What Can Dental Veneers Do For Your Smile in Los Altos?

what is a dental veneer? Los Altos

Many Los Altos individuals are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth. It could be a chip or crack. Perhaps they have yellowed over the years.

You Don’t Have to Live With Chips and Cracks

You don’t have to live with imperfections in your smile. In today’s message, we consider one of these solutions: dental veneers. At Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry, we provide veneers for myriad tooth problems.

In a perfect world, each of your cherished teeth would stay healthy, strong, and dazzling white from childhood to your golden years. However, our teeth work hard for us and take some bumps along the way.

Most California men and women will need to restore a tooth at some point. And if you only need one tooth restored, you’re fortunate. Some people need a restoration every few years.

And there are also people whose teeth are healthy, but they were never attractive to begin with.

What are Dental Veneers?

Traditional veneers come in the form of tooth-colored “shells” that are fitted to the teeth. Each veneer is created for one individual tooth and is affixed permanently to the front. Once placed, it covers the entire visible portion of the tooth.

A veneer can be used when the underlying tooth is structurally sound and free of decay. A beautiful veneer can cover a chip or crack or correct the alignment of a tooth that appears slightly off-kilter as compared to surrounding teeth.

Veneers are Custom-Matched to Your Teeth

Veneers are produced with dental porcelain or composite resin. Many people find veneers appealing because they can create a whiter smile. A veneer can also protect a tooth from damage.

The latest veneers are thinner and stronger than ever. Your dentist only has to remove a minuscule bit of tooth structure to allow for the thickness of the veneer.

An Attractive Smile Increases Your Confidence

Plenty of people have chipped or stained teeth. When it comes to a professional setting, appearances, and first impressions are critical, and that starts with a smile.

Veneers can create a truly unforgettable smile. That is why they are becoming very popular amongst young professionals especially those who have teeth that have darkened or have a superficial crack or small chip.

If you want to be more self-confident in professional and social settings, make your smile a priority.

What are the Benefits of Veneers?

Let’s recap the advantages of dental veneers:

  • They do not stain easily
  • They are custom-made to fit the tooth
  • A veneer can correct a misshapen tooth
  • They can significantly enhance your smile
  • They preserve more healthy tooth structure as compared to dental crowns
  • A veneer can safeguard the front of the tooth from a chip or crack
