This cosmetic dentistry treatment instantly transforms an unsightly smile into one that looks amazing. Our Kennewick dentist is highly trained and experienced in placing dental veneers on teeth.
What Are Dental Veneers?
When you smile, you’re telling people that you are happy, excited, or even nervous. That’s why you need dental veneers — your smile does a lot more than just chew your food.
But what are dental veneers? They are shell-like covers for the front of your teeth. Veneers are made to fit your teeth in particular, and although they are very thin, they are also very strong. Dental veneers look like healthy enamel on your teeth.
Dr. Hadley has done many dental veneers procedures over the years, giving him the experience to know how to place them just right. In the dental veneers procedure, you start by getting a thin layer of enamel removed. This way, your veneers will look natural on your teeth instead of looking too big. Then our Kennewick dentist artfully bonds the veneers to your teeth.
Why Actors Needed Cosmetic Dentistry
Dental veneers were invented in the early days of Hollywood. Actors needed makeup to look better on film, but there was no makeup for teeth. Eventually, actors started getting an acrylic dental veneer on their teeth.
But there was a problem: These primitive veneers wouldn’t stay on the teeth for very long. That’s why only actors wore them, and then only for a scene or so.
Years later, someone took a cue from house painters. To make sure paint sticks to the walls, painters will scuff up the walls a bit. When dentists painlessly scuffed up enamel on the front of the teeth, dental veneers could stay put for years.
Today, modern dental veneers are even better. They are made from a composite resin material that looks like healthy enamel. And with new advances in the bonding material, your veneers will last 10 years or more. That’s a whole decade of having a great-looking smile.
How You Benefit From Dental Veneers
The main benefit from getting dental veneers is that your unsightly smile now looks amazing. But here are some specific ways dental veneers benefit you.
Dental veneers seal up damage on the front of your teeth.
Although your enamel is very tough, it can get damaged. These chips and cracks not only look bad, they can grow worse over the years thanks to all that chewing you need to do.
Call Marineland Dental Center today at 509-591-0515 to help your teeth with dental veneers. These will cover over such damage, making your teeth look great. But dental veneers also seal up that damage so it does not get any worse.
Dental veneers hide stains, even intrinsic ones that teeth whitening cannot touch.
After drinking coffee, tea, wine, and more for so many years, it’s natural that your teeth collet dark stains. Teeth whitening is great for removing these stains, but some people have deep stains that teeth whitening cannot remove.
By calling our Kennewick dentist today, you can get dental veneers that hide all stains, surface or intrinsic. Despite being thin, your composite veneers are thick enough to cover stains so everyone sees a bright, healthy-looking smile.
Dental veneers cover small gaps between your teeth.
Your teeth are never stuck in one place. Decades of chewing can cause them to move slightly. That means you could now have small gaps between your teeth even if you had braces as a teen.
Thankfully, you can call Dr. Hadley and get dental veneers that cover those gaps. By making your veneers just a little bigger in spots, you can hide gaps so your smile looks like you just finished with braces.
