How Will Porcelain Veneers Drastically Alter My Smile?

veneersMany patients undergo multiple cosmetic dental procedures; yet never find the results they’re looking for. If you’re embarrassed of your smile and often find yourself hiding it away from others, porcelain veneers are the ideal procedure for you. A veneer can dramatically change the appearance of an unattractive tooth by covering the original shape and forming a new, improved one.

If you believe that your smile isn’t as beautiful as it should be, then you’re not alone. Studies show that 81 percent of Americans think that their teeth are unattractive. Cosmetic procedures, such as professional teeth whitening, don’t work for everyone. San Diego dentist Dr. David Eshom corrects flawed smiles in two dental visits with porcelain veneers.

How Can Veneers Improve My Smile?

Each veneer is uniquely crafted to meet your specific needs. Veneers are created from thin porcelain to ensure a natural correction that lays flat against the unattractive tooth. The best feature of porcelain veneers is that they can do so much. A single shell can brighten the appearance of a severely discolored tooth. Along with enhancing tooth color, these thin shells can conceal cracks and gaps.

If you suffer from an oddly shaped tooth, Dr. Eshom will bond a veneer to the front surface of the tooth, to completely change the shape. Patients with crooked smiles are pleased to learn that instead of wearing braces for multiple years, Dr. Eshom can simply bond a veneer over the crooked tooth to create a straighter looking smile.

Why Should I Choose Veneers?

Store-bought whitening products aren’t as strong or effective as professional treatment. However, professional teeth whitening can take multiple applications to successfully form a pearly, white smile. Dr. Eshom can create your dental veneer in a brighter shade than your natural tooth. He will then bond the shell onto the tooth to create a permanent correction.

Veneers are custom-made; therefore you can expect each shell to look like the surface of a natural tooth. For patients who are hesitant to invest in veneers, Dr. Eshom recommends testing the results of dental bonding before completely committing to this permanent treatment.

Another benefit of porcelain veneers is that they’re stain resistant.

Are Veneers Right for Me?

Are you wondering if veneers are right for you? Dr. Eshom suggests that you take a look in the mirror. Are you happy with the appearance of your smile? Here are some questions that you can ask yourself to determine if this cosmetic procedure is the best one for you.

  • Would I be happier with a whiter smile?
  • Do I like my gap between my two front teeth?
  • How do I feel about the shape, size, color of the teeth that show when I smile?
  • Are my teeth slightly overlapped or widely spaced? Do I want braces or a quicker solution?
  • Would front teeth of a different shape make my smile look larger or more youthful?

After you ask yourself these questions, discuss your answers with Dr. Eshom at your cosmetic consultation to determine if you would benefit from porcelain veneers.
