Never show your teeth when you smile because of chips, stains, or gaps? Porcelain veneers can change that.
At Fremaux Dental Care in Slidell, LA, Britney Beard, DDS, sees first-hand how veneers transform smiles — and self-confidence. Here she breaks down this simple procedure and the changes they can make.
Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells placed over the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. They are made of porcelain, which is incredibly durable, stain resistance, and have a natural appearance. Porcelain veneers can last for 10 to 15 years with proper care.
Veneers are highly versatile. Here are some of the most common reasons patients of Fremaux Dental Care opt for veneers:
Veneers can cover up deep stains or discoloration that can’t be removed with teeth whitening.
Veneers can repair chips and cracks in your teeth, restoring their natural shape and strength.
Not everyone needs years of orthodonture work to correct small gaps or spaces between your teeth. Chances are veneers can cover them.
Veneers can camouflage crooked teeth or reshape teeth that are too small, too pointy or have other cosmetic issues.
If your teeth are worn down from grinding or clenching, veneers can help restore their length and shape.
Veneers cover the surface of your teeth and can create a more harmonious and balanced smile. Dr. Beard designs your veneers to match your natural teeth' size, shape, and color or create a new look that complements your facial features.
Veneers can mask the appearance of overlapping teeth, making them look straighter and more aligned.
Getting dental veneers typically requires two to three office visits. Here’s what you can expect during each step:
