Spring is one of the most beautiful times of the year.
As the temperature warms, trees grow new green leaves. Flowers bloom, and songbirds return from their winter migration.
It’s a lovely time.
It also may be a good time to improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry. One of the simplest ways to do that is with the veneers we create for our patients at Holladay Dental Studio.
The team at our dentist office can help you no matter if you live in Holladay, UT, in Salt Lake City, or anywhere in between.
What Are Veneers?
Dental veneers can be explained by comparing them with wood veneers.
If you are familiar with wood veneers, then you know their purpose is to change the appearance of a piece of furniture or another object. Wood veneers are thin strips of wood that are bonded to the exterior of the object in question, whether it is made of metal or some other kind of wood.
Dental veneers serve a similar purpose. They are a thin layer of material that can be bonded to the front of your teeth. This can dramatically change the appearance of your teeth and your smile.
Some people have compared dental veneers to fake fingernails for your teeth. The difference is that fake fingernails may last for a few weeks while dental veneers can last for decades with proper care.
How Veneers Work
All veneers are bonded to the recipients’ teeth, but all veneers are not the same.
With many veneers, dentists have to prepare your teeth to accept them. This means removing some of the enamel from the front of your teeth. veneers are designed to fit over the reshaped teeth.
Some people find this process uncomfortable. Some people don’t like the idea of removing part of their otherwise healthy tooth structure.
Thankfully, our patients have the option of another kind of veneers. DURAthin veneers don’t require any prep work. This makes the process of getting them easier to handle.
What Can Veneers Do?
The short answer is that veneers can completely transform your smile.
If you’ve been embarrassed by or ashamed of your teeth, veneers can improve your confidence. When you have the smile that you want, you can feel more comfortable in social and professional situations.
Some people feel more confident when they are confident about their smiles.
The long answer is that veneers can correct almost any problem you can have, with the exception of replacing missing teeth.
Here are some specific benefits you may want to consider:
Straighten Your Teeth
If you are an adult with crooked teeth, you may wish your teeth were straight. However, you may be hesitant to pursue orthodontic treatment.
Veneers won’t straighten your teeth, but they can give you the appearance of straight teeth.
Fill In Your Gaps
Again, this is a problem that may be fixable with orthodontic treatment like Invisalign. As an alternative, veneers can close the gaps to give your smile a more uniform appearance.
Even Your Smile
If you have crooked teeth, then your teeth may be unevenly spaced. Some teeth can look pressed into one another, and others may be turned sideways in your mouth.
Veneers can transform your smile into one that looks like all your teeth are parallel and evenly spaced.
Fix Your Broken Teeth
Accidents happen, and some of those accidents can damage our teeth. Getting hit with a ball or an elbow, falling down, or biting into something hard can cause part of a tooth or teeth to chip away.
We can also wear down our teeth by biting our nails or using our teeth to open things.
Veneers can repair those broken, chipped, or worn down teeth no matter how they got that way.
Whiten Your Teeth
Teeth whitening products can remove stains from your teeth. They cannot fix teeth that have changed color for other reasons like injuries or the side effect of certain medications.
With veneers, your smile can be as white and as bright as you would like it to be.
What Do You Want Your Smile To Look Like?
If you want to change one thing or multiple things about your teeth, DURAthin veneers from Holladay Dental Studio can make those changes possible. You don’t have to feel embarrassed by your smile. Instead, you can have a smile that you are proud to share in person and on social media.
