Veneers have helped people all over the world acquire a perfect smile, and these simple restorations could also hide the imperfections that you personally feel embarrassed about. While most people aren’t born with perfect smiles, our Charleston, SC, dentist, Dr. Denise Stone, can help make that possible thanks to this cosmetic treatment!
What are dental veneers?
Veneers are very thin, custom-created porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth to hide flaws and improve the overall appearance of your smile. Most adults with healthy teeth that are looking to improve the shape, size, color, or alignment of their smile could benefit from veneers.
Are you a good candidate for veneers?
So, you may be wondering whether you should get dental veneers from our Charleston, SC, cosmetic dentist. You may want to consider getting veneers if,
You have chips, cracks and other imperfections
If you are embarrassed by your smile because you have some teeth that are cracked, chipped, or have other mild cosmetic flaws, then veneers could easily correct all of these problems and more.
You have severe stains
Some discolorations will respond well to whitening treatment, but not all stains will. If you are dealing with stains that are internal or extremely dark, then the easiest and most effective way to get a whiter smile is with porcelain veneers. Your veneers are custom-made for you, allowing us to choose a natural-appearing, yet radiant, shade of porcelain from which to create your veneers.
You have strong teeth
It’s important that your teeth are strong enough for veneers. This is why every patient needs to come in for a consultation no matter what kind of cosmetic treatment they wish to undergo. In some cases, we may need to take x-rays in order to make sure that there is a sufficient amount of enamel to support the veneers.
You have slightly crooked teeth
If your teeth are just a little crooked or crowded, then you may want to consider veneers. While veneers won’t be able to do the same teeth-shifting job of braces, it can hide some of these misalignments to create a straighter-looking smile.
