habitual grinding of teeth) may want to consult with Dr. Baldwin about addressing this issue before their dental veneers are installed. Patients with very sensitive teeth may not want to undergo the procedure due to the enamel preparation being uncomfortable for those with sensitive teeth. Fortunately, once these issues are treated, most patients are able to benefit from porcelain dental veneers or other cosmetic options provided by Dr. Baldwin.
