If you want to enhance your smile, you’re not alone. Many patients come to our Glendale cosmetic dentistry office because they’re simply dissatisfied with the state of their natural teeth. Here are some common complaints—too dark, crooked teeth, chipped or cracked enamel. Do you see yourself on this list? If you do, dental veneers may be a viable cosmetic option for you. Dental veneers can effectively correct a number of common cosmetic problems—patients can transform their smiles in only a few appointments!
A number of cosmetic problems can be rectified with dental veneers, including problems resulting from:
Accident or trauma—if you have cracked or chipped teeth due to injury dental veneers can resurface the appearance of enamel, making it appear smooth and shiny again. Whether you’ve suffered from an accident or have unaesthetic enamel due to root canal, dental veneers can brighten and perfect the appearance of your teeth.
Aging—Everyone’s teeth change with age. Dental enamel wears down with time, exposing the yellow, darker dentin beneath the enamel. If your enamel is starting to show its age you can give your smile new life with porcelain veneers. Patients with persistent and hard-to-treat stains may also benefit from this treatment. Veneers are designed to be stain-resistant, and they can be shaded to enhance your smile and coordinate with your natural teeth.
Genetics—Let’s face it, sometimes we just aren’t happy with the teeth that nature (or our parents!) gave us. Crooked, misaligned teeth can be corrected with orthodontics, but patients who don’t want to wait through months of treatment can get a straighter smile with veneers.
Some patients choose dental veneers because they have multiple dental concerns and they want to address them efficiently. Veneers are almost like the multi-tasking dental treatment. A whiter, straighter smile is only one treatment away.
Don’t settle for a smile you don’t love. Your teeth are worth investing in both for your appearance and your self-esteem. If you’re looking at this list and thinking, “That sounds like me!” give us a call to get more information or schedule a consultation. Our Glendale cosmetic dentists are here to help—(818) 334-2974.
