4 Benefits of Dental Veneers

4 Benefits of Dental Veneers

Do you hide your smile? Nearly 28% of Americans don’t show their teeth when smiling, and as many as 81% of Americans don’t like how their teeth look in photographs. Cosmetic dentistry services such as veneers can enhance the appearance of your teeth so you can love your smile again.

Here at Healthy Smile Dental, we believe it’s important to have not only a healthy smile but also a smile that you love. That’s why we offer an array of cosmetic dentistry services, from veneers to teeth whitening to cosmetic bonding. In this post, Dr. Hannah Baek shares four benefits of versatile dental veneers. 

1. Veneers brighten your smile

Stained or discolored teeth are a common complaint that can keep you from sharing your smile with the world. While professional whitening treatments can often address this issue, whitening doesn’t work for everyone, especially if you have deep stains caused by an injury or due to the side effects of a medication. 

A bright, dazzling smile is a common cosmetic goal, and veneers can help you achieve that goal. Veneers, which are thin porcelain shells bonded to the fronts of your teeth, are completely customizable, and Dr. Baek selects a personalized shade for your veneers. Veneers are stain-resistant, which helps keep your smile oh-so-bright.

2. Veneers are easy to maintain

Unlike dental crowns, which cap an entire tooth, veneers are thin shells of porcelain attached directly to the front of your natural teeth. The shells aren’t removable, so you take care of them simply by brushing your teeth as normal with a soft-bristled toothbrush and an ADA-approved toothpaste. 

Veneers are a long-term cosmetic solution. With a solid at-home oral care routine, they can last for 20 years.

3. Veneers address many problems at once

You already know veneers enhance the color of your teeth, but they do so much more. Veneers can:

Veneers transform the look of your entire mouth. This is a major perk for people who have several concerns with more than one tooth, such as stained teeth or multiple misshapen teeth.

Understand that veneers can’t fix all issues. For example, large cracks may require bonding, and large gaps may require orthodontic treatment. If veneers aren’t the right solution, we also offer Invisalign® and other services like cosmetic bonding to help restore the form and function of your smile.

4. Veneers boost your self-esteem

Perhaps the most important benefit of veneers is that they can boost self-confidence. When you love your smile, you’re more likely to share it δΈ€ and research indicates that smiling boosts your confidence as well as your mood.
