At Flower Dental, one of our highlights is helping patients discover a brilliant new smile. For many patients, veneers can provide a dramatic, quick transformation for teeth that are chipped, stained, and even deeply discolored. Veneers can also alter the length and size of misshapen teeth and can even help rotated teeth suddenly appear straight. Veneers represent the ultimate in combining dental art and science to create a smile makeover.
Like a contact lens, veneers are paper-thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the outside of your natural teeth. Although the material is thin, it is possible to incorporate many unique features into the ceramics, replicating any look you want to create.
Easily & Permanently Whiten Your Smile Years of drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes or eating highly pigmented foods eventually take their toll on your teeth, turning them an unattractive shade of yellow or brown. Stained enamel can be bleached at home or by your dentist, but it can become stained again. If you want to whiten your smile for good, dental veneers may be a good fit for you. Veneers are largely stain-resistant, so you won’t have to worry about discoloration or needing to have your veneers whitened.
Fix Minor Cosmetic Problems Sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics”, veneers can sometimes treat slightly crooked or gapped teeth that would otherwise be treated with braces or other orthodontics. Veneers are attached to the front surfaces of your teeth – so they camouflage minor orthodontic problems once they’re applied. Your natural teeth may still be gapped or crooked, but nobody will know except you and Dr. Flower. It’s important to note that veneers cannot always replace orthodontic treatment. Dr Flower will let you know if veneers are a good option for you.
Replace Damaged Enamel Enamel is strong, but not indestructible. Your enamel may be worn down from overzealous tooth brushing or eaten away by highly acidic foods and drinks. The stomach acid associated with acid reflux disease can also damage your enamel. This can become a cause for concern, because lost enamel doesn’t grow back. Fortunately, it can be replaced. Veneers are an excellent treatment for teeth with enamel abrasion or enamel erosion and are aesthetically pleasing at the same time.
