What are Veneers?
If you are unhappy with the way your front teeth look, one option we use to make improvements is dental veneers. Veneers are wafer-thin, tooth-colored shells that are permanently bonded to the front of the teeth. This treatment can be used on one or multiple teeth. If you are looking to brighten your smile as well, it is important to know that veneers cannot be whitened. Therefore, we recommend getting a whitening treatment before your veneers are placed so your teeth will match. Dental veneers can improve imperfections such as:
- Worn, chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Uneven or irregularly shaped teeth
- Severely stained or discolored teeth
- Gaps between teeth
Benefits of Veneers
We often recommend veneers to patients because they blend in perfectly with the natural teeth and can last for many years. Other options, such as dental bonding, can provide similar results but are not as sturdy and are more prone to chipping and breaking. Veneers are also low-maintenance. Veneers can be brushed and flossed along with your natural teeth. We recommend using a soft-bristled toothbrush and brushing using gentle motions so the veneers do not become scratched or damaged. Patients love veneers because they also resist staining and can help cover set-in stains on teeth.
Our patients in St. Paul, MN have been thrilled with the results they have seen with dental veneers. If you are ready to take the plunge and transform your smile with veneers, call our office to schedule an appointment. We look forward to helping you achieve a smile that could rival any Hollywood star!
