Have you thought about dental veneers?
Even if you have a healthy smile, you may not like the appearance of your teeth. Whether, you have worn, slightly crooked, or gaps between teeth, veneers may be the solution.
You may think you’re unfamiliar with dental veneers, but you’ve probably seen them everywhere and didn’t realize it. Veneers populate the mouths of movie stars and models, giving them bright, symmetrical smiles. For decades, they were one of the secrets of the stars, but no longer!
Dr. Caitlin Hulver, your dentist in Fairfax, offers celebrity-caliber veneers to patients just like you.
Dental veneers are wafer-thin—but sturdy—tooth shells that go over the fronts of existing teeth. Veneers conceal a variety of tooth flaws, including:
- Short or worn teeth—giving you a symmetrical smile
- Stubborn tooth discoloration—providing a uniform tone across teeth
- Small gaps between teeth
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Gummy smiles
Your dentist examines your smile to make sure dental veneers are the right option for you. She will consider your smile goals, the state of your teeth and gums, and any health concerns that you might have. During your exam and conversation with Dr. Hulver, we encourage you to ask questions and discuss outcomes.
If dental veneers are the best option for your smile goals, your dentist begins the process—seeing to the creation of quality dental veneers that enhance your smile and provide the results you’ve been looking for.
You can choose a single veneer if you have a misshapen, discolored, or worn tooth, or several dental veneers to conceal a variety of flaws across several teeth. We always color and shape our restorations to complement your smile.
Taking Care of Your New Smile
We bond your dental veneers to your teeth, which means they are permanent restorations. We also provide instructions to help you care for and make the most of your new veneers. You want them to last for a long time, and with proper care, they can.
It’s essential to visit your dentist regularly for your oral care. You’ll also want to maintain a good oral hygiene routine at home. The right dental care keeps your gums healthy, saves your smile from dental health issues, and contributes to the longevity of your dental veneers.
If you grind and clench your teeth, ask your dentist about a nightguard to help prevent tooth and veneer breakage.
