Find out how dental veneers could boost your smile’s aesthetic value.

Do you wish your smile were as perfect as the smiles of the actors and actresses you see on TV? What if your Charlottesville dentist Dr. Michael J. Tisdelle told you that there was a way you can get that Hollywood smile without invasive or painful cosmetic treatments? It Veneersmight sound too good to be true, but dental veneers are anything but.

How do veneers work?

If you’ve never seen veneers before they are very thin but durable shells made from translucent porcelain that your Charlottesville cosmetic dentist will bond to the front surface of your teeth using a special dental resin. Even though veneers are thin it’s still required that some enamel is removed ahead of time so that there is room to accommodate the veneers. After all, we don’t want an unnatural and bulky smile!

What issues are dental veneers right for?

There are many problems that can benefit from veneers including,

  • Severe stains that don’t respond to teeth whitening
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Minor overlapping or misshapen teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth

Dental veneers are not an appropriate treatment for teeth weakened by decay or requiring large fillings. In these cases, a dental crown is a better way to preserve the rest of your natural tooth and to ensure more serious damage doesn’t occur.

Also, if you grind your teeth or clench your jaw these are things to discuss with us during your consultation, as veneers may not be the right option for you.
