A confident smile imparts a positive impression both personally and professionally. If the appearance of your teeth or gums is preventing you from flashing a friendly grin, there’s a quick and easy solution: Veneers.
At Berger Family Dental in Reynoldsburg, Ohio, Robert Berger, DDS has improved the smiles of countless patients with dental veneers. Extremely versatile, veneers can correct more aesthetic issues than you realize.
Dental veneers are thin, wafer-like shells that cover the front surfaces of your teeth. Dr. Berger typically uses porcelain veneers since this material is durable, stain-resistant, and looks just like your natural enamel, right down to the opalescence.
If you have tooth discoloration or stains that are resistant to whitening treatments, veneers are your answer. They are available in a multitude of shades. Dr. Berger helps you select the one that works best for you. An added bonus, veneers are stain-resistant so they’ll stay white and bright.
Veneers can also hide a variety of dental imperfections, such as:
Veneers can give you that Hollywood smile with uniform, white teeth, but they also look incredibly natural.
The first step: Dr. Berger removes a small amount of enamel from your teeth to make room for the veneers. The amount of the enamel he removes is equal to the paper-thin width of the new veneers so that they are flush with your other teeth.
Next, Dr. Berger takes impressions of your teeth so he can send them to a dental lab where the veneers are custom-made just for you. Once your veneers are ready, you return to the office and they are bonded in place on each individual tooth. After any necessary adjustments to ensure that everything fits seamlessly and you’re happy with the outcome, you’re free to introduce the world to your new, dazzling smile.
Regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing is all it takes to care for your new veneers. Dental veneers are tough, but they can still stain, so daily care is important, and you should avoid foods and habits that cause stains, like coffee and smoking.
When you take good care of your veneers, they will serve you well for 5-15 years, or more. And good oral hygiene keeps your teeth healthy from the inside out.
