When meeting someone new, one of the first things they will likely notice about you is your smile. According to ScienceDirect, it is well-documented that people develop a stigma toward appearance, including that smile. On the flip side, your smile may also make you feel uncomfortable or less confident when meeting new people for the first time.
Fortunately, though you may consider your smile permanent, dental technology advances now allow dentists to create amazing treatment methods, such as dental veneers. It can instantly improve the appearance of your teeth. And, with veneers, there is no need to worry about a bout of social anxiety the next time you want to flash that beautifully unique smile you carry.
At Krengel Dental, we feel dedicated to making our clients feel as comfortable as possible in their own skin. That’s why we provide options like beautiful, customized veneers and more.
Ceramic, porcelain, or composite veneers are tooth-like shells. The dentist attaches them to the natural teeth to close gaps and improve how the surface of the tooth appears. Dentists design each set of veneers to suit each patient’s specific teeth.
The primary purpose of these veneers would be to cover up teeth that look stained, close gaps, or even out the length of teeth. It will generally improve the appearance of one’s smile with a simple cut-and-paste method.
The type of veneer that you should choose depends on your budget and how long-lasting you want the results to be.
Veneers might also improve your self-esteem!
We start the veneer application process by taking an impression of your teeth to send to our lab. While we wait for your permanent set of veneers, our dentists will fit a temporary set to try out the mold and make adjustments. We will remove a layer of your tooth’s enamel to attach the temporary veneers with removable glue.
While wearing the temporary set, it is essential to maintain proper oral hygiene. Avoid overly sticky or hard foods.
After the lab matches the exact shape, size, and color of your natural teeth, we will schedule an appointment to apply the new veneers. If you noticed issues with your temporary set, we will make the necessary changes before applying the permanent ones. And once we bond your new set of veneers, we will also advise you on proper care so you can start enjoying your smile right away!
