Discover the many benefits to getting dental veneers in Venice, FL.
Smiling offers an array of wonderful health benefits both for your physical and mental wellbeing. Did you know that smiling can boost endorphins and lower your heart rate? Of course, if you are happy about your smile then you may be among those happy people who smile 40-50 times a day; however, if you aren’t happy with your smile then you may only smile about 20 times a day. Our Venice, FL, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Clark Wright, is here to tell you how dental veneers could improve your smile.
What are veneers and what do they do?
These ultra-thin tooth-colored shells are bonded to the front surface of your teeth to improve a myriad of imperfections. Whether you are looking to mask discolorations, chips, cracks, gaps between teeth or other defects that alter the shape, color or length of your smile, dental veneers could just be the best choice for you.
Dental veneers are often made from high-quality porcelain, since this material is not only stain-resistant and durable but also is highly translucent so it mirrors the look of natural tooth enamel. No one will be able to tell that you actually have veneers.
How are teeth prepped for these restorations?
Another benefit to choosing veneers is that little tooth preparation is needed before your Venice dentist can bond these porcelain shells to your teeth. While some enamel will need to be shaved off the front surface of your teeth, you need not worry! This is completely painless and can often be performed without needing local anesthesia.
Once teeth are prepped and ready for your veneers, molds of your teeth will have to be taken. These molds will help the dental lab get the exact tooth measurements they need to create veneers with the perfect fit. Once your custom veneers are made (this usually takes about one week) you will come back into our office so that we can fit you with your new restorations and bond them to the front of your teeth. In as little as two to three sessions, you could get a brand new smile for life.
