If you’ve ever wondered why all your favorite Hollywood stars have perfect smiles, you can rest assured that they weren’t all born that way. Dental veneers are the open secret behind the flawless grins of many a movie star, and they are readily available to dental patients everywhere. Here are a few reasons why you might want to commit to dental veneers in order to have that ideal smile you’ve always dreamed of.

Veneers Make Your Teeth Look Great

Veneers are thin shells designed to fit over your natural teeth while imitating their shape, color, and luster. They can be used to treat a plethora of cosmetic issues such as chips, cracks, stains, and gaps. They can even be used to reshape misshapen teeth or to straighten a smile without orthodontic treatments.

To do this, your dentist will remove a tiny amount of enamel from the teeth being treated before taking bite impressions and fixing a set of temporary veneers on top of them. When your permanent set is ready about two weeks later, you’ll return to the office to have it cemented in place.

Veneers Have Oral Health Benefits

While veneers look great, they aren’t all just for show. Crooked, irregular, or misshapen teeth can negatively affect your oral health because they can be harder to clean and easier to injure. Veneers can straighten them out, align them in a safer position, and allow them to be cleaned normally. They can also protect injured teeth from infections by covering up vulnerable areas like chips are areas with thin enamel. Proper oral hygiene is the same with or without veneers, so you won’t have to add anything more to the standard routine of brushing, flossing, and using antibacterial mouthwash.

Veneers Can Be Placed Painlessly

Veneers can be placed in a few hours, and local anesthetics make the whole process completely painless. You may experience a little soreness after the treatment, but this is temporary and can be treated with over-the-counter pain medication. Teeth that have received veneers will need to wear them from then on, but with proper care, veneers can last longer than twenty years. Veneers are an easy, long-term solution for many cosmetic concerns and dental health issues.
