If you have an uneven set of teeth or your teeth are compromised for some reason, then one of the most effective and non-invasive ways to treat it is to get a set of veneers. Veneers are not just used to cosmetically enhance your smile, but they also work well when it comes to protecting your teeth and your tooth enamel. If you are not sure about whether a veneer can benefit you or not, then we would highly recommend you visit us here at Ephrata Family Dentistry. We will sit down with you and help determine which restorative option would be best for you and your situation.
Sometimes you may have perfectly healthy teeth, but your teeth will not be white because of certain lifestyle choices such as smoking or beverage choices; there could maybe also be health reasons or medications that can affect tooth coloring. Although teeth whitening procedures can help enhance your teeth and make them clean and white, sometimes it does not manage to take out certain stains.
When there are stains on the front teeth, it becomes very difficult for you to smile and have a normal conversation without people staring at your stained teeth. In such situations, the best way to get it treated would be to get veneers. In general, veneers are stain-resistant so people who are prone to staining can rest a little easier. This means that you will manage to maintain flawless white teeth all the time. The only exception to this is around the edges of the veneer, where the veneer and the tooth meet. This area is susceptible to staining, leaving unsightly outlines around your veneers.
Gums Are More Tolerant Towards Veneers
Veneers usually start from your gums and so do most dental orthodontics. It might be a little difficult for your gums to get used to such dental devices on your teeth, however, when it comes to veneers, they are surprisingly cooperative. This is because a veneer is non-invasive, and it does not hurt your gums in any way but is gently placed over the tooth. A veneer is like a shell or a cap that goes over your tooth and slightly touches your gums thereby perfectly fitting around the tooth.
When done correctly, it becomes one with the tooth and this is exactly what our professionals can do for you. When you get dental fittings that are uncomfortable and irritable to your gums, you become susceptible to gum infections, which is something we all want to avoid.
Although veneers are placed over your teeth and they are the least invasive of all dental procedures one can think of, they are surprisingly long-lasting and you won't have to worry about replacing them for many years to come. They are versatile and you can have them fitted on almost any tooth in your mouth with no problem whatsoever. So don't hold back from restoring a flawless smile, give us a call at (223) 264-3020 or visit us at Ephrata Family Dentistry for that happy smile.
