Do you shy away from pictures because you don’t like how your smile looks? Many people feel self-conscious or embarrassed by their teeth. Some don’t like their color, others their alignment. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry allows us to correct these problems with dental veneers so that you can get your smile back.

Dental veneers are thin, porcelain shells that attach to the front of your teeth in order to correct any number of imperfections. Veneers can cover stained or discolored teeth, close gaps between teeth, fix irregularly shaped teeth, and even repair chipped and worn teeth. They can be applied to one or multiple teeth and can match teeth that won’t receive veneers.

Getting veneers is a two-step process. First, the tooth or teeth that will be treated needs to be cleaned and prepared. It will need to be reshaped to accommodate the extra bulk of the veneer and buffed so it bonds correctly. Impressions are also taken so each custom veneer fits exactly. When they are ready, they will be bonded to each tooth with a special cement. The veneers will integrate with your natural teeth and fit great.

Your veneers can last for years if properly taken care of. Although they can’t get cavities from plaque buildup, continue to brush and floss on and around them to ensure the teeth they are mounted to remain healthy.

Dental veneers could be the solution you are looking for if you have imperfect teeth. A strong, solid smile can give you confidence and inspire others. Call Smiles of Distinction in Savage, MN, today to schedule a consultation.
