You Could Revive Your Smile With Dental Veneers
You are waiting in the checkout line at the grocery. As you wait, you can’t help looking at the covers of the celebrity magazines. Often, someone with a beautiful smile is beaming on the cover. There’s a good chance that whoever is pictured has benefitted from cosmetic dentistry.
While general dentistry is the foundation of our practice at Oregon Smile Care Center, we also offer cosmetic dentistry because we know how valuable it can be to our patients. Dental veneers are one of our favorite cosmetic services because they can do so much for your smile.
Find out if dental veneers could help you by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Hanson, our dentist in Salem, OR. Call 503-837-2718 or contact us online to make your appointment.
The process for getting dental veneers is pretty simple, too. In a matter of just a few weeks, you could have a magazine-cover-worthy smile of your own.
Straighter Smiles With Dental Veneers
How many people do you know with perfectly straight teeth? It’s rare, and more than likely, the people you know with those perfectly aligned smiles have received some kind of cosmetic dental care.
They may have received some kind of orthodontic treatment, like Invisalign®, or they may have dental veneers of their own. Why do people do this? Because they know that having straight teeth makes their smiles look nicer. Maybe more importantly, they know that they feel more confident as a result of having a nice smile.
Now, your teeth may not be as straight as you would for a number of reasons. Your teeth could be crooked. You could have gaps between two or more of your teeth. You could have teeth that look crowded together. You may have a combination of those issues.
Invisalign can fix those issues in about 12 months on average, but dental veneers could change your smile in a matter of a couple weeks. We offer both of these services at Oregon Smile Care Center, and we have seen how both have worked for our patients.
Where Invisalign pushes your teeth into different positions, dental veneers are more like a shell that covers the front of your teeth. Each set of veneers is custom-made to fit your teeth, and your veneers can give you the appearance of a smile with teeth that are parallel and evenly spaced – no gaps and no crowding.
Call 503-837-2718 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Hanson to find out if dental veneers can straighten your smile.
Repair Chipped And Worn Teeth With Dental Veneers
People use their teeth every day. Just like a tool that gets used frequently, teeth can get worn down and damaged with time.
More than likely, this is not something you have done intentionally. How many kernels of popcorn have you bitten into accidentally in your life? Do you ever bite into hard candies? Do you use your teeth to open things? Have you ever bitten your fingernails?
These are things that many of us do. They can and do cause wear and tear on our teeth. This may be a gradual process that causes your teeth to look worn down over time. At the same time, you may have chips in your teeth as a result biting into something that was a little too hard or because of an accident.
If you only one or two teeth were affected, then we may recommend dental bonding. This uses the same material we use to make our tooth-colored dental fillings to rebuild those teeth.
But what if several teeth are worn or chipped? Dental veneers can fix them all in one fell swoop. Your teeth can be restored to their original shape and size with a custom-made set of veneers just for you.
Again, you can come to Oregon Smile Care Center to learn more about this cosmetic service.
Whiter Teeth with Dental Veneers
White teeth – much like straight teeth – just look nicer. White teeth look cleaner, and they appear healthier, too.
Professional teeth whitening is one way to remove stains from your teeth. It’s important to note that staining is only one reason your teeth can become discolored.
Injuries, illnesses, and side effects of medications can affect the color of your teeth as well. If your enamel is worn down, the yellower dentin beneath the surface may show through as well. Teeth whitening won’t work in those situations.
But dental veneers will.
As mentioned above, dental veneers cover your teeth. As a result, veneers can give you the white smile you want in most cases.
Veneers Can Fix All Those Problems At The Same Time
We would be remiss if we didn’t point out possibly the biggest benefit of dental veneers. They can straighten, restore, and whiten your teeth at the same time.
To see the results for yourself, you first need to schedule a consultation at our dentist office in Salem, OR.
