Exploring The World Of Dentistry

Going to the dentist was always a bit of a thrill for me. I'm not quite sure if it was my mother's promise to pay me $5 for each cavity free visit or the awesome toys my dentist kept in the waiting room that led to my initial love of dentistry, but one thing is for sure. My early love of dentistry has helped me to maintain a healthy and beautiful smile throughout my entire life. I am convinced that the more we know about dentistry and how it can impact our lives, the more likely we will be to develop good oral hygiene habits. That is why I have decided to start this blog so that everyone can have access to the latest information in the world of dentistry.


4 Issues Dental Veneers Can Fix

Have you always wanted that perfect and even smile that all your favorite actors on TV have? They have likely had dental veneers installed at some point in their life to fix their smile so that it looks great. Here are some reasons why you can get dental veneers to fix your cosmetic problems 

Conceal Imperfections

Do you have cosmetic imperfections with your teeth? This includes teeth that are chipped, edges that are jagged, or odd discoloration that whitening doesn't seem to fix. These are all perfect situations for dental veneers. That is because the damage is mainly cosmetic, and the veneer will cover the surface area of the tooth as a result. The teeth end up looking perfect to others, even though there are imperfections hidden behind that porcelain shell.

Hide Gaps

Do you have a gap between two of your teeth, but you never got braces to close it up because you don't really have other issues with your teeth? One solution to this problem is dental veneers. The veneer surface doesn't have to align perfectly with the existing tooth, since you can use veneers to make teeth slightly wider and close up the gaps that you don't like. The best part is that nobody will be able to tell that you had the procedure done since it will look completely natural.

Hide Stains

Your teeth may not look like they are all the same shade of white. There can be staining on the surface that causes them to look like various shades of white with streaks in them, which may be very appealing to you. You can actually have dental veneers applied across all of your teeth so that they match with the exact same color. This will help ensure that the shade of white is perfect since all those stains will be covered. 

In addition, your dental veneers are not going to become discolored like resin material, such as dental bonding. This helps prevent your morning cup of coffee or smoking from causing your teeth to become discolored again after the veneers are installed. Consider it a permanent teeth whitening solution that is made to last.

Correct Crooked Teeth

Have teeth that are turned slightly and look a bit odd to others? Those teeth can also be hidden with a dental veneer in front of them. While it is not going to solve major problems, it can definitely help with the minor ones so your smile looks perfect.
