Cosmetic Dentistry-Dental Venners
Your smile is your most important feature. Which means, you deserve to feel happy and comfortable with the appearance of it.
A smile makeover can restore and improve your smile through a cosmetic dentistry treatment plan consisting of both cosmetic and functional procedures. A smile makeover is a customized process that is based on your aesthetic goals.
For some patients, only one or two cosmetic treatments can provide them with their desired results. Others who are looking to address several cosmetic issues can benefit from a complete smile makeover.
If you have any of the following dental concerns, you may qualify as a candidate:
  • Teeth that are crooked or overlap.
  • Teeth that are broken, chipped or worn.
  • Metal fillings.
  • Tooth loss.
  • Tooth gaps.
  • A gummy smile.
  • Tooth stains and discoloration.
A smile makeover can include:
  • Porcelain veneers.
  • Teeth whitening.
  • Invisalign.
  • Gummy smile treatment.
  • Porcelain crowns.
  • Dental implants.
When you schedule a consultation with your dentist, you will be given the opportunity to discuss your goals, expectations and results. Your teeth will be examined for any oral issues, which must be addressed before any cosmetic treatments can be performed. Once your oral health is assessed and is in good condition, your dentist will explain your treatment options and how they can help you achieve your dream smile.
Dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. Veneers are used to fix discolored, worn down, chipped, broken, and misaligned teeth. Veneers are also used to close the gaps between teeth.
Veneers can be used to improve any of the following characteristics:
  • Tooth color: Over time, your teeth can become yellow, stained, or discolored. Diet, smoking and aging all affect the color of your teeth. In some cases, teeth whitening may be an ineffective solution. Veneers are available in a variety of shades, ranging from the most natural to the brightest Hollywood white.
  • Tooth shape and size: Tooth wear may be the result of bruxism or grinding habits. Alternatively, you may just be unhappy with the shape and size of your teeth. Fortunately, with veneers, you have the freedom to hand-pick their shape and size.
  • Alignment and spacing: If you have gaps between your teeth, veneers can also be used. Also, minor alignment issues can be resolved with veneers.
Porcelain veneers closely mimic the characteristics of dental enamel. Moreover, porcelain veneers, unlike cosmetic dental bonding, is not susceptible to staining and discoloration: as a ceramic, it has glass-like properties, which means that it is stain resistant. The use of porcelain veneers thus ensures a more consistent and aesthetically-pleasing smile.
