5 Reasons You Should Consider Veneers

Did you know that smiling makes you and everyone around you happier? At Silicon Valley Dental Associates in Sunnyvale, California, our team wants you to smile all the time. If you’re hiding your smile because of a chipped tooth or crooked teeth, then you might want to consider veneers. Our team of experienced dental professionals uses these thin porcelain shells to fix cosmetic dental flaws and give you a dramatic new look that will make it hard for you to stop smiling.

1. Fix more smile flaws than you think

When you look at the smile of your favorite actor or actress on TV, you may think they’re so lucky to have such perfect teeth. But the truth is, most people have some smile flaw, whether it’s discoloration, gapped teeth, or misalignment. If you wish your teeth were more like those of a movie star, we can help with veneers.

The thin, yet strong, shells can fix almost any minor smile flaw, including: 

Veneers are affixed to the front of your teeth to camouflage your smile imperfection and make your teeth appear perfect. They are custom colored and contoured to match your other teeth if you only need one tooth fixed.  

2. White and bright

Years of coffee drinking and wine tasting can take their toll on your teeth, leaving them yellowed and stained. Teeth whitening is a popular and effective dental cosmetic treatment that can instantly brighten your smile, but it’s not a long-term solution. And, unfortunately, we can’t treat all stains with teeth whitening agents, particularly stains caused by injury or medication. If you wish your teeth could stay white and bright for years to come, veneers may be the way to go.

While veneers can give you the brighter smile you’ve always wanted, they’re not completely stain-resistant — although they are less susceptible than your natural teeth. To keep your teeth white and bright after, simply continue to brush and floss as routine. Also, be sure to maintain your bi-annual cleanings and checkups. Too, consider limiting your coffee drinking and wine tasting.

3. Add strength

Enamel is the strongest substance in your body, making your teeth the strongest bones. But over time, with all that brushing, eating, and drinking, your enamel begins to wear down, leaving your teeth more vulnerable to damage. Veneers are almost as strong as your enamel and add an extra layer of support and protection to your natural teeth. When bonded to a cracked or chipped tooth, veneers hold your tooth together and may protect it from decay.

4. Last a long time

Like your natural teeth, veneers are meant to last a long time. With good care, your veneers can keep your smile perfect for up to 10 years, and sometimes longer. 

5. Naturally beautiful smile

Veneers are translucent, so they reflect light just like your natural teeth. When you get veneers, your friends may notice something different about you, but they may not be able to figure out what.  To see if veneers make the right smile fix for you, schedule a consultation at Silicon Valley Dental Associates.
