If you are considering veneers, you want to make sure that you get the results you’re looking for. You want a smile that will be attractive, not just in itself, but in combination with the rest of your facial appearance. You also want a smile that looks attractive in the ways that you smile.
Digital Smile Design (DSD) gives us the tools to ensure your smile is beautiful in all these ways, which helps us get better results from your veneers.
Veneers Are a Great Tool for a Smile Makeover
When you are looking to transform your smile, there is no better approach than using dental veneers, sometimes called porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin facades of advanced ceramic that bond to the front of your teeth. They are an ideal choice for a smile makeover because they can give you essentially an entirely new smile in just one procedure.
That’s because veneers can correct:
- Tooth gaps
- Crooked teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Worn teeth
- Small or poorly shaped teeth
And veneers can do it all in one procedure. Usually in less than a month, you can have a whole new smile.
Veneers Can Also Go Badly Wrong
Veneers have the power to transform your smile, power that can turn out either really well or really poorly, depending on your procedure. When veneers go wrong, it’s often because they:
- Look fake
- Don’t match with your natural teeth
- Are too large or bulky
- Are too white
- Don’t match your style
These complaints can all be avoided by working with the right cosmetic dentist, a dentist who has the training and tools to ensure you get results you’ll love.
First of all, the best cosmetic dentist for you won’t recommend veneers made out of materials that don’t look like natural teeth. You’ll get veneers that look like natural teeth.
Second, a dentist will know better than to look at your teeth in isolation. Veneers have to blend properly with your other teeth, if your smile is going to reveal both veneered and unveneered teeth. When veneers are used to make your teeth look larger, whether we’re repairing wear or building up small teeth, it’s important to make sure that they don’t look too large for your mouth. The same goes for whiteness–they shouldn’t be too white for your face. They should look like they belong there.
Finally, it’s important to realize that every person’s smile is unique. The perfect smile for someone else is not the perfect smile for you. You have a style and your veneers should reflect that.
