Dental Fillings - Veneers for a Radiant Smile

A smile is a beautiful thing. If it is a truly radiant smile, it will light up not just the face, but the personality of the person smiling and will open pathways to friendship and love. Everyone wants a perfect radiant smile, but not everyone has one. Hiding a smile because of broken, stained or crooked teeth is a common way of life for millions of people. This affects them emotionally and psychologically even though they often do not realize it. The quality of life is reduced and the potential opportunities for growth in relationships, emotions, career and just about every facet of life is reduced. But there is a safe and easy solution to this problem. If you are among the millions who are unsure of their smiles, all you need to do is ask your dentist about veneers - the best way to get a radiant smile.

What Are Veneers?

Dental veneers are custom-made shells that fit over the front of your teeth. They conceal stains, cracks, chips and other imperfections to improve the appearance of a smile. Veneers are made from:

Porcelain: These are ceramic covers that fit over the front of the teeth. The dentist will measure the affected teeth and make molds of them after which custom veneers will be made for each tooth that is to be covered. The effects of fitting veneers are immediate as the smile is immediately transformed. The benefits of this type of porcelain veneers include the following:

  • They are very long-lasting.
  • They have a natural look.
  • They can cover a variety of problems that affect the radiance of a smile.

The downsides are:

  • Measuring and fitting veneers may require 3 or 4 visits to the dentist.
  • Porcelain veneers are hard but also brittle so care must be taken to prevent damage to them.

Composite Materials: These veneers are made from a special composite dental resin/plastic which can be adjusted to look tooth-colored. Unlike the porcelain veneer process, in the case of composites, the dentist will apply the resin directly onto the affected tooth. The dentist will then shape the veneer to create a natural-looking unstained or unbroken tooth. The benefits of this type of veneer are:

  • Composite veneers are weaker than porcelain ones and may need repair or replacement more frequently.
  • Composite veneers are not as impervious as porcelain ones and could become stained more quickly.

The downsides are:

  • Measuring and fitting veneers may require 3 or 4 visits to the dentist.
  • Porcelain veneers are hard but also brittle so care must be taken to prevent damage to them.

The Permanent Fix for Less Than Attractive Smiles

Veneers completely cover the teeth and mask all imperfections. They are considered to be the permanent way to get a smile makeover. While they may, in some cases, need to be changed over time, in other cases, with proper care, they may never need replacement.

Your smile is something you use all day, every day. It helps to define who and what you are. The wonderful thing about smiles is that no matter how much you flash them, people never tire of them. A radiant smile is the best accessory a person can have. Contact your dentist to discuss the best options for releasing the profound power of your radiant smile. Veneers give you something to smile about.
