How Dental Veneers Can Give You the Smile You Have Been Wanting

June 11, 2021

Dr. Sheldon Sullivan in Gilbert, Arizona offers veneers for our patients needing to fix flaws in their smiles. Using these wafer-thin shells–created out of porcelain or composite resin—and bonding them onto the front tooth surfaces can make your smile beautiful again.

Veneers are customized to fit over your teeth which let them give you the natural-looking smile you deserve. Dental Veneers can fix a variety of minor smile flaws and today we are going to take a closer look at three of them:

Sometimes our habits can impact our teeth. Even if you brush and floss daily, if you regularly drink staining drinks such as coffee, tea, wine or soda, your teeth may pay the price with discoloration. Eating tomato-based sauces, curries, blackberries, blueberries, and cherries can all stain tooth enamel. Tobacco can have the same effect, turning your teeth yellow or brown. While tooth whitening products can help, the teeth can become discolored again. With dental veneers, can make all the difference. Because dental veneers are stain-resistant, your teeth will look brighter longer.

Another cosmetic reparation dental veneers provide are fix gaps between teeth and teeth which are slightly crooked. While braces are an optimum fix, not everyone can or wants to go through a smile alignment process. So for minor corrections, dental veneers can fit the bill perfectly. they are attached to the front surfaces of the teeth which means they don’t exactly change the positioning of the teeth, but, they can camouflage them so that no one can tell the difference.

While tooth enamel is the strongest material in the human body, it can still be worn down by brushing too hard or eating acidic foods like tomatoes, citrus fruits and drinks like coffee, alcohol, and soda. If you have pregnancy nausea or acid reflux, you may also be inviting enamel erosion. The problem is, enamel cannot grow back. This is where dental veneers come into play, as they are perfect for bonding to enamel and protecting it.
