Think About Getting Dental Veneers

If you don't like the way your teeth look, there are different options out there for you. One of them is to get veneers. With veneers, you can get the look for your teeth that you want. But, what are veneers?


Veneers are thin pieces of material that are adhered to your teeth. They can be a dental porcelain, but it's more likely these days that your doctor will use some kind of resin that is designed specifically for dental use. The resin will be more durable than porcelain is, but will still have all the same benefits that you are looking for. The veneers can be tinted so that they will give you a whiter looking smile. They are also generally shaped so that it looks like your teeth are evenly shaped and sized. If you are going to get veneers, there is a process that you need to go through. 


When you are getting veneers, the first part of the process is to make some decisions. You and your dentist are going to have to get together to decide exactly which teeth you want to get veneers on. Your dentist will generally recommend that you not get veneers on all your teeth. Instead, they are going to recommend that you get veneers on those teeth that sometimes get called your social teeth. Those are the teeth that people are going to see when you open your mouth or smile. You could probably talk to your dentist about getting veneers on all your teeth, but that's going to cost you a lot of money and be a very time-consuming process. Other decisions you and your dentist are going to have to make include things like what color your veneers should be as well as what size the new veneers should be. 


The next thing you are going to have to do is to have some molds made of your mouth. That way your dentist will have an accurate representation of your mouth for them to make your veneers from. The mold will guarantee will make sure that the veneer will fit on your teeth the way that they should and that they will fit in your mouth comfortably. 

If you don't like the way that your teeth look, you may want to talk to your dentist or a dentist like Rutherford Gregory S DDS about getting veneers. They may give you the look that you are wanting to have.
