How Veneers Can Transform Your Smile: A Comprehensive Guide

At Southland Dental Care, we understand that a beautiful smile is important to your overall confidence and wellbeing. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, veneers may be a great option to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are placed over the front of the teeth to improve their appearance. They can be used to correct a variety of cosmetic issues, such as discoloration, chips, cracks, and misalignments. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at how veneers can transform your smile and what you should know before getting them.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are typically made of porcelain or composite resin and are custom-designed to fit over the front of your teeth. They are bonded to the teeth with a strong adhesive and can last for 10-15 years with proper care.

The Benefits of Veneers

There are many benefits to getting veneers, including:

  1. A brighter, whiter smile – Veneers can cover up stains and discoloration that cannot be removed with teeth whitening.
  2. Improved tooth shape and size – Veneers can help correct uneven or misshapen teeth for a more symmetrical smile.
  3. Increased confidence – A beautiful smile can give you a boost of confidence and help you feel better about your appearance.
  4. Improved oral health – Veneers can help protect damaged teeth and prevent further damage from occurring.

The Veneers Procedure

Getting veneers typically requires two to three visits to the dentist. During your first appointment, Dr. Michael Abaian, our experienced cosmetic dentist at Southland Dental Care, will evaluate your teeth and determine if veneers are the best option for you. He will then take impressions of your teeth to create custom veneers that fit perfectly over your teeth.

During your second visit, Dr. Abaian will prepare your teeth for the veneers by removing a small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth. This ensures that the veneers will fit properly and look natural. He will then bond the veneers to your teeth using a special adhesive.

Caring for Your Veneers

Veneers require the same level of care as your natural teeth. This means brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings. It’s also important to avoid biting or chewing on hard objects, as this can damage your veneers.

Choosing a Veneers Specialist

Choosing the right dentist to perform your veneers procedure is essential for achieving the best results. Look for a dentist with experience in cosmetic dentistry and a proven track record of successful veneers procedures.
