Are You a Candidate for Veneers?


Rendering of jaw with porcelain veneer on toothYour smile plays a major role in the impressions that you leave with those around you. When you smile, your teeth are one of the most prominent features. Any imperfections in your teeth can significantly impact the quality of your smile. These imperfections can also affect your confidence. Veneers are a common cosmetic solution for eliminating the appearance of minor dental flaws. Shenandoah Family Dentistry can help to determine if they are right for you.

What are Veneers?


Veneers are a cosmetic treatment for eliminating the appearance of minor flaws in your teeth. Made from composite resin or porcelain, veneers are thin and resemble shells in their appearance. They are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth, completely transforming their appearance and improving the quality of your smile. With veneers, we can correct:
•  Small chips or cracks affecting the enamel of your teeth.
•  Minor alignment issues such as slight gaps or slightly overlapping.
•  Teeth that are disproportionately smaller than the rest.
•  Teeth that are shaped differently than the rest.
•  Discolored teeth that cannot be whitened.

What Benefits Do Veneers Provide?


Veneers provide several benefits. Some of these benefits include:
•  A natural appearance. Veneers are made to match the exact color of your natural teeth. Ceramic veneers can also reflect light just like real tooth enamel.
•  Biocompatibility. The materials used for veneers will not irritate your gums.
•  Affordability. Veneers are more affordable than crowns. They are also much less invasive, requiring less enamel to be removed before placement.
•  Treating a wide variety of flaws. With veneers, we can cover many different dental flaws.
•  Enhancing the beauty of your smile and boosting your confidence.

Are You a Candidate?


Veneers are a great solution for those who have teeth affected by minor flaws. They provide a stronger alternative to bonding and a less invasive alternative to crowns. However, they are not right for everyone. Before undergoing treatment, a thorough consultation, complete with an oral exam, will help us to determine if veneers are truly the right solution for you.
•  You are unhappy with the appearance of your smile. If you have minor flaws in your teeth, they can significantly impact the quality of your smile. Veneers are made to cover over a variety of different flaws. If you are unhappy with how your smile looks, veneers may be an option.
•  The flaws in your teeth are minor cosmetic issues. Veneers are only a cosmetic solution. They cannot treat issues affecting your oral health, such as significant overlapping, large amounts of decay, or large fillings.
•  Your teeth are stained, but they cannot be whitened. Whitening can be an effective treatment for eliminating stains and restoring a beautiful white smile. However, there are certain stains that cannot be treated this way. If your teeth cannot be whitened, veneers can help.
•  You do not grind or clench your teeth. Grinding and clenching, or bruxism, puts an excessive amount of pressure on your teeth. This pressure can cause veneers to chip or break.
•  You have a good oral hygiene routine. Veneers do not develop decay, but they are still able to collect plaque and bacteria. These substances can contribute to gum disease as well as cavities on your other teeth. You may also develop cavities on the backs of teeth treated with veneers or right around the edges of the shells. It is essential that you brush and floss your teeth regularly and have your mouth regularly cleaned and examined.

Veneers can eliminate the appearance of numerous small flaws in your teeth, completely transforming your smile and boosting your confidence. To find out if veneers are the right solution for you, call Shenandoah Family Dentistry at 540-551-4455 to schedule your appointment today.
