If you have a smartphone nearby, take a quick selfie. Be sure to smile big and show your teeth.
If you don’t have a cell phone handy, try to find a mirror to take a look at your smile.
What do you see? How could you improve your smile?
No matter what your answer is, Atlanta West Dentistry can help. Our dentists have decades of combined experience helping patients in and around Marietta, GA, recreate their smile. One of the fastest and most effective ways to change your smile is dental veneers.
Ways Dental Veneers Can Change Your Smile
Dental veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic treatments that we offer. You can get a single veneer to restore one tooth. You can get a full set of veneers to change your entire smile. Or you can get any number of veneers in between.
Veneers are made of materials that can be shaded to match the rest of your smile or to improve your appearance, all while looking like natural teeth.
With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at some of the things veneers could do for you.
▶ FIX BROKEN OR CHIPPED TEETH
You might have bitten into the pit of an olive or an unpopped kernel of popcorn. Or maybe you convinced yourself that a piece of jawbreaker candy was worth biting into.
Then again, people are just as likely to break a tooth as a result of an accident. Falling, missing a ball during a game of catch, or a collision with another person all could leave you with one or more broken teeth.
The good news is that you can make it look as good or better with one of our dental veneers.
▶ HIDE YOUR CROOKED TEETH
For severe alignment issues, orthodontic care may be the best option. However, if your teeth are mildly crooked or crowded, you may be able to improve their appearance by concealing them instead.
A set of custom-designed set of dental veneers can be made to give you the appearance of perfectly straight teeth. For mild alignment issues, this can change your smile in a matter of weeks rather a year or more.
▶ CLOSE GAPS BETWEEN YOUR TEETH
Gaps between teeth are common. You may have a gap between the teeth at the center of your smile. You also may have multiple gaps in different parts of your smile.
If you feel self-conscious about your gap or gaps, veneers are a long-term fix to close those open spaces in your smile.
▶ GIVE YOURSELF A BRIGHTER, WHITER SMILE
Teeth whitening is arguably the single most popular cosmetic service in the United States. We do offer a variety of professional whitening options at our practice.
At the same time, you may prefer a more long-term solution. Professional whitening will remove stains from your teeth, but you will continue adding new stains with each sip of coffee or tea and each bite of countless foods.
Veneers can be shaded to be as white as you would like. They are more stain-resistant than natural teeth, and they can last for several years with proper care. Getting veneers may cost more than a single whitening treatment, but the results could be a smile that stays whiter for much longer.
▶ DO A COMBINATION OF THINGS
One of the great things about dental veneers is that they can so many different things. Because of this, you can use veneers to solve multiple issues at the same time.
You can close the gaps in your smile and make your teeth look whiter. You can restore your chipped teeth and give yourself a straighter smile.
If you want to improve your smile, you owe it to yourself to find out if dental veneers could do what you want done.
