5 Reasons Veneers May Be Right for You

5 Reasons Veneers May Be Right for You

Imagine what it would be like if everyone was born with a perfect, dazzling smile. No misshapen teeth. No gapped teeth. No crooked teeth. And definitely, no stained teeth. Okay, back to reality. That world doesn’t exist. But fortunately, advances in cosmetic dentistry can turn fiction into reality. What’s even better is that there are cosmetic dentistry procedures that can take dull, imperfect teeth and, in as few as three appointments, completely transform them to get the smile you’ve always wanted.

One of these game-changing cosmetic dentistry treatments is veneers. The team of expert dentists at Peninsula Dental Excellence in Mountain View, California offer their thoughts on five reasons why veneers may be right for you.

Let’s get started with a quick summary of what dental veneers are. Think of veneers as the perfect outfit that permanently covers your less-than-admirable physical features. With more beautiful-looking teeth, those pronounced lips are even more pronounced. Sounds great, right?

Dental veneers are exceptionally thin shells that are custom-made to cover the front of imperfect teeth, so that you can finally get the smile you only thought was possible in your dreams.

Quick solution for maximum impact

One of the major pluses of veneers is that once you’ve finally made the decision to take the plunge and get that runway smile, you won’t have to wait much longer to get it. Typically the process takes two to three appointments. 

Initially, our team performs a thorough examination and does a consultation to discuss the process with you. If you’re deemed a good candidate, the next step is to prep your teeth for the veneers. During this step, we do a “veneer fitting” by removing a thin layer of enamel from the teeth that will be covered with a veneer. To make sure that both the fit and look of the veneer will match with your other teeth, he’ll take a mold or impression. This impression will be used to mill your veneers. The final step is to adhere the veneers. 

Great smile do-over treatment

This cosmetic dentistry procedure has become a popular option for patients who want a smile do-over and don’t want to be hassled by the time commitment of other cosmetic dental procedures. Now you can get the smile you’ve always wanted without waiting months or years to get it. Veneers can transform teeth that are crooked, misshapen, cracked, chipped or even stained. 

Beautifully matched and natural-looking

Veneers are made from porcelain or resin. They look and pick up light much like natural teeth do. Our team chooses from various shades of veneers so that each patient’s veneers are perfectly matched with their other teeth. They are so natural-looking that most people won’t know they aren’t your natural teeth. 

Long-lasting for years to come

Once you get your veneers, you are good to go for about 10 years or so. Simply brush twice a day, floss daily, and visit your dentist for routine dental examinations and professional cleanings. That’s right. You don’t have to do anything new or special to maintain dental veneers, which makes it a great value as well as an awesome way to look great. 

Perfect confidence booster

Let’s face it. When you finally get that dazzling smile, you’ll find it difficult to stop smiling. Something special happens when you have an extra reason to feel great about yourself. Your confidence level will be sky high.
